In response to the differing needs and budgetary constraints of our clients, we offer a highly flexible licensing model that ensures smooth implementation of RUIS with a minimum of administrative fuss. Fees for the use of RUIS are banded to reflect the size of each institution, and we offer three implementation options.
RUIS Express offers very powerful room utilisation report and chart generation, without the need to learn all of the features of the software. RUIS Express is designed for those institutions that have tight budgetary constraints, or for those who wish to get to know the software before upgrading to the full-featured version.
The Express version of RUIS offers more than thirty room utilisation reports, including Campus, Precinct, Building, Room Type, Room, and Room Controller, as well as Timetable Profile and Usage By Week reports. There are no limits on the number of users of the system, and as many RUIS databases as needed can be created.
This is the fully-featured version of RUIS that provides users with all of the reporting and modelling power of the software. A once-only license fee is paid, with an annual maintenance charge due after the first year of use. The maintenance charge entitles the purchasing institution to free software support and upgrades. The license permits installation of the software on one web server, with unlimited user accounts. RUIS Express fees are discounted from the RUIS Professional fee for those users who wish to upgrade from RUIS Express to RUIS Professional.
In addition to the features offered in the Express version, RUIS Professional users have access to Required Rooms reports, which calculate the number of rooms of each type needed to satisfy a timetable; Comparison Reports that allow utilisation trends to be viewed, and the full range of Report Templates to set up automated reporting.
Fully hosted solutions are becoming increasingly popular, and Mosaic Software offers its clients a comprehensive remote hosting capability for both RUIS Express and RUIS Professional. The cloud solution is also popular with clients who have special or one-off projects that require the production of space utilization statistics.
