Costs & benefits of MetaRecords
MetaRecords offers MR office management systems and online services on a subscription basis. If you want to host your MR8 in-house, you can with MR8 Subscribe using your own server.
Or choose MR8 Cloud and eliminate the need for your own server, repository file storage. and back-up system, because your MR8 system and repository are hosted on Microsoft Azure Cloud Services.
With either option, you can add or cancel user licenses & plug-ins anytime on a monthly basis, so you only pay for what you need.
Use the MR8 decision tree to estimate costs
Decide what set-up will work best for you and find out what it costs with the MR8 System/Cost Estimator.
For example, if you have a big case that requires an online repository, you can add MR Web for the repository and more user licenses to cover the extra help you hire to handle managing the case. When the case is settled and you don't need the extra capacity, you can cancel both MR Web and the extra user licenses and not be stuck with extra capacity (and increased overhead) you don’t need.
