Services

OpenBoxes is and will always be FREE to download and use. The software is therefore an attractive option for organizations with limited financial resources available to purchase licenses for proprietary software. At the same time, depending on existing resources and infrastructure, OpenBoxes may require some financial investment in human and information technology resources for a successful implementation. It is recommended that an organization evaluate the total cost of ownership (TCO) for any software under consideration, including the cost of hardware and personnel required for installation, implementation, maintenance, and custom development of the software.

Service requirements and pricing can be determined based on the specific needs of the implementing organization. Please contact us at if you'd like to discuss your requirements.

Should an organization choose to consider OpenBoxes as their supply chain management software, community members can be contracted to design implementation plans and manage the software roll-out. These services include, but are not limited to the following:

Supply Chain Services

  • Sourcing & Procurement
  • Demand Forecasting
  • Warehouse Design
  • Workflow & Process Mapping
  • Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
  • Business Analysis
  • Training (remote or in-person)

Implementation Services

  • Requirements & Cost Analysis
  • Server Hosting
  • Implementation
  • Technical Support
  • Installation & Upgrades
  • Performance Tuning
  • Data Cleaning & Migration

Additional Services

If you are looking to manage your own instance of OpenBoxes (i.e. Do It Yourself), but would like a little help with installation, implementation, customization, and/or support please review the pricing below and get in touch with us.
Service Description Cost
Installation One-time installation fee.
    $1000
Upgrades One-time upgrade fee.
  • $500
Configuration This costs involved in configuring the software as well as implementing your organization's workflows. This can usually be done in-house but may require external resources in cases where technical experise is not available. This should also include the cost of data backup / restoring processes and contingency plans if the software becomes unavailable due to power/Internet outages and hardware failures.
  • $100 per hour
  • $600 per day
  • $3000 per week
Training The cost to train employees to use the software, which may include training materials like documentation, tutorials, videos, etc. This will likely be an on-going cost as you'll have to train new employees and update training materials as the software evolves. On-premise training is also available.
  • $100 per hour
  • $600 per day
  • $3000 per week
Data Migration If your organization is using another software system (even if it's just Excel) to manage your supply chain data you'll probably want to move that data to OpenBoxes. In either case, you will need to export (e.g. download as CSV), transform (e.g. re-format the data to be imported), clean (e.g. remove duplicate and obsolete data) and most importantly test your data before you can start using the new system. This process can range from manual data-entry to automated data importing using APIs and other data migration tools.
  • $100 per hour
  • $600 per day
  • $3000 per week
Development Hopefully OpenBoxes does everything you need. But let's be honest, it probably doesn't. Therefore, you may want to hire a developer to build new features and/or fix bugs.
  • $150 per hour
  • $900 per day
  • $4000 per week
Integration At some point your organization may want to ingrate with an external system i.e. accounting software or an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Integration costs depend on how complicated it will be to communicate between the two systems. Today, most software utilize REST APIs to facilitate communication between systems while older systems use EDI (electronic data interchange). Integration costs should also include updates to standard operating procedures (SOPs) which may require re-training.
  • $150 per hour
  • $900 per day
  • $4000 per week
