  • Vivantio's pricing model is an annual subscription based on total number of users, types of licenses and functionality activated in the Platform. A free trial is available for a test-drive, upon request.

    Vivantio offers both named and concurrent licenses, and all customers may select to purchase any combination of both. A named license is allocated to a particular agent and cannot be shared. Concurrent licenses sit in a shared pool. Each time an agent logs in, they temporarily use up one license and when they log out, the license is returned to the pool for someone else to use.

    Your customers and end users don’t need licenses to use your self-service web portal.

    • Pricing starts at $40 per user, per month at the Essentials level, suited for small and medium-size service desk operations looking to increase efficiency.
    • Licenses at the Pro level start at $60 per user, per month and are designed to unify service operations with powerful core service management features.
    • Feature-rich Vivantio ITSM licenses start at $90 USD and are built to scale and meet the complex business needs of larger, multi-site organizations.
