Everyone’s inbox is different. Different roles, productivity styles and preferences require different tools and techniques. This is why we designed our new team plan to give each member of your team the freedom to optimize their own unique inbox workflow, while keeping your costs in check. Here is how it works:
Everyone has a Base Plan
Every team member is on the Base Plan. This provides the core functionality of FollowUpThen. It is simple, affordable and solves a universal need for productive teams: Following up.
Individuals can add Skills (Add-on Plans)
Skills (ex, response detection, sms and calendar integration) let team members add features to FollowUpThen to compliment their unique email workflows. Budgets to control (or prevent) spending. Your team account is only charged for the skills that are used.
A team member can purchase Skills up to the limit of their monthly budget. Budgets can be set per-team member on billing settings.
If a team member tries to active a skill that exceeds their budget, they are asked to contact their team administrator.
Your team account is only billed for activated skills. For example, if an employee has a $20 monthly budget, but she decides the Base Plan is enough, your team is only billed for the Base Plan.
Adding/Removing: Everything Is Pro-Rated
Adding a new team member or skill starts a subscription immediately, causing your team account to be billed for the monthly or annual subscription cost (depending on your billing interval).
When removing a team member or a skill, any unused portion of that subscription is credited to your team account. This occurs regardless of who is adding and removing a subscription. For example, if a team member tries a Skill for one day, then unsubscribes from it, most of the subscription cost for that Skill will be credited back to your team account. You would only be charge for that one day. The same would occur for a team administrator who adds a new team member, then deletes them the next day.
When adding new skills / users, account credits are used first, saving unnecessary charges, refunds and bank fees. The use of credits vs. new charges is transparent to the team member.
Breakdowns and Pricing Details
Skill Discovery Fosters a Productivity Mindset
FollowUpThen is simple and intuitive. Once someone starts recognizing its benefits, they may be inspired to seek out solutions to specific productivity problems. After searching for, discovering and investing in a solution, a team member is more likely to actually use it or, if they choose, uninstall it.
We feel this model is better than a one-size-fits-all, complicated product at a high price. Companies pay only for the features that are used, and team members are empowered to go on their own, individual quests to improve their inbox productivity.
