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? Let’s see two case studies.* Small business in the food sector: 1 office-only user – owner  1 mobile user – sales/field marketing Average of 4 visits/business day Competition monthly cost: $60 (2 users) VisitBasis cost for 88 visits: $17.60 Monthly savings: $43.40 Regional food broker - sales and marketing agency: 4 office-only users – sales and operations management, merchandising, admin 15 regular mobile users – retail execution team 3 seasonal/temporary mobile users Average of 7 visits/mobile user/business day Competition monthly cost: $660 (22 users) VisitBasis

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 system

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 a

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.

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.
