5 WAYS IGNITE IS DIFFERENT, AND CLIENTS BENEFIT:
- NO COSTLY IMPLEMENTATIONS
IGNITE is an enterprise software product company. Our business is not reliant on costly implementation services. We have one robust platform that works for all users, supporting multiple commodities.
- SHARED FUNCTIONALITY
We have an open source mentality where clients are able to request and share new features, rather than each client being charged over and over for the same functionality. Chances are, if you have a need for new functionality, reports, or to automate workflows in a specific way – so do our other clients.
Our SaaS pricing model is affordable, scalable and well suited for start-ups and also companies looking to migrate away from older technologies. Subscription-based user pricing ensures you have the licenses you need, at a favorable price.
- ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
Our advanced technology stack enables more agile and efficient development, while our nimble and responsive environment allows our team to focus on the needs of our clients.
- CUSTOMER CARE
We are passionate about the success of our clients and recognize the importance they play in our own success story. There's no greater satisfaction than building lasting relationships and successful businesses together.
Our philosophy is to partner and closely align our development with our clients’ needs which gives us some advantages over older, larger, less-nimble software providers.
