We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The licensing cost is around $7,000 for user. This is an estimation."
"There is an additional fee for the server maintenance."
"The whole suite, not just the DI but the modeling software, the harvester, Mapping Manager — everything we have — is about $100,000 a year for our renewals. That works out to each module being something like $8,000 to $10,000."
"erwin's pricing was cheaper than its competitors."
"You buy a seat license for your portal. We have 100 seats for the portal, then you buy just the development licenses for the people who are going to put the data in."
"erwin is cheaper than other solutions and this should appeal to other buyers. It has a good price tag."
"The solution is aggressively priced."
"We operate on a yearly subscription and because it is an enterprise license we only have one. It is not dependent on the number of users."
