New RealDropzone Pricing for 2014

Beginning 2014, RealDropzone pricing has changed. Any clients who signed contracts with us prior to this announcement will continue to get their retroactive pricing structure, or can chose to switch pricing models.  With this new price structure, we will provide your local Dropzone server.

RealSkydiving will be releasing a new product to the public in March of 2013.

RealSkydiving will be releasing a new product to the public in March of 2013. RealWaiver is the industry’s first paperless waiver of liability program solution, collecting electronic signatures from your customers to create legally binding liability waivers without the printing, managing, and storing of paper. This will be our first product that can be purchased “stand alone” (used with or without the RealDropzone suite). For RealDropzone users, this product will come at no additional licensing cost, although a onetime installation fee will apply, and will vary per installation. For dropzones who do not subscribe to RealDropzone, RealWaiver can be licensed separately.

Importing Jumprun! data directly into RealDropzone can help save your business time and money during implementation.

2011 has brought many new features to RealDropzone, among them are enhanced data import capabilities that make it easier to migrate from your existing manifest software solution into RealDropzone. We’ve used data import tools to move two different dropzones from the legacy JumpRun product to RealDropzone which has saved those businesses many hours of data entry and balance transferring. It has also allowed them to maintain contact information for prior customers so that post office and electronic mailings are as consolidated and streamlined as possible. If your business is currently running JumpRun and you’re looking for alternatives, email us today to talk about the fundamental differences between our product and the software solution that is keeping you in the 90s.

Act now to save big $money$

The pricing we published in Feb 2011 allows for installation costs to be credited towards future licensing.  Implementation costs can vary between $1,500 and $7,500 depending on the size of your operation and the number of days we spend on site.  Any dropzone that goes live with RealDropzone in 2011 will be credited 100% of your implementation costs.  Act now to save big on installation fees and lock yourself into our %0.35 fee structure for 5 years.  We must have a signed letter of commitement before 01/01/2012 to be eligable for this pricing structure.

Accepting Credit Cards with RealDropzone

RealDropzone has the ability to seamlessly accept Credit Cards on both your website and at your office. On your website, Credit Cards are entered directly into your website (Card Not Present). In the office they can either be typed in (Card Not Present), or swiped using a Credit Card Reader attached to your computer (Card Present).

Unlike other solutions that take hidden fees by forcing you to use their credit card processor, RealSkydiving does not make any of our income through these fees. In fact, the software product is specifically designed to minimize the financial impact of accepting credit cards at your business by encouraging Card-Present or Cash transactions whenever possible.

Because RealDropzone does not have ties with any one specific Credit Card Processor, you are able to freely chose and find competitive pricing. In fact, we encourage you to re-evaluate your credit card processor on an annual basis to continue to assure you are getting the lowest rates possible.

New Pricing Released at DZO Conference 2011
During our presentation at the DZO Conference luncheon we release a new pricing structure of only 0.35% the price of a student ticket. This means that if you are selling Tandem Skydives for $200, that you will incur only a $0.70 charge per student jump.
Additionally, we no longer charge a fee for experienced jumpers. The previous charge of $0.05 has been completely waived for both new and existing customers.
Also, while we don’t have any direct competition (no company offers such a full featured product), we can now deploy our product with certain functionality disabled.  This allows us to BEAT any price or product offering from our competition.
Introducing RealDropzone™

In order to provide the industry with all of capabilities that we’ve envisioned, we identified that the first step would be to provide a suite of software products that would assist a dropzone in getting all of the information required to run their business into a centralized location...
