SoftwareKey works with a wide range of businesses, budgets, licensing requirements, and staff skill levels. Frequently, we find that customers underestimate the level of detail involved in successfully launching and maintaining a licensed application throughout its lifetime.
When it comes to software licensing, as with so many things in this world, often you don’t know what you don’t know.
The correct implementation of licensing is essential to the smooth operation of your software product. By opting for the most professional and secure implementation and design, you can be confident that your investment will lead to profits.
Most customers who have simple licensing requirements, or those who have senior-level staff with licensing experience, can implement the SoftwareKey System inside of their software using our Do It Yourself approach. And you can always contact us if you get stuck: we’re happy to answer simple questions under our Standard Support plan.
BUT, remember that there can definitely be risks if you choose the Do It Yourself approach, especially if your staff is new to software licensing technology:
I wanted to make sure that everything was set up right, and that required more than your standard support. I was willing to pay for additional help, and you have the Jump Start program, and I signed up for that.
You worked with me to get it scheduled, because my schedule has been so tight. And you guys were thorough. You went through all the settings and checked under the hood for me, and made sure we had everything set up right.
I would like to thank the SoftwareKey team for the excellent service we received during the past years. I won’t hesitate to recommend your services to others!
SoftwareKey has provided IDM a 21st century software license solution that is on par with any major publisher we know of... that includes quality and excellent customer service and support. Easy to register, extensible to multi-platforms, and easy for our users to stay current!
My conclusion after researching all other available solutions on the market for desktop software license protection is that the SoftwareKey System is a great value for the features they offer.
I'm switching from another license provider I used for over 10 years (and who ceased the development of their solution). So I knew exactly what set of existing features I need - as well as more advanced options not offered by my previous provider. And preferably at a better price. SoftwareKey turned out to be the provider who satisfies all my requirements.
I also had some very specific custom requirements for different license and product types - which I wasn't sure can be easily implemented (if at all). With SoftwareKey I could achieve the flexibility I need - and even easier than I expected. Something that's not directly implemented in their system can be done through custom coding on my end.
Their SDK samples is another benefit worth mentioning. They fully cover every aspect of license management and make it easy to integrate SoftwareKey System into your software. As an additional advantage for me, their macOS samples are fully wrapped in Objective-C - which saved a great deal of time for me to implement the system in my Mac products.
When it comes to streamline the customized licensing, the SoftwareKey System is your best bet. The SDK is easy to implement and doesn't take long to customize according to our needs.
Their incredible support and commitment helped us deliver licenses to our clients and distributors across the globe with the least efforts. In fact, using the Premium Support option, they helped us with advanced licensing customization to solve some specific needs that we had.
We are very pleased with the SoftwareKey team's dedication and professionalism in resolving complicated issues. We've been using the SoftwareKey System for several years and every time when we needed support we did get it promptly and in a friendly manner. The recent release of Protection PLUS 5 SDK expands SoftwareKey System functionality to additional platforms and processor architectures, which we are planning to start using because we are confident in the company's products and developer team competency.
Do not hesitate with SoftwareKey - it's a solid company, great competitive products and outstanding customer support.
A very, very strong aspect of the company [SoftwareKey] is the customer support which follows the purchase of the product. Getting a real person on the phone was easy and the expertise I was met with was great.
We started using the SoftwareKey System in 2009 and within a few days we had implemented the full Protection + Automation bundle in our graphics products. We've never even considered another solution since. The folks at SoftwareKey have always been responsive and genuinely helpful. They truly have an entrepreneurial spirit and I'm proud to include their technology in our products.
We have a growing internet software business where customers purchase and activate software licenses online, 24 hours per day. All in all, our customers experience a slick, integrated, and automated process.
The most impressive feature of SoftwareKey is the quality and expertise of its support. As an Australian business, email was the common interaction. All questions were answered in a timely, respectful, expert and comprehensible manner whether simple or complex. As educators, these were qualities we most notice and most value.
SoftwareKey has been an important part of our business in terms of securing our intellectual property with their software protection and allowing us to implement a pay as you use business model which is a first in our industry. Their support is always responsive and when we recently had a critical issue that was preventing the release of our latest version of software, they worked over many hours to track down the problems and solve it. This was a great relief and allowed us to ship our product and keep the sales coming in.
