Who does this information apply to?
If you purchase inventory from Findly for assessments (formerly referred to as metered purchasing), this new model will apply to you for all purchases after 7/18/14. If you purchase annual licenses from Findly, this note does not apply to you. If you historically have purchased meter inventory, read on!
New Value-Based Purchasing has Arrived!
As a part of our promise to provide clients with a superior value for their assessments investments, Findly is rolling out a new multi-tier token pricing system for purchasing Maize Assessments inventory.
Historically, all of the assessments in our system have been equally priced in your accounts. This means a simple typing test has been priced at the same rate as a more complex and valuable simulation test. This new system will enable us to align the pricing of the tests with the value they deliver, and in a way that is much more competitive with comparable test offerings. The end result for you will be a better value for your investment across our entire library of assessments.
Beginning on 7/18/14, new purchases of assessment inventory will be token purchases, and each test within our library will require a different number of tokens to administer. Similar to our previous “meter” system, each administration of a test will debit from your token inventory, but unlike the meter system, tests will require 1-4 tokens to administer. Please reference our new library of commercially available titles to see the token value for each test.
What happens to my current metered testing inventory?
In order to make sure that we make this transition happen as smoothly as possible for you, we are asking that you use up your full existing inventory before making your next purchase. This will ensure that you are receiving the full value of your existing inventory prior to changing to the new pricing model. The next order you make after 7/18/14 will be made in the new pricing model.
What will happen to my pricing for future purchases?
Pricing for tokens is significantly lower than it was for meters. Discounted pricing is also being provided for volume purchases. Please contact your sales representative directly, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact a representative who will assist you in determining pricing.
What if I purchase assessment inventory online (eCommerce)?
Accounts with eCommerce enabled will be set to automatically revert to the token pricing system for all purchases after 7/18/14. Please ensure that you use all of your existing inventory prior to your first online purchase after this date.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
Please contact your sales representative directly, or email email@example.com contact a representative who will assist you.
