Pricing

Argus Connecting Care Pty Ltd is founded on the principle that Argus should be available to doctors and healthcare organisations at the lowest affordable cost. All revenue obtained from Argus licencing and services is ploughed back into the Argus product and the Argus operations.

The pricing policy has been developed according to a principle of equitable sharing of the costs of supporting the Argus product and the Argus user base. This principle has translated into an overarching pricing regime which attempts to reflect the size of the user organisation and hence the relative potential benefit that the organisation may derive from using Argus as its messaging facility. Additionally, this regime aims to reflect the relative capacity of the user organisation to shoulder responsibility for supporting the operations of the Argus support resources.
