The subscription fee is based on the number of users (aligned with the customers’ license plan for Microsoft365). The support services packages are based on the level of support desired.

The fee consists of a base recurring subscription fee, optional enhanced support, a one-time implementation fee, optional advisory services, and optional content services.

What is involved in technical installation?

Velaku is installed directly in your existing Microsoft365 tenant.

How long does a typical install take?

Technical installation is very fast – about an hour.

While the technical installation itself takes no more than about an hour, the effort to prepare Velaku for launch to end users involves mainly content.  Therefore, a more common timeframe for most customers to launch is a few weeks. However, if the state of your existing content is relatively simple, Velaku can go live to users in a much faster timeframe.

Do you use Agile for implementation?

Yes, the launch and ongoing support services use an agile methodology.

Do you use Microsoft PnP?

Yes, we use PnP (Pattern & Practices), which is an initiative that include samples and guidance to transform full trust code solutions such as Velaku.
