LM-X License Manager – Customer Case Study: SimVis
Client: SimVis GmbH
Problem: Limited licensing solutions
Solution: LM-X License Manager
SimVis GmbH, founded in 2008 and located in Vienna, Austria, is one of the first spin-offs of VRVis. A stand-alone desktop application, SimVis has been used extensively to facilitate the analysis of automotive flow simulation data, and is also used to evaluate medical, meteorological, climatic, and oil industry data.
SimVis started out licensing their stand-alone desktop application, using their own in-house solution. As their customer base grew, they quickly found that their in-house solution was not going to be adequate for many of its customers.
Mr. Wolfgang Freiler of SimVis explained, “At SimVis, we were facing the limits of our existing in-house licensing solution, since customers were increasingly asking for more flexible licensing models, such as floating licenses.”
How SimVis Approached the Problem
SimVis set out on a quest to find a solution that would work for their team and their customers’ growing needs. After comparing various solutions, LM-X License Manager came out on top.
“We conducted an evaluation of the existing license management solutions on the market and finally decided to switch to X-Formation’s LM-X License Manager,” described Freiler.
One of their highest points of praise for LM-X was its straightforward implementation. “During the evaluation period, we were surprised at how easy it was to integrate LM-X License Manager into our software,” Mr. Freiler said.
Not only was LM-X easy to work with, but they were impressed with the helpfulness, expertise, and response time of X-Formation’s support team. “When we were stuck, the helpful support team provided us with a solution very quickly,” praised Freiler.
What It’s Like Now
SimVis was able to get up and running quickly with new licensing options that not only better met their existing customers’ needs, but opened up new opportunities for sales to customers who demand more flexible license models. With LM-X, SimVis got a license management solution with extensive features, flexibility, and ease of use that they had been searching for.
For SimVis and so many other successful customers, LM-X has proven to be an optimal licensing solution for cross-platform software products. The positive feedback we get from both new and long-time users consistently reinforces that even the most demanding of our customers are happy with the solution LM-X provides.
