A quick note from the CEO

Our new, simplified pricing


This September we introduced a new set of pricing plans in Slidebean. We constantly evaluate if our pricing matches the real needs of our users, and this change responds precisely to that.

As our platform has evolved over the last couple years, so has our understanding of the needs of our customers. Over 100,000 people have tried the Slidebean experience and we now have almost 2,000 active companies on the platform.

 
We’ve learned that many of our customers are looking for more than just a presentation tool, but for assistance and guidance in the process of creating their decks.
 



Up until today, our plans Macchiato, Cappuccino and Mocha (see what we did there?) were priced and scaled based on both the team/company size AND the features included. Macchiato, our entry level plan, included one user license and a the basic set of features, while Mocha our most premium plan included 5 team members and a much more advanced set of functions.

What we learned is that feature requirements and team sizes don't always go hand in hand.

We found a lot of our customers subscribed Mocha in order to access its advanced functions, but they didn't necessarily plan to use all the 5 seats that it included. Likewise, larger teams that didn't need those features ended up paying for functions they didn't use.

Furthermore a fundamental part of any cloud-based tool is online collaboration. This is why we've decided to include two user licenses in all our plans, this means that all our users will now be able to collaborate with one co-worker. Additional team members can be added to any plan as a monthly add-on.

As with any major change, we've gone through a number of discussions and tests and now feel very confident that this new approach will make a lot more sense for our current customers, and the new users to come.

Slidebean Essential is now our standard entry-level plan, starting at $16/mo with a yearly subscription. It has access to all the self-service functionality in the tool and includes two user seats. This is a natural migration from our old Macchiato plan, which a lot of our customers found suiting for their needs.
Additional users can be added to a team account for just $10/mo.

We've packed all our design assistance features into Slidebean Premium. This plan includes a dedicated account manager, monthly design reviews, custom branding implemented by our team, priority support and 1 hour of design consulting with our design team.

Slidebean Premium will also include two seats, and additional collaborators can be added to a team for just $20/mo, with access to the same subset of features.

Finally, we've kept Slidebean Corporate as our Enterprise plan, similar to the former Slidebean Latte- features for this group are customized based on their company needs.

We are absolutely thrilled to have developed a tool that has helped thousands of people create better presentations and deliver their message more clearly. We hope this change makes Slidebean fit your needs more directly and removes any barriers you might have come across. 

Thanks so much for being with us,

FAQ

Can I keep my old plan?

We encourage all our users to choose one of the new plans based on their needs. Still, for the time being users on Espresso, Macchiato, Cappuccino and Mocha, can keep their old subscriptions.

 

CAN I ADD MORE USERS? 

Certainly, additional users are available at $10/mo for Slidebean Essential, and $20/mo for Slidebean Premium. 

How about an Academic plan?

We've renamed our Slidebean Espresso plan to Slidebean Academic. This plan will still be available for our academic users.  

 

Can I pay monthly instead of annually?

Absolutely! We offer a large discount for our annual customers, but monthly billing will still be available.
