The imaging company web site was very professional. It had nice and consistent navigation. I was able to zoom in on the detail for an interesting image processing tools for developers. As always I quickly jumped to the pricing page. It was then that I realized why the company could advertise on high profile sites like Information Week. Check out the prices that were listed for their development editions of this product:
- $2500 Express Edition
- $5000 C++ SDK Version
- $5000 ActiveX SDK Version
- $7500 C++ SDK Version with Forms
- $7500 ActiveX SDK Version with Forms
There were some funny things on the imaging company’s web site. They offered free trial downloads of the product. And they also stated that there were no refunds if you bought the software. At an average of $5000 a pop, I can understand why they would want to keep all sales final.
