Our self-assessment questionnaire is used by prospective and existing customers to determine their position on our pricing matrix, ensuring the costs charged for our BCS solution fairly reflect each organization’s usage profile.
To do this, the questionnaire gathers three key pieces of information:
This key information is determined from your answers to several multiple-choice questions.
Organizations wishing to sign up to a paid BCS usage agreement need to complete the questionnaire as a first step.
If you wish to test BCS prior to purchase, you should complete a Test Usage Key Request, and complete a questionnaire at a later point in time.
Organizations with a productive BCS agreement are required to perform an annual appraisal of their previous year’s questionnaire results, in order to renew their BCS usage agreement (ensuring provision of usage keys and support).
Organizations testing BCS and wishing to enter a productive BCS agreement must complete the questionnaire as a first step.
It is vital that the information provided by you in the questionnaire is accurate, as this information is used as the key input for commencing or continuing a legally binding agreement between your organization and QuantityWare.
To assist you with the completion of the questionnaire, we provide an “offline” copy of the questionnaire, which you may use to discuss your organization’s answers with your colleagues.
If required, please download a copy of the offline Usage Questionnaire PDF.
The self-assessment questionnaire is available on the QuantityWare Service Portal; accessed as follows:
Prior answering the questions, we require you to enter your organization details, your contact details and the detail of the manager who will sign-off the completed questionnaire.
This is required so that we can get in touch with you to provide a quote, along with test usage keys for your selected BCS software if required.
We require a “manager / sign-off” contact to be specified, as they will provide digital sign-off for the completed questionnaire prior to processing by QuantityWare. If you have the authority to fulfil this function, you may specify your own details as the “manager / sign-off” contact.
Each of the questions are multiple-choice and must be answered for each product selected (where applicable).
A question will often be preceded with background information that explains the reason for the question, with links to information that will help you provide an accurate answer:
The questions are split into three categories, in the following order:

Any discounts are displayed, along with an explanation behind the discount logic.
Below the list of selected products is a total price. Please note that all prices displayed are Net (i.e. excluding all taxes, duties, tariffs etc.) and may be subject to change.
A “Condensate Add-On” may be required if you specify that your organization processes “Condensate” via your Gas operations.
This is because Condensate calculations require the use of a petroleum quantity conversion standard, which is not supported by BCG or CTG.
Our “Condensate Add-On” allows you to perform productive condensate calculations (BCG) or validate legacy calculations (CTG), without requiring the full BCP or CTP product, and is provided at a discounted rate.
The add-on is only required if one of the following is true:
