Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Business One is reasonable considering the functionality.""In terms of price, it's fair, but the problem is with AMC.""Its price is reasonable. People are able to spend that much.""Its licensing model is good. There is a one-off payment for the software license, and after that, you only need to pay the annual maintenance fee. Compared to other cloud-based systems, this cost model is quite reasonable for SMEs.""We pay annually. It is around 800 a month.""We feel that the licensing fees are a bit on the higher side.""We compared the Microsoft solution with Oracle NetSuite, as they have a price decrease. It is, however, not that much cheaper, and the price is comparable to SAP.""Its price is reasonable. We have about 200 licenses. We have to pay every year for the license."
