Unwavering Licensing Confidence in Nearly 1 Million Units per Year

I have overseen myriad product launches, and each time I have unwavering confidence in the licensing and distribution strategy that always has SoftwareKey at its center. Our company distributes nearly 1 million units of both downloadable and physical software products, with many sold through retail stores. The ability to offer subscriptions makes it easy to capture renewal revenue and the copy protection is critical for our products.

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.

With SoftwareKey My Application is Fully Protected

Our company develops educational applications that are meant for tertiary institutions by employing the concept of gamification.

I have been using Protection PLUS since 2014 and implemented it quickly by following well-written tutorials in the documentation. I am a bit more at ease when distributing my application to individuals whom I don't fully know. It's simply so because I believe with SoftwareKey my application is fully protected. I hope to upgrade to SOLO Server someday when my application hopefully grows.

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.

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.

Successful Migration and Savings from Hardware Keys (Dongles)

We've been using software licensing technology since 1988. There are many very expensive systems out there that deliver far less than SoftwareKey. Protection PLUS is easier to use than the hardware keys we'd used for decades, implementation is faster, more key-based options can be stored, and it's less expensive on an annual basis than both hardware keys and many competitive software solutions we investigated.

Licensing is an unfortunate necessity to prevent theft. This solution saves significant time that otherwise might be spent programming individual hardware keys (dongles), and the responsibility of key programming has been off-loaded to accounting personnel rather than taking up time for engineering personnel.

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.

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.

Integral in Getting Our Brand Off the Ground

SoftwareKey has been integral in getting our brand off the ground by creating a centralized portal for administrators and customers to access products, license keys, and activations. The SoftwareKey System was simple to integrate with our existing products.
