If you've used OPTIC before or your organization is related to an existing OPTIC customer, you may qualify for a discount. Also, people move in their careers, sometimes changing the organizations they work for: through that, they bring their OPTIC experience to the new workplaces, therefore the applicable discounts.
OPTIC API: The API allows creating/updating or exporting OPTIC records. Enabling the API is a one-time fee of $1,200. Customizations of the API come at an extra cost.
Data Bridges (FTP): Automate data movement from your applications or database environment, such as HR apps, to OPTIC – usually as data in CSV (Comma-Separated Values) format. The cost of developing such bridges may range from $1,200 to $4,500 function of complexity. There is no way to provide a precise evaluation of the cost, as all depends on the specific data structure, data volume and pre-processing that needs to be done, e.g. to correct date formats, remove invalid characters or padding spaces, classify/centralize/convert data, etc.
LMS / Training Bridges: Automate importing of training from LMS / online training platforms to OPTIC through API calls. We have worked with some of our customers to interface with Online Learning Enterprises and Yardstick / Rapid LMS. The infrastructure could be easily extended to support other platforms. In case your organization helps us with that integration, which could potentially be used by other customers as well, that feature would be then offered to you for free / at absolutely no cost. For the existing bridges, the cost is $0.20 per employee training imported into OPTIC.
Electronic Forms (Templates): The cost for converting paper forms (one-two pages) into electronic forms is $200 a piece or $700 for a group of four. Those forms are used mostly to create OPTIC inspection records.
New Features and Custom Development: We can develop new features targeted to your own specific requirements. The changes must not impact normal operation of other customers and they must be consistent with the application, overall. Our hourly rate for such developments is $150, all done based on an approved statement of work - providing an hourly estimate. Results are gradually visible and we interact closely with our customers to get their feedback as things move forward. Developments which would benefit other OPTIC customers are executed at 30% of the total cost.
Technical Support: Included automatically through the DEFAULT SOFTWARE. We are aiming to be very responsive to customer requests and suggestions, as well as to resolve any potential issues as quickly as possible.
For the DEFAULT SOFTWARE (Web application), without OPTIC API, data/LMS bridges or extra customizations, the cost is a function of the number of active employees (ae). That number reflects roughly the effort your subscription will put on our system and the database size.
Below are a few examples (monthly costs):
- 0 to 49 active employees: $250 ($5.10/ae)
- 50 to 99 active employees: $310 ($3.13/ae)
- 100 to 149 active employees: $420 ($2.82/ae)
- 150 to 199 active employees: $480 ($2.41/ae)
- 200 to 249 active employees: $540 ($2.17/ae)
- 500 to 549 active employees: $900 ($1.64/ae)
- 950 to 999 active employees: $1,440 ($1.44/ae)
- 1900 to 1999 active employees: $2,580 ($1.29/ae)
- 3000 to 3099 active employees: $3,900 ($1.26/ae)
- 5000 to 5099 active employees: $5,800 ($1.14/ae)
- 8000 to 8099 active employees: $8,900 ($1.10/ae)
There is also an initial setup fee (e.g. $750 for 0 to 49 ae, $775 for 50 to 99 ae, $800 for 100 to 149 ae and so on) which includes basic orientation and importing of a basic employee list from an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file. There is no long-term contract (30 days advance notice to stop using the Web app, with no penalties).
