Starting today, we are raising price for JRebel license to $475 per developer seat per year. This is a 30% raise from the previous price of $365, which has been the price of our enterprise license since 2011. We are grandfathering all renewals in at the previous price until end of 2016, so if you are an existing customer and are renewing seats in the next 14 months, this will not affect you.
Why are we doing this?
There are three primary reasons: JRebel creates enormous value for our customers, it’s really expensive to build, maintain and market, and we don’t want to compromise on our goal to build truly amazing tools. Let me expand on that:
- ROI – the value that JRebel creates for our customers is truly impressive. Where other companies talk about 20-30% vaguely defined return of investment, we are talking about 10-20 times measurable return on dollars spent. This is just as true with the new price.
- Cost – over the years JRebel has grown into a complex system with over 100 plugins making sure that the experience we deliver even to the largest enterprise customers is just as amazing as in the smallest of startups. To support that transformation our R&D team has tripled just in the last 2 years, as did the overall company.
- Amazing tools – with that process JRebel has become much more expensive to develop, maintain and support on a per user basis. We don’t want to compromise on the quality of products or dedication of support that came to be associated with ZeroTurnaround over the years so the price had to give.
The $475 price point ensures that we can continue delivering amazing tools to developers and amazing value to their businesses.
What happens to existing customers?
We are grandfathering in all renewals until the end of 2016. This means that if you want to renew your seats, you can do that at the same list price of $365 through the end of the next year. If you want to lock in that price for the longer term, you can renew for up to a 3 year term, taking advantage of the lower price all the way through 2019.
Contact your sales rep or firstname.lastname@example.org for a discounted quote. You will also be sent a link to renew your licenses, with the discount applied, before your licenses expire.
