Licensing Options

Home / Licensing Options

We've worked hard to define licensing that is straight forward, and makes the reports cost-effective for many different use scenarios.

  • Each of the reports has a base price, which allows for unlimited internal sharing within your company.
  • If you are working with Consultants, there is a +50% consultant access fee that extends your company licensing to the team members that are not employees.
  • If you are purchasing the report for your own individual use, and will not be sharing it with anyone or using it in any on-screen or presentation scenario, there is a 40% discount.
  • If your needs change, you can upgrade to a broader use license by simply paying the difference between your current license and the price of the broader license.

Consultant-purchased licensing is a bit different than the regular organization-wide license

  • A Consultant company license covers all of your employees, plus sharing the report with one client.  Your license fee is base price +50% consultant access fee.
  • When you're ready to use the report with a second client, the client will need to purchase a license covering their use.
  • Consultants can become affiliates, earning a referral fee for client purchases.  Client pricing is never impacted when purchased through an affiliate.  This provides a cost-effective way for you to recover your initial investment in the reports, and spread the love to more clients.

Terms of Use Overview

Some of our terms apply to all scenarios, these are practical things like you can't post the files on the internet for download by others, and you can't set up shop and resell my work like it is yours.  Other terms only apply to a certain license scenario.  For example, if you purchase the individual use license, you can't share it with anyone, even if they work in your company.

After you decide which option is for you, you'll review more detailed legal Terms and Conditions as part of the shopping check-out process.  The summary information here is shared to help you understand the licensing, you'll still need to read the actual terms and conditions when you purchase a report.
