The short version: I want to "rent" an Intranet solution to college programs following the SaaS model, charging $6/month/user.
- Certain college program in my old university wants to have a private "intranet" for its members.
- By intranet, they mean a closed social network were they can share files, allow communication within the members of the program, forum/message boards and a member directory. (Im aware of slack, yammer, etc, but they arent)
- Back in the day (2 yrs ago) they paid some local dev shop around 30k USD to have the project developed, they lost the money as the intranet was never launched.
I know how to solve their problem - a Buddypress/Wordpress site. The solution would consists in a Hosted, managed Budypress-wordpress site, rebranded to fit their institutional branding. I would brand it as my own "solution" etc.... the potential costs of running the platform for the program are around $300/USD per month for hosting.
My plan is to offer this Intranet via the SaaS model, renting them the solution for $6USD user/month. The program has around 300 members, so I would be looking at a MRR of $1800 USD. There are 20 other similar programs which could be down to rent the platform.
Can you guys provide feexback? How much should I charge? I know I'm providing value, just not sure how much.
