I would like to see rise vision offer bundle pricing with the apps and support. It could bring the cost down for the consumer but allow me to purchase more things for my clients to enjoy.

Hi Gene, 

I'm the Product Manager for our Store, thanks for the suggestion. Curious, are there specific products you'd like to see bundled together? And are there any other reasons you'd like to see products bundled together beyond price discounts. For example having once invoice and charge versus multiple, anything like that?

To keep my cost down firstly, but the single invoice would be helpful too.  I would also like to speak with someone on the phone to discuss a few things on how to set up an account with your company.  Can you have someone contact me please.

Thanks for the feedback Gene. Re. questions on setting up an account, easiest to just post them to the chat bubble in the bottom right when you are in the app. If you want to work through something on the phone with our Customer Success team you can purchase our Priority Support https://store.risevision.com/product/14/rise-priority-support

Hi Brian,

Yes very interested for the specific reason of price reduction.

We have many small business customers who have little to no monthly budget for digital advertising. We have managed to use RPi's for these customers to keep the cost down.

Most of these clients are billed 25-50 dollars per month. Above that price range we cannot get in the door with our services. This monthly cost includes paying for the hardware and content. 

Now we are paying 10 dollars per month for storage, then add paid for apps.
As you can see, if we offer the client apps - we are now looking at 1 or more extra years of contract to recoup our hardware investment, and our content creation.

For some customers, storage cost + app cost = we are losing money and there is no point to proceed with that client any longer.

Obviously a large contract client has no worry for us, but as mentioned we have many small business clients.

To work around this, we have implemented our own similar functionality to RV apps by using websites displayed in RV. By doing so we are able to achieve the same functionality for free.
It's a bit of work, but we get the same end result.

In some cases we can pay for an app (website code) and use it for every client.

Food for thought: We would rather pay $25-50 dollars per month for overall storage no matter how many sub companies. Possibly more profitable in long term business than $10 per company, as that has driven us to outside storage resources in order to remain profitable.

Just my 2 cents, but all accept $10 from you for it!  ;-)

I like & support this idea of a bundle invoiced at root Company level. 
I'm responsible for deploying a Signage solution in our Company with a worldwide coverage. The solution is going to be used for internal communication. Since considered as non-business critical, I'm on a cost pressure.
That is why I consider Rise that offers a lot of flexibility. The issue is that I will have to create many companies but still don't know yet precisely because it will depend on the roll-out dynamic. 
The issue I have with the pricing model of RiseVision is that it is based on per use (storage & widgets) which makes the prediction of the yearly budget very hard and not adapted with the way the internal invoicing is managed.

Like for Gene, I would prefer have a to manage my cost at the root company independently of the child companies. The price per gadget is not that high but multiply by the number of clients, it may grow very rapidly for a large structure.

The side effect of that is that I try to find workarounds, like J Juno, to get external applications to embed while such applications exists in Rise marketplace but the way it is invoiced is not suitable for me. For instance, I've adapted some JS code to get weather forecasts and countdown from an external source. And believe me, it is not really because it is free but more because my running costs are more predictable.
