What is the difference between password management and Single Sign-on?

For password management our Password Vault lets you store your own login credentials in Airstack if you’d like and quickly get logged in to apps while you’re in the product.

With SAML-based Single Sign-on, an IT administrator can configure certain tools so that employees will just login automatically via their Airstack account or Office 365 account (if you have Azure AD set up), without ever having to enter their own credentials.

Who can I talk to for a demo or help in my trial?

The Airstack team is happy to talk and give you a product tour before you set up your trial as well as give you hands-on support getting it rolled out across your teams. Contact us via this form here.

What's the difference between Teams and Business?

Teams edition is designed for those managing technology and teams to easily organize and share digital tools across the business. Perfect for onboarding, technology managers can build app cards and stacks, share those stacks with others, add files, links, notes, record and post videos, find new apps and manage passwords and logins.

Airstack Business takes tech stack management to the next level for your business. With all the features of the Teams edition plus our expanded integration with Azure AD, Business edition allows for automatic account provisioning through your company directory so everyone can access Airstack. Office 365 integrations and Airstack meeting capabilities let users bring email, calendar and video calling into the workspace for easy collaboration. And, advanced reporting gives insights into the gaps and overlap in the tools you’re using.

How does monthly vs. annual pricing work?

When you’re going through your trial you’ll have the option to subscribe via monthly or annual payments inside of the Airstack app. You can choose monthly up to 200 users if you prefer to pay that way, or go ahead and buy for a whole year if that’s easier. Our annual discounts are around 5-6%.

If you need to do a purchase order, or would like to talk to a sales rep you can contact us here.

Can I do per user pricing?

Airstack is set up to make it easy for you to invite other team members without having to think about pricing too much.

So if you want to grow from 10 users to 20 to 30 to 40 your monthly or annual cost will stay the same. And as your business grows you can step up to the next level in Teams or Business.

We’re open to your feedback if you’d like to do it differently, so let us know on our feedback page or we’re happy to have a conversation if you’ll fill out the form here.

What happens at the end of the trial?

After your 30-day trial ends, your users and all of the account information will stay in Airstack, but you won’t be able to invite additional users. To invite users after your trial ends, you can upgrade to a paid version in the Airstack app or by working with sales to renew your subscription annually.

We’re open to extending trials on a case-by-case basis. Reach out on the form below if you need a little more time!
