When we started GenMyModel 5 years ago, we had a vision. We wanted to make modeling tools accessible and easy to use for everyone. No more clunky setup, no more fiddling around with file versions.
On August 2012, we launched the public beta of the world’s first real-time collaborative web modeler. This first version only supported UML class diagrams. We kept working on the product, adding features, UML diagrams and improving user experience.
On December 2014, we released our first paid plans. Those plans allowed our users to get a certain number of private projects. At that time GenMyModel still only supported UML.
We introduced several new editors (BPMN2, JPA, Database, Flowchart, EMF and DMN). Some of those new editors got specific features, like process animation for BPMN2.
With all these changes, our old pricing designed solely for UML didn’t fit anymore. Users that use BPMN are different than the one that use UML. It didn’t seem fair to make every user pay for all our products if they only needed part of the platform.
Introducing Our New Pricing
Today, we are introducing a new pricing on GenMyModel. We worked hard to make the new plans as flexible as our platform.
The New Plans
We have created 3 new plans:
- Pro: For individuals
- Team: For teams, up to 4 users
- Enterprise: For enterprises
They are highly customizable, you pay only for the number of users and the options you need. When you subscribe you can choose one or several options:
- UML (Including JPA and EMF)
- Database (RDS)
For Team and Enterprise plans, you will also be able to select the number of users you wish to include in your plans. Each user will have it’s own personal GenMyModel account. All users on the same plan can collaborate and share projects among each others.
The new pricing will only apply to new subscriptions or subscription changes. If you are already subscribed, nothing will change for you. You’ll keep your current plan, with its price, limits and features until you choose to unsubscribe.
Changes to the Free plan
As we worked to redesign our plans, we also looked into improving our Free plan. The Free plan used to be quite limited. It only allowed for 20 objects to be created in any given model.
We changed that for a complexity based approach. Now only the main elements in your diagrams are taken into account. In UML for example, attributes and operations are now no longer counted towards the limit. This allows you to design models for real use-cases, letting you try our platform fully before committing.
If you reach the limit on one of your models, you will still be able to make modifications to it, but you won’t be able to add more elements. This way you can clone any model from our public repository and play with it, even on the Free plan.
