Platform & Modules

Smarthub has a comprehensive, class leading set of features within the core enterprise platform.

Platform-and-Modules

Pricing for the core platform is base upon the number and type of assets or equipment you want to manage. The price does not change based upon users of the system or administrators.

There are a small number of key factors that we review with you on an initial discovery meeting in how you may want to implement and configure the system and once these are established we can give a very clear set of cost parameters.
