OpenAI is launching an enterprise version of ChatGPT in a move that competes with partner Microsoft.

In a blog post, OpenAI said it will launch ChatGPT Enterprise with the aim of signing up as many corporate customers as possible. ChatGPT Enterprise will provide faster processing and security and privacy controls for corporate data.

The move is notable given Microsoft has laid out plans to commercialize OpenAI's ChatGPT. OpenAI has plans to be an ingredient brand while growing out its own customer base. Salesforce is another example of a company that has built out similar services and added GPT to its branding mix.

Pricing for ChatGPT wasn't disclosed. OpenAI has a contact sales button without detail. OpenAI argues that it’s seen ChatGPT adopted in more than 80% of the Fortune 500 companies. These early users would be under individual ChatGPT Plus plans, which run you $20 a month, or free plans.

To woo enterprises, OpenAI made the following points about ChatGPT Enterprise:

  • OpenAI won't train models on your business data, conversations or usage.
  • ChatGPT Enterprise is SOC 2 compliant, and conversations are encrypted.
  • The service provides a new admin console to manage users.
  • ChatGPT Enterprise includes unlimited usages of GPT-4, 32k context, processing of larger inputs and files and advanced data analysis.
  • Custom ChatGPT instances are available with templates for chat and workflows. Pricing will also include free credits to use OpenAI's APIs.

OpenAI added that it has more features on the roadmap including customization tools with company data, a self-serve ChatGPT Business offering for small teams, power tools and functions for roles within a company.
