Planit has changed the licensing and pricing structure for the T-Plan suite of software testing products.

T-Plan licenses can now be arranged on an annual subscription basis, according to company officials who said the change provides a greater flexibility and cost savings compared to traditional software package acquisitions.

Chris Carter, managing director of Planit, said the cost of software testing tools has been prohibitively expensive for years, often beyond the budget of many organizations and return on investment has proved difficult to justify.

The new subscription-based acquisition model for T-Plan now offers a cost effective solution which will contribute significantly towards quality deliverable whilst keeping expenditure at an affordable and appropriate level.

“Generally software acquisitions are treated as capital expenditure for budgeting purposes and fixed assets subject to annual depreciation charges for accounting. If the software is purchased this has an immediate impact on the acquirers’ cash flow and, if leased or otherwise financed, creates a balance sheet liability to match the purchase price.

“In either case this represents capital expenditure which is usually an early casualty of any squeeze on expenditure and or cash flow. It also tends to be subject to more scrutiny than revenue expenditure as it represents a single large outlay or commitment rather than merely part of the ongoing and essential cost of operations, ” Carter said.

“Under the new T-Plan approach of an annual rental these issues are overcome.”

Planit’s integrated solutions combine software testing best practices, market leading tools, a wide range of professional services, training and certification to provide: fully managed testing. Web/e-commerce testing, strategic outsourcing and development partnering.
