How is Bopup IM cost effective in comparisson with other commercial IM solutions?

Did you mind about the cost difference between on-premise Bopup IM and commercial cloud-based instant messaging solutions? Unlike one-time purchase fee scheme for Bopup software cloud-based IM solutions charge their customers regularly. Basically those charges are based on monthly or annually subscription and it is required to pay recurrently per user number basis.

In fact the use of cloud-based IM solutions is a rent of the software. Even a fee per each user looks as low as $2-3 per month a total sum paid by a customer annualy or during few years period can be expensive.

We prepared a simple chart that shows the cost difference in comparisson of Bopup IM software and cloud-based IM solutions for business. We took $2 US fee per user/month which is a lower cost provided by most of IM vendors on the market. The chart shows the difference for 25, 50 and 100 users because we have same bundles called Standard, Office and Enterprise packs.

The Cost Difference in comparrison with cloud-based IM solutions (annual basis)

The results can shock. Bopup IM is a cheaper up to 50% for the 1st year (purchase price) with a possibility of no mandatory charges for subsequent years. Yes, we give a lifetime license! Also there is a cheap fee for annual subscription to keep the software up-to-date that is not mandatory. Most of cloud-based (rent) solutions have no any discount for next years, there is same cost for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and future years.

In total, if we overview software cost for first 3 years, the results are the following:

25 users for 3 years: Save around $1,100
— Bopup IM costs $460 (Standard Pack) plus $125 for the Upgrade Service subscription per each subsequent year (non-mandatory). It costs $710 for 3 years (or only $460 with no upgrades);
— A cloud-based IM cost $600 for 1st and all next years. It is $50 per month for 25 users, or $1,800 for 3 years!

50 users for 3 years: Bopup IM is cheaper for more than $2,600
— Bopup IM costs $725 (Office Pack) plus $125 for the Upgrade Service subscription per each subsequent year (non-mandatory). It costs $975 for 3 years (or only $725 with no upgrades);
— A cloud-based IM cost $1,200 for 1st and all next years. It is $100 per each month for 50 users, or $3,600 for 3 years!

100 users for 3 years: Do not overpay $5,450
— Bopup IM costs $1,250 (Enterprise Pack) plus $250 for the Upgrade Service subscription per each subsequent year (non-mandatory). It costs $1,750 for 3 years (or only $1,250 with no upgrades);
— A cloud-based IM cost $2,400 for 1st and all next years. It is $200 per month for 100 users, or $7,200 for 3 years!

And this is only the cost difference! There are too many other differences and functional advantages including stand-alone and local messaging server.

Bopup Observer 6.0 — Major version of the LAN pager software

We are proud to inform that new version 6.0.0 of Bopup Observer client has been released. This is a major update of the messenger software that contains a huge number of improvements, changes and additions.

Bopup Observer is a LAN messenger for one-way urgent messaging and alerting purposes

What's new:

New application interface with changed icons, wizards and toolbars
This release of Bopup Observer now looks similar to recent versions of Bopup Messenger client. It has a updated user interface with modern-look icons and images on toolbars. New graphic is performed in monochrome colors.

Improved exporting messages to a text file
Now the messenger exports and saves messages and file transfers from the history dialog in same order as the data appears in the list. We noticed that previous versions of the app exported data in reverse order.

Fixed error on clicking long URLs in the message text
There was an error in the messenger software when a user clicks on long length links shown in incoming messages. The new release fixes such issues.

Fixed issue with autologon on program startup or after disconnect from IM server
Bopup Observer fixed another annoying issue with automatic logon to the communication server on startup or when an established connection with the server has been interrupted. Now the messenger tries to connect to the messaging server again and again using previously entered credentials within the next 1-2 mins as it should.

Many other improvements and changes
Many unused menu items were removed from popup menu shown in System tray area and there is no confirmation message on program exit. New version of the observer operates smoother and better.

Improvement of Bopup Communication Server

We released new version 5.2.7 of our IM server that added some useful updates and improvements.


Now it is possible to select and remove multiple messaging groups in the server console similar to selection of several user accounts.

Another improvement is about the export message archive to text files. We were reported by our customers that there was a reverse order of the messages and file transfers in a text file in comparison with displaying the same data in the Management Console. Now saving selected conversations and transfers occurs in same order as they are visible in the history views.

Another bugfix relates to SDK clients written on C/C++, C# and/or VB.NET languages. We found out that custom IM clients may hang up on establishing connection to the IM server if the server has a uploaded branding logo image. We fixed that issue so the clients built using the SDK should operate correctly now.
