Today we're announcing a very dramatic change in pricing for our smaller ProjectForum licenses.
Effective immediately, the price for a single group Standard ProjectForum license, formerly $299, has been slashed over 90% to only $25. A single wiki, with the full ProjectForum feature set, including an unlimited number of users, for only $25.
We're also discontinuing the Basic license (which had a slightly reduced feature set, and sold for $99), because really, there's no point.
It's certainly not because we think the single group license is only worth $25, that's for sure. The reality is that most of our revenue comes from larger licenses, and many of those started out as single group licenses. As people used ProjectForum and better appreciated the value, they then upgraded to larger licenses to encompass new projects in their organization.
ProjectForum is already the easiest wiki software to get started with, but we know the price tag was scaring some people away at the start. We want people to really learn about and use ProjectForum, and if it makes sense, use it for new things in the future.
How does this affect existing users?
In the coming days, we'll be in touch with anyone who purchased a Basic or single group Standard license in the last couple of months, and offer them either a refund on the difference in price, or a free upgrade to a larger license. We'll also be in touch with current Basic license holders and offer them a free upgrade to a single group Standard license.
For users whose current single group licenses are expiring soon, the upgrade price will be $25. (This will also be the annual upgrade cost for new licenses).
Not really. And no, this isn't any sort of limited-time promotional price.
The one caveat is that this $25 single group Standard license is definitely intended as a "starter" license. Therefore, a limit of one single-group standard wiki license can be purchased for the same team, department or organization. Please contact us if you have any questions about this policy.
