We have several locations that want to use the softphone functionality, but in most cases it’s just a few extensions where it’s needed, 1-3. The 20 seat license at $199/year is expensive to them for a handful of people. Is there another option for licensing the module that I’m not seeing? As-is, most are opting to skip it rather than pay for 20 seats.
Its actually very cheap and the app works great. Its $16.55 per month or for 3 users $5.52 per user. Thats not very expensive at all and none of our clients have any issues paying it. We are talking $199 for 12 months.
Another option is upgrade your FreePBX to PBXact and get the license for free.
For 3 users you are out of luck, but for 1 or 2 users it is free…
The 2 user free is for the first year, then you have to renew at the $199 with FreePBX. I just did this for a client.
Then it’s $99.50 per year for two years, isn’t it
YMMV, but it’s by far the most expensive commercial module for FreePBX that we deploy and we do have clients balking at it.
I don’t want to get into an argument about some sort of universal definition of ‘affordable’ here, though. I was simply looking for something like a five-seat option.
We have single user licenses launching in portal very soon. It should show up in the next few days or so.
That’s excellent! Thanks for letting me know, Lorne.
Clearly Anywhere Allows per seat licensing without a minimum. We also allow multiple devices per seat, I am not sure if they ever got that working.
Off topic perhaps? Do you still agree that pushing a third party Commercial products would contravene the fora rules here ?
Not off topic, read the title, read it again, follow the conversation.
I am very good about staying on topic.
and the second bit?
If you are looking for attention perhaps start a new post. On the subject of inappropriate, it is inappropriate to hijack someone’s post. Last reply on this in this post
hehe, not that I care, but to me it looks like it is actually you ‘looking for attention’ and that for a third party commercial product that has traditionally been a ‘nogo’ here,
In the past you and your cohorts would not have accepted that , would you not agree ? . . . .
Going to respectfully disagree. OP asked specifically about one single product by name, in a forum category dedicated for that one product. I would say promotion of competing products is off topic.
Note that “FreePBX Softphones” is how the product appears in the Poral:
SangomaConnect- smaller seat license, when?

This has now been released on a per seat basis.
And for the math challenged… it is only worth it up to 3 users IMO. After that your cost per user per month is cheaper buying 20.
Note: Yes I have been vocal about getting this added. Not because I think it was a smart move, but because so many business people can’t do math. They go by gut feeling of “wasting” things.
I don’t understand your math. Why does cost/per user increase if the license is just bought per user ?!?
