The solution is free for up to five users, making it a good starting point for many organizations, especially now that people are cash-strapped. The licensing costs for over 500 users start from $500 upwards, depending on their choice and if assets are attached to it. So an average license would be up to 10,000 per year for subscription on average. Subscription licensing includes technical support and all the features at no additional cost, and Perpetual licensing requires annual maintenance of about 15% of the initial cost.

We pay for an annual license charged per technician, not end-user. If I remember correctly, it's $1,000 or $2,000 a year for seven technicians.

The price of the solution is low. However, it still could be less expensive.

For 90 service agents and our need for a cloud solution with incident management and service request management, it annually costs around 12,000. If you need additional development or deployment support from the vendor, there might be an additional cost.

I'm not involved in the licensing of the solution. I have no idea how much the cost is. I couldn't say if it's reasonable or more on the expensive side.

In terms of cost and pricing, I'm not the person who pays for the tool, and I don't know if the price for the tool is fair or unfair. I have no idea about that. But I'm aware that it's quite expensive. The price could be reduced,

There's a yearly cost that's based on the number of licenses and the modules that you've purchased. The pricing is a bit high.

Its price is very lucrative. It would be great if the price can come down, but overall, its price is great. It is half or maybe one-third of the price of other market leaders.

We are on a yearly subscription and use the on-premises deployment model of the solution. For our 500 assets that are using the professional version of the solution, we pay somewhere between $4,000 and $5,000 per year. We don't pay any costs beyond the standard licensing fee. You might add on if you have more assets, for example, an operation number. They do have features where you might need to add extra fees above your standard cost.

The cost of licensing is approximately ten dollars per suite, per month. When scaling up, there are a lot of other expenses such as infrastructure, the telecommunication companies, etc. An annual maintenance contract is available for an extra cost. There are also consulting services available.

If you need a completed ITIL helpdesk system with Asset Management and Project Management without the hassle of having additional plug-in and can be additional costs, you might need to consider Servicedesk Plus. It's been in the marketing for more than 11years, with customers globally.
