Electronic Software Delivery

  • Giving your customers easy, self-service access to your products has become table stakes — yet many application producers utilize homegrown solutions that lack sufficient scalability and ties to entitlements that jeopardize revenues. State-of-the-art capabilities reduce costs and ensure revenue recognition.

The challenges: eliminate costs and ensure revenue

  • How can you eliminate significant fulfillment costs for new products and updates?
  • How can you provide your global customers consistently fast, reliable and self-service access to your products?
  • Can you ensure that only customers entitled to an upgrade have access to it and then automatically deliver updates?
  • How can you ensure that you are reliably delivering the latest security patch to all customers?
  • How do you ensure that you are complying with export compliance requirements to avoid getting fined?

The solution: automate entitlement-based software delivery

As the market leader in entitlement management, Flexera Software enables application producers to reduce fulfillment costs, streamline export compliance and protect maintenance revenues. Producers are able to:

  • Eliminate physical fulfillment costs—go green and save up to 3-4% of product revenues by switching to electronic software delivery
  • Protect maintenance and subscription revenues—ensure only customers current on maintenance or on a subscription plan are able to download software, proactively track maintenance expirations to improve renewals and increase cross/up-sell revenues by reporting on customer download activity by product version
  • Improve customer satisfaction—enable 24x7 self-service for customers to download software when they want it while leveraging high performance delivery options for fast download of large files
  • Automate update delivery—proactively push updates and bug & security patches to all customers to protect their software and reduce support costs
  • Ensure export compliance—automate compliance with complex software export regulations, revenue recognition, and data privacy while leveraging tax savings by delivering software from tax-advantaged locations
  • Flexera Software electronic software delivery solutions are SAS-70 certified, proven solutions that automate entitlement-based delivery of software to customers, enabling application producers to go green, eliminate costs and accelerate export compliant revenue recognition while helping their customers get software where and when needed.

Virtualization, License Compliance and the Application Producer/Enterprise Relationship
The relationship between software vendors and intelligent device manufacturers ("application producers") and their customers ("enterprises") has been a complicated one. On the one hand, application producers develop mission-critical applications critical to every facet of an enterprise's operations. Without software, the remarkable efficiency and cost reductions organizations have been able to achieve in recent decades simply wouldn’t be possible.

This white paper examines the pricing and licensing strategies that application producers have put into place and are planning, and the impact that this will have on the often--fraught application producer/enterprise relationship. Download Infographic
