Our Commercial Approach

Price f(x) is a true Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) solution provided to our customers on a subscription fee, or in other words “use related fee”, basis.

There are no perpetual nor any term licenses to be purchased, no long term commitments to be made and no entry nor exit clauses or penalties to be accepted when engaging with us. It is as simple as “pay as you use it and use it, as long as you are happy with it”.

Those are the cornerstones of our commercial model:

  • Subscription Model based on a one-time “Infrastructure Set-Up Fee” followed by monthly “Subscription Fees” per application module and month (please contact us for the service price list)
  • One Month Trial free of setup and subscription fees
  • No Minimum Term contracts and very flexible termination terms, i.e. one month per quarter end or two months per month end – your choice
