The initial fee for the full Database service is US$20,000. However, clients can subscribe to only specific portions of the Database. Some common options are outlined in the table below but customized database files can be prepared for any combination of qualifying criteria.
Subscriptions are corporate-wide as opposed to a per-user basis and as such can be utilized internally throughout the organization. And there is no time restriction on use of the data. Going forward, Database subscribers have the option to receive updates on a regular basis. The annual fee for the updating service is around 20% of the initial fee depending on the frequency. For the full Database, the cost of the annual updating service is US$4,500 for monthly updates, US$3,900 for quarterly (after all participating OEMs have provided their shipments reports) and US$3,500 for an annual update.
Because of the confidential nature and restrictions under which much of the data was obtained, participants are required to sign a confidentiality agreement defining permitted use of the database. Participating OEM’s are accorded a 15% discount and are required to provide listings of their machine shipments. All information supplied by participating OEM’s will be subject to the confidentiality agreement and data disclosed only as part of the overall Database. The Database contains no individual pricing, sales terms and conditions, forward-looking business plans or other information that might violate U.S. or other countries’ anti-trust regulations.
* Note: Machine populations shown here are approximate and represent only machines reported to be currently in service. Actual database segments will include additional listings for machines classified as “inactive” (e.g. ‘parked’, ‘for sale’, ‘unknown’ status). Active unit counts reflect the numbers as of the effective date for pricing with the updated counts available on the Mining Equipment Population page.
