Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The biggest issue is the cost of the FileNet, because the license cost is very high. If a customer doesn't have good technical guides that are aware of the license calculation, they will pay too much. FileNet's license calculation depends on the processor and number of users. So my advice to a new customer is to be very careful with your calculations before purchasing FileNet."
  • "It is still a leading ECM solution provider, however the cost to implement and maintain are higher than other solutions."
  • "FileNet is not cheap, but you absolutely get what you pay for. ​"
  • "For small scale industries, they allow different options. They can do open source. It is the complexity of the data security that they should think about before they choose."
  • "For the medium scale or large scale, I would recommend FileNet. FileNet is free of licensing expenses, thus good for the money. It is not expensive, but worth for the money, especially for medium scale and large scale industries."
  • "​There are lots of components to the product. Make sure before you invest that you know which components you need.​​"
  • "1. It will be more expensive than estimated to setup. 2. You will need to double the staff while you are running the old system and installing the new system. 3. Depending on the number of documents to be migrated, make sure you understand the potentially massive amount of time and effort required to migrate the existing content to the new platform."
  • "The physical space that we have gained back pays for the service. Therefore, it has reduced our operating costs overall. We have definitely seen ROI. I would estimate $30,000 a year."
