Why Prices are Changing

Our goal is always to provide the industry’s best value while maintaining the high-quality standards our customers have come to expect from Ignition. We believe this new pricing change accomplishes this goal.

Get More Drivers for Less

We’re always looking to give our customers the most value; that’s a big reason we’ve chosen to include most of our drivers in the platform. Buying all the drivers listed above at their current price would cost $3,100; including all these drivers in the platform for $1,000 is a savings of over $2,000.

Upgrade Protection Covers Even More

This pricing change will also add value for our customers who have Upgrade Protection, which comes with our support plans and grants free upgrades to purchased Ignition modules throughout the policy’s life. With this pricing change, upgrades and additions to the Ignition Platform will also be covered by Upgrade Protection along with any module purchases. 

For any license not covered by Upgrade Protection, it will cost 65% of that license’s cost to upgrade new versions of the platform and modules, so now is a great time to get a support plan if you don’t already have one.

Ignition Keeps Getting Better

Over the years, we’ve packed more and more features into the platform with each new release, and our user base has grown all over the world. This price change will help us to continue to improve the platform, fully support our user community, and maintain our industry-leading quality standards.

We greatly appreciate your continued business and support through this time of growth. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding this price change, please do not hesitate to reach out. Our team is more than happy to discuss this change with you.
