We earn Customers’ Choice awards for a reason.

We value trust. Unlike competitors, we don’t disguise our true cost with complex pricing schemes based on transactions or non-transparent partial user concepts designed to take advantage of you once you’re locked into a contract.

Frequently Asked Questions

We offer several license types so that you can pick what best meets your needs.  In addition to the free trial, which gives you access to our full platform, you can choose to license by user or by development.  Not sure what’s best for you?  Contact us and we’ll help you consider all the factors.

We know that business needs vary and not all users are power-users.  It’s why our Standard license offers multiple user-types, including infrequent users and even input-only users.

Standard Users have admin access, development capabilities, and normal day-to-day functions.

An Infrequent User has up to three, 24-hour sessions per month.

An Input-Only user is an internal or external user with the ability to submit forms/requests to the application.

We value your trust above all else.  It’s why Gartner Peer Insights named us Customers’ Choice in 2021 for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms.  We strive for transparency so that you know exactly what you’re getting before you ever sign a contract.

One of the many benefits for cloud customers of developing your applications on the Appian Low-code Automation Platform is that our platform enhancements flow through to you.  When we deploy a new feature or develop a new UX template, you get it at no additional cost.  When we upgrade to attain the latest security certification, you again benefit.  We've got you covered.

We only succeed if you succeed, so our incentives are fully aligned.  We will help you onboard and will continue supporting you as needed.  From designated support contacts to 24x7x365 always-on technical support and Customer Success teams.  For detailed information please visit our Customer Support page.
