One subscription VS multiple: How to structure multiple applications within a business

Eddie Heijblom

Deciding whether you need a separate Triggre subscription is an important consideration as your business grows and evolves. Triggre offers a flexible pricing model that accommodates various business sizes and needs, which you can explore in detail here. Typically, one subscription suffices for many businesses, as Triggre is developed with scalability in mind: you can automate various solutions within the same platform, iteratively expanding your application's functionality. However, there are specific scenarios where multiple subscriptions might be necessary or beneficial.

When one subscription is enough

With a single Triggre subscription, you can build and manage multiple solutions for your business. This approach is efficient and cost-effective for most users. For instance, you can start with a basic CRM system and later expand it to include functionalities such as order management or event scheduling without needing an additional subscription. This not only saves cost but also allows you to leverage and reuse existing flows and processes across different parts of your application seamlessly.

Triggre’s design enables different roles within your organization to access tailored functionalities. So, whether it’s managing orders or sending calendar invites, all these can be handled under one umbrella, keeping operations streamlined and interconnected.

Scenarios where multiple subscriptions make sense

However, there are circumstances where having separate subscriptions can enhance performance, simplify management, or comply with legal requirements:

  1. Complexity in functionality: If your application grows to a point where its complexity could hinder manageability, it might be optimal to divide it into simpler, standalone applications. This can make each application easier to manage and update, while they can still be connected using Triggre’s advanced API capabilities.
  1. Regional data management compliance: Legal and regulatory requirements might dictate how and where data is stored and processed. For example, if customer data needs to be stored within specific geographic boundaries, you might require separate subscriptions to align with these regulations, especially if you operate across different markets.
  1. Distinct URLs for different functions: If your business process benefits from having separate URLs—for instance, one for internal warehouse management and another for external customer support—multiple subscriptions can be advantageous. This setup enhances the organizational structure and can simplify user access and external communications.
  1. Business entity separation: In cases where a business is being divided into multiple legal entities, each entity will typically require its own subscription. This separation ensures that billing, data management, and application development are handled independently, aligning with the distinct needs and compliance requirements of each entity.
