Pricing structure for small businesses

Idea created by mardale on Nov 30, 2012
    I run a 1-person cartography business and would like to see a price option somewhere between the $100 non-commercial Home license (which includes ALL extensions) and the $1500 basic ArcGIS (+ $2500 for the Spatial Anyalyst extension, for example). At this point, it's the extensions that put the package way over budget for my business.

    There are many ways to put a less-expensive package together. Examples: 
    - For qualifying businesses, consider including 3 extensions with the base price.
    - Or more similar to the Home use: For qualifying businesses, include all extensions at the base price of 1500.

    Without a doubt, ArcGIS is the industry standard. While most small business wouldn't make use of ArcGIS's breadth and power; with a more affordable price, small businesses could participate.
