Chamasoft pricing

Chamasoft Pricing packages

Our Chamasoft Lite package starts at Kes 100 per user per month while the Chamasoft Pro Package starts at  Kes 250 per user per month .  We also have custom packages for Government Agencies, Saccos and other entities who would be interested in a customized version of chamasoft

 

Ps: As at 29th November 2013, we revised our pricing structure . Prices now start at Kes 499 per month for a group of 5

30 Day Trial  period

The official trial period begins on 1st November 2013  and It will expire on 30th November, So the first payments will be due on 1st December 2013

You will need to complete the setup process including registering all additional members to the list and also selecting your package between Chamasoft lite and Chamasoft Pro

Lifetime Discount

As we have mentioned in our pricing page, we are extending a 20% lifetime discount to all grroups who sign up on or before 31st December 2013. This discount will be applied to all the future billings for the groups that register before this time.

You will have to complete your group  profile before you are eligible for this discount

Exactly how shall we charge your group?

If you indicate that your group has 30 people and you have registered 15, you would be charged for the 30 people, thus its important that you complete the membership registration, or revise the number of people in your group to 15.

In case you indicate that your membership, for instance is 10 and you have registered a total of 17 people, you will be billed for 17 people and the number of members in your group will automatically be adjusted by the system

Please make sure to review our FAQs and also let us know the other clarifications you would want

    Has Chamasoft been in the market long enough to start charging? I don’t know much about it and my group has not experienced its benefits yet. If I now tell them there are charges, I know no one will want to use it for now because they will not agree to pay for something they do not know works or doesn’t work.

      Dear Yvonne

      Thanks for the email and for your concerns, we are launching in the market on 25th October 2013 and we have had alot of requests to announce our pricing from a number of client so they can make a decision on which way to go.

      Have you signed up to see how chamasoft can help your team? We would love to help you and your group in case of any challenges

    It’s not clear whether your trial period will be available for groups that register later than 30th November.
    I think it’s important to offer a fully featured trial period for all chamas wanting to use your software.
    But I tend to agree with Yvonne that it’s better to offer some sort of free service before charging so that chamas can get familiar with what you are offering and also to give them the hunger for more
    One month trial period does not seem very feasible for chamas

      Ahoy Michael

      We will always provide chamas with a trial period for 30 days to test before purchasing. That means even if you sign up on 7th Jan 2014, you will still have a 30 day trial

      Is this clear now?

      How long would you suggest to have the trial period?

      Thanks again for staying in touch

      Dear Michael

      Thanks again. We have increased our trial period for 60 days to all new chamas and have a free version for upto 5 members. We are working to make sure the pricing structure is further adjusted downwards

    Based on how financial reporting is done in the chamas I’m in which is usually once a month, I’d say 3 – 6 months would be much better.

    Thanks again Michael for your comment

    I dont want to promise that will be possible but we will see what to do 🙂 So no promises on increasing the number of days yet

    Talk soon

    Is it possible to offer some services free of charge, example is have chamasoft very lite or something like that, which has only 3 services which someone can gauge and say it is crucial for them to go to the lite version. I have noitced that with some apps on tablets and ipads, you could even restrict the number of memebers on this particular one and any additional member then the lite version has to be used.

      Hi Vero, thank you for your comment we will take your comment into consideration, We cannot promise if this is possible try chamasoft and see the benefits outweigh the cost

      Chamasoft is now free for upto 5 members.Hope it now suits you. We also have extended trial periods of 60 days

    Hi
    Don’t you think it would be ethical to announce the end of the trial version period rather than send one an invoice on Nov 30th to pay yet I have not specifically said I want to continue using the product? This pricing model is way too cunning!

      Ahoy Sandra,

      Thanks for the comment, we are sorry that we never announced formally that the trial period was coming to an end , though its always shown at the top left in your panel when you login. On the pricing plan, we wanted to ensure that the costs are in line with the number of members but we have since changed our pricing plan , please review our new pricing plans on the pricing page: http://chamasoft.com/pages/view/pricing
