Bronze

$35,000 USD

$43,800 CAD

Fixed Fee Implementation
Bronze production manufacturing pricing is meant for smaller or simpler businesses that do not need full manufacturing orders. This level uses Assembly Orders for production.

This project is great to get off the ground quickly with an "out of the box" implementation of all the basic features, leaving anything more advanced for phase 2.
No significant customizations are supported in Bronze projects.  No ISV / 3rd party addons will be used.

Silver

$52,000 USD

$65,000 CAD

Fixed Fee Implementation
Silver is meant for a more traditional make-to-stock or make-to-order manufacturer with an extensive manufacturing capability who needs full manufacturing order capability.


This project still focuses on "out of the box" but leaves more room for advanced features and opens the door to somewhat complex customizations or 3rd party addons.
Limited customizations are supported in Silver projects. Selected ISV / 3rd party addons are included.  Programming fees and ISV addon licenses are always extra.

Gold

$67,000 USD

$84,000 CAD

Fixed Fee Implementation
Gold manufacturing pricing is for implementation projects with features required by the most complex production manufacturers (like Lot/Serial control) and leaves room for even more complex addons.

Gold projects are eligible to train almost all features of Business Central relevant to manufacturers as well as being eligible to complete complex integrations if required.
Customizations of almost any type are supported in Gold projects. Most ISV / 3rd party addons are available.  Programming fees and ISV addon licenses are always extra.

Frequently Asked  Questions

How do I know how many users I will need for my business?

We answer this question in a blog meant to help you determine how many users you will need. You can read it here.

How many Project Excellence users do I need to pay for during the implementation?

You have to pay for Project Excellence based on the number of FULL users you will go live with. This is the only way to fairly measure the size of your business and therefore the extra costs that will be associated with the project.  Project Excellence is meant to capture the price difference between a large customer with many users to be trained and a small customer with few.

How do I get a quote for Phase 2 activities (things I want to do after I go live)?

We have found that customers complete many "phase 2" activities on their own with just the continuing support from Sabre after the project ends.  Sometimes a small amount of extra support can be added for brief periods to facilitate continuous process improvement with your team. This is by far the best way to achieve phase 2 activities. Measure the return on investment of each extra task, and execute them so long as they make sense to do.

How much is ongoing support and what is included?

Sabre wants to help your business with ongoing continuous improvement in Business Central. We offer Business Excellence, our premium support program. The cost is $70 USD/$ 87.50 CAD and it is mandatory for the 12 months after your project ends.  Business Excellence entitles you to several benefits:
- Unlimited email and remote support incidents
- Unlimited coaching and consulting engagements (first come first serve)
- Use of our Business Excellence addon module with dozens of helpful features

How long are these projects?

Business Central make-to-stock and make-to-order implementation projects are made up of three phases.  Implementation, Go-Live, and Transition.  Implementation varies depending on the tier of your project. Bronze tends to be 5 months, Silver is 7 months and Gold is 9 months in length.  Go-Live is one month.  Transition is two months.  

The average Silver project is 7 months of implementation, followed by a go-live with 1 month of intense support and then 2 months of transition for a total of 10.

Customers who want to add more resources to a project and dedicate more hours can shorten that time significantly. There is a limit on how fast any ERP project can go - usually based on decision making, testing, and training hours available to your team.
