CRM TCO Comparison – Total Cost of Ownership Whitepaper

For example, there are still several companies offering license-based pricing models. Also, some companies offer both a subscription option in addition to a perpetual license option.
The following document provides a comparative price analysis of leading CRM providers. It takes into consideration several costs, including user license or subscription costs, as well as potential server licenses and other additional cost considerations such as mobile access to the CRM data and system. In some instances, maintenance of the system is an additional charge to consider as well.
Hardware costs, such as servers, security firewalls, and other associated costs such as human capital, which are needed to maintain these systems, have not been included in this cost analysis. This is due to the fact that several of the CRM solutions listed here are offered under a software-as-a-service (SaaS) or cloud-computing model, and hardware is not needed to run these systems. Instead, this paper will focus mainly on the fees associated with licensing and deploying the following CRM offerings. All price information is sourced from reputable web sites and referenced throughout the analysis.
