Flux Workload Automation Follows 80/20 Rule by Offering Essential Features at Low Prices
Today, Dave Sims, Founder and CEO of Flux, a leading cross-platform workload automation and managed file transfer solution, released a statement regarding Flux's unusually transparent pricing structure.
"Flux continues to flourish. Our 2012 roadmap includes many improvements to our core essential features. On the other hand, our pricing is unusually low and transparent for enterprise class workload automation solutions. It's like Flux has 80% of the features of other enterprise class solutions — at 20% of the price," Sims stated.
Sold directly with a straightforward perpetual licensing structure, Flux pricing is an extension of the product, offering a minimal initial capital expenditure, low total cost of ownership (TCO), and a simple yet powerful automation solution. Software costs are more than just the purchase price. Renewals, maintenance, and training impact IT budgets. "Beyond the excellent entry price, Flux offers simple plans for renewals and phenomenal customer support and training," said Sims.
Flux simultaneously schedules and securely transfers files, runs and tracks workflows, optimizes resources, and alerts staff to potential issues and bottlenecks for fast resolution. The time-saving, script-free solutions appeal to IT staff. For developers, the feature-rich flexibility of this lightweight cross platform solution has been the basis for many new business applications over the last decade. Many of them are running in the financial sector.
"Over a trillion dollars and over 500 million checks a month are exchanged between the top financial institutions in the US, with Flux driving the backbone of these systems for over six years now. Flux has been rock-solid in this incredibly mission critical financial environment," Ron Schultz, Principal, The Last Check, LLC recently commented.
With this kind of proven track record and affordability, Flux is poised for continued growth. Flux transforms IT workload automation and managed file transfer by simplifying the management of complex business processes, but also makes it affordable for projects of any size.
"Our goal is to offer a robust solution that is affordable for large enterprise and small projects. Flux is priced at a fraction of the cost of our competitors. The fact that we offer a proven solution along with an exceptional price point appeals to IT departments. And executive management can see the value immediately," Sims summarized.
