While you can view the full set of testimonials here, check out what some of our customers have to say specifically about the support they have received from us:
Something to Consider
Sometimes the support after the sale ends up being the most important factor in selecting a licensing provider.
Flexible and Stable for Thousands of Users
We have used Protection PLUS for many years with thousands of users, and it has been a very flexible and stable product. We recently encountered an issue requiring FIPS-compliance in our software in order to participate with some US government contracts. We contacted SoftwareKey support to inquire about a FIPS-compliant version of Protection PLUS. Even though it required a special build of their library, they researched the issue and provided a solution very quickly. This was a big deal for us to support some large companies evaluating our product.
I would really like to thank you for your great customer service and responsiveness. It's hard to see such great support and responsiveness nowadays, we really appreciate it.
Reliable service & support
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.
Support like this is hard to find.
Over my 25 years, of all the companies I have encountered, Mike and his team rank in the top five in customer support, responsiveness and help. I suppose in this day in age that is probably the highest commendation that I can give Mike and his team.
Big Value that delivers!
We spent a lot of time integrating the SoftwareKey platform with our platform, that was a really big value add that delivers productivity and value to our development community by having tight integration with our tools. Being able to work together [with SoftwareKey] like that enabled us to bring this additional value that would not have been possible otherwise.
Support is Excellent - They Genuinely Want to Help
Based on my experience, I would definitely recommend The SoftwareKey System, especially as the cost is very reasonable. From an integration viewpoint, this was straight-forward, starting from the supplied SDK, and modifying to suit. There is a lot of flexibility in the system, meaning we can consider feature-unlocking based on license type sold, while shipping one executable. That's a big win. Support is excellent ... these guys understand what support really is. They genuinely want to help.
SoftwareKey Continues to Exceed My Expectations
We've been using SoftwareKey since 2005. They have been essential to our ability to license our software, and they haven't had any issues keeping up with our growth. SoftwareKey has been incredibly responsive with my needs and requests for features. Their support is also very proactive with issues I didn't even know I needed to fix. I can't recommend them enough when it comes to a product licensing. They are there whenever we need them, and they also continue to exceed my expectations when it comes to our company's needs.
World Class Customer Support and Proven Operational Excellence
SoftwareKey has world-class customer support and proven operational excellence. They work hard to ensure complete satisfaction with every order. What convinced us was the complete array of features of SOLO Server along with their tremendous customer support that is essential to maintaining your business.
Expert, Timely Support Even with 13H Time Difference
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's service and support are truly first rate.
My company, ExhibitView Solutions, LLC, has been using the SoftwareKey System for over a year now. We used to use a very developer-intensive system for our licensing. So, when we decided to launch a completely-revamped product, I knew I needed to simplify the licensing process. After searching online, my first phone call to SoftwareKey was to discuss how their system works. I was impressed that I never felt any pressure to end the conversation during that rather long phone call. My developers were able to implement the system in under one hour after I set up a short paid one-on-one tutorial with the SoftwareKey staff.
After the initial product launch, we implemented the system into all of our 3 products. I could not be happier. I would be happy to speak with anyone about my experience and would also encourage any other software company or entrepreneur to investigate SoftwareKey. The service and support are truly first rate, and I have certainly received a great value for my money.
SoftwareKey support is second to none
I would certainly recommend the SoftwareKey System to others on the basis that SoftwareKey support is second to none. Allowing for the time difference, every e-mail I have sent – and there have been quite few – has always been answered straight away with good sound advice. Other suppliers I have dealt with sometimes take days to respond to a support call. Each support analyst is very familiar with their product and provides excellent, precise support.
The Best Investment I Have Ever Made for My Business
I just want to thank you SoftwareKey for the # 1 greatest product and customer service that you have supplied me with for the past nine years. My business could not operate without you and you take so much of the work load out of my business that you could not even imagine. SoftwareKey is like having your very own special department for your own business. SoftwareKey has the # 1 greatest one-on-one customer support that you could ever ask for. I know SoftwareKey has been the best investment I have ever made for my business and I look forward to many more years of doing business with you. Keep up the great work and as always I look forward to seeing what new feature you have for us coming in the future.
It's Nice to See Sales Come in at 3am
SoftwareKey is a one stop shop for software protection. Tenacity has been using their solutions since we opened in 2004, and I would not consider going anywhere else. I love the SoftwareKey built-in shopping cart and tools they provide to protect our software from theft. It is nice to see sales come in at 3am.
The support that these guys offer is top notch. Dealing with the lowest technician all the way to the company owner has always been a pleasure.
Invaluable Customer Support!
I wrote a custom software dialog that gives our user the ability to evaluate our software or activate it, which is an advanced application that requires API calls and custom modifications to the license to activate both licenses. The SoftwareKey API has lots of options, so I worked with Tanner to activate their software and another licensed feature needed for our custom software licensing use case. Tanner's knowledge and support was invaluable throughout the process. I don't believe I would have been able to accomplish this task in an efficient manner without him.
We Made the Correct Choice with SoftwareKey
We have been impressed with both products and services by SoftwareKey. First and foremost, it works and when we need help we get it. Dependability is second to none - of any product I have used in the last 3 decades. They are receptive to constructive criticism, and are always honest in their approach.
SoftwareKey created a custom report for us, which allows us to view our licensing base - and what version they are on - in the blink of an eye, helping us support our customers better.
We made the correct choice when we made the decision to use their technology.
Customized Integration We Couldn't Find Anywhere Else
We used to have a very cumbersome, manual process for distributing our software licenses. After trying unsuccessfully to find a suitable solution with other licensing providers, we worked with SoftwareKey to fully-automate a customized connection to our Customer Relationship Management System. Now through a simple process in our CRM, customers are immediately notified of their license credentials and can activate 24 hours a day!
The SoftwareKey team is great! They provided a robust and professional solution and their support was fantastic - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
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.
Confident in SoftwareKey's Products and Developer Team Competency
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.
They Always Help Me with a Prompt, Cheerful, and Very Easy to Understand Response
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.
Getting a real person on the phone was easy
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.
Team SoftwareKey's Support is Brilliant!
Our company develops software for risk management and quantitative risk analysis. We're very impressed with the license management and license activation features of the SoftwareKey System. Implementation is intuitive and well explained in the manual and samples. We are very happy with the SoftwareKey System's set of tools - we have relied on them for more than 10 years now and they have never failed us.
Their client support is also brilliant - always helpful and timely.
The SoftwareKey System is the complete package!
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, so I signed up for the Jump Start program.
Team SoftwareKey worked with me to get it scheduled, because my schedule has been so tight. And they were thorough. They went through all the settings and checked under the hood for me, making sure we had everything set up right.
I Feel Like an Important Customer, Not Just Another Number
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. 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 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 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 it. I feel like an important customer with SoftwareKey, not just another number. Not to mention that the licensing solution is great as well!
The SoftwareKey System and Support are Rock Solid!
We have been building data products for the financial market since 2008 - mostly for Indian stock markets.
SoftwareKey products are rock solid, you use them for your product protection, license management and it JUST WORKS! In last 10 years, thousands of trials & paid licenses were created & managed on SOLO Server Automation with no issues whatsoever. Their support is top-notch and always to the point. Their team understands what a customer is saying and on rare occasions when you need support, they are more than willing to help.
The SoftwareKey System made the license management aspect of our business so effortless that we were able to confidently make our software sales a primary focus.
Since 2008, we have immensely enjoyed the SoftwareKey System to protect and manage our software products. It is one of those rare companies which scores on every point!
SoftwareKey Was a Good Decision for Us
SoftwareKey was able to help us address a business need in a quick and professional manner. They have consistently shown us how flexible and helpful their staff is. We took the selection of a vendor very seriously and the decision has proven to be a good one.
The Jump Start Service Was Great and Helped Me Relax and Sort Things Out
We are a new startup business and will initially be selling software to the construction industry and providing consulting services.
What I really like about the SoftwareKey System is that it's quick to setup, provides full automation when using SOLO Server for customers to download and activate software instantly and it will also integrate with FastSpring for payments.
We are in the process of launching our first product. I went with the SoftwareKey System as the system looked relatively easy to implement and the fact that the client can purchase, download and activate automatically without me having to deal with that side of things is a great time saver.
I researched a lot of different products and kept coming back to SoftwareKey for the below reasons. They have a large amount of online information including online tutorials, webinars and tips, etc. which is great. As I am totally new to the licensing of software, one massive thing for me was good customer support for which I have only read good reviews about in regards to SoftwareKey. I also found their pricing to be very reasonable - especially important to me was that I did not want to be paying out huge amounts for the software automation for downloading and activating the software. This was important to me as a new start up company and not having massive cash reserves to rely on until the product gets some traction.
I used the Jump Start Service a few nights ago to make sure I was doing things correctly etc. Dan from SoftwareKey was who I dealt with and I have got to say he was great - relaxed and helped me sort things out - no worries. So yes the customer service is great. I would not hesitate for a second in recommending SoftwareKey.
Fantastic Solutions Provider Who Will Bend Over Backwards to Help
We have been able to provide entitlement management and software protection capabilities to two new .NET software products we are in the process of launching. The SoftwareKey team really puts their customers first and responds very quickly and effectively to support queries raised. Their software is also well designed and powerfully featured.
I recommend that you take advantage of their fantastic support.
Simplified Product with Excellent Support
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 Professional Services support option, they helped us with advanced licensing customization to solve some specific needs that we had.
I'm Proud to Include Their Technology in Our Products
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.
Quality product - easy to use
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!
A Powerful and Flexible Solution with Very Good Customer Service
We use Protection PLUS 5 Native along with Instant SOLO server. It's a powerful, flexible solution that gives us a lot of choice in how we would like our licenses to work, and it extends easily to a complete e-commerce solution. It's a good solution with very good customer service.
I have contacted SoftwareKey support on a broad range of issues from licensing ideas to technical Protection PLUS 5 programming problems. They always respond rapidly and knowledgeably. I have never had a box-ticking or tunnel-vision experience with them. There's a clear impression of involvement and commitment.
A++++ Support from SoftwareKey
A++++ support from SoftwareKey! First your software is easy to use and flexible enough to accommodate new and legacy products. More importantly, your support team is phenomenal. The dedication you showed to solving our unique situation was more than just appreciated, it was praised. The ultimate result was a flawless installation and activation by our customers ... a definite tribute to SoftwareKey.
Affordable Licensing Solution and a Great Support Team
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.
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's support is extremely responsive!
The SoftwareKey team has been extremely responsive in assisting us with implementation of cloud-controlled network licensing. They've answered our questions and helped with troubleshooting on multiple occasions, including outside of normal business hours.
Thank you! I'd also simply like to say you guys have been amazing, I've sent multiple tickets the past few weeks and the promptness and fullness of your replies has been brilliant!
Best IT Support by a Country Mile
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.
Getting to our first sale online was fast!
It's easy to trial, relatively low costs to get started, the support is good, the web shop being automatically set up is great. Instant SOLO Server is great, you don't have to mess around with any of that stuff. It's all taken care of.
Stellar Customer Support
Team SoftwareKey provides stellar customer support, which is fast and efficient.
The SoftwareKey Team is Always Committed to Our Success
We've been using the SoftwareKey System for several years. We engaged SoftwareKey as part of our development team to extend their standard system functionality to meet new requirements as well as design a scalable hosting platform. This project was a major success, and we were impressed with the depth and breadth of their team's technical abilities.
We later used SoftwareKey to create a subscription version of our product and provide a deep integration with our ecommerce system. They defined an elegant solution, completed their tasks quickly, and provided clear documentation. The SoftwareKey team was committed to the success of each project, leading to smooth product launches.
They Put in Overtime to Help Us with a Critical Issue
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.
