RE: Samanage Help Desk Cost
Here is the real break down cost of Samanage Help Desk implementation:
Samanage Help Desk License cost:
Each license cost around $1,600 one time fee, Samanage Help Desk also offers an on demand (cloud based) solution.
Maintenance and support cost:
Maintenance cost is around 20% per year for the on premises solution. There is no cost for the Cloud/Web-based solution.
On premise solution usually requires a few hours server installation and if the software is also installed locally on every machine that you need to add a local installation time as well. Cloud/Web-based solution doesn’t require installation.
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.
