Thrive is installed as an on-premise (behind your firewall) solution for some companies and a software as a service (SAAS – hosted site) for other companies. Whether we host Thrive for you in the cloud, or we install it on-premise, Thrive will be identical in its features, tools, and functionality. You pick the option that is best for your operations and pricing structure. Hosting pricing will be an monthly subscription which includes technical support and forever updates and upgrades. The on-premise installation is a one-time purchase with annual maintenance for technical support and forever updates and upgrades. Please see pricing table on our Homepage to see our Thrive pricing.
