Consider the time you will spend trying to study and learn about how to
install Domino.  If you can have it done with less of your time, let see 1
week training compared to 1-2 months leering and installing, what is
cheaper?  Unless you are going to provide the service of installing Domino
to your customers, I think it is cheaper in the long run to have it done for
you.  $40,000 seems steep and I would want a complete plan of how much time
they will be spending at your site doing the installation and training.
Can't be more than a week.

Does that $40,000 include 3 years of maintenance and help desk?  If so, it
is worth it.  If not, pitch it to them.

Subject: Domino Evaluation

Hello all,

We are currently in the process of evaluating Email/Groupware for our 
organization. After visiting Common this fall, we have basically decided on 
Domino, running native on our AS/400, as the preferred solution. We started 
getting pricing and everything fell right into our budget until we got the 
quote from our business partner for installation and training.

My question is twofold: 1) Is $40,000.00 out of line for installation and 
training for this product?
                                  2) In your experience, is Domino that 
difficult to install and set up to warrant this, in my opinion, outlandish 

We are a 4 person shop with quite a few years of midrange experience 
between us.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Mark Walter
