Choosing a Type of License

So Much to Choose From

We offer many types of licenses; each has differ terms available. This can cause some confusion. So, which license is right for your company or situation?

Factors to Consider

  • Do you need to use the software on virtual machines or terminal servers?
    • Consider concurrent licenses, floating licenses or a company wide license.
  • Do you have a tech that can setup and maintain a license server?
    • A license server is required for our floating licenses or concurrent licenses, or networked licenses.
    • The license server is a world class solution, but it requires some setup.
  • Is ease of use important to you?
    • Perhaps a company wide license is proper for you.
    • Though all our options are great, this would offer you the most flexibility in setup and distribution.
