I'm going to do the Wordsearch Crossover myself, just to protect the investment of the main resources I used in Logos under Accordance. Most of the resources I had planned to crossgrade made it into the package, so at that price, I can't beat it. :-)


Rick, I'll work on drafting that feature equivalent comparison and will send it to you.

My WS Crossover finished installation last night! And My Logos investment is protected! Now concerning the WS Crossover, I’m sure Accordance will revise the agreement in a way that’s fair for all parties involved! Thanks for the generous deal!

Rick, but what you say contradicts with the description of the BW Crossover page https://www.accordan...er13-Basic 8-10. and Here https://www.accordan...e-4-BibleWorks/

Here it says: This package is offered to owners of BibleWorks versions 8-10 who are purchasing Accordance for the first time.

I guess Accordance has to check this page again. 

 

We never changed the wording on the page, but we did change the policy in regard to our sales staff as they are approving the orders.

being an Accordance user, I am also a Wordsearch 12 user. Will there eventually be a way to migrate some or all of my resources into Accordance?

 

There’s really no way to do this because of both proprietary formats and licensing. That is, we can’t build a translation method to convert your WS formatted content over to Accordance in say something like a user tool because WS formats are proprietary and now owned by the company’s buyer. We could pursue licensing for content that is in the WS Library that’s not in ours, but realistically, many of the WS titles wouldn’t necessarily be a priority for us. When WS was bought out, the licensing is included in the sale to the new company (I assume and for the most part), so they are able to offer you copies of the content in their own proprietary format. Whether or not you have to pay extra for features in the software engine of the other company or upgrades to an impending new release is another matter. 

 

Having said all that, if you were really motivated to convert a particular book you have on another platform into Accordance, there’s always cut and paste into a User Tool. Believe it or not, I’ve done that myself before. It takes a while but can be done.

Rick,

Will the rest of the modules from CBL be included with our purchase of the WS Crossover Package? Mainly, The Greek Grammar. I know Harmony of the Gospels is still included but will not be produced as a separate module nor the interlinear.

Thanks!

Thank you Rick. I also have done the cut and paste thing but it is time consuming.

I know for certain the Greek grammar is coming.

I did share about Accordance's deal for Wordsearch users on my FB feed.  I tend to think they'll be happier with Accordance.

Hey Rick, 

The form to be filled out for the crossover, I can't fill it out on my computer. Do I print it out, fill it out, and then mail it in?

Print it, fill it out, take a picture and then email it. It’s faster that way.
I posted about the WS Crossover special on FB and Twitter

Just print it, fill it out, take a photo with your phone, and send it in. Although it’s required and important, it is a formality in the big picture. We want you to get the crossover!

I have a question about the crossgrade agreement, having gone through the list of modules included in the WS crossover package there are I think 23 which I currently don't own in Accordance.

 

Am I right in saying that the crossgrade agreement would only cover the modules I currently don't own in Accordance and not all the modules included in the WS crossover package, since I already own some of them?

 

How would this work in the event I were to transfer my whole Accordance library, would the appropriate modules be identified and not transferred? Should I make a list of the modules I currently don't own and agree these with Accordance prior to purchasing the WS crossover package?

Don't have an answer to the second part of your query (not quoted), but was wondering if you had a quick way to determine what modules you don't already have?

I think the crossover package offers value for myself, but I don't have a comprehensive comparison of what I would get added since there is no upgrade pricing (which is fair enough given the circumstances of its creation).

There's no easy way like when you purchase a custom upgrade, where the Accordance website will show you the custom upgrade price and the modules included for that price.

 

So I listed all the modules being offered in an Excel table, then went through them, ticking off the ones I already had and double checking against my Accordance library, you can search in the library for the module name. Took a bit of time but worth seeing what modules you don't already have and then weighing up if you need them. It certainly offers very good value for money.

It's easily the best value we're offering right now. Maybe ever to this point.
