Excel Software’s QuickLicense 4 and Safe Activation Service 2 will be available June 1, 2009. The tools helps protect and manage any Mac or Windows software license. QuickLicense 4.0 will be available for $595 for a Single User License on Windows (XP and Vista) or Mac OS X (PPC and Intel) or $995 for both platforms. There are no per product or per license charges for the Safe Activation service — just a monthly fee based on the selected plan size and features starting at $40 per month.
QuickLicense protects any kind of software written in any programming language including desktop applications, plugins, spreadsheets, services or multimedia content. It includes an application programming interface (API) and the AddLicense tool to wrap a compiled application in a protective license with no programming required. The package includes an integrated help system, API source code examples, tutorial, step-by-step license configuration instructions, and a user manual. QuickLicense features royalty-free runtime distribution rights for any number of products or licenses on that computer platform.
QuickLicense 4 and the Safe Activation server enable a vendor to select from a wide range of license types, reduce development cost, and simplify the user experience. Configurable license types include trials, products, subscriptions, dynamic, or floating licenses. Protected applications can use automatic activation, manual activation by phone or email, activation through the default web browser, or instant activation from an application dialog using the Safe Activation server without a web browser.
With the new automated release and restore process, users can move a protected software license from one computer to another with a button click. Vendors can securely block licenses before issuing refunds, present notifications to users or manage software subscriptions with minimal effort. Vendors can offer additional paid features that can be enabled in an activated license with a couple button clicks. The Safe Activation server can be securely linked to any shopping cart to distribute Serial Numbers to customers at the time of purchase.
QuickLicense can manage customer information collected during the activation process. Customer data can be imported, searched, organized or exported to a spreadsheet or database for sales automation and customer support. The batch email capability allows messages for product announcements or periodic subscription codes to be individually customized and precisely targeted.
