Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution is certainly not the cheapest, but we win in time.""OpCon cost us $80,000 in 2017 money, and that included everything: support, installation, onsite assistance during the conversion, etc. It's been a worthwhile investment by far.""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."

"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."
