Hostedware® Private Label
What is Private Label?
Private label is a term that describes the ability to brand,
personalize and customize a third-party product or service
under your own organization's name. The underlying technology
may be developed and owned by another company, but you brand
and tailor the product using logos, and setting color schemes,
layouts, languages and other configurable options to make
the system look like it comes from you.
Hostedware offers two levels of private label or branding:
1) the surveys and tests you author and administer, and 2)
the software application and technology that allows you to
author, administer and host your surveys and tests. Everyone
who uses Hostedware can private label their surveys and tests;
customers who offer research testing and assessment services
as part of their core business often also want to private
label the whole application.
The Basic ASP online applications allow you to private label
your survey, tests and assessments, and is the simplest (and
sometimes least expensive, entry level) way to use Hostedware.
If you need multiple end-user (author/admin) accounts, or
if you want to private label not only your surveys and tests,
but the actual software tool used to author and administer
them, or if your transaction volume is relatively high, then
the Private Label ASP plan is a good choice for you.
Note that both editions are full-featured. The private label
(multiple account) editions give you additional account management
functions, such as the ability to create shared question and
ASP (Online) Edition
The Basic ASP Edition is available online, with no setup
or configuration. Simply open an account and start creating
surveys and tests. This is an excellent option for the majority
of customers, and a good starting point even for those who
are considering private label and license options. Pricing
is based on usage, which is measured in terms of responses,
or completed surveys or tests - and range in price from $1.00
each to $0.20 each (for higher volumes, preferred account
status and academic universities).
Private Label Editions (Managed, Licensed or OEM)
The Private Label edition can be hosted and managed by us
(ASP model), or licensed and hosted internally on your own
servers (in-house model). The Private Label ASP plan is priced
based on two factors: the number of available "accounts"
(test authors and administrators) and the number of available
"responses"" (completed tests). With the private
label ASP plan, we do everything for you (hosting, maintenance,
upgrades, configuration, backups, technical support to authors,
administration, etc.). Since we are managing the application
services, our charges are tied closely to expected usage (end-user/author
accounts plus anticipated responses).
