In principle we differentiate between alternative metrics on which we base our pricing on, based on your needs and business cases:
Signature verification pricing
- Seat based pricing: A seat is defined as a signing station (e.g. a PC) where either SIGNificant is installed or the signing station has access (e.g. via the network) to SIGNificant installed on a server. The seat can be used by any number of signers for any number of documents, subject to a reasonable use policy.
- Named user pricing: A named user is defined as a human being who is authorized to access SIGNificant in order to use services such as "e-signing" regardless of the number of signing devices (e.g. mobile-/smartphone, signature pad, iPad, etc.) used by the named user and regardless of whether these named user is actively using the software products at any given time.
- Document based pricing: All documents signed incur a per-document charge. Documents may be signed by any number of signers who may sign in any number of places (seats) on any number of devices.
- Annual licenses (= with a yearly time limitation / billing cycle) are for an on-premises installation or Cloud deployment based on pay-up-front annual payments and entitles you to receive all product updates and support at no extra charge. The number of licenses can be increased at any time and can also be reduced at the end of each billing cycle. Licenses purchased within the billing cycle are charged on a pro rata and pay-up-front basis until the end of the billing cycle.
: If you use our signature verification capabilities, we charge an additional fee for the number of enrolled signature profiles measured centrally on the server(s).
With SIGNificant you can choose the deployment method you prefer (SaaS or on-premises) without compromising on security or functionality. In the case of SaaS, we charge a monthly or annual fee, while in the case of on-premises you can also purchase the software licenses.
