Prices begin at £175 ($350) per year for 25 users, rising to £6,000 ($12,000) per year for an unlimited user license. Potential customers can sign up for a free 30-day trial for up to 100 users at

In a related announcement, Cogenz also announced reduced license fees for its hosted pricing model. The current pricing model starts at £95 ($180) per month for 50 users. Under the new pricing model, a flat rate of £1 ($2) per user per month will apply.
