HBSMR WEB & API: Licensing

Because the development of HBSMR WEB/API is funded in part by the User Group's Development Reserve, and in part by Exegesis SDM, a licensing and maintenance model has been agreed that aims to deliver sustainable development, maintenance and technical support services for at least twenty years.

The table below shows how people will qualify for licensing and MATS for HBSMR WEB and API. The intention is to make adoption achievable for all, while rewarding past investment in desktop modules, and with logical breakdowns of modularity and service. The implication is that if a particular HER doesn’t don’t have a module already, the pricing to acquire it will be the same as the desktop equivalent. Of course an HER with the new WEB and API will get much more for the same investment, as they will in effect get both desktop and web-based modules.

In future, when HBSMR WEB develops significant editing capabilities, we will add a new cost-effective SaaS licensing model for non-staff volunteer users. These users will be able to work on monument/event/source records, without access to administrative functions, record validation, or casework functions.
