My probably-biased point of view (as a bioinformatician) is that even with the original CLC prices, a company would get more benefit out of hiring a dedicated bioinformatician than paying for CLC.

Someone needs to interpret the results produced by CLC, and the skill/training gap between result interpretation and result generation from [much] cheaper software is quite small. If a bit of hand-holding is needed, I'd recommend Geneious because it has a much more open community and plugin system.
