Exacq Raises VMS Software Pricing Twice in Less Than a Year

By: Sean Patton, Published on Feb 18, 2019

Most VMSes regularly release new features, but rarely increase their prices. For the 3rd time in 4 years, and 2nd time in 8 months, since being acquired by security mega-conglomerate JCI/Tyco, Exacq is raising their VMS pricing.

In this note, we examine the increase, include feedback from Exacq and the potential impact of the increase.
