Pricing & Buy
Community Remarks™ license starts at $995. Annual web hosting charges apply.
Community Remarks™ runs on our Rackspace servers to ensure support, backups, and upgrades can be administered. We are always improving our application in an effort to keep up with your feature requests as well as the latest trends in community engagement. As a result of our continued commitment to this product, we require your license and web hosting agreement be renewed annually.
Community Remarks™ is sold as is, we can not grant guarantees that it will continue to work as desired if you break the template files. Only experienced web programmers should attempt to customize the templates. However, we are invested in your success. Should you desire customization, troubleshooting, or advice on integration, please purchase the additional packages (see below).
Once the software is properly installed and you are up and running, you might desire technical support such as a one-on-one tutorial, or have a special request such as sending notifications to multiple email addresses, or need assistance in customizing your template files. We can help you with that. Receive up to 3 hours of technical support from a expert for $97. Need more? Additional 3 hour packages can be purchased as you need them.
Make your Community Remarks™ map unique through customization.
Perhaps you’d like to capture citizen names and email addresses on the comment entry form. Maybe you’d like to add RSS capabilities for comments in a particular category. Perhaps you don’t want to allow public comments to be added to a map category. Need more features? Custom icons? These items can be accomplished through custom programming. Cost depends on what you want to do but chances are you don’t want to do too much too soon. So we have priced our custom programming package to cover 8 hours of programming, which is plenty to accomplish at least two of the following items:
- Add GIS layers to the maps
- Collect or present neighborhood map data
- Add 3 new input fields on the comment input form
- Add a custom place mark (the thing you drag and drop on the map) from your design
- Design the “Email This Page” form
- Add RSS capabilities to map categories
- Disable voting
- Disable public commenting to a map category
- Add a land use overlay to your map
- Use custom tiles as your map
- Enable email notifications to be sent to more than one administrator
Custom Design & Branding
If you would like us to edit your template files to match an existing site, that’s great! We can customize the map home page and map pages to adhere to your site design or firm’s branding.
Have some good stuff in a GIS that you want to put on the map? We will export it from GIS and import it into the map so you don’t have to add community assets by hand.
Perhaps you’d like to use Community Remarks™ as an asset database. In this case, we might provide a combination of Data Support/Integration and Data Entry services. This is ideal for situations where you are conducting a TIF district or historic property inventory and want a user-friendly map to accompany your project. In the case of properties that are not in a GIS, we will enter them into the system by hand with this package.
