Sisense is a very adaptable software that has the power to meet your needs, but it can't provide everyone with flat rates for its services. Some companies have more demanding requirements than others so Sisenses' flexibility makes this difficult.
Variable rates are an effective way for Sisense to help their customers save money, as they only charge what's needed. If the company offered one high flat-rate pricing option that applied across all features regardless of how much a business used it, many businesses would be unable to afford using Sisense. By implementing variable prices, customer budgets can dictate exactly which functions get added based on personalized needs.
Sisense is making analytics accessible to everyone with their pricing model. By keeping prices variable, they are opening up the tool for more businesses who want access and insights based on data-driven decisions.
In general larger companies can afford paying extra fees when it comes time for implementation, as well as tech support after purchase, while smaller firms can't afford this expense. Variable rates make sure every customer has an equal chance of success in using Sisense’s powerful suite of tools.
The price of a specific Sisense implementation varies, but there are a few factors that Sisense uses to establish a price.
The price of Sisense depends on the planned use case and implementation size. For smaller businesses, prices will likely be lower than larger companies because they need less support in order to successfully implement their project.
Those who are using it for more complex jobs might end up paying higher costs due not only to additional features but also potential upgrades down the line if things get complicated over time, which could drive those initial expenses even higher.
Sisense's flat rate for services might not be enough to cover the costs associated with implementing a large, complex project like this. The business will need help from Sisense in order to make sure everything goes smoothly and without interruption which means they should work closely as partners on all levels. Negotiating on price is just one way in which companies can ensure their goals are aligned.
Smaller companies don't need as much help with implementation. Since Sisense doesn't need to cover costs for these smaller accounts, they can charge a smaller fee than they would have to otherwise. In a flat-rate model, those costs are baked into the monthly fee, whether or not a business actually makes use of them.
Sisense charges per-seat. This means that they charge businesses for each separate set of login credentials, which accommodates companies with smaller needs, or who only need a few sets at first. If they end up wanting more in the future as their business grows and expands, they can easily pay for more seats later.
When a business needs data insight, they can pay additional fees to bring Sisense into more people and teams in their organization. Large businesses need to bring their business intelligence solution to their entire company, and can pay for additional seats as they need them. This helps ensure that businesses only pay for what is necessary based on the situation at hand. If one team finds themselves with too many seats after purchase but not enough users, they can stop paying for the credentials they don't need.
Per-seat pricing means that businesses can get the access they need without having to pay for anything beyond what their employees really use. Most people don't require Sisense's full feature suite; some may only want basic analytical or dashboard building capabilities, while others won’t even utilize this type of functionality at all. They just need to be able to see the analytics and visualizations done by others. Variable pricing means that businesses can pay different rates for each employee; they don't need to purchase the full Sisense experience for each employee. At many organizations, only a few senior employees have access to Sisense's full feature set, while other workers have less powerful, less expensive accounts.
Sisense will charge an additional fee for data storage and increased refresh speeds. The more content a business plans on storing with Sisense, the higher the final price tag will be. It can be easy to think that businesses with business intelligence have infinite storage space. They still need to put data on a computer or in another place. Businesses had to store all of their data on internal servers before cloud-based solutions existed, and the same thing happens with cloud-based solutions - they also need storage space. That is not unlimited, and if you use too much of it, you will have to pay more than someone who needs less storage space.
Sisense's pricing model is designed to meet the financial needs of large businesses while still providing cost effective solutions for smaller companies. Smaller organizations with few records will not have as much data stored and do not require such extensive storage technologies, so Sisenses does not charge them as much as larger businesses. This helps keep their rates low across-the board without any discrimination based on size.
