Client-facing services:

 

1 Client Intake Report   = 1 credit

1 Business Model Builder  = 1 credit

1 Business Plan Builder  = 1 credit

Mix & Match services to best  suit your clients' and your community's needs

Because the economic development needs of a community can vary greatly from month to month based on the economic climate or time of year; we offer our partners the flexibility to access the services that they need most, when they need them, without having to change plans or spending extra money.  Some months are full of meetings for new businesses  while others are a busy with existing businesses that need to refine their business model or update their business plan for expansion.  BPS Tools can help them all and they will each receive services customized for their situation on their computers.  You may also find that one client is working hard to launch or expand quickly and needs multiple services in a month, no problem; we can help the same business from concept to finished business plan.

Client-facing credit tiers:

Basic        =  4  credits / month

Standard   =  7  credits / month

Premier     = 12 credits / month

$15.00/credit  =  $60/month

$12.50/credit  =  $87/month

$10.00/credit  =  $120/month

Client-pay is always an option

Our service tiers are designed to balance the right amount of client-facing services with affordability for any community.  

If you happen to use more credits than your tier has allocated we will simply invoice you for the overage at the end of the month at the per-credit price for the tier you signed up for.  If you want to change tiers we can process that at any time and the new tier will take effect at the beginning of the next month.  

If you believe it is in the community's best interests to pay for our services so clients get better results in their business planning activities and are more likely to successfully launch their business, our system is set up to handle entrepreneurs from your community as our guests with no charge to them.  If however you want the benefits of our services but feel its best for entrepreneurs to have more 'skin in the game' early and would prefer that clients pay for access directly, no problem; simply refer clients to BPS Tools and we can charge them and send you the results of their work for your review.

Programs & Pricing

Services are offered on a tiered basis so organizations of different sizes and different priorities can customize the mix of services that best fits their needs and budget.

Client-facing services are allocated using a credit system where each service costs a set number of 'credits' which can be purchased in different amounts per month.  All credits in a given tier cost the same and can be exchanged for any client-facing service.  Internal services are available at the menu prices shown below.
