Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is $5000 per year per production license.""We have a yearly cost that we pay for the licensing. We do not pay any costs in addition to the licensing fees.""There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else.""The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive.""Opt for the three year subscription. It is 20% less than the yearly one.""ROI is huge. There are some secondary benefits, like analysts getting their post 5 PM time back or the ability to shorten all closing processes to a half or less.""It is $4,000 a year, so it is cheap versus other solutions. It also accomplishes three times the volume on the job in the same time (as the other solutions).​""I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."
