FlexBV is a commercial expansion from the existing Open-Source OpenBoardView. This expansion brings PDF cross referencing between BoardViews and Schematics, something which has long been desired and provides an immediate boost in repair productivity.
FlexBV is being sold on a perpetual licence model, single-seat with free upgrades for 12 months. The usage licence is similar to that which Borland Pascal/C++ used to use; it is like a book. You can take it to many places, but only one use concurrently.

Single licence cost is $79.00 USD. Currently Windows 7, 8 and 10 release is available, along with macOS 10.11+ and Linux Debian, RPM and plain binary.
