We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution is certainly not the cheapest, but we win in time.""Yearly, it's around $30,000.""Our licensing is on a yearly basis.""Our license is for 1000 jobs. Including support, the license and upgrades are 2000 euros a month.""Yearly, we're paying about $62,000. OpCon has an all-inclusive feature and module license, but you pay per task.""Our annual maintenance costs are $45,000. The initial cost is separate.""On a yearly basis our cost is between $25,000 and $30,000.""Annually, we pay $29,000. This is for a blanket policy that covers everything, like licensing and support."

"The price was fairly in line with other automation tools. I don't think it's exorbitantly expensive, relatively speaking.""I don't think we've ever had a problem with the pricing or licensing. Even the maintenance fees are very much in line. They are not excessive. I think for the support that you get, you get a good value for your money. It's the best value on the market.""It allows for lower operational overhead.""Currently, we are paying approximately $7,000 yearly, which includes support.""ActiveBatch is currently redesigning themselves. In the past, they were a low cost solution for automation. They had a nice tool that was very inexpensive. With their five-year plan, they will be more enhancement-driven, so they're trying to improve their software, customer service, and the way that their customers get information from them. In doing that, they're raising the price of their base system. They changed from one pricing model to another, which has caused some friction between ActiveBatch and us. We're working through that right now with them. That's one of the reasons why we're why we were evaluating other software packages.""If you compare ActiveBatch licensing to Control-M, you're looking at $50,000 as opposed to millions.""The pricing was fair. There are additional costs for the plugins. We have the standard licensing fees for different pieces, then we have the plugins which were add-ons. However, we expected that."
