Is SISTRIX really that expensive?

When we came up with the pricing model for the SISTRIX Toolbox it was always important to us that you get the best data for a fair price. 

Since SISTRIX started, over 13 years ago, we have added numerous functions, data and analyses, but we have always mapped them into the same module system. Through a survey, we found that this model does not reflect the real expectations of many users.

As a result, and after discussions with long-standing professional customers and partners, we have developed a tariff model that offers all customers greater benefits.

With the previous price model, you had access to the full scope of each feature by booking individual modules. For example, with the SEO module, all functions from this silo, but not including even the basic functions from the Optimizer module.

After the reform of our tariff models, SISTRIX services are available in different levels of feature access, but always across all modules, as has been established as a market standard. 

You can compare details on our new price and function page. If you have any questions, please contact our Support. We will gladly help you figure out what you really  need and how much the Toolbox will cost you.

And please always remember that a large benefit of our Toolbox is the time you can save for your routine evaluations. Consider what an hour of your time is worth and how many hours per month the Toolbox can save you, while helping you increase the quality of your evaluations? If you and your time are valuable, then the Toolbox will not be expensive.

We wish you all the best and hope you succeed with your projects!
