SONAR Platinum with Lifetime Updates. From June 1 through August 31 2016, purchasing or upgrading to SONAR Platinum will give the buyer free, lifetime updates of any future core features, enhancements, and fixes.Customers who purchase SONAR Platinum with Lifetime Updates will never again need to pay for another renewal of the Rolling Updates plan. Sonar (sound navigation ranging) is a technique that uses sound propagation (usually underwater, as in submarine navigation) to navigate, communicate with or detect objects on or under the surface of the water, such as other vessels. Two types of technology share the name 'sonar': passive sonar is essentially listening for the sound made by vessels; active sonar is emitting pulses of sounds. There's yet to be any public announcement regarding a Mac version, but Windows users can download Cakewalk by BandLab now, for free. All you need to do is sign up for a free BandLab account. If you're a current Sonar user and want more info on how this will affect you, read the latest Cakewalk forum post from BandLab Technologies CEO, here. The SONAR Mac prototype was discontinued, but was working, albeit in a limited capacity when compared to the standard Windows version. It was working well in and of itself at the time we were experimenting with it, however it lacks the ability to work with external AU/VST plugins. The Sonar billing engine is one of our best-loved features. The flexible software offers support for multi-month billing, automatic proration, geographical taxation, and more. All the power you need, backed by proper accounting practices. To make life even easier, Sonar integrates with numerous external services.
Damn, I crack me up sometimes!

More options, fewer headaches
Customer expectations are higher than ever. In a market with so many consumer options, fiber providers need to get flexible in order to stay competitive. The problem is, legacy software and flexibility don’t always go hand-in-hand. So, how to retain subscribers?
Sonar’s highly-adaptable platform lets you offer customers a variety of services and bundles, tailoring packages to their needs. No need for multiple billing softwares, no more manual provisioning, and no more replicating customer data.
Give customers control
Customers today want 24/7 access to services, support, and information. That can easily overwhelm a growing business, wreaking havoc on limited resources. In no time at all, delinquent accounts and simple package upgrades can turn into backed-up support tickets and lost revenue.
Sonar’s customer portal helps lighten the load. Give your customers the power to serve themselves: paying overdue invoices, updating payment information, and viewing data usage.
