In our previous blog post, we discussed how all processes in Speech Central are designed to deliver high-quality solutions at affordable prices. Today, we’ll be diving into an aspect of our service that might not be immediately apparent but plays a crucial role in maintaining affordability: our licensing policy. Although our policy of licensing per platform may initially seem user-unfriendly, it is actually one of the key factors that allow us to offer an affordable app.
Licensing Policy Explained
As mentioned in the app store listings, Speech Central is licensed per platform. This means that the app is distributed through various app stores, such as the App Store for iOS and macOS, Google Play, and the Microsoft Store. By leveraging the licensing services provided by these companies, we’re able to keep our costs low and pass on the savings to our users.
App Store Licensing: Essentially Free
The licensing services offered by app stores are technically paid for by the fee that these companies take from user payments. However, since the fee is the same regardless of whether the service is used or not, it is essentially free for us. This enables us to maintain an affordable app without compromising on quality.
Alternative Licensing: An Expensive Proposition
If we were to support an alternative licensing system for Speech Central, we would need to make substantial ongoing investments in server infrastructure and software. These costs would be ongoing and could not be covered by a small one-time payment. As a result, we would need to convert the small one-time payment into a subscription to keep the business sustainable. In contrast to our current licensing policy, this approach would be less user-friendly and more expensive for our customers.
In conclusion, Speech Central’s per-platform licensing policy allows us to maintain an affordable app without sacrificing quality. By utilizing the licensing services offered by app stores, we can keep our costs low and ensure that our customers receive the best possible value. This approach aligns with our commitment to delivering high-quality, cost-effective solutions for all users across different platforms.
