What is a team?

A team is a shared presence on Officehours, for a group. Every team has its own unique subdomain, brand treatments, and administration tools.

Why do people use Teams?

Our Teams program allows organizations to present a unified front to their audience. We think this is most useful for schools, as students can find all of their instructors in one place. That said, we believe it also affords utility to startup incubators, venture capital firms, and tourism organizations. (Essentially, any group that needs to support an audience, and wants to do so efficiently.)

Here’s the spiel:

How much does a team cost?

Teams subscriptions are offered in tiers, including:

  • Basic 5 (up to 5 advisors): $25/mo.
  • Basic 10 (up to 10 advisors): $50/mo.
  • Basic 25 (up to 25 advisors): $125/mo.
  • Basic 50 (up to 50 advisors): $250/mo.
  • Advanced 100 (up to 100 advisors): $500/mo.
  • Advanced 250 (up to 250 advisors): $1,250/mo.

These are our working prices. However, as we’re adding features to Teams, our cost structure changes. As such, these prices will likely be revised as we get a better sense for our costs.
