Castle Pricing Structure Announced!
Free + Premium = Freemium
In an endeavor to create the maximum value for each of you and to show you our commitment to this software we are making Castle as free as possible and only charging for specific services/features. This new structure will mean that any inspector will be able to download Castle and potentially perform as many home inspections as they want at no cost per report or monthly fee! Excited? So are we!
We designed Castle to work completely offline and with minimal-to-no contact with our servers. This was designed so that Home Inspectors could perform their inspections with no data connection required. This also meant that as we looked over how we should charge for Castle, we realized we had developed something which could be used by the client at almost no cost to us (beyond initial registration)! As such, we felt it was our duty to add that value to you by offering Castle free.
Now, not everything is free. We maintain servers, a website, and need to pay ourselves! But we've isolated those costs into what we call Premium Features/Services. These are still being compiled and as such a specific list will not be given here. However, for general understanding, a premium feature/service will be one which has a specific time/financial/other cost to us as a company (i.e. cloud storage).
We hope you will be able to see as Castle continues to develop how this strategy will allow many new inspectors or those wary to try a new software grow their business more rapidly, and help those more established inspection companies pay only for those features which they use.
