Feature Boost: Request features you need the most

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:

  • The feature might not be selected for development.
  • The feature might not be implemented as requested.
  • There's no guarantee for how long development will take.

This is where requesting a Feature Boost can help. You can directly contact the CVAT developer team because, at, we are eager to listen to your needs and prioritize your requests ahead of our roadmap.

Now to start working with there is a list of requirements you need to fit:

  • Price: The agreement we make with you comes with a price of $50,000 and up per contract. The contract can include one or several big features or many small ones. 
  • Availability: As CVAT is an open-source platform, most of the features we develop are added to the public repository. We can include exclusive features in the contract as an exception, but they should not be core features and must be discussed and agreed upon first.
  • Deployment: We will help you to deploy your features, but the CVAT team will not rework your company’s infrastructure or adjust internal services.

If you fit all three points above, then the process will look like this:

Step 1: You contact 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: 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, 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:

  • MVP: the first prototype that we will show to you, so adjustments can be done if needed. Also at this stage, you can stop the development. You will pay only 20% of the agreed price in this case.
  • All the rest: after MVP is approved, we go on with the rest of the development and release the feature.

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:

Annotation with skeletons.


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.
