We believe "self-hosted" web-based software should not be priced on a "per user" basis.
That's why all Jitbit's web-based products are priced "per product".
This is our mantra, our "mission statement" and what makes us different from the competition. This is what it's like today and this is how it stays forever.
For instance: no matter how many users and "service technicians" will work in the web-based helpdesk, the price is the same. Two technicians? Ten? A hundred? It's fine.
Let's admit it, the development costs are the same - no matter how many users work within the app.
Yes, this makes sense with a SaaS-solution (hosted helpdesk in our example) that is hosted on our server... We pay for traffic, we pay for cloud storage, we pay for RAM and CPU power we rent from a cloud provider.
Believe it or not, a question comes up every now and then - can I get away with not having a help desk app?
I've recently bumped into several conversations about outsourcing customer support, mostly among bootstrapped software founders who are (obviously) overwhelmed with work.
