There comes a time in every web apps life when it´s time to evaluate the business concept of the grand idea. For some companies this evaluation ends with a shut down of the service. But not for us. We have been fortunate, lucky and probably skilled enough to attract a growing user base. With so many people using Yast, we´ve been able to identify strengths, weaknesses and areas of future development.
From being 5 developers with a vision, we are now entering the world of marketing, distribution, partnering…you name it. It´s exiting, and will make both our company and service even better, but it requires a price increase for new Business/Premium users so we can satisfy distribution channels and partners. But If you don´t already have a Business account, keep reading. There´s a discount for all early adopting Yast Free users.
It´s also been our concept that people using Yast for professional use should pay and contribute to the development of the service, while those tracking time for personal daily routines would get it for free. Getting this right is about finding the mix of “what is free” and “what is paid” functionality. It turns out we have been pretty good at this, but one feature on the free plan seem to be used by several professionals. The pdf-report for print.
As a consequence, these changes will take effect from April 11th:
– A price increase for new Yast Business subscribers. If you are already a Yast Business subscriber by April 11th, your price is left untouched.
– All downloadable reports will be a part of the Yast Business plan.
We are web-app users ourselves and know it is bad news when you have to pay for something you used to get for free. But to maintain and keep developing a good service, it is crucial that freelancers/companies contribute by subscribing to a paid plan.
The good news
We would like to give you the opportunity to enter the Yast Business plan when the price is still low, and in addition offer a 30% discount on the current annual payment plan. That is more than 60% off the price after April 11th.
Buy an annual Yast Business licence now for only $49 / €33 per user by logging in and click upgrade. The discount is added in the last step of the purchase sequence.
Yast Business enables you to do advanced reporting from your Yast account. With tags for billable and non-billable hours and multiple users managed from one account, you will be even more productive with your Yast Business account.
We hope you are still with us, and thank you for your time!
