Pricing

1. Who is a User?

Anyone who needs to create or share reports and dashboards in Analytics Plus is considered a user. As a user, you will need a license to log into the application to be able to create reports.

2. Who is a Concurrent Viewer? 

Concurrent viewers are those who only wish to view published dashboards and reports. 

3. How is the licensing model calculated?

Anyone who needs to create or share reports and dashboards in Analytics Plus is considered a user. As a user, you will need a license to logon to the application to be able to create reports.
The licensing model in Analytics Plus is based on:

  • Users - Those who need to create reports and dashboards. The base pack starts at 2 users.
  • Concurrent viewers - Each concurrent viewer license is equivalent to 1 concurrent user session that can be established to view published reports or dashboards. The base pack starts at 5 viewers. This is an optional component.

The final price is calculated based on the total number of users and concurrent viewers. For example, if you need a quote for 2 users and 5 viewers, it would cost you ($2395+$995) in an annual subscription. 

4. How is the concurrent licensing model calculated?

The number of concurrent viewers is based only on the total number of concurrent users accessing the published reports or dashboards. For instance, if you have 10 concurrent viewer licenses, a total of 10 users can view your published reports and dashboards, at the same time. Additional users will have to wait for one of the first 10 users to close their browser tab/window in order to view published reports. Once a user session is closed, it may take up to two minutes before the session can be re-used by a different user.
