Regmarks 4 The Web is referred to as "Software as a Service" (similar to the likes of Office365) where
instead of paying for an Office CD as a one off cost, you get the benefit of continuous updates and online services
for a set price per month. Rather than paying for your own web hosting and then
paying thousands of pounds for a custom product in what is a relatively niche industry
(i.e. not something we can recover costs by providing to hundreds of dealers), we charge on a
monthly basis and that monthly cost covers us backing up
your data daily, providing server resources to allow you to edit and update your data and carry out
the initial development and ongoing maintenance of the system. New features will be added
periodically and the majority of these features will be made available for free as part of your
existing licence fee. If a feature is considered a large feature which adds significant benefit for
a few dealers that may require it, or we have specific custom requests from a dealer, there will be
an additional cost involved but it will always be optional. We will never force you to take an additional feature
and you will always maintain the features that have been made available within the licence fee you pay.
RM4TW is going live on our 25th Anniversary - 30th January 2019, but provisional pricing is shown below.
Please note that until we run speed and load tests, we are unsure whether to base pricing
on "live" records (i.e. unsold) or total records (including sold records as these are also
searchable for pricing purposes - i.e. they do not get deleted after they are sold).
If you have an unusually large amount of sold records, and still want to keep them in the system,
we may need to work out custom pricing for you.

We will be producing a few introductory YouTube videos as soon as the system is live.
As mentioned above, we can provide a service of importing your existing data into the system as long as it meets certain criteria. Costs will be based on what is involved in getting your data extracted and imported and will be discussed on a case by case basis if you need this facility. If you are an existing Regmarks 2.7 User we would expect about 2 - 3 hours of time to carry out the importing process.
In comparison, having your own managed server (i.e. someone else applying regular security updates etc) with enough memory for database management to give you adequate response times, would cost at least £100 per month, and if you had your own software developed you would be looking at several thousand pounds of up front cost and ongoing maintenance costs to the developer. We simply charge a low price, on a monthly direct debit payment basis, and at a price
which is far less than putting one sales advert in one magazine for a single issue.
