New pricing based on business turnover

Our last major pricing evolution took place almost 2.5 years ago, and since that time, Lokad has been making steady and constant progress in developing its business. As a result, our old pricing had simply become out of sync compared to what Lokad has become; and an extensive revision was long due.

Originally, Lokad only had a single app Salescast. Then, we introduced BigFiles - a file hosting service, followed by Sync - our data integration service and finally, we released Priceforge, a full-fledged data processing engine. As the number of apps served by Lokad gradually increased, we introduced new subscription plans for these apps; however, in the process, Lokad’s pricing became rather complex.

Moreover, in the last few months, we have been working hard to bring all of these apps together. Today, thanks to Sync, your business data is directly copied as flat files into BigFiles and then loaded by Salescast to generate inventory forecasting reports, and also commerce intelligence dashboards composed with Priceforge. While these interactions might seem quite complex, a single button click can now trigger a full refresh that brings together all these moving parts within Lokad.

Flat monthly fees based on turnover

Our new pricing follows a short list of guiding principles:

Impact for current clients

Current clients will be granted access to all Lokad features, no matter what they were already entitled to under their initial plan. No client will lose access to any particular feature because of the upgrade in our pricing terms.

Once a contract has been signed between Lokad and the client, Lokad will naturally keep honoring the terms of this contract. Clients can also request an amendment in their existing contract in order to reflect Lokad’s new pricing terms.

When no contract had been signed, as it is usually the case with the Express Plan, then, your company may or may not remain eligible for our Express Plan depending on its size.

Rest assured that Lokad will not cut off the service for any client before taking the time to engage in a discussion with someone from your company, which will take place over the coming months. Here, our primary goal will be to be fair with the expectations of our long time users.

As usual, our Lokad team is here to address your questions and concerns, don’t hesitate to drop us a mail at contact@lokad.com if you seek more details about our new pricing.
