There are many areas to address in looking at the total cost of ownership of an ERP, ranging from the license for the software to the internal staff needed to support it.
Software. There are three ways that an ERP can be priced: monthly cloud/subscription, a revenue sharing model, and the traditional one time license acquisition. The revenue share model is great – if you’re the software vendor that profits from them. CircleHub is offered in both the subscription and license models, allwowing customers to choose the option that fits their needs most effectively.
Upgrades. Isn’t that what maintenance is for? Many of our existing clients came to us when they were faced with the monstrous fee for the “next upgrade” from their bloatware vendor. CircleHub has never had a “charged for” upgrade and never will.
Maintenance/Support. All database and application software have maintenance/support available, based on the license price. Our percentage is 20%, average for the industry, and includes 24x7x365 support. Many of our large competitors start with their “low-end maintenance” at a percentage higher than that, and ramp up to nearly 40% for “professional support”. Shouldn’t it all be professional?
IT staff. Our “Big ERP” competitors utilize one of the old-school SQL databases, and for a system of any reasonable size, require a DBA (database administrator) to keep it running properly. For mid-sized systems, the fully-loaded personnel cost for the DBA alone can be as much as the entire CircleHub system.
System users. This is the “stealth” item for most systems. Because of CircleHub’s ability to specifically fit each system to each customer, functions – and in many cases entire positions – can be eliminated or re-assigned through proper automation. It’s not uncommon for CircleHub customers to determine that their labor savings exceed the system price.
