Which license is the right one?

There are two different license models available:

Single User License

What is it?

  • A Single User License authorizes a single person for using our software on one computer

Ideal for

  • Single users
  • small or medium-sized organizations
  • all, who set value on permanent offline using

What has to be considered?

  • default for 1 to 49 subscriptions
  • activation per computer

Advantages

  • unlimited offline using within subscription period
    (after activation no internet connection necessary anymore)

Concurrent User License

What is it?

  • A Concurrent User License is a kind of "floating" license and authorizes - depending on the number of instances - one or several persons to use our software flexibly on different computers
  • the number of instances controls how many persons can use the software simultaneously

Important:

For using Concurrent User Licenses you need the installation of a license server.

Ideal for

  • medium-sized or big organizations
  • all, who set value on flexible using
  • all, who work with Terminal Server

Understand the principle

With Concurrent User Licenses you have the opportunity to use axesPDF software from different computers flexibly.

Required is:

  • each client has access to the license server or
  • all clients are connected within a common network or
  • there is at least a bridge between the corresponding networks.

The number of available Concurrent User Licenses defines, how many users can access the corresponding axesPDF software simultaneously. Normally one license is taken from the license pool when starting an axesPDF program.

Important:

In case of axesPDF for Word it has to be considered that after starting Microsoft Word with installed axesPDF for Word, one license will be assigned. After closing Microsoft Word the axesPDF for Word license is available for other users again.

To use Concurrent User Licenses, a server with Sentinel License Manager program is necessary. The server can be operated with Windows Server or Windows.

What has to be considered?

  • default in case of 50 ore more subscriptions
  • in case of less than 50 subscriptions: available for extra charge
  • permanent connection to license server necessary
  • temporary offline using possible ("detaching")
  • floating license: mapped to a process at a time ("concurrent" function):
    • starting Microsoft Word with installed axesPDF for Word or
    • starting axesPDF QuickFix

Advantages

  • simple, central activation via license server
  • useable for unlimited number of computers in a common network
  • extented usage rights: possible to use in virtual environments or remote access possible
