Go Forward Overview

Go Forward is a simple subscription that allows your company's employees to get a written Solution Statement and leverage action toward the opportunities and ideas that happen in every business. Sure you can call Go Forward a software help desk or tech support, but it's also so much more. Business action requires answers to these common questions:
1) "How much will this idea cost?"
2) "How long will this idea take to do?"
3) "How much does Pronto think this idea will save us?"

How much does the subscription cost?

The Go Forward plan is a monthly subscription which costs $495.00USD, 400,00€, $545.00 CAD per month. This entitles your firm to unlimited Solution Statement(s) per month where you decide to engage Pronto Professional Services and three (3) Solution Statements per month which you DIY or table. Additional DIY or tabled Solution Statements are available at a 75% discount. Keep in mind that any Solution Statement where you've engaged Pronto Professional Services doesn't count toward your monthly quota of 3!

How much does each Solution Statement Cost?

Each Solution Statement is free to subscribers. If you choose to engage Pronto Professional Services, that cost is stated in the Solution Statement as a fixed quote, as are the deliverables and our time frame. You incur the Pronto Professional Services cost if and only if you choose to Go Forward on that particular Solution Statement with Pronto Professional Services. You're always free to DIY, give it to another provider, or table it.

What's your guarantee that you'll do a good job?

You are the judge. If Pronto Professional Services implements a Solution Statement you have 30 days from the date of the implementation to request a 100% refund for those Pronto Professional Services for that Solution Statement.

Why is Go Forward a Subscription?

Pronto needs a framework, a contract, under which we perform the services. The subscription provides both parties with the fundamental security of non-disclosures, licensing and your access to our 30-day money back guarantee on every Solution Statement done as part of Go Forward.
