Usage Plans

The Kore.ai XO Platform offers flexible usage plans for launching virtual assistants. You can select a plan of your choice using our self-service model or reach out to us for a customized enterprise plan. The self-service model offers a free plan as well as a pay-as-you-go plan. The following are the available plans and their features:

Free Plan
The Free Plan is available only in the global instance (https://bots.kore.ai) of the Kore.ai Platform. This plan is ideal for learning the platform, building a proof of concept, launching simple use cases, etc.

Standard Plan
The Standard Plan is available only in the global instance (https://bots.kore.ai) of the Kore.ai Platform. This plan is a pay-as-you-go plan with a request-based pricing model. A User Request is defined as any input from the user to the virtual assistant.

Enterprise Plan
The Enterprise Plan is available in all instances of the Kore.ai XO Platform (Global, EU, and JP). This plan is for enterprises with high volumes and enterprise administration needs. The usage is measured using a session-based model. 15 minutes of user interaction with the virtual assistant is defined as a session. A session can include any number of user inputs. You can reach out to us to subscribe to the Enterprise Plan.

Usage Plan Limits

The platform applies various limits and enforcements on the usage of the virtual assistant based on the plan associated with it.
