Setup -
New store
R 1000 + travel Neg.
A new store with 2 working computers, Windows and no video software software, would typically take 2 days - In that time we'd make 2 visits of a few hours each. Its mostly staff training, but we often spend a lot of time consulting with the owner - good and bad practices, better ways to do things, specials and price structures.
Setup - Existing store Onsite

Last increase Subscription rates have not changed since inseption in 2004
Next price increase Mangobytes reserves the right to increase subscription rates by a maximum of 10% per year - however with an expanding user base, we have managed to maintain costs and also keep a very strong competative edge.
Why Increasing market share is more effective at this stage, current pricing supports it.
Mango Movies is our flag-ship product that will be developed further.
SMS special Mango Movies clients get SMS @ 30c subject to -
minimum purchase 1000 units. Prepaid or debit order.
ADSL Special   We've also just recently offered MangoNET ADSL subscriptions to our video store clients at better rates too. With everyone switching to ADSL and vendors offering more competative options it might be something to reconsider ... see MangoNET options.
Remote support Remote desktop / VNC / Team Viewer support is fast and effective.
Automated online offsite backup1GB
R49 pm
Up to 1GB of data is backed up to a server-farm in JHB. Software is controlled your side with encryption keys and password. Initial send is big, thereafter software only sends the difference. This can be used for any data, you decide what to store, and how often to update. Usually a folder of important documents and Mango Movies data twice a week. This type of backup is not suitable for bulky data like email.
