58% of respondents noted that proctoring is beyond their means. High cost is usually not an obstacle for large universities and corporations, but for small companies and educational institutions, price is often an issue. At Examus we noticed this back in 2015 when we came to the online proctoring market with our solution. This led us to the idea that a flexible line of tariffs is required for all categories of clients.
Now 4 tariff options are available for our customers:
1. SaaS solution - in this case, the client uses the Examus software, but only pays for a specific number of proctored exams. In this case, the customer does not need his own infrastructure - everything you need is already in the software. This method is suitable for organizations with small budgets.
2. Annual subscription - the solution is hosted on any cloud or server upon the customer’s request. Suitable for clients who conduct over 60,000 exams annually.
3. Exam Package - suitable if a client needs to conduct a large volume of exams one-time. For example, universities can purchase proctoring for one mid-year assessment test.
4. Per Student Per Year - suitable for universities that buy proctoring for the entire academic year. They pay on a per-student basis and receive a certain number of hours for each exam taker.
Another factor affecting pricing is the choice of hosting server. It is no secret that deploying a solution on a physical server is usually more expensive than in the cloud. That is why Examus provides customers with the opportunity to choose where to store information: on the Examus cloud platform, in the customer's virtual storage or on a physical server. To reduce costs and speed up system deployment, we recommend hosting in a cloud server.
