Open Access

A new way to access to compubase data


There are now three compuBase pricing models

Open Access

Open Access - The key principles

  • Your company has access to up to 120 000 partner profiles
  • You define the volume of monthly credits (right of usage)  that you may use to view, analyze, enrich and export data
  • Your team can use the credits for their operations. You control the usage by BU / user / period. Unused monthly credits are carried over to the following month
 

What is a credit?

  • A credit is an unit of account which allows you to access to advanced information or to export data through compubase-online web application
  • The number of credits required by action depends on the type of action or the information fields used in your  selections and the depth of data you want to export.

Open Access: A pay-per-use system

  • A fixed monthly fee that includes a volume of new credits.
  • You use the cumulated credits for your operations
–Each information field or operation is worth a certain number of credits that are deducted from your account
–Any action that uses credits requires formal approval by an pre-authorized user.
  • One year subscription minimum
  • The cost of credit units is degressive depending on the total volume of credits used over the previous 12 months.

                           
    >>> The more you use the less it costs



 

You control your monthly budget

  • Only approved users are able to authorize actions that generate an additional cost to the subscription
  • There is an approval process that gives you the cost of a desired action
  • You can allocate costs to a designated BU/Dpt
  • You can allocate costs to a specific PO
 

Q&A

 
Do I know the number of credits used or the  associated cost of an operation before doing it? Yes you know the volume of credits and you can simulate costs of an operation for budgeting.
Is there is a limit to the number of credits I can use in a month? No, there is no limit. You can use all the credits you, your service or your company is entitled to use.
Is there a fixed price per credit? Yes you know the cost of a credit at the start of your contract. The unit credit price decreases depending on your commitment to an annual volume.
Do all actions cost the same number of credits? No, specific actions can cost from 1 to 8 credits. i.e. a simple selection and export costs 1 credit per export, but using BI tools and exporting advanced information such financial data may cost up to 8 credits per record.
Is it possible to get usage reports? Per user, per BU, or per country? Yes.
At the end of the yearly period if I have not used all my credits is it possible to transfer them to the following year? Yes, under the same contract, you can transfer any unused credits for up to 10% of the annual contract.
What does the subscription cover? The subscription covers licences, training, access to statistical tools, support, helpdesk and monthly reports.
How I can get a lower price per credit unit? With  a centralized European contract. The more credits you use, the  lower the cost per credit unit.
Can I have full access to all features without using the credit system? Yes, we have other subscription offers for specific, fixed targets
Is it possible to buy additional credits during the year? Yes you can upgrade your subscription or buy additional credits at any time throughout the year
Is it possible to use all the credits for upcoming months in advance? Yes but this is limited to months that are already paid, if you choose to make quarterly payments  you will be to use all the credit left for a quarter. You can also purchase additional credits whenever you want.
