At ConExpo this year we released new SaaS pricing for our HeavyBid construction estimating software. While much of our other software has been available with a monthly SaaS (Software as a Service) subscription for several years, HeavyBid has not been.
Even as most companies, including us, are getting away from concurrent
licensing and going to named licenses for each employee, we have decided to leave HeavyBid as concurrent licenses in the new model, although you will still be required to have named users. Thus if you have 12 people using HeavyBid, but only 5 subscriptions, all 12 names must be set up in our credentials system, but only 5 of them can be in HeavyBid
at one time.
But now if you need more licenses, instead of buying them with a capital expenditure, you can buy them in a monthly subscription, paid annually. This may be particularly important now with economic uncertainty. If you currently need several more periodic users to be in the estimating software, you could purchase one more license for just a year and then a year later make adjustments up or down as your business requires.
The monthly rate may appear to be high, but remember, these are concurrent licenses and the main reason we have left them that way is so that estimators, project managers, people taking quotes, business development people, etc. can all share the licenses without necessarily having their own.
The current SaaS pricing is as follows:
