A cost and return on investment analysis of the pricing structure may help in this situation. The company hosting the server online platform we have built the program on charges a monthly subscription fee that make up over half of the $3 a day. So, we are really only charging about $45 a month (about $1.50 a day) for our program. That is less than most people spend on a cup of coffee every day!! We also have purchase options so that the monthly cost is only for the server hosting fee, just like you would pay a company to host your website on the internet. QUICKBOOKS online charges between $70 and $150 for their "tried and tested" program. They are generic. We are INDUSTRY SPECIFIC at about half the cost. Simply put, our software is just filling out all the typical forms used in the normal daily operations of a pilot car business, digitally, and leaving the calculations and math to the program for accuracy. We don't do the same function as QUICKBOOKS. We are not a full-blown accounting program. We did not want to reinvent the wheel. However, our program WILL integrate with QUICKBOOKS to provide a full accounting solution. Here is a quick look at our yearly savings from going green and using our product:
