      TRACtion - A Tool for the Entire Team

      TRACtion pricing is a function of several factors, the foremost of which is level of usage.

      We believe that ALL team members should be empowered to access and view project data, status updates, summaries, and project tools on an as-needed basis.

      To encourage deployments to involve all their team members in project management, we do not charge for licensed usage by team members (e.g., non-team leaders, process owners).

      We only charge annually for "Power Users" - our term for the group of your practitioners who will gain the most value from TRACtion.

      Power Users are the heaviest users of TRACtion's features (e.g., Team Leaders, Champions, and Financial Auditors). Pricing for Power Users will vary based on the volume of users subscribed to TRACtion.

      How Is TRACtion Priced?

      TRACtion is licensed per year and is based on the number of Power Users in your company. The fee is $500 (US) per Power User per year. There is an initial one-time setup fee of $5,000 (US), regardless of the number of licensed Power Users.

      Example

      calculator

      If you have 10 Team Leaders (Black or Green Belts) and 2 Champions, you would need to license TRACtion for 12 Power Users.

      But...if each Team Leader runs two projects per year, with an average of four team members on each project, that's another 80 Team Members in a year who need to have access to the software to update and manage projects. You actually have a total of 92 users (12 Power Users + 80 Team Members)!

      Remember, though, with TRACtion you only pay for the Power Users. All other Team Members get access to the software at no cost!

      Therefore, your annual fee would be $6000 (12 x $500), not the $46,000 (92 x $500) you would pay for other commercial project tracking software.

      All 92 Team Members gain access to TRACtion, resulting in a per person / per year cost of about $65, an annual savings of around $40,000 for what other packages cost.
