Web-based SOAP API
LAC provides a web-based SOAP API that can be used across many programming languages and facilitates communication between LAC and other applications.
You can use the API for license administration—including product, customer and license template management—and to automate communication with customers, such as sending email notifications for software expiration. The API also lets you automate license activation for end users.
LAC + LM-X License Manager
Enjoy simplified license management and gain full control over your software licensing by combining LAC with LM-X License Manager for an end-to-end solution that caters to all your software licensing needs.
LM-X License Manager offers superior capabilities for licensing and protecting your software. LAC brings you a simple yet powerful license fulfillment system.Team the two products together, and you’ve got a dynamic duo that delivers a complete license management solution, giving you all the flexibility and security you demand for licensing your software plus all the convenience and automation you need for deploying your software to end-users.
Provide more convenience to your end users by letting them use a single activation key to lock their licenses to multiple machines. Instead of requiring separate activation keys for each HostID licenses will be locked to, bulk licensing lets end users use a single activation key to lock the licenses to multiple machines.
Each license under the bulk license order is identified by a unique combination of the activation key and HostID. Having fewer keys to manage saves your end users time and hassle when activating their licenses.
Efficient License Management
With its intuitive user interface that allows for quick and efficient license management, LAC provides positive and surprisingly easy software experience.
LAC was developed to be effortless for both software vendors and end users. Defining products, creating license orders, overall software license management, and product activation have been encapsulated in easy-to-follow steps anyone can understand.
License Manager Support
LAC natively supports LM-X License Manager, but can also be used with other 3rd-party licensing systems such as Reprise License Manager (RLM), and FlexNet Publisher, providing more flexibility and allowing you to better serve your customers regardless of the software they’re using.
Keep customer data up-to-date by synchronizing Customer and Contact data between LAC and SalesForce. Upon SalesForce.com synchronization, every Customer object in LAC is given a custom tag that stores the customer’s SalesForce.com account ID.
Contacts are matched based on email address. This useful feature lets you boost your business performance, better manage interactions with customers and make informed business decisions. All data is protected, upgrades are automatic, and managing products and customers is done with ease, increasing your productivity.
With LAC, you can define one or more templates for each product that lets you save time by reusing settings when creating license orders. For example, you may want to sell your products to small businesses on different conditions than when you sell them to corporate ones. Custom templates let you include different expiration terms and features to make customized templates for each of these scenarios, eliminating the need to specify the details for each license you create.
Simply select the appropriate template to apply all the default conditions to the license order automatically.Each template includes default settings for included features, the type of HostID locking to use, the license type, and more. You can override any of these default settings when creating license orders.
Stay on top of your customer needs and notify customers about important information regarding their license usage.
Customizable event triggers automatically notify you and your end users about important license information, so your customers know when they’re running out of available license activations, their license maintenance is nearing expiration, or their licenses are nearing expiration.
Custom tags let you add fields to LAC that will be available for use in both the web-based UI and the LAC SOAP API.
For example, you might like to track the technical support level that a customer purchased when adding your customers to LAC. To do this, you would add a custom tag called, for example, “Support Plan.” You can use the Support Plan field to enter the customer’s level of support; for example, Bronze, Silver or Gold.
Custom tags are most powerful when used in API to locate and manipulate objects based on their associated data. For example, using our “Support Plan” example, you can use the API to get a list of all your customers that have Gold level of support.
