Our previous article was an overview of what you can expect from our Enterprise plan. In this article, we'll explain how to request premium features and become a Corporate client. We will dive deeper into benefits and present future gains.
Let’s start with a simple use case: a medical research company uses annotated data for studies. As the company grows, the amount of data to be labeled increases accordingly, making manual annotation time-consuming and error-prone. So they start using CVAT's self-hosted platform, as it can be customized to meet internal requirements and has integrated models for automatic labeling.
The company starts with a free version but finds some important features missing, so they submit feature requests to CVAT's GitHub and wait for them to be added to the platform.
However, there is no guarantee that the requested features will be implemented or when they will be delivered.
Because once you submit the feature request, you must wait in hope that it will be selected for development, keeping in mind that there are some drawbacks to this approach:
This is where requesting a Feature Boost can help. You can directly contact the CVAT developer team because, at CVAT.ai, we are eager to listen to your needs and prioritize your requests ahead of our roadmap.
Now to start working with CVAT.ai there is a list of requirements you need to fit:
If you fit all three points above, then the process will look like this:
Step 1: You contact CVAT.ai through one of our communication channels. We advise LinkedIn or Sales.
Step 2: We sign an NDA first. Then the CVAT team will listen to your request, discuss all the details, and ask for additional materials from your side if needed.
Step 3: CVAT.ai will process the request internally, breaking it down into stages and estimating the costs. Some additional information from you might be needed at this stage, so we will stay in touch with you.
Step 4: Once costs and stages are estimated internally, CVAT.ai will make a proposal, and start a discussion with you regarding the pricing options, project stages, and timelines for implementing the project. If everything aligns with your needs, we will proceed to sign the contract.
Note: This step may also include procurement procedures and other additional activities on both sides.
Step 5: Development starts as agreed in the contract.
What will you get?
The ready project will come in two parts:
After the feature is deployed we will help with the integration of this feature into your workflow.
We will provide support for a month to make sure the feature works as you desire and you feel comfortable using it. If there are any bugs, they will be fixed with no additional payment.
The feature will be updated on time if it is not exclusive and went into the CVAT open-source repository.
If you are curious about real-life examples, here is a list of the features that we created with Feature Boost plans:
Analytics and monitoring, also known as audit logs.
Webhooks for Projects and Organizations that are used to handle application notifications about changes in a specific project or organization.
