    FM15 Pricing comparison.

      It seems that people are having a lot of questions with regard to pricing and maybe this will help answer some peoples questions.

      For reference only. Check with FileMaker to confirm any pricing.

          Helpful (as ever).  These exercises are inherently difficult because of the different principles involved. 'Old' licensing is based on per unit cost within quantity ranges, eg if 10 copies, then $108 each (AVLA).

           

          Whereas, a connections/ user oriented approach just shows the break points and a total, rather than per unit comparison, eg 10 users/ connections is $142.80 per head.

           

          A key difference of course between the options is that via one plan you can get a precise licence count (7) whereas with another, you have to go in increments of 5.  (Thus, if you really only wanted 7 then the per head cost is higher.)

           

          Depending on where you are in the scale of copies wanted, the variations can be significant.

           

          Would it be useful to add a notional, per head column in the FTL estimates?  Or not?  Is there a logical reason not to assign a 'cost per head' figure?

            Feel free to create something like that if you would like.
