The price of this solution could be made more affordable.
In my opinion, we have paid the right price for the product. I don't think that it is too much or too little.
The price is a little high, but I'm not the guy who is selling it to the customer — I only design the solution. Price-wise, somebody else's has to make a decision about it.
The pricing of the solution is reasonable. It's not too expensive. We've found it to be pretty fair and we haven't been surprised by any costs.
This solution is on the more expensive side but it's usual for niche products with a lot of compatibility and features, so the price is right.
In the licensing model, everything is included. You don't buy a separate license for Active Plus. Support is a separate line item. Support is a different cost, but whatever your support is now, that's what you're going to pay forever. If your support's $100 today, six years from now it's $100. It doesn't fluctuate unless you upgrade it, or change it, etc.
Our licensing is renewed annually.
We used a reseller for the purchase.
