Last year, we started offering a Corporate Annual Subscription License option. Sales for this option have exceeded our expectation, and it now makes up about 1/5 of our revenues.
Some of our users have commented that they cannot believe what a give-away this license is, and are wondering when we’re going to come to our senses and terminate it. Let’s just say we don’t have any plans to do so. Even though the revenue per user plummets under this pricing approach, we value the fact that we are gaining many more users of our software.
For an annual fee of $15,400 up to 10 users at an organization may all have full access to the following Sawtooth Software tools:
- CiW – Unlimited
- CBC Web with the Advanced Design Module
- CBC/Latent Class
- Adaptive Choice-Based Conjoint (ACBC)
- Advanced Simulation Module
Annual subscription license users receive current updates and upgrades as soon as they become available.
We’re offering the subscription license option because many of you want greater access to our tools, without having to justify and manage the purchase of each new component or upgrade. It’s much easier to set a budget based on an annual license, and with that annual fee you know you have access to the latest versions of nearly every tool in Sawtooth Software’s product line.
Licenses for more than 10 users are also available at a steep discount compared to the one-time purchase prices. We will continue to sell our standard one-time purchase licenses as before, as some customers find this a more affordable way to purchase just the tools they need, for particular limited projects.
