Most manufacturing management software vendors charge big fees for what is essentially a software ‘toolkit’ that requires significant custom coding to make it work in your factory. Shouldn’t you expect more? We think so. That’s why our software comes with out-of-the-box functionality and code-free configuration tools. And it’s priced in a logical and transparent manner. So you’ll actually understand what you’re buying, and there won’t be any unpleasant surprises later.
With its built-in features and functionality, TrakSYS offers significantly lower deployment costs than with traditional software. And because TrakSYS is built as a unified platform adding new functionality is easy. All the code already resides inside the TrakSYS platform. Simply activate those features, configure, connect, and deploy.
What are your deployment options for TrakSYS? We give you choices: on-premises, (either at an individual factory or at your data center), or a secure cloud-based solution that we host. And you can purchase a license or a subscription. How to choose the best solution for your company? See the chart below for a few factors to consider.
To hear some people tell it, SaaS is the best thing since sliced bread. But it’s not the right fit for every situation. Ask yourself questions like: Does the software require a real-time connection to a data source? How long you plan to keep the software? Do you want to capitalize the cost or pay for it as a regular expense? Do you want to be responsible for IT and infrastructure? With your situation in mind, which option is right for your company: License or Saas? Use the example below as a guide to your decision.
The temptation by many managers is to purchase a license, but typically SaaS will be more cost-effective, as the chart above shows. And remember, even when you think you are purchasing software, you aren’t. As with SaaS, with a license you are really just purchasing the right to use the software.
