Software License Compliance

  • Maximizing software revenues is a function of ensuring customers are compliant with your license agreements and you have mechanisms to capture revenues throughout the software lifecycle. This is a growing challenge as new technologies and customer preferences increase the demand for new license models. Getting this right enables market leading performance.

The challenges: maximize revenue

  • Can you ensure compliance with licensing agreements in a customer-friendly way to recover software overuse revenue?
  • How can you quickly adapt to and profit from the cloud, virtualization and new usage-based licensing models?
  • Can you ensure that your customers can upgrade only if they are eligible?
  • Can you electronically enable up/cross-selling to maximize customer relationships and revenue?
  • Can you easily configure your application to meet different market and geographic needs without changing code?

The solution: enable flexible licensing policies and models

  • Enable flexible monetization & licensing models-stay competitive by quickly altering monetization models across products and tailor the models for various market segments, geographies, etc.
  • Offer mature monetization models for SaaS applications-many producers are developing SaaS applications and require sophisticated, mature solutions to implement the required monetization models the market demands for such solutions (e.g., pay-for-overage, pay-for-burst, pay-for-use)
  • Ensure that you get paid for every copy of your software-prevent anti-piracy and licensing abuse across all geographies with in-product protections. Automate back-office operations that ensure license compliance to streamline internal operations (i.e., reduces the costs of audits) while ensuring all potential revenue is realized
  • Adapt to changing market conditions-the ability to sense and respond to changing market conditions is a significant competitive advantage. Doing so accurately requires keen insights into product use to ensure fact-based decisions are possible
  • Flexera Software software license compliance management solutions support the latest licensing models and the back-office automation to manage a growing software business, enabling application producers to generate more ongoing revenue from customers.
