Overcoming Technological Barriers with ioFramework

In the competitive world of software development, high input costs often stand as a formidable technological barrier. Developing solutions from scratch requires significant expertise and/or resource-intensive efforts. On the one hand there are the complex areas such as Autodesk Forge, AI, CAD, IAM, and on the other hand there are the demanding tasks that arise from the need to manage a multitude of small but resource-intensive tasks - for example in the area of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and payment gateways. All of these challenges result in significant costs and slow progress.

The ioFramework reduces upfront investment by up to 80%, offering an out-of-the-box solution that is fast, scalable, and cost-efficient. Clients can leverage savings elsewhere and, crucially, aren't bound to our services for life. With the option to buy the code and tailor it to their unique needs, ioFramework offers the best of both worlds: a solid foundation and the freedom to customize and expand. Embrace the future of software development with ioFramework!

1. ioFramework License Fee

With ioFramework, you gain access to a revolutionary approach. Your journey begins with a limited license from ioLabs AG. You are not allowed to share or modify the code, safeguarding its integrity. On the other hand the ioFramework license fee grants you access to a treasure trove of innovation. Key advantages include:

  • Seamless Updates: Embrace free access to framework updates for the duration of your contract, keeping your solutions cutting-edge.

  • Comprehensive Support: A generous 0.5 MD support per month will hel keep your worries to a minimum.

  • Security in Uncertainty: We've got your back. Should any unforeseen circumstances arise and ioLabs AG cannot meet its obligations, you receive the source code for the used ioFramework packages in an uncompressed format.

  • Pricing: The pricing structure is flexible, accommodating your needs: the monthly payments correlate with the number of modules used and annual payment options, which enable cost savings compared to monthly installments, are also available.

2. The Path to Ownership

With ioFramework, you are not locked into perpetual licensing. After just at least one year of intensive use, customers have the option of acquiring the intellectual property rights.

This opens up extensive customization options for our customers. However, keep in mind that ioLabs AG's support ends, and you'll need to procure updates and support separately based on current rates and ioLabs AG's workload. The choice is yours. Just get in touch with us to prepare offer tailored to your needs!
