Pricing and Cost Advice
It is not cheap, but there is a return on investment in time saved and efficiency.We have a lease for approximately $10,000 USD per month.The annual cost is approximately $100,000 USD.We pay approximately $1,400 USD in total for between five-thousand and ten-thousand ports.It is not going to save you money, but that is not the point. The opportunity to stay competitive in the marketplace is not a cost.Cost is the primary factor behind why I would not give this product a perfect rating.The FlexPod licensing can adjust to your purse, i.e. there are different levels available for businesses of all sizes.Because the solution is now stable, we are saving about $100 million USD a year.
