For those of you who subscribe to AutoQuotes, we are proud of the trust you’ve placed in us. The AQ application has become one of the most productivity-increasing tools in the FES industry, with more than 900,000 products and accessories from more than 550 manufacturers in our online catalog. Staying true to the vision of AutoQuotes founder Kent Motes, we continue to be committed to our role as an innovative solutions provider to the industry. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously.
In the spirit of transparency, our investment in innovation and technology comes with a cost, and AutoQuotes has not implemented a subscriber price increase in three years. To help maintain our commitment to you and to a healthy and growing FES industry, effective June 1, 2018 we will charge $360 annually per AQ license for holders of five or more licenses. This represents a $45 annual increase from the current $315, or just $3.75 a month per license. There is no price increase for holders of four or fewer licenses; our list price remains at $700 annually.
The last price increase was in 2015. In addition to the well over 100,000 products we’ve added to the AQ Catalog since then, we've added many new products and features:
- Searching and quoting in a more visual and efficient way with AQ Catalog’s new card view
- Visualizing and analyzing your quoting activity and AQ projects by using AQ Analytics
- Viewing delivery dates and tracking shipments through AQ OrderStatus – the only comprehensive order tracking system in the FES industry
- Adopting features introduced in quarterly software updates, like dimensional search filtering, buying group identification, MAP/MRP availability and the currency converter
- Searching and filtering via the addition of Revit families and 3-D CAD drawings. There are now more than 160,000 CAD blocks and more than 40,000 Revit families available in the AQ Catalog.
As we move through 2018, we will continue to study the market, gather your input and plan strategically to introduce new products and features to benefit the FES industry. We’ll release more information on what’s ahead in the coming months.
Thank you for your continued partnership. We're proud to provide you the value of AutoQuotes for approximately $1.00 a day.
