puchasing and upgrading LabVIEW

I just need some advice / looking for opinions. 

I was just hired at a new company, partly for my LabVIEW experience.

My boss has the LV 2014 SP1 full development version, and has the application builder add on.  

He would like to upgrade his version to the Professional Development system and buy the professional development system for me.

 

The issue is, he would like to do both with two different quotes, each under $5000.  Over 5k requires a ROI calculation, which is 'difficult and time consuming to get approved'.

 

Does NI run any specials on the Pro version that would put it under $5000?

 

Does it make sense that he would want to upgrade when he already has the application builder toolkit?

 

Thanks.

This is probably something you need to discuss with you local sales representative. Do you want to keep it at 2014 or go to 2020?

Pro has a few more features over "Full + App builder", mostly in the "Software Engineering Tools" section (Details). it only makes sense if he needs these tools. The "diff&merge" might be useful if both of you share code.


LabVIEW Champion. It all comes together in GCentral GCentral
What does "Engineering Redefined" mean??

I am sure he wants to go to LV2020, as he is a software programmer, but doesn't do much with LV.  

 

I contacted NI and received a name, left messages and have yet to get a response.  I will try texting, so he doesn't think it is a spam call.
