Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't want to comment on the license cost, to be honest. It could be about $1,000 approximately per customer. However, it's very flexible in terms of the licensing costs depending on the volume and depending on the deal of installation.The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users.
