[Athen] Transition to Fusion

I work for Vispero on the technical side of things, so can't speak much to pricing or upgrade paths, but from a technical perspective, there is no downside. Fusion licenses will authorize standalone JAWS, standalone ZoomText, or both products installed as a bundle. There is no need to re-image, or install Fusion on all machines, etc. If you have a JAWS user who will only ever need JAWS, just use the JAWS installer, it will authorize with a Fusion license. Same goes for ZT.
Hope this helps,

I wrok for a state agency for the blind. We had a 50 seat JAWS license, and a 20 seat ZoomText license. We combined everything into a 60-seat Fusion license -- and it has worked out fine. Ultimately it should save us some money.

Hi all,

I am considering transitioning to Fusion. My campus has had a 5 user license for Zoom Text and a 10 user license for JAWS for the past 12+ years. If you have transitioned to Fusion, please share the positives and negatives. Is it recommended or should I keep my individual licenses?

Thanks for any input.
