We do offer a basic free plan of Ayoa, which you can use free of charge. However, the features on the Basic plan are limited. For access to Ayoa’s full features and the ability to make unlimited Boards, you will need to subscribe to our Advanced plan. More information can be found on our Pricing page here.
Unlike iMindmap, Ayoa is a Software as a Service product. Here at OpenGenius, we’re always moving forward – the single biggest benefit of using a SaaS model is we can easily provide continual updates and improvements to our users. Under a perpetual license product, we went through 11 versions of iMindMap – that’s a lot. Now, enhancements can be made instantly accessible to our user base.
The modern world is moving increasingly towards subscription-based products – even the entertainment industry has funneled into a new realm of streaming services; this is because it improves overall user experience and better facilitates growth. Ayoa is web-based which means it is accessible anywhere, from any internet connected device. Work is always safe (even if your laptop dies!) and collaboration is easy. We’re an innovation company, and ultimately we have to move with the times to keep providing our customers with the best software possible.
