The Birds, the Bees, and Product Pricing

Nov 10, 2022

What do the Birds, the bees, and pricing all have in common? People tend to run in the opposite direction when it comes time to talk about them. Unpleasant? Awkward? Perhaps. But very necessary and beneficial in most instances. Today we’re going to leave the birds and the bees alone, but let’s talk about product pricing.


You Get What You Pay For

A Tesla might seem expensive next to a Prius, but you get what you pay for, right? You didn’t buy QuickBooks for your accounting needs; you invested in a powerful ERP solution: Microsoft Dynamics GP. Kind of the same thing…work with me here. We like to think of Rockton’s Dynamics GP add-on products as the bright, shiny, chrome rims you use to accessorize your Dynamics GP – we don’t want to be the fuzzy dice hanging on the rearview mirror. If you need quality products that are simple to install, easy to work with, and come with unmatched technical support, look no further. 

Sometimes we are the cheapest solution on the market and sometimes we’re not, but we strive to be the best solution on the market EVERY. TIME. Our products are robust and have been thoroughly tested by our team and end users for decades. Not only will our products solve your specific business needs, but likely offer solutions to a few other problems you didn’t even know you had. We stand behind our products and follow through if any issues arise. Speaking of issues, our support team is top notch, averaging 9.8/10 on support case surveys. 

Quality, Integrity, and Support – you’ll get what you pay for. That’s also why you’ll see our pricing displayed proudly on our website and on other promotional materials for you to review. 

Subscription-Based Product Pricing 

In addition to our traditional pricing model, perpetual model licensing, we also offer monthly subscription options. Our valued customers can purchase our add-on products in a monthly SaaS model. You can pay per user, per month. Click here to see our most recent price guide.  

Our Product Pricing is Based on Full GP User Count 

All five of our Dynamics GP add-on products are based on the full system user count because our products are used by virtually every user in Dynamics GP. To be as fair as possible to companies big and small, while remaining true to our simpler & easier motto, this is the solution we arrived at. Keep in mind, with this full user count model, all your Limited and Self-Service users are totally FREE. Our hope is that our customers and partners consider the products we offer, how they benefit from making GP Work Simpler and Easier® and see the value of the solution for their users. 

As a refresher, here’s our user count policy for perpetual and subscription pricing: 

Rockton Software’s user count must match the GP Full User CAL (Concurrent User) count, which needs to include the 3 users in the initial or starter pack. The Limited users or licenses don’t affect the Rockton user count at all. When determining the number of Rockton Software product licenses needed for the total concurrent user count, one could verify the Dynamics GP user count on the GP registration key or the number of users on the configuration information page. If referencing user counts as listed in MS VOICE, the customer would only need to match the Full User Count listed plus the 3 in the initial or starter pack (which are currently not listed there in VOICE). 

That Wasn’t So Bad, Was It?
