We often get asked why SportPAD runs a yearly licensing model, so we thought we'd give you a little insight into our thinking.
First of all we are a small organisation, growing, but still small. This actually adds to our ability to provide you with great support and personal service but we want SportPAD to continue growing. Built to help you, we can only do this with your continued feedback and support.
Taking yearly subscriptions allows us to plan for the future and more importantly plan a roadmap of enhancements. Continually improving SportPAD is our primary goal and we feel we have only scratched the surface on how we can enhance your sporting activities and participation levels. Every penny we currently make is put straight back into development and support!
A yearly contract also means we can support getting you started, which is when you most need guidance and help with new features and functionality. A number of tutorials and how-to videos on the latest update are currently being produced, and we will soon start to blog about some familiar scenarios that we see throughout the year.
On launch we trialled SportPAD Lite, in order to offer a low cost monthly plan, but many of you said you were confused over team, player, sport and feature limits. So, instead we decided to modulate certain aspects e.g. Score Centre, Payment Gateway and Booking System, in order to reduce the overall cost.
We know there are free alternatives on the market but strongly believe 'you get what you pay for' with SportPAD. Like regular updates, new features and great support. We are currently considering a 'Plan B' for those that need a low cost version that run limited leagues – more on that soon. Make sure you follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep updated.
Hopefully this explains our thinking and we like to think comparatively to the amount of time SportPAD saves you throughout the year, freeing you up for the social aspect of sporting activities.
