So, SciChart v2.0 has finally been released! Along with this release we have introduced some pricing changes and new product tiers. The following article explains the tiers and pricing.
If you head over to www.scichart.com/buy-now you will see all the options available.
We estimate that we have spent 3-man years of effort on building and supporting SciChart to-date. About 50% of our time is spent supporting people on the forums and on email, so these editions represent incredible value! Just think, how much do you pay your developers by the hour? And what price can you put on support that helps you build your applications?
You can see full pricing details at www.scichart.com/buy-now/. For example, the pricing for SciChart WPF Professional is as follows:
We have prepared this helpful chart to show how the pricing for v2.x compares to v1.x! No prizes for spotting which charting package this diagram was generated in 🙂
Although the price per-license is higher for a single license, because of steeper discounts the prices quickly normalize.
Customers who buy in bulk are effectively paying no more for v2.* with 1-year support and updates than customers who paid for v1.* last year, and are getting vastly more features and reduced risk.
Yes, as a matter of fact there are! We have introduced bigger discounts for multi purchase licenses. The reason for this is to encourage more multi-purchases for teams.
We have also announced site-license and renewal pricing. Renewals are offered to customers about to end their 1-year support window and includes a steep discount on your first-year license fee, plus any multi-purchase discount for bulk licensing.
Renewal pricing is valid if you renew within 30 days after the end of your support. After this time renewals will be charged at the full price.
All of our editions now have publicised site-license pricing. A site-license covers you for unlimited developers at a single physical site
We are actively investing in improving SciChart, both in terms of features, speed, performance and also usability. Over the next year expect to see frequent releases (as we have done for the past 16 months) and our usual high-quality response to issues reported on the forums.
Finally, we really value your feedback, now we enter a period of incremental improvements on the huge API and feature changes that we’ve delivered over the past 5 months. If you have a specific feature request please let us know. We are currently prioritizing features and improvements which you have suggested for the next incremental iteration.
