As we’ve already informed you on our blog, License Activation Center (LAC) can help you accelerate the growth of your company by streamlining software license creation, distribution, and activation . And today we’d like to present 7 big reasons why LAC is the best choice for ISVs that want efficiency and flexibility with their software license management. Read on…
1. No upfront investment.
LAC eliminates installation, administration, and maintenance requirements freeing up the large IT spend that normally goes with running self-hosted solutions. Instead, software vendors can focus on what they do best (develop software) and apply resources where they can improve their company’s bottom line most. And since there is no software or hardware to install, deployment time is reduced to a matter of minutes instead of several weeks or even months. Software vendors can start benefiting from on-demand license management almost immediately.
2. License management and activation anytime and anywhere.
Because LAC is delivered as SaaS and there is no software or hardware to install, deployment time is reduced to a matter of minutes instead of several weeks or even months. This allows vendors to start benefiting from license management almost immediately and at a minimal cost. And if vendors are not happy after several months of usage, they simply do not renew their subscription (that is to say if they’re not using the free version). As a cloud-based solution run from a web interface, LAC can be accessed 24/7 from any location where there is an internet connection and a web browser. As an example, see our video on activating a license using email.
3. Fits your needs today and tomorrow.
LAC’s flexibility allows software vendors to scale up or down and use more of the software as their needs evolve without adding infrastructure. Vendors can easily introduce more effective product and pricing models with a few simple clicks that also better suit the needs of their customers. LAC gives ISVs a clear idea of what their costs will be, allowing for more precise budget forecast than in case of on-premise software.
4. Simple to use.
LAC was developed to be straightforward for both software vendors and end users. Defining products, creating license orders, overall software license management, and product activation have been stripped down to a few, easy-to-follow steps anyone can understand, even without a manual.
5. Always up-to-date and upgrade free.
Software upgrades happen dynamically and transparently with no impact on IT resources. Vendors and end users are always using the most up-to-date version of the software with access to the latest innovations and features, without the headaches of manual upgrading.
6. Measure results.
LAC provides reporting capabilities that present information on exactly how many licenses were activated, for which products, and by which users. Vendors can use this information to later improve their product portfolio and open up new customer engagement opportunities.
