License Models

Desktop License

A desktop license provides usage to a single user on a single machine. The license issued will only function upon the machine where the software was originally installed.

The desktop license model is good if you only need a product for one person, or if you have several people who need their own dedicated copy that will be available to them at all times.

Subscription License

We offer for some of our software products the ability to purchase on a subscription basis. The payment structure allows a customer or organization to use software for a 12 month period.

The benefit of the Subscription License, it includes software support and usually provides a smaller start-up cost.

Network License

A network license is a shareable license, and can be used across multiple workstations. The number of licenses purchased determines how many concurrent users can exist. For example, if 2 network licenses are purchased for one of our desktop applications, there can be any two users executing the software at the same time. If a third user tries to use the software, it will be unavailable until one of the current users exits the program.

This license model requires one server/workstation to be responsible for running our license server. The workstations will check out a license from this server when a user launches the purchased application.

This network license model is good if you need one of our products for multiple users, especially if the individual users do not require non-stop dedicated access to the program.

Server License

A server license pertains to products being used as a server application as opposed to a desktop application.

For example, our CGM Print Server is a dedicated enterprise wide print solution that runs on one server.

Our converters and CGM HotSpotter can also be used in a server capacity. This typically applies to scenarios where our converters or HotSpotter are being integrated into a larger server process that runs batch jobs. In this scenario, we have command line versions of these products that facilitate the process.
