Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
From my experience in this field, the product is reasonably priced, at least with the RESTful engine implementation. It's definitely not a cheap option. People say, "That's a fair amount of money to pay for a document generation tool." At the same time, you do get good functionality and the support is good.
We negotiated our prices many years ago, and while they go up a little bit here and there, they've been pretty steady.
For what you're getting, it's an extremely good value.
It is absolutely worth the value. They have flexibility, depending on what you're looking for from a buying standpoint. The current pricing models are quite flexible, with the ability to use it on an as-needed basis, or to get a perpetual license that covers a customer that might have extensive needs. I think it's pretty good.
CapEx fits our requirements, OpEx is higher due to the 20% service and maintenance cost, where we normally pay 15%.
They are fair and flexible. They are willing to work with your current architecture to make sure you have the best deal.
I can't advise anybody about pricing and licensing, but it was competitive. A lot of things we did look at were all volume-based, so it was a case of you buy a license to generate this many reports a year, and that's not something that I'm particularly interested in because it doesn't give you any idea - if we have future growth, or if we have a lean year - for budgeting reasons it's more difficult. With Windward it's a straight out license fee, whether we generate one page or we generate a million, it makes no difference.
