Our Consumption-Based Licensing (CBL) offering allows us to provide UiPath licensing to customers in the way that we have always wanted to—tailored to their unique, specific needs. We invested in this partnership with UiPath because both organizations saw a need in the SMB and Mid-Commercial markets to address concerns about barriers to entry and cost predictability for variable runtime volumes.
CBL enables us to analyze your current needs, as well as any future plans, and provide you with the runtime you need to successfully run your automations and accomplish your organization’s goals. This saves our customers money and allows them to scale at their own pace.
While standard licensing is the right choice for some clients, for most, standard licensing provides far more bandwidth than they need and it sits unused. By being able to provide customers with fractional bots, burstable bots, and/or custom runtime bundles, the barrier to entry is lower and ROI is more attainable.
Neostella is able to offer a per-minute consumption-based model for our clients that:
The conversion to CBL licenses would be around the time of your current renewal/contract end date. However, we can determine the CBL package that’s right for you and even complete CBL paperwork at any time and then just use your current contract end date as the target date the conversion needs to be completed by.
In traditional RPA licensing, the only way to increase bandwidth of time or concurrency is to add additional unattended bots at $10,000.00 each. Under CBL, we are able to provide you precise, incremental runtime for your needs, bringing the cost to be more in proportion with that amount. That added runtime can be added quickly and at any time, so you can continue to grow at the rate that works for you.
No—your processes would not be immediately terminated if you surpass your allocated runtime. Either a per minute charge could apply to any overages beyond your contracted amount or an additional bundle of minutes can be added to your account—whatever is best for your utilization! However, we actively monitor our CBL clients’ utilization where necessary to ensure that we alert you if your runtime is approaching your allocated amount, giving us time to assess exactly how much more you need.
All your information is secure and can only be seen by the people in your team that you define as administrators.
The use of shared licensing does not make the permissions to access UiPath Cloud less secure, only the people in your team will be able to access your automations. Through the system of roles and groups we can even segregate the information that your team members can access and give different levels of access according to your needs.
All CBLs are supported by UiPath so there is no difference in terms of infrastructure.
We have the most frequently used UiPath licenses and products across the platform, if your team needs something additional we can evaluate the acquisition to meet your needs.
Any schedules, queues and/or time-sensitive triggers you currently have established will be carried over into the CBL environment. Additionally, there is no downtime during the conversion, so you won’t experience any interruption of your automations.
What type of support is available under CBL?
Neostella has team members dedicated to supporting the CBL program. As such, you will receive direct access to the people who can provide you assistance should you require any technical support. For more general, holistic support of your RPA program, Neostella also offers monthly support packages and time and materials support contracts, and up to 24/7 monitoring and support of your processes should you require it.
