Corporate Licensing and Fees

IHRDC’s competency management resources and services may be contracted using our Master Agreement, which covers our software, content licenses, and consulting services. While we use a license agreement to retain the copyright to the source materials, we offer our clients full use of the resources to meet their specific needs through annual or perpetual licenses.

CMS Online Software

Our industry-leading software is licensed by a wide range of clients with an expansive spectrum of users. We provide two licensing methods, both with an underlying license fee based on the number of users.

Annual License, Managed Service Solution (SaaS)

With our most popular option, we provide an annual license, updates, support, and hosting from our AWS servers—all for one annual fee.

Perpetual License, Client Hosted Solution

For those who prefer to host the application locally or on their infrastructure, we offer a perpetual license option with annual support and maintenance contracts.

Competency Library

IHRDC’s competency database is the broadest library available in the industry. Typically, we use a perpetual license for competency content, including our competency database and job profiles.

With this license, clients use the data in perpetuity within their organization, and it allows IHRDC to retain the underlying copyright to the source material. With this agreement, clients own any modifications to the base content. Competency Library fees are determined by the number of models or size of the database the client licenses.

Consulting Services

Our competency specialists have successfully managed projects in more than 30 countries worldwide, working in a range of settings and providing a variety of services. While many of the goals are similar, each project is unique.

For our engagements, we estimate the amount of time required from IHRDC staff and charges based on standard day rates. Our service fees increase with the amount of time required by our staff – although we do offer daily rate discounts for larger engagements. For those clients who are willing to take on more work, the IHRDC workload may be minimized.
