Recently we have received a lot of inquiries about our pricing policy after the release of the new version of TeamLab. This post is aimed at answering those questions and generally clarifying the situation.
TeamLab 7.0 is a virtual office that includes the following modules and instruments: “Documents” with online editors on board, “Projects”, “CRM”, “Community”, “People”, “Calendar” and “Mail”.
The office is going to be available in 2 packages:
1) TeamLab Office Edition – a commercial version of the product.
2) TeamLab Public Edition – an open source version.
TeamLab Office Edition will include all of the modules and instruments mentioned above and is going to be available in two deployment models: SaaS and Server Solution.
The price of the SaaS version of TeamLab Office Edition will depend on the number of portal’s active users. We are planning to offer the following pricing plans:
1-10 Users 12 USD/month
11-15 Users 25 USD/month
16-25 Users 50 USD/month
26-35 Users 75 USD/month
36-50 Users 125 USD/month
51-100 Users 250 USD/month
101-500 Users 500 USD/month
The free trial period will start from the day of Teamlab 7.0 stable release and will last for 30 days.
The Server Solution of TeamLab Office Edition will allow you to create your own TeamLab portal in a private cloud. The release of the server solution is expected to take place two month after the introduction of the stable SaaS version. The product is going to be distributed as an installation under a commercial license. The pricing policy will be announced later.
We are willing to provide non-profit organizations and educational institutions with indivudial plans for TeamLab Office Edition.
TeamLab Public Edition is a free opensource solution that includes all of the modules and tools of TeamLab 7.0 with the exception of online editors. The source code will be available for download on Sourceforge.com and Github.com. A step-by-step instruction on how to install it will be at your disposal on our website. TeamLab Public Edition will be licensed under the Affero GPL license.
What about TeamLab 6.5?
We will continue to support TeamLab 6.5 for 6 months after the release of the stable version of TeamLab 7.0 on old terms. After 6 months users will be offered to either switch to TeamLab SaaS Office Edition or install TeamLab Public Edition on their own server.
