Fits all of our needs

We wanted to make our licensing solution unobtrusive to the customers who actually pay us, while simultaneously making it difficult for those who would seek to steal the software.

We grew through several versions of our software. Protection PLUS 5 SDK fit with our needs to make things more current and professional. We have a very nice Protection PLUS 5 SDK implementation now providing customers convenient online activation, and backup processes to solve any problems they may encounter. People like solving their own problems.

We Have Been a Protection PLUS User for 20 Years!

We are test specialists in leadership selection & development, hiring, career testing, and clinical & personality testing.

We have been a Protection PLUS user for 20 years. We have hundreds of software installations that rely on SoftwareKey's protection.

We needed a solution that didn't require USB devices, was resistant to tampering but also resistant to protection failures, in order to reduce our support costs and increase customer satisfaction.

We particularly like the simple integration into our Windows software. We needed to be able to track licenses and pay-per-use to computers not on public networks. As Windows has evolved, so has the Protection PLUS product.

We're looking forward to upgrading to Protection PLUS 5 SDK and taking advantage of network licensing and the .NET model.

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.

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.

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.

Customization Will Significantly Increase Our License Volume

Thank you for providing us a customized download page for our software. It will allow us to send multiple files to our customers and also allow us to embed the license information in the file that is downloaded. We expect to significantly increase the number of licenses issued in the near future and appreciate your stable license management system.

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.

Stopped License Sharing

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.

I Feel Like an Important Customer, Not Just Another Number

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!
