FMYI Unveils New Pricing Options Making It More Affordable Than Most Competitive Offerings
Industry Leading Collaboration Software Delivers Even Better Value to Customers

PORTLAND, Ore., June 8, 2011 – FMYI [for my innovation], a leading provider of private social networks and collaboration software, today announced new, highly competitive pricing options to provide customers various features and price points. FMYI’s unique value proposition is the combination of social and workflow tools with ease of deployment, free support, sustainability – and now even better price options. Complete details about the new pricing are available at www.fmyi.com/pricing.

Since not all teams are created equal, FMYI developed its new prices to take into account a variety of team sizes as well as their different needs. With FMYI, every team gets its own private social network and collaboration platform. They can manage a variety of activities, such as file sharing, project management, customer relationship management (CRM), group calendaring, task management, resource library, intranet, workflow tools, and sustainability features. Each product level is designed to provide for a specific number of users and pages as well as space including:
•    FMYI Pro – unlimited users and pages with 50 GB of file storage – $149 monthly
•    FMYI Plus – 30 users and unlimited pages with 15 GB of file storage – $49 monthly
•    FMYI Lite – 15 users and 15 pages with 3 GB of file storage – $14 monthly

“With our new pricing we’re breaking through to the next level to make FMYI affordable for any team, of any size,” said Justin Yuen, President, FMYI, Inc. “

FMYI aims to provide a triple bottom line value, with a solution to help customers reduce their impact on the planet and now priced to minimally impact profits. FMYI is proud to be a certified B Corp, underscoring our commitment to being a social responsible enterprise.”

Competitively, FMYI’s new prices go the distance to offer the best all-in-one solution at the lowest price point. In fact, 37signals requires at least two purchases, Basecamp and Highrise, to be a comparable product to FMYI’s less expensive offering. Newly signed-up FMYI customers who formerly used Salesforce.com report Salesforce is far more complex and exponentially more expensive. As an alternative to Jive or Microsoft Sharepoint, FMYI is pennies to the dollar in both price and the extensive implementation required for those systems. Yammer doesn’t have the workflow tools and an I.T. executive who is now a FMYI customer, recently called it a spamming machine.
