Return on investment (ROI) is one of our most commonly asked questions. There are several economic benefits that our clients have communicated to us in different areas. Combined, these benefits are some of the many reasons why 90% of our 1,800+ clients renew our services and hundreds of new clients partner with us each year.

How much does eCivis cost?

Our cost is based on the number of users and types of services you select. We do not price based on population or revenue. Online training and dedicated support is included in that price.

Our contracts range from $5.2K to $280K. Our smallest contacts are for a small number of users (less than 3). Our largest contracts have hundreds of users across dozens of departments. Many of our enterprise clients manage 1,000+ projects each year.

Prices have increased each year due to the number of new products we release so contact us to get an accurate price.
