The SoftwareKey Metering System helps you manage and control access to applications, log application usage, and report on application usage throughout an enterprise. You can quickly define and enforce which applications users are allowed to run both inside and outside your organization, and you can closely track and report on which applications are run by whom, and for how long.
SoftwareKey Metering™ is built on the copy protection technologies within Protection Plus™ and the mega-packed functionality in the e-business management technology of SOLO Server™. The rock solid SoftwareKey System™ has been in production use by ISV's (Independent Software Vendors) and enterprises around the globe for almost two decades. You can feel confident with this unparalleled history of reliable product performance.
With the SoftwareKey Metering System, you know that only authorized and licensed users can use desktop applications regardless of where they are run.
The application logs and reports help you make smarter software purchases in the future. Administrators can review collected data and determine who needs upgrades.
Furthermore, you can determine whether you are in compliance with your software licenses and have a clear record of compliance. The data collection will show which programs are in greater demand than others, helping you clarify the need for additional licenses and when you need to cancel others. This information saves you money by avoiding unnecessary purchases.
Integrated with VMware ThinApp™ Virtualization Software
VMware ThinApp™ users have been asking for a license management solution and this is it. The SoftwareKey Metering System functionality is injected directly into a ThinApp executable. Together, you have a solution that lets you maintain the flexibility and simplicity advantages of your ThinApp virtual applications while giving you the control you really need, especially when an application is used off premise.
"We looked at many suppliers of software management and metering solutions, and we're thrilled that Concept Software, with their robust, functionally rich, and proven solution stepped up and were willing and able to adapt and integrate their solution to fit into the ThinApp architecture." —Henrik Rosendahl, Director Application Virtualization at VMware
The SoftwareKey Metering system can work for applications distributed both inside and outside of the company network, so any which way you deploy applications you can have the management control through a central licensing server.
With virtual machines coming and going for short periods of time, it becomes increasingly difficult to ensure that an agent is installed and running to manage software licenses. SoftwareKey Metering System functionality is embedded directly into an application's executable thus removing the need for installing and maintaining agents. If the application runs, it's managed!
