We offer a number of programs that make it easy for institutions to purchase the Visual Thesaurus and provide access to their population at a discounted rate. We also offer special discounts to accredited academic institutions.
With a Site License, your entire organization has instant access to the Visual Thesaurus, VocabGrabber, the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee, and the online magazine. The Visual Thesaurus is easy to install and administrate. We offer:
One advantage of a Site License is that your users do not have to remember a username and password. Instead, we provide a number of advanced authentication methods.
Site License pricing is calculated based on the entire population who has access to the Visual Thesaurus.

If you would like to provide access to a group of people who each have their own email address, then a Group Subscription may be right for you. Each user you add to your Group Subscription gets their own individual account and login that is linked to their email address. Additional users enjoy all the same features and functionality as the administrative user, but they have no access to billing and sensitive account information.
Group Subscriptions may only be billed through a credit card and can be purchased through our web site by clicking here.

If you are interested in providing the Visual Thesaurus as part of your product or service, please contact us using this form. We also license the underlying technology, Thinkmap, that creates the Visual Thesaurus visualization. More information about Thinkmap can be found here.
