When you buy traditional software you install it on your computer and in most cases you pay a small monthly/annual sum (normally a % of the initial purchase price) for technical support.
However, when you subscribe to WriteUpp you are subscribing to a service, commonly known as SaaS (Software as a Service). As part of the service you get access to a simple practice management system but we also store you data for you, back it up and provide you with access to your system via a whole host of devices by using a cloud-based computing model (which essentially means our servers do the hard work and your browser displays the results!)
Your monthly subscription contributes to the following recurrent costs:
- The ongoing development costs of the software
- Technical Support via telephone/email
- Server Processing Power
- Server Data Storage
- Data Backup
- Data Centre Security
- Data Centre Air Conditioning
- Server Power Consumption
Whilst we would like to offer our clients a one-off fee its simply not economically viable as a significant proportion of the costs of providing the service are on-going and not one-off, as you can see above.
