This article delivers a comparison of AgreeDo basic or Premium accounts. It answers how to get the most out of AgreeDo by paying only a minimum fee – if any. It quickly answers the question of who should go with the free basic account, and who should get a Premium AgreeDo account.
Permanently free: AgreeDo Basic Account
Why does AgreeDo offer a permanent free account? Some people may ask if AgreeDo earns money at all? The answer is easy: besides the permanently free AgreeDo basic account, power users need to pay for advanced features (see below). So some users need to pay for the use of AgreeDo. But most users can go with a completely free AgreeDo, which stays free forever.
Not only the basic users benefit from this. Thus also AgreeDo Premium users collaborate easily with all persons in and outside of their organization comfortably and fast, without ordering any additional licenses. This avoids lengthy setup and licensing rounds and lets you get started immediately at no cost.
Currently, AgreeDo seems to be one of very few professional meeting minute solutions, which offer a permanently free account. We think this is a big advantage over many other solutions.
Comparison of AgreeDo Basic or Premium
AgreeDo Premium is meant for the “power users”. A comparison matrix shows you the difference between basic and premium accounts. From our point of view, the most important premium features are:
- unlimited meetings per month
- unlimited attendees
- unlimited attachments
- advanced search features
So AgreeDo Premium users can create as many meetings as they like. The important point here is creating, not participating. This means that attendees don’t need an AgreeDo Premium account. A basic AgreeDo user can get invited to an AgreeDo meeting, add items and comments, create or get assigned to tasks just like any AgreeDo Premium user. There is no limitation! AgreeDo lets the teams collaborate without additional cost.
So to answer the question: What account type do you need to buy?
Ask yourself, who in your organization creates and organizes most of your meetings. How many meetings does this person need to create per month? If this person probably will create more than 4 meetings per month, then upgrade this person to AgreeDo Premium. All others stay basic.
Who would normally need an AgreeDo Premium account?
Example: A project manager often creates and invites to status meetings. So the project manager needs an AgreeDo Premium subscription, whereas the project members are fine with the free basic license.
From our point of view, typical roles for AgreeDo Premium subscription in organizations include
- project managers
- team leaders
- team assistants
They normally create most of the meetings. Being a premium user they can add as many participants to their meetings as they like. Assistants to managers who organize meetings, write the meeting minutes, do the follow-up, also would probably need an AgreeDo Premium subscription.
Any other reasons to upgrade to AgreeDo Premium?
In case you need any of the other AgreeDo Premium features, of course should upgrade as well.
