The pricing for our subscription model gets updated every year:
- In 2016 our fee was at 2300 GBP (some 3400 USD at the exchange rate of 2016)
- In 2017 our fee was 2200 USD. Nearly half compared to the year before.
- In 2018 our fee, starting the 2nd of Feb, is 2500 EUR (some 3000 USD at the current exchange rate).
The new rate DOES NOT APPLY to our existing customers and their respective renewals until 2nd February 2019.
Why we update our fee every year?
Because our fees are determined by our cost, not the market pricing for GRC tools or the number of users or employees of the organisation interested in eramba. We charge the same to anyone, no matter if they are huge or small.
Since our margin is very small (we work at a cost), any variation on cost must be quickly adjusted on the fee, otherwise we loose money and the project dies.
Why don’t you charge more?
We get this question quite often – the simplest answer is because we dont need to and because Esteban, the guy who started all this, wants to keep the project for as long as he can as open and accessible to everyone as possible.
Why have you changed the currency so many times?
It has to do with the cost (which in 2016 was in sterling as we lived in the UK), brexit (which made exchange rates go nuts) and forced us to seek shelter in USD and now EUR as we are now mostly based in continental Europe where EUR is the base of our cost. We obviously are a lot better at GRC than macro-economics!
Should we expect more fee changes?
Is a fact we do this only once a year and all our customers gets one year notification.
Do you have discounts?
No, remember we already run this project for no profit.
