For new Companion customers starting from release 2.9, the value-based, dynamic pricing model applies. In the value-based model, you must order a base item and you can add as many options to the base as necessary. Your total price comprises of the following items:

  • A one-time setup price for the base and for each additional option you select
    Note: The setup price also applies for any additional users at the renewal of a subscription.
  • A yearly subscription price for each additional option you select, based on the number of concurrent users
    • The base and the branding option have a setup price, but no subscription price.
    • The number of concurrent users is a ratio of the total number of users. The industry-standard value of this ratio is 75%. For example, if the total number of users is 500, the subscription price is calculated to include 375 concurrent users.
