Why ContraxSuite Pricing is Different

Pricing that makes sense.

Most vendors who provide document and contract analytics software offer the same pricing model.  You sign up for their cloud-based subscription, which includes some minimum setup or annual expense.  When you an upload your first document, they charge you a per-document fee, and the story continues like that.  Uploading 100,000 documents?  Pay the fee times 100,000.  Ouch.

Isn’t software supposed to reduce costs?

ContraxSuite is offered and priced like software should be.  You can make a fixed investment in setting up and licensing the software.  Once this is done, the marginal cost per document decreases rapidly.  While there will always be some cost to storing and computing, these costs are de minimis in the modern era.  For example, an average scanned PDF agreement costs less than a dime to store per year, and you could store approximately one million Word documents for $12 per year.
