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:
We have been using SOLO Server along with Protection PLUS 4 SDK for several years. We recently upgraded to Protection PLUS 5 SDK, and the SoftwareKey support team has helped make the transition a success. With our software release date quickly approaching, things began to become a bit hectic and I had some urgent questions that needed answers. SoftwareKey support promptly supplied me with more than ample documentation, and got me on the right path to resolving my issue that night before the start of the next business day. No matter how simple (or dumb) of a question I have, they always help me towards a resolution with a prompt, cheerful, and very easy to understand response.
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.
We worked with SoftwareKey to streamline our software license distribution and cut out a very cumbersome manual process for one of our software products. It had proved tricky and no one in the past had provided a suitable solution.
The SoftwareKey team is great! They provided a robust and professional solution and their support was fantastic - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
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.
My company provides project scheduling services and software.
Customer service was absolutely the most important feature I was looking for. I knew that whichever licensing solution I selected, I would be partnered with that company for a long time! Tanner and the team at SoftwareKey were awesome! I used two hours of jump start services to get everything up and running and a third hour to review everything and to make some tweaks to my licensing strategy. And now I am up and running and couldn't be happier! And I know that the SoftwareKey team is just an email away to answer any of my questions as they come up.
SoftwareKey played a huge role in releasing my first software application. I spent months looking at licensing solutions before finally selecting SoftwareKey. Couldn't be happier!
SoftwareKey offers a complete licensing solution that is easy to implement. And if you are a coder that is not familiar with licensing, they offer great customer care to get you up and running.
In my opinion, what separates SoftwareKey from other licensing solutions that I looked at is the customer care. They are very responsive to emails and they offer an excellent jump start service to get you up and running. They want my business and they are willing to work with me and support me to keep my business. I don't just feel like another number. I feel like an important customer with SoftwareKey. Not to mention that the licensing solution is great as well!
The SoftwareKey team was willing to work with us on a couple of custom needs we had and provided great support for our licensing needs for 6+ years. We were able to go to market with confidence, knowing that our software would be protected against piracy.
Every time I raise a ticket with SoftwareKey, it gets dealt with promptly and with insight. Your team should be congratulated on such a consistently good performance. TRUST me, I deal with a number of IT support sites and yours is the best by a country mile.
It has a lot of functionality that end users want like online activation for getting up and running quickly. License sharing is also huge with end users. For us, getting data from the end user like email addresses was important. Technical support is pretty quick. License management is easy.
Your folks are very responsive... When we do need support, it’s always there. I’ve had really great responses from your technical folks, where they know what’s going on. They’re willing to take the time to simulate your customer’s problems. In seven years, I’ve contacted them maybe ten times total for minor things, never a failure or a crash.
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.
