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."
"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."
Information Not Available
"The new prices that we've received seem reasonable and comparable to the marketplace."
"We pay maintenance annually through Blue House of about $9,000. That's for our two environments: production and test."
"The pricing is pretty reasonable. That seems to help a lot versus other companies. There are no other fees aside from the standard licensing fees. There are other products out there where you pay based on how many jobs you run and so on, and I know that's very frustrating for users."
"The solution’s licensing model in terms of its flexibility and transparency regarding costs is pretty good. A person can buy the license, and if you decide to stop support, you can do that but still have the product. So, it's not like you're paying constantly to keep that license alive. Certainly, you want to keep support going too. Once you buy it, you own it. It's not like I have to keep paying somebody to keep using it."
"If you are willing to shop around to other vendors, you can possibly get a good price on your support license."
"Our annual maintenance cost is competitive for what we have and what they do."
"There are project, system, and server costs. Some of the things that they are doing is introducing new products. They are introducing what they call their Repository, which is a way for you to move a job. That doesn't cost anything to us, because it is reusing a tool called Transporter. The repository is the successor to Transporter, so we already own it and are sort of grandfathered in. But that new product requires a server and database, so now we have to go out and get a server and database. So, there is a cost there."
"...it is a pretty affordable scheduler tool that lets us do a lot. You get a lot of bang for the buck... The licensing model is hugely flexible."
