New Plans in Modeler Services

We are very pleased to announce a new plan in our Modeler Services: Professional.
Aimed for our individual users who love to save their models in the cloud, who need special publishing options like SharePoint and Web, who need to work offline and who want to customize their documentation.
Start with our free Personal plan and upgrade to Professional as your modeling needs become more sophisticated.
Note: SharePoint and Web publishing is now a paid-for feature, available in all our Modeler Services plans. This also applies for Offline work and Customizing documentation logo.

New pricing in Modeler Services Workgroup plan

We have heard our community and we are redefining our Modeler Services pricing.
Available for teams of process professionals working with 2 to 25 users in organizations of any size. Additionally, billing has been changed: we have removed Editors and Contributors to help simplify the usage model. We now charge a single user license, and permissions are granted within the Models shared. (Modeler Services Enterprise remains unchanged with these updates).

New payment platform

Our self-service subscribers will now be directed to an entirely new subscriptions and payment gateway. It is modern, fresh and offers an improved buying journey.
Subscribers will now have the option to review and manage their billing information as well as download invoices.
Users can manage their billing information as well as decide whether to purchase a monthly or annual subscription.
Workgroup users are now enabled to add or remove users from their subscriptions anytime, and their invoices will be adjusted automatically to the changes made.

Revision History – Enterprise Only

In collaborative enterprise environments diagrams can be versioned, creating new Revisions. Revision can be created, navigated, published and restored by Process Editors, on the Web Application. When published, all the enabled employees will visualize on their My Process View of the Web Application the revision published. When restored, all the Process Editors will have the selected revision as the current working one on their Web Application Process Models view.

Improved installer

Improved Modeler Installer, with a fresh look and feel and new options to easily connect to your Modeler Services.
For Enterprise subscribers, a new step has been added to type the Service’s URL enabling direct connection to their subscription.

SharePoint Online, 2016 and 2013 now supported

Modeler Services subscribers can now publish their processes to SharePoint Online, 2016 and 2013.
We will no longer support publishing to SharePoint 2007.

Palette with all shapes by default
