Software LicensingGeocomp Consulting's software products
are generally licensed on a per user basis, and use a method of locking
to activate the application. A variety of locking methods are provided,
with a user being able to select the method that best serves
Licensing MethodsFor greatest flexibility, our products can use one of a variety of methods:
- network, or floating licenses
- demonstration or time limited trial
Network LicensingA license server is set up on a single
computer on the Local Area Network (LAN), which serves licenses to
client computers on the network. Any client computer within the LAN can
run the application as long as the license server has available
licenses to serve.
StandaloneThe application is locked to a single computer only.
DongleThe application is able to run only when the dongle
(sometimes called a license key) is plugged into the computer. This
approach offers the flexibility of being able to run the application
from any computer as long as the dongle is connected to the computer.
DemonstrationDemonstration or trial licenses are time limited
and allow the application to run for a particular time period only,
with the purpose of allowing users to evaluate the application.
Other Licensing OptionsIn addition to the available licensing models, Geocomp Consulting also offers:
- time limited licensing
- pay as you go licensing
