How is Edlink priced?
Edlink offers a (primarily) usage-based pricing model. This pricing model consists of two pieces, a Monthly Platform Fee and a Per Authorized User Fee.
The details of our pricing plans are available here.
What is an authorized user?
An authorized user is a user that your customer (aka a school or district) has shared with you. This means the school has allowed you, through Edlink’s sharing rules, to access this user’s information and course rosters. The user is “authorized” to access your application via the Edlink API.
What does the monthly platform fee include?
The Monthly Platform Fee gives you access to all of Edlink’s functionality, features and services relevant to your product tier, as well as any new features or services which are developed over the lifetime of our working relationship that are applicable to your pricing tier. This includes the following:
- The ability to impersonate users for technical troubleshooting,
- the tools to “scope” access to your product through Edlink to a specific subset of users,
- out-of-the-box UI to onboard schools and districts (branded with your logo), and
- an out-of-the-box, simplified log-in screen (branded with your logo)
Will we be charged if a district “overshares” their data?
Edlink offers a tool called “Sharing Rules” that allows you to scope down the data the schools shares with you to only the subset of that data that you’d like you application is able to access. Sharing Rules can be set in Edlink’s Dashboard or programmatically through our API. So your “authorized users” is determined by the Sharing Rules you have in place, not what the district (over)shares.
What’s the agreement term Edlink offers?
Edlink offers one to three year agreements. Sometimes our “Scale" clients opt for a longer agreement in exchange for a lower Per Authorized User Fee.
How does the Development Grace Period work?
For clients who are on the Grow or Scale plan, we offer a 30 or 60 day (respectively) grace period, under contract, which allows them to access the full depth and breadth of our products and associated services. This gives Edlink the ability to offer consulting and advice freely, and means that our clients don't pay any upfront implementation fees. The grace period expires 30 or 60 days (depending on the plan) from the execution date of the agreement or when our client on-boards their first school using Edlink, whichever occurs first.
