Dallas, TX. Today Voicegain has announced it very competitive pricing for its ASR / IVR platform.
To understand how the pricing applies to the various components and services of the Voicegain platform let's define some of the terminology used:
Time - the time referenced in pricing is the Audio time, not the processing time. For example, if 1 hour long audio is submitted for off-line transcription and the transcription takes 20 minutes, the customer will be billed for 60 minutes of Speech-to-Text Engine time.
Session time - this may be one of the following types of sessions: SIP/RTP. WebRTC, MRCP, Programmable IVR, real-time streaming (websocket, gRPC). During such session multiple recognition events may occur which will be billed separately from the underlying session. -- Time billed is from start of the session to the end of it.
Cloud - services provided by Voicegain in the Cloud - pricing covers both the license and the Voicegain operating cost (hardware, power, bandwidth) of the services
Edge - services run on customer provided infrastructure - the price is just the license.
Premium Model - the default Voicegain Acoustic Model available to all customers - for accuracy see the blog post.
Standard Model - less accurate (by about 2-3% WER) but less expensive Voicegain Acoustic Models - please contact us if you would like to use this model.
User-Trained (Custom) Model - Acoustic Model trained by the Customer. There is no extra cost to Custom Model Training however when used on Cloud it requires use commitments.
Pricing: Voicegain Cloud & Edge
Standard Acoustic Model Speech-to-Text: 0.70 cents per minute
Premium and Custom Acoustic Model Speech-to-Text: 0.95 cents per minute
Session Time: 0.25 cents per minute
Details about how time is counted towards billing, SLA, etc.
None of the billing is per port. Voicegain does not license or bill ports - only the time used is billed.
If Speech-to-Text is used together with IVR then the Recognizer time is billed on top of IVR session.
Speech-to-Text time accrues at 1 second increments with minimum charge of 1 seconds.
MRCP, SIP, WebRTC and Programmable IVR Session Time accrues at 1 second increments with minimum session charge of 10 seconds
gRPC and Websocket Streaming Session Time accrues at 1 second increments with minimum session charge of 10 seconds
SLA details are available here.
Large volume discounts are available. The discounts are even larger for customers using Edge deployments.
