Eggplant is expensive. What makes it cheap for us is that in the company where I work, the more people that use it, the cheaper the licenses get. So it's kind of a deal in a way, the more you buy, the cheaper they are. To put it in perspective, if we think about it, their support is actually wrapped into the cost. So you can call and talk to them any time of day and they aren't going to send you a bill for it. Whereas, Katalon or QF-test, or SmartBear, like TestComplete, will send you a bill. They'll send you a bill at the end of the week. You call them up for a support issue, they'll bill you. But their install and product are pretty cheap. Katalon, TestComplete and QF-test are cheap tools, but their support doesn't come cheap, they'll stick you on it. Let's just put it into perspective. We had a team that didn't go through our company to get the licenses. They went through Eggplant to purchase the license and they purchased Manager as well. Functional for one year is $16,000. I don't know what that is in Quid or Pounds, but it's a lot. So now they added Manager and all that, and I think for one or two licenses with DIA and Manager, it ended up being $45,000 for two licenses, for a year.
