Here is the real break down cost of eBid eXchange implementation:

eBid eXchange  License cost:
eBid eXchange pricing is largely based on the per user per month subscription model. The company offers two separate editions:

  • The standard plan cost $295 per bid event
  • The advanced plan cost $495 per bid event

Customization cost:
Customization cost is significantly more complex to calculate than licensing cost as it depends on functional requirements and specific needs. Here are few key items that effect customization cost:

  • Data elements you need to track and present with a dashboard/reports.
  • Dashboard, management and operational reports that are needed.
  • Workflows and how complex they are.
  • Forms to collect additional data.
  • User Interface changes.

Data migration cost:
Data migration cost derived from your current software, amount of data, complexity of data, availability of data migration tools and gaps between your current system and you new system. Migrating from excel spreadsheets can also cost a lot of time and money.

Training cost:
Training cost derived from the training approach that you select for your organization:

  • End-user training.
  • Group/Department training.
  • Video /self training.
  • Train the trainer approach.

Other implementation cost?
You are welcome to add additional cost to assist the IT community when trying to evaluate the real cost of eBid eXchange implementation.
