Nacsport Basic Subscriptions: Entry Level Analysis Made Easier

Here at Nacsport HQ, we love sports video analysis. We honestly believe that this discipline can help athletes and teams improve and reach their true potential, and we want everyone to get involved. 

 

But we also recognise that start up costs can be prohibitive to many. Apart from the hardware such as computers and cameras, the software itself might be out of reach for some.

 

So, we’ve been thinking about how we can improve this situation in a way which is fair to everyone whilst reducing the initial costs for clubs and analysts on a tight budget. And the answer was simple…a lower price for our entry level software, Nacsport Basic.

 

Obviously, there are some caveats involved, so let us tell you more about it…

Disclaimer

 

The information you are about to read is relevant to new Nacsport Basic users only and will not affect those users with a current Basic license.

 

If this is you, please scroll down to the Current Users section for more information.

 

Additionally, the information in this article pertains only to Nacsport Basic. Nacsport Basic+, Scout+, Pro+ and Elite maintain our famous Lifetime License model.

 

 

Nacsport Basic Goes Subscription Only

 

So, yeah, this, in a nutshell, is our plan. From the 1st of June, 2022, Nacsport Basic will be a subscription-only service. That is, users subscribe and get a one-year Basic license, throughout the year, they will have unlimited use of the software. At the end of the year, they can either choose to renew the license or not, in which case the software will cease to function.

 

As we said in the introduction, this will reduce the price of entry for new users and offer much more flexibility.

 

So, what does this mean in real terms? Well, it means a much cheaper price in the short term. Let’s break it down…

 

 

 

The Current Cost of Nacsport Basic

 

As most current users, Nacsport Basic already has a pseudo-subscription model where, after the first year, a mandatory payment must be made for our world-beating Support and Update Service (SUS), otherwise the software will cease to function.

 

The current prices are:

 

•    Initial Payment: €150 / £130 / $190
 
•    Mandatory Yearly SUS Payment: €40 / £40 / $50

 

SUS is included in this price for the first year. Mandatory payments begin from year 2 onwards.

 

 

 

The Cost of a Nacsport Basic Subscription

 

From the 1st of June, 2022, the above pricing will be replaced with a full subscription model. Yearly payments must be made to keep the software running, but SUS payments will be included in the price.

 

The new subscription price is:

 

•    Yearly Subscription: €85 / £75 / $95

 

And that’s it! We believe this is a much cleaner, simpler solution which reduces the price and makes it easier for coaches and teams on a tight budget to enter the world of sports video analysis.

 

 

The Benefits of a Subscription

 

Here are a few of the many benefits of having a subscription model for Nacsport Basic:

 

•    Lower entry-level price. Interested in video analysis and want to try out one of the industry-leading software packages? Well, it has never been cheaper to do so!


•    More flexibility. A subscription model is perfect for those who only need to use the software for a short time. Students, analysts with temporary positions, beginners planning to transition to higher level programs, and many more benefit from yearly subscriptions.


•    Support and Update Service included. Having issues with the software? Get in contact with us and we’ll help you out straight away. Want the latest version of the software? It’s yours and will be updated automatically.


•    Easier payment model to understand. A subscription model is simpler, cleaner and easier to manage.


•    Industry standard. The subscription model has become the industry standard for video analysis software, with Nacsport’s Lifetime License model being something of an outlier. A Basic subscription makes it easier to compare prices and get the fairest deal for you.

 

 

 

Current User or Prefer the Old Model?

 

We understand that there are pros and cons to the subscription model but for new users, we thoroughly believe that this is the best way forward.

 

But what if you have already bought Basic and currently pay the yearly SUS payments?

 

Well, don’t worry, we’re not going to force you into the subscription model. In fact, as long as you have your Support and Update Service payments up-to-date and active on the 31st of May, 2022, nothing will change for you. The price you currently pay is the price you will continue to pay in the future, guaranteed.

 

And new users who prefer the old model to the subscription model?

 

Well, in some cases, this may be understandable, especially if you are thinking in the long term where the higher initial price will be evened out with the lower yearly payments. If this is you, you have until the 31st of May, 2022 to contract Basic based on the old model. After this, the option will disappear forever, and the only option left to you will be the yearly subscription.

 

So, don’t wait, buy it now…

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

We believe this is a positive step forward which puts powerful sports analysis software within the reach of everyone.

 

Again, we’d like to reiterate, these changes will come into effect on the 1st of June, 2022. If you want to take advantage of the current offers for Basic, or if you have any comments or questions about this change, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.
