When does the new pricing model come into effect?

For Partners, the new pricing model will apply to new clients signing up to enableHR from 1st April 2017.

For existing clients, there will be a transitionary period beginning on 1st July 2017 for moving clients from the old model to the new pricing model.

Existing Monthly Subscriptions - For clients who have exceeded their minimum 12-month subscription period, the new pricing model will apply to them from 1st July 2017.

For clients who are within their initial 12-month subscription period, the new pricing model will be applied from the thirteenth month of their subscription, provided that month is after 1st July 2017.

Existing Annual Subscriptions - When the clients’ next annual subscription is due for renewal, the new pricing model will apply from 1st July 2017 onwards where the client will be required to pay for the subscription on a monthly basis.


Under the new pricing model, who will pay for the enableHR subscription?

Under the new model, clients will pay enableHR directly for their subscription. enableHR will then pay Partners the associated commission.


From 1st April, how will clients sign up for an enableHR subscription through Partners?

Within your Partner Dashboard, you will have a unique link that you can provide to your clients. This will allow your clients to enter their business details and pay for their enableHR subscription. As this link is unique to you as a Partner, your client’s account will be created within your Partner Dashboard so that you can access and manage the account as per the usual process.


What collateral will enableHR provide to Partners to assist with the new sales process from 1st April? 

Under the new model, clients will enter their own business and payment details when they create their subscription to enableHR. As such, Partners will not need to gather as much information prior to the creation of the enableHR account. 

enableHR will continue to provide marketing collateral and a sales proposal template for Partners to use, these can be accessed from your Partner Dashboard.  


When and how will Clients be charged?

Clients will be asked to enter payment details when they sign up to an enableHR subscription via the unique link that you provide to them. 

Clients will be automatically charged monthly thereafter using the payment details supplied when the enableHR account was created.


What will clients be charged?

Clients will be charged $75 upon creation of an enableHR subscription, this will cover up to 10 workers.

The subscription will be charged for the base amount and any additional workers (above 10) on a monthly basis thereafter.

Additional workers are charged based on the highest number of active workers within enableHR in the previous month.

For example, if an account is created on the 22nd April:

22nd April - $75 + GST will be deducted from the payment card

24th April –10 workers are entered into enableHR

22nd May  - $75 + GST (no additional workers) will be charged

5th June – A further 15 workers are entered into enableHR

22nd June - $187.50 + gst ($75 + 15*$7.50) will be charged


How will Clients know how much they will be charged? 

Three days before a payment is due to be taken, an email will be sent advising what the payment amount is estimated to be for that month. We can only provide an estimate at this time based on the most number of workers that have been active to that date in that month, i.e. no further workers being entered into the system before the payment is due to be taken.


Will Partners be able to easily access information that indicates the number of workers each of their clients has in enableHR?

Yes, an additional tab has been added to the Account Settings in each client's account. A table displaying all current workers will be located under the 'Payment Information' tab. 


When will Partners receive their commission?

Commission will be calculated on the first business day of each month for the prior month.  Commission payments will be processed within 7 business days, of the month end and processed to each Partner’s nominated bank account by EFT. Sometimes these transactions may take a day or two to appear in your bank account.


How will Partners be paid their commission?

At the end of each month, enableHR will raise an invoice to enableHR on behalf of each Partner. The invoice will be based on 20% of the amount the clients of a Partner have collectively been charged for their licenses in the previous month.  The invoice will provide a breakdown of how much each client was individually charged.  Commission will be paid into your nominated bank account by EFT.


Have Partner’s existing clients been advised there is a new pricing model?

No, at this stage we have only communicated this with our Partners.


How will enableHR assist Partners with communicating the change to their existing clients?

Partners will be responsible for transitioning their clients across to the new pricing model.  enableHR will however provide on-going assistance throughout this transitionary period. 

We are currently creating collateral to assist Partners with demonstrating the benefits of the all-inclusive enableHR platform to assist with the transition period that begins on 1st July 2017.

enableHR will also prepare a range of draft communications explaining the new pricing model that Partners can tailor and adapt to suit their preferences and respective client needs.  These tools should provide the necessary support to ensure a smooth, streamlined and successful transition of existing clients. 

Partners can choose whether they wish to use this collateral or not.


Will enableHR communicate with Partner’s clients about the new pricing model?

No, Partners will manage these communications directly with their clients. If a client has not moved to the new pricing model seven days prior to their renewal, they will receive an email from enableHR advising we require their payment details.


How do Partners sign up their clients for the new model now?

New Clients – Prior to 1st April, contact Client Experience and ask to be sent the link to start using the new pricing model.

Existing Clients – Prior to 1st July, contact Client Experience and ask to move your client to the new pricing model. Your client will pay for the new pricing model upon their next renewal date. When they first login, they will be asked to enter their payment details and agree to the updated License Agreement.


Can enableHR provide a sample invoice that will be received by clients?

Yes, please see the bottom of this Knowledge Base article to download a sample invoice.


What is the process for the transition?

Each enableHR account will be issued with a unique URL to facilitate the transition to the new pricing model. Partners will be able to access the URL’S for each of their clients from their Partner dashboard. You can either send the unique links to each of your clients, or alternatively they will be able to access their own link from the Account settings in their enableHR account.

This URL will direct each client to Chargify where they will need to enter their payment details. The client’s business details will be pre-populated from their enableHR account. The client’s subscription renewal date will not be altered from its current renewal date. If the client’s account has passed their renewal date, the charge for their subscription will be calculated and they will be billed immediately. If the client is entering their payment details prior to the renewal date, they will not be billed until their renewal date.

Once a client has passed their renewal date and paid for their subscription under the new pricing model, their account will be updated within enableHR so that they can access all functionality currently available. If a client has had any customisation to checklists or documents, their account will not automatically be updated as we do not want to lose the customisation. We will assist with updating these accounts.

If a client will be gaining access to eSS or OPR for the first time, Partners should send a communication detailing the new functionality and that the workflows/checklists in their account will be updated. enableHR will be providing templates that Partners can use to assist with this communication. Most new functionality that clients will be gaining access to will be based on which Role a user has. This is so that clients can remain in control of areas of enableHR their users have access to. For example, some users may not require access to employee details. The templated communication that enableHR will provide will include details on assigning the Roles to users to access the new functionality.  

If clients have not entered their details to transition to the new model 7 days prior to their renewal date, enableHR will need to send a communication to the client to advise them that they will not be able to login to their account if we have not received their payment details by their renewal date.  

After the renewal date has passed, a client will not be able to access their enableHR account without providing their payment details.

Once a client has transitioned to the new price model, the subscription that was attached to the Partners payment details will be cancelled.
