Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of RSA Archer is good. The price isn't too high considering it is a leading tool in the market."
  • "As I am a developer and responsible for providing production support, I do not have personal knowledge of the pricing. However, my colleagues claim that it is very expensive in comparison with other tools."
  • "It is not expensive. It is reasonable. We only pay for the licensing."
  • "I am not 100% familiar with that, especially with their new model. I just know that the way they've licensed per user to scale is good."
  • "The solution's price should be reduced. You only have to pay the license and there are no additional fees."
  • "At the higher end of the price scale, but provides better, more accessible functionality and customization than cheaper products."
  • "Fairly highly-priced, especially for smaller companies."
  • "RSA Archer's price is justifiable and not as expensive, compared to ServiceNow. I have heard that the licensing for ServiceNow is much more expensive. I'm unaware whether there are any additional costs after licensing fees."
