Our philosophy is inspired by Gitlab’s buyer-based model and by Enterprise Ready
. This essentially states that features will be tiered according to the profile of the user that would require those features. Additionally, we would monetize features that would be required by people in roles such as: IT operations, management and executive teams, product managers and customer support agents.
Our product tiers will be categorised into the following:
The developer tier would be free and everything that an individual developer or small team of developers would require for their web application would be in this tier.
The starter plan would cater to formal startups in the early stages of their journey. It would have a minimal price point (under $50 / month).
The growth tier refers to startups that have found product market fit and where the business is scaling and growing.
The Ultimate plan would be for established businesses which have achieved significant scale and revenue.
While deciding which tier a feature should go into, we would essentially add it to the lowest tier where the majority of users in that tier would require it. If there is a feature that would be required by the majority of developers, we would add it to that tier.
However, if a feature is not required by early stage startups but by the majority of growth companies and “Ultimate” companies (enterprises), then we would add the feature in the Growth tier.
