Licensing Options

Centralpoint Developer License 
When you already have your platform, but need to add functions to it. Centralpoint Developer License allows you to license the modules within Module Gallery to take your enterprise to a whole new level. This license would include: Global Login, SSO, Data Transformation, Web API, Forms, and Data Sources only. Many clients license this version simply to gain access to our developer tools enabling them to migrate and massage data between any disparate systems. This license would be recommended if you already have some digital strategy and incumbent platforms in place, but need to streamline information to or from those systems. 

Centralpoint Portal -Microsites - Limited

This license gives you full access to our module gallery and a Site Wizard with a specified number of microsites which you can create and manage (each with unique URLs, designs, and administrators). This license includes full access to our Module Gallery, and can be installed on premise or can be hosted anywhere you like.  

Centralpoint Master Enterprise -Microsites- Unlimited

Streamline your Digital Strategy with Centralpoint

Centralpoint can be implemented as a singular, harmonized digital experience platform. Most clients have already embarked on building this type of thing, but it is often nothing more than cobbled together disparate technologies. Although this might give long term job security to the cobblers or "developers", it does little for your bottom line. Centralpoint puts an end to cobbled together third party code snippets in favor of a centralized , harmonized and scale able approach. Centralpoint's out of the box cross forest SSO (single sign on) supports active directory, ldap, salesforce, twitter, facebook, microsoft and google which empowers you to reach each user uniquely from one platform; centralpoint.

An Intelligent Alternative to Sharepoint

Sharepoint depends on multiple instances of database(s) (plural) to organize your information. Centralpoint depends on one, better designed database. Centralpoint uses SQL (as Sharepoint does), but we do it more intelligently.  With Centralpoint, one record can truly be shared across multiple channels, and down to individual roles. This intelligent database design allows us to do more with less, rendering dynamic DITA documents or any webpage uniquely for each user.  Additionally, Sharepoint lacks the functions found in our module gallery, making Centrlapoint a more robust solution out of the box, eliminating time consuming and costly integration and development. Besides a better database design and architecture, Centralpoint offers greater functionality which you can see in our module gallery. Centralpoint is more flexible, easier to manage, bringing you more functions out of the box. Additionally, our evergreen update guarantees that your solution is always up to date. Oxcyon doesn't believe you should have to buy the same tool more than once (as you have found with Microsoft and Sharepoint over the years). Instead consider a technology which changes (bi-weekly) with the times. 

Centralpoint offers tools to help you migrate from sharepoint, extracting all files to easily import into Centralpoint, Additionally, Centralpoint is remotely updated, even if you have it installed on premise to guarantee it never become obsolete. Microsoft releases a new version of Sharepoint every few years, and expect their clients to re purchase the same software. With Centralpoint you only need buy it once, and enjoys updates every two weeks....representing an investment into your technology. The diagram below shows what additional costs and time are required to properly implement sharepoint. We encourage you to take a demo of Centralpoint and compare the the two offerings. One of the biggest comparisons is our licensing which is not per user, nor is it based upon your usage. We offer a Master Enterprise License which empower you to deploy as many portals as you need, for as many users, without penalty.

Centralpoint Web API

We understand that phasing out multiple systems is not that easy. For a variety of reasons, clients are sometimes stuck with certain application, or are under contract to keep it for many years. For these clients, we recommend leveraging the power of our Centralpoint Web API, empowering you to integrate and deploy anything you need, in whatever way you want. In this scenario, for advanced developers, Centralpoint is used as the primary content repository, and authentication source for your many users, but you are free to develop your ownfront end display in whatever way you want, including custom and secure methods.

Centralpoint Web API is designed for highly skilled developers allowing them to securely integrate any method themselves within an organized library. Centralpoint's API supports RESTful web services, and Token based security for your local team. Centralpoint API guarantees inter operability with any system you need to integrate with or from. Centralpoint Web API empowers your developers to leverage our entire out of the box Module Gallery including: Forms, Reporting, Business Intelligence, Workflow, Online Education, Email Broadcasting,
