RAMCO uses a “tiered” pricing model for its ongoing monthly user fees. The one-time implementation fees are based primarily on the actual work involved to convert your existing data, configure your new RAMCO system and train your staff. To assist you with the somewhat technical terms, there’s a glossary at the bottom of the page.
Monthly User Fees
Tier One (1st through 3rd Users) $167/user/month
Regardless of total number, users 1 through 3 are billed at this rate.
Tier Two (4th through 14th Users) $147/user/month
Regardless of total number, users 4 through 14 are billed at this rate.
Tier Three (15th and above) $ 130/user/month
Regardless of total number, users 15 and above will be billed at this rate.
The matrix below incorporates these tiered pricing calculations in the Per Month and Per Year totals shown.
|TIER ONE: $167/user

|TIER TWO: $147/user

On site Training ($2,700/day)

Special development services are available through RAMCO to cover the needs of individual associations provided that what is developed does not interfere with any of the core functions of the RAMCO system. Call to request a quote for your particular enhancement or modification.
Working With the REALTOR Federal Credit Union
RAMCO has arranged with the REALTORS® Federal Credit Union to offer loans to associations that would prefer to spread the one-time Implementation Fee and/or Sitefinity website costs over a multi-year period.

Definitions of Terms Used in this Pricing Model
These are customized data fields in which you enter data under a basic member record such as name, address, etc. These fields are called “attributes” for that record and are what creates an “entity”. For example, say the entity is a member contact record. It would be made up of the “attributes” for first name, last name, e-mail address, phone number, etc. When you create a custom entity, you have to create custom attributes to name and hold the important data.
A custom table or “Set of Information”. An entity in RAMCO is equivalent to a database table. In other words, it’s the way information is stored in the system and RAMCO allows you to create as many custom ones as you need. That’s a huge leap over most other systems that have nowhere near this same flexibility.
Web Portal Design Template
This template is what gives style and branding to the online portal. The web portal design template uses your existing association branding (or any branding options you specify), such as logos and color palette, to match your existing website. The template includes a header and footer with basic information about your Association.
The portal is a secure website that allows members, as well as anyone else you allow access, to interact securely with your RAMCO system. Think of it as a “members-only door” into your system. Through the portal you can offer course and event registration, host an online calendar of upcoming events, sell products, host a searchable member or office directory, allow members to pay dues as well as update their profile and contact information. The portal is not meant to be a replacement for your existing website. Instead, links to the secure portal would be embedded in your existing website so that when members click on “Pay My Dues” or “Sign up for a Committee”, they would be redirected to the portal and asked to log in to continue.
The web portal pricing is included in the Implementation Fee for Custom and Standard Source systems. However, since the NRDS-only data load and training is only $1200, the portal’s actual cost of $2,800 had to be made optional.
For a complete website package please refer to the Sitefinity upgrade.
The total number of accounts (offices) and contacts (members). Initial RAMCO implementation pricing was keyed to the number of records. This criteria was removed in January, 2012 and an unlimited number of records may be imported at time of data conversion.
A users is a designated staff individual. Named users cannot be switched but may be substituted if a staff person leaves.
Single Source Import
This refers to the transfer of data from an association’s old system to RAMCO. “Single source” refers to one of the approved membership systems. Approved systems are as follows:
ASI iMIS – Version 15.x or 10.x
Rapattoni Magic – Version 9 or NetMagic 1.x
Fidelity LAMPS – Version 3.x or 2.x
MarketLinx MMSI/Membership Director – Version 6.x or 5.x
Avectra NetForum – Version 2010 or 3.0
If an association has data stored outside their current vendor’s system such as in a separate Access database or Excel spreadsheets, there may be an additional charge for importing it into the system. However, RAMCO’s system comes with robust import tools so an association could import its own Excel information (being careful not to overwrite more recent or accurate information).
Sitefinity is a complete content management system for creating websites. It provides templates for page design and allows you to design your own pages using simple interfaces. It provides for discussion boards, blogging and membership surveys as well as full integration with the RAMCO system and is designed to replace your current website. It is best used in conjunction with the web portal so members and non-members can interact with your association website in a seamless way.
Training sessions will be conducted via conference calls using an online conferencing system. An agenda and training material will be sent in advance and the session recorded for future use. An on-line library of video training tutorials covering standard RAMCO features will also be available.
