Monday.com is for anyone and everyone in need of more order in their professional lives. Whether you’re looking for a solution to manage a team of dozens of professionals and freelancers, or to better coordinate with colleagues and managers, you can count on monday.com to bring everyone together.
Flexibility is the name of the game. The highly visual design of monday․com allows you to construct boards and workflow applications that perfectly match your specific requirements. You can divide your work into separate boards with individual columns that compartmentalize your work into easy-to-manage and update sections.
Monday.com plan options vary quite a bit in features and power. The features and capabilities are categorized into various plans to meet everyone where they are right now and where they want to be. Each pricing plan is crafted to provide a company with the management experience that best suits its needs.
With five plans that range in price and features, you’re bound to find the right version of monday․com for you and your team. You can pick anything from an individual free plan that allows you to kickstart your digital project and team management endeavors to the specialized Pro and Enterprise plans that come with added integration options, faster support, and a wider array of features.
Pro and Enterprise are monday.com’s most sophisticated and premium plans, for those who want to get the most out of the platform. While the monday․com Pro and Enterprise plans are designed for companies and corporations with multiple functional areas to manage, these plans are often the right answer for growing startups and small teams, too.
Instead of asking if one plan is better than the other, it’s best to examine them as different services for companies with different needs. While the Pro and Enterprise plans overlap in many ways, they do differ. It’s worth taking a deeper look into both to make the best long-term decision for your business.
If you're just starting out with monday.com, you may already be familiar with the Pro plan as it is what you experience during the free trial period. The Pro plan is well-suited for businesses with multiple teams of tens or hundreds of individuals to manage. Pro can assist you in streamlining and running your teams’ complex workflows within a cohesive workspace that includes business processes, standard operating procedures, individual projects, tasks, and deadlines.
The monday.com Enterprise plan may be the best option for you if you went through the free trial period but still felt something was missing. While the plan is made for enterprises looking to take their project and teams workflow management to the highest level with monday.com alone, its features can be incredibly useful to many small businesses and startups.
As the name suggests, the monday.com Enterprise plan carries enterprise-level permission and security features, VIP support access, powerful reporting capabilities and many more customization options compared to Pro. It also significantly increases your ability to leverage everything from automations to file storage.
Whether you’re looking for large-scale integration and operations or the ability to encompass the entirety of your workflow into a single platform, this plan could be right for you.
The best place to start evaluating your decision is by looking at what each plan offers in terms of features, scale, functionality, and monday.com support and add-ons.
The Pro plan's permission capabilities center primarily around appointing board owners. A board owner can control who has edit and content creation privileges in boards as a whole, but not specific items within that board. So, if you’re looking for complete control and administrator access from all angles, it may be worth looking into the Enterprise plan for monday․com.
The Enterprise plan comes with multi-level permissions control. It’s an all-inclusive feature that covers item permissions, column permissions, dashboard and workspace permissions, and account permissions.
You can choose who has access to specific elements and boards and what type of actions they’re authorized to perform. Additionally, this control extends to board guests as you can limit access permissions by IP address or even domain.
Another aspect that plays a major role in determining the right monday.com pricing plan for your business is the scale and capacity of the services and features. This is directly influenced not only by your company's current scale and workflow but also by your anticipated growth.
The Pro and Enterprise plan can both be scaled to include the right number of employee seats, items, boards, and workdocs. However, if your workflow relies heavily on exchanging relatively large attachments, file storage allowance will need to keep up. The Pro plan comes with 100 GB of cloud storage. In comparison, the Enterprise plan offers 10 times the capacity at 1000 GB — nearing a Terabyte of cloud storage.
Additionally, the Pro plan only retains the last year of activity logging and tracking, while the Enterprise plan offers complete access to detailed activity logs from five years back. One year may seem enough to finish up medium-sized projects, but it can be easy to lose track of work with more intensive endeavors that take years to accomplish. You may also want to be able to measure the productivity of your team year over year, which is more easily done with the Enterprise plan. Long-term activity logging and tracking for several years is often a requirement in many industries, for example, commercial construction, real estate or investment management.
Your industry and geo location determine your security and privacy needs, and the Pro and Enterprise plans are designed to accommodate companies at various levels. Operating in the financial or healthcare industries requires more strict security and privacy features to comply with local laws, which only the Enterprise plan offers.
The Pro version includes all the standard security and privacy measures you’d expect an online platform to have. It’s SOC 2 compliant, and has built-in Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) using Google Authentication, as well as the ability to create private boards for sensitive information.
Stepping above that, the Enterprise plan comes with all the security and privacy measures an enterprise requires, like user management control and advanced account permissions. The Enterprise plan also allows you to utilize Single Sign-On options with Okta, One Login, Azure AD, and Custom SAML. It’s HIPAA compliant and allows you to restrict access by IP address. You can also restrict who is allowed to download data from your boards into Excel, another popular security feature of Enterprise.
Reporting and analytics capabilities vary quite a bit between the two plans. Both plans come with many standard reporting and analytics tools and features:
The Pro plan offers multiple reporting and data viewing tools but doesn't include built-in data analytics tools like pivot tables. While Pro users can always export data into third-party software for more granular analysis, if your growth and sustainability are based on deeply analyzing previous trends, it may be worth investing in the Enterprise plan for its advanced reporting.
For example, the monday․com Enterprise Plan enables access to work performance insights, enabling you to visualize and understand the performance of previous projects and workflows to know what is working well, and what isn't. In addition, Enterprise provides more data analytics, allowing you to slice and dice your board data with pivot table analysis and visualization for more powerful reporting. Plus with Enterprise, reporting insights, trends, and anomalies can be delivered automatically to your email inbox.
All monday.com plans have access to a self-service knowledge base and an active online user community, in addition to 24/7 customer support and frequent live webinars about new features and best practices.
The Enterprise plan gains you access to the priority customer support team, and takes things a step further by guaranteeing a 99.9% uptime rate. Enterprise plans of 50+ seats will be assigned a dedicated customer success manager who can provide you with tailored onboarding tips and complimentary training hours to get you started on the right foot.
