We Don't Hide Our Pricing


Less Than 50% of Typical MES or LIMS Costs

Our (Awesome) Pricing Explained

At Chain Reaction Systems, we're committed to ensuring transparency and simplicity throughout the sales process. From your first contact with us, you'll be dealing with senior system architects who truly understand the world of manufacturing operations, and are experts on ToolTrack's capabilities and pricing. As we like to say, "We're Manufacturing People First". This eliminates the need for commission-hungry salespeople who don't really understand your pain points, which helps us keep our prices low.

We post our typical implementation and subscription fees right on the home page because we're very proud of our ability to offer such a comprehensive product for such a competitive price. Most MES & LIMS vendors don't post their pricing because they want to keep it ambiguous while the sales folks try to oversell you.

If ToolTrack isn't the right fit for your business, we'll tell you. We value your time and prioritize finding the best solution for your needs rather than trying to force a square peg into a round hole just to make a sale.

Once we've shown you an introductory demo of ToolTrack via web meeting, we'll provide a free account in our sandbox environment which is the same system that we use in the demo. You'll be able to check out the extensive functionality and reporting features for yourself, at your own pace, without annoying sales people distracting you. When you're ready to discuss the details of how ToolTrack could be implemented within your business, we'll be happy to provide a follow-up demo with a larger audience, or discuss customizations. The bottom line is that you'll know exactly what you're getting with ToolTrack before making any decisions.

There are 2 phases for every customer deployment: Implementation and Subscription. Before the Implementation phase we'll discuss what (if any) customizations & functional adjustments might be needed to better capture your manufacturing process flow. This is usually done over a few web meetings with stakeholders or an on-site visit, and the result of these discussions can have an impact on the Implementation cost. While this number can vary, our typical Implementation fee is about $30k (which includes a moderate amount of customization).

  • Once we know the scope of Implementation, we'll provide a comprehensive and easy-to-digest proposal that will cover the Implementation scope (with any customizations), pricing and deployment timeline. You'll know exactly what you'll be getting and the precise cost before we kick-off the deployment.

  • Once the proposal is approved, we'll ask for 50% of the Implementation fee to get started.

  • Only when the Implementation is complete and fully validated by the customer, the remaining 50% of the Implementation fee is paid.

  • At this point, you're live with ToolTrack and the Subscription begins, as well as post go-live support. We know the transition to a new MES/LIMS can be overwhelming, but rest assured we'll be available to assist whenever you need us, especially in those first few critical weeks.

  • The Subscription is month-to-month in order to reduce risk for the customer, but it can also be paid yearly with a modest discount. In general, the Subscription fee scales with the Implementation fee, so larger Implementations will see larger Subscription fees. The typical Subscription is $2,500 per month. This always includes unlimited user accounts, transactions etc. We want to make sure your deployment of ToolTrack helps your company succeed, so we don't charge extra as your company and usage of ToolTrack grows.
