Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have a license with packages, and there are additional costs for extra components.""We have one of the best pricing available, but we can't disclose that information.""The pricing is fair.""They can improve its licensing. It is a bit expensive as compared to Microsoft and other tools.""They offer yearly as well as perpetual licenses.""It is expensive. We would like to extend it to many users, but we are currently restricting that because the cost is a constraint. If we are given a chance, we would love to expand it."
