A Powerful and Flexible Solution with Very Good Customer Service

We deliver innovation to grow Australia's resource base, increase productivity and drive environmental performance.

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.

We have been working with an "offline" sales model. Once we go live with our SoftwareKey solution, we will have a system with transparent pricing that can sell our software 24 hours a day and have a customer licensed & running the software in minutes.

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.
