For you to have a fair chance to test and learn to appreciate The PlanMinder we will give you a 60 days trial license for 12 users when you register a database. This is counted from when you register the database, or from when you first used it.

If your team has no more than seven people, you can use the Free Tier Mode.

The PlanMinder is a self hosted service. Learn how to setup a server for your team. You can always start the Free Demo, without a database server or registration.

Fair Pricing Model

We want pricing to be fair, and for a project planning service we think that a fair price is based on the project team size. With The PlanMinder you do not need to pay a license fee to install the software. It is not until you run the scheduler that The PlanMinder checks for licenses. The scheduler is the part of The PlanMinder that calculates who does what when, and runs Monte Carlo simulations.

A user that is assigned tasks, is scheduled, and reports time is in The PlanMinder called a developer. When running the scheduler you need a license for each developer on the server.

A license key is tied to the database, but not tied to a specific developer or user. Developers may come and go and your team size may vary. You only pay for the number of developers currently on your team. We think that is fair.

For people that use The PlanMinder to read project reports, look at the planning or follow up costs you pay nothing extra. Only the number of developers count. If you decide to no longer use The PlanMinder as a planning tool, you can still use it to look at your old plans and reports. Without license costs. It is your data, so that seems fair.


Free Tier Mode

When your trial license ends, if you do not wish to pay for license keys you can enter Free Tier Mode. Free Tier Mode is available for up to seven developers, and lets you use The PlanMinder for free.

Monte Carlo simulations and associated uncertainty calculations are not available in the Free Tier Mode. Automatic scheduling, and all other functionality, is still available.

There is no special setup to start with the free version of The PlanMinder. Install and enjoy the 60 days free trial. When the trial license expires, just check the Use Free Tier box.

To get full functionality, just get sufficient license keys. As long as you do not have more than seven developers in The PlanMinder, you can always enter Free Tier Mode when your license keys expires.

Is Free Tier any good? Read this article. (TLDR: Yes it is. The disabled function is one most other software do not have even as an option.)

How to Get License Keys

When you register a database you will automatically get a trial license key for 12 developers. The registered contact person will get an e-mail with a license key file. The license key will also be stored on our server.

If you want to try The PlanMinder with more than 12 developers, contact theplanminder@auspicia.se.

On the Settings / License Keys tab you can see current licensing status, and any active or expired licence keys stored in your database. Click the “Download Keys” button to download new keys from The PlanMinders server. If the server for some reason is not available you can instead use “Load Key from File” to load keys from the file sent to you by e-mail.

To get new License Keys, click “Buy License Key”. This will open a web page in your standard browser where you can buy License Keys.

The web page can only be opened from inside The PlanMinder to make sure that correct information to issue a license key is supplied to the server.

How much will you save?

The information on this page is about what The PlanMinder costs. But the goal is to save money. How much? That of course depends on where you are starting from.

If you currently are managing project plans in a spreadsheet, the saved time on administration alone is well worth the license fee. If you are using another professional tool, you are still likely to find that the automatic scheduling in The PlanMinder will both save you time, and give you more information.

The big potential to save money is however in better project management. Having more and up to date information gives you the ability to make better decisions earlier. Stressed and overworked coworkers are more likely to make mistakes, are less efficient and has a greater risk to their health. According to the PMI report Pulse of the Profession 2020, an average of 11.4 % of investments is wasted due to poor project performance. And organizations that undervalue project management as a strategic competency for driving change report an average of 67 percent more of their projects failing outright. This is where the big money lies.

The report swedish-project-review-2020 shows a strong correlation between project success rate and the ability to manage and adapt to change. And between risk management maturity level and project success rate.

Let The PlanMinder help you get to the next level of organizational maturity.
