Go From Freemium to Premium

 

Give Your Record Rescue an Upgrade

In 2016 Kindex debuted our “Freemium” plan: a free archive with limited records and features. Thank you for giving us a chance and trying us out! This year, our award-winning software features new archive plans that make the choice to upgrade a lot easier. Our new private and public archives give you unlimited records, collaborative features, and transcription tools all for less than the cost of a value meal. Together with our new Kindex Rewards program, our new Cloud and Closet archive plans support our committment to affordable archival software, because we believe everyone deserves to be remembered.

For Freemium users like you, this is your chance to be the record rescuer your family or society needs. With Freemium plans officially retiring on July 31st 2018, you’ll have the opportunity to choose a new plan that best fits your budget and needs.

 
 

Important: All “Freemium” Kindex users (free, personal archive limited to 50 records with no collaborative tools), must update to a Kindexer, Cloud, or Closet plan before July 31 2018. Freemium plans not updated by July 31, 2018 will be automatically updated to our free, Kindexer plan, which does not include a personal archive.
