SoftwareKey System Purchasing Options

The SoftwareKey System is comprised of:

  • Protection (licensing client) - This component is included in your software, which is distributed to customers.   It controls access to your software.
  • Automation (licensing server/service) - The protection component connects to a central licensing server on the web to automatically activate and validate licenses throughout the lifetime of the license.

New customers can choose between Protection Only or our most popular combination of Protection + Automation. Existing Protection customers can add Automation at any time.

Most customers use the Protection + Automation bundle below using our shared server infrastructure.   Enterprise customers wanting information on our Dedicated and Self-Hosted options can contact us.

Automation = faster service = increased sales!

When many new users are downloading the software, it's difficult to manually authorize each new installation or renewal without consuming resources (people's time) or do it in a timely manner. SoftwareKey Automation gives people the opportunity to buy the product or use it as software as a service and have it authorized immediately and automatically.

Above and Beyond the Typical Level of Support

I just wanted to take the time to write this email and indicate my high level of satisfaction with the support that your team has provided throughout the trial, purchase, and setup of your software products. The support team is friendly, listens to my questions, knows your products inside and out, and conduct themselves in a manner that is highly conducive to simply getting things done. It is quite clear that they go above and beyond the typical level of support that is expected, and I hope that it is well-recognized that this is essential to procuring new business and referrals.
