It's been a while since we made any big changes to our website and mobile apps, but now is the time for change. From April 2018 we will be making two of the biggest changes that we have made in the last 5 years. The two significant changes will be to the features and cost.
Cost - Let's get this out of the way first!
As a social enterprise, CPDme makes no profit and has no shareholders. All the money is invested back in our members and development opportunities like our Free CPD webinars and development innovations.
Our member database is increasing at a rate far greater than we ever expected with over 39 entries made per hour, and the storage space increasing by over 4.5GB per day. That's a lot of submissions!
As you will know, we have never lost anyones CPD entry as data protection and storage is our platform for success. Sadly this comes at a premium, as we use the most expensive servers in the world (Amazons). Why? Simply because they are reliable and safe.
The membership cost for NEW members will be increasing to £19.99 from the 16th April 2018. This will also affect people who are not on a recurring payment plan such as direct debit.
However, you will have the option to pay either monthly or yearly. The cost Monthly will be £1.99 or yearly will be £19.99.
If you already have a direct debit (GoCardless) set up, your price will not be increasing and this will remain the same as long as your direct debit is active. If it is cancelled or fails, you will be required to go onto the new plan.
If your employer or organisation pay for your membership or access to our systems, then this will not affect you whilst you are under their umbrella.
People on a Direct Debit or Recurring payment plan will have all the new premium features unlocked in both our website and the upcoming mobile app.
There will be a host of new features coming from April 2018 onwards including:
