Pay-As-You-Go Software = Ticket to Savings

In yesterday’s post “Pay-As-You-Go: The New Approach to SaaS” we talked about the advantages of pay-as-you-go charges versus the traditional per user/month system and all the extras one has to pay for when using a subscription-based software service.

But how does VisitBasis’ new pay-per-use system for its Mobile Retail Execution and Merchandising Tool translate into savings for real-life businesses?

Pay-As-You-Go: The New Approach to SaaS

In the new world of SaaS (Software as a Service) it seems very convenient to think of software licenses as monthly subscriptions. However, one can quickly loose track of what is being paid for, especially when these subscriptions feel like a good deal in comparison to paying the full software license upfront.

This is why VisitBasis developed the new and innovative pay-as-you-go approach to its mobile retail visit planning and management tool. With this new payment system, customers are only charged for visits actually started, at the rate of $0.20 per visit, with no minimums.

For customers of all sizes this can translate into significant savings comparing to the traditional pay-per-month approach, since they will only be paying for active users and their usage and not for office-only/admin users and idle periods (such as weekends, holidays, configuration and setup, etc).

See in the below chart a comparison between VisitBasis’ pay-as-you-go and the traditional pay-per-month systems:

VisitBasis Unveils the Only Pay-As-You-Go Mobile Retail Execution Solution on the Market

Innovative pay-per-use system allows for greater budget flexibility by charging on a per-visit basis and doing away with license and subscription costs.

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) September 19, 2014

VisitBasis web interface Account tab, with the new pay-as-you-go system.
Up until now, Retail Execution and Merchandising professionals had only two payment options when it came to automating their field team activities: They could either invest a considerable amount in a software license (which sometimes lasts for only one year) or they could pay a monthly per-user fee. Both options have been proven inconvenient, not only because of budget constraints but also due to the frequent account issues resulting from user turnover, especially when one considers that Retail Execution and Merchandising is a fast-moving industry that sometimes relies on seasonal or temporary field agents.

With that in mind, VisitBasis has launched the pay-as-you-go system for its mobile retail visit planning and management app. Now users pay only for visits actually started, at a rate of $0.20 per visit, and they can add credits to their accounts at any time. Additionally, VisitBasis is currently giving $50 worth of visits (equivalent to 250 visits) for new users to test its solution.
“We designed this new payment system with businesses of all sizes in mind”, says Sergey Gorbunov, CEO and President of VisitBasis. “While small business owners will have increased budget flexibility, large field marketing operations will no longer have to deal with account issues caused by user turnover.”

VisitBasis is a mobile retail visit planning and management system, consisting of a mobile app for field agents and a web interface for management and supervisory staff. The app works on iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones and tablets and is available for download on the Apple Store and Google Play.

VisitBasis – Built for Businesses of All Sizes

Any small business owner can tell how costly it is to start up a new company, and the costs that are incurred in addition to producing the actual product one wants to sell. So it is hard to justify investing hundreds (or thousands!) of dollars a year in one piece of software, even though it would help with order placement and the improvement of product presentation at the point-of-sale, which could lead to more sales.

VisitBasis is a complete in-store execution and merchandising tool, and it was designed with businesses of all sizes in mind.

For small businesses, VisitBasis offers, among others:

  • Easy to configure web interface, straightforward app, no software installation or deployment necessary – no need for IT department or consultant.
  • Scalability – VisitBasis was designed to grow with you and your budget. A homemade gourmet food operation could start-up with only one person in charge of everything and probably with an irregular schedule of retail visits, so it will only pay for the visits this one person makes. No software licenses, no minimum number of users, no full-month payment, all the advanced tools and features that VisitBasis offers to help this small business analyze and improve its in-store execution, leading to increase in sales and company growth. 
  • No need to invest in expensive hardware and training – VisitBasis is cross-platform and works seamlessly across iPhones, iPads and Android smartphones and tablets, so your field reps can bring the devices that they already own and know how to operate. 
For large corporations or field marketing operations, VisitBasis is a powerful and complete tool, with all the advanced features required for effective retail execution and merchandising:

  • It supports an unlimited number of divisions, unlimited number of users - each with its individual security level, and thousands of SKUs.
  • Easy to connect with enterprise systems either through Excel XML file export/import or through Rest API.
  • Additionally, VisitBasis runs on Google Cloud, providing a safe and robust environment able to handle large amounts of data traffic and is also the most reliable in terms of service availability, even if your business works across several countries.

BYOD, bring your own device, byod retail execution app, byod merchandising app, byod sales app, byod app for retail visits
Retail Execution and Merchandising is a fast-moving business, having no time to waste with issues such as lack of field rep productivity. With tools such as advanced task setting, visit verification, route planning and ordering, VisitBasis allows for a dynamic workflow and improved communication between management and field agents.

With the high turnover rate of some areas of the business, especially the ones that call for seasonal work, it is very costly to provide equipment for every single field agent, not only due to gadget price but also the time that goes into training. VisitBasis provides a uniform interface across most smartphones and tablets available today on the market, so mobile agents can bring their own devices - the ones they are already used to operating.

Summarizing, with VisitBasis:

  • No need to invest in costly equipment - field agents can bring their own devices. VisitBasis works seamlessly accross iPhones, iPads, and Android smartphones and tablets. 
  • No training necessary - VisitBasis’ intuitive and user-friendly interface works in the same way across most smartphones and tablets. 
  • Unlimited number of devices per user - if the field rep’s standard device breaks or runs out of battery, for instance, he can use any other device available to him (even borrowed!) to log into VisitBasis and complete his tasks for the day. 
  • Work offline, then synchronize automatically once the device goes online - VisitBasis works even on less sophisticated tablets with only wi-fi access.
