Engage Directly with Your Customers

Collaborate with Your Users
We believe that for prediction models to deliver real business value, it is essential that model authors and users collaborate directly. Therefore, collaboration is a key feature of Snap. You get to engage directly with all your customers throughout the lifecycle of the model.
Even after the model is deployed in production you can track the performance of the model to provide timely updates. Also, as data and business requirements change, you can further customize the models.
Know Who, When, How and How Much
Snap is based on a completely transparent business model. As a model creator, you will know exactly who is using your models as well as how, when and how much they are using your models. You can use the usage information to spot trends, update models and plan ahead.

FAQ
Q:
What is the process for submitting a model to Snap?

After you fill out the Model Submission form, we will contact you within 24 hours to provide instructions on how to submit the code for your model. The process is simple and straightforward but depends on the technology used to build the model and the user experience you want to provide. We will assist you through the onboarding process to ensure your model is successfully submitted to the Snap prediction catalog.

Q:
Can I register as an author even if I don't have a model to submit right now?

Absolutely yes. Register as a potential model author by filling out the Author Registration form. By registering you will be kept updated of all the latest developments of interest to you including special promotions, updates to the prediction model catalog and new services for model authors.

Q:
Can I get help in setting the monthly subscription price for the model? How do I decide how much free usage to include in the monthly subscription fees?

Pricing a model requires careful consideration; we will guide you through the process. There are two main components to the monthly subscription fees for a model:

  • The value of your IP.
  • The amount of cloud computing resources that a customer is likely to consume in a month, while using the model. This depends on the number of web service calls (API calls) to the model and the amount of data processed by the model.

Clearly, both of these vary from model to model and customer to customer. We will work with you to determine the optimal price, taking both these factors into consideration along with other factors such as the expected rate of adoption of the model and the projected cost of cloud computing over time.

Q:
Do I need to own the IP for all the models I submit to Snap?

Yes, you must own the IP for all the models you submit to Snap. You are responsible for settling any IP violation claims.

Q:
Who owns the IP of the model after I submit it to Snap?

You continue to own the IP for your model even after you submit your models to Snap.

  • Educating the user about how to use the model
