We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"We have account based licensing. There are two or three types of licensing. One of them is based on the number of jobs, so we a license close to 4,000 jobs per day. The cost is based on the different modules, which we buy from them. If we a buy a hardware module, which we are presently using and integrating, that is an additional cost, but I'm not sure of the amount. Each module comes with a different cost."
"As we increase the number of tasks or jobs on the system, there are concerns about cost."
"We have a five-year contract with task-based licensing."
"This product saves hours in a day based on my experience working here versus other companies with manually operations."
"It works on task-based licensing."
"Licensing costs are around $3000 a year."
"Pricing can be steep, but you get what you pay for."
