Excel Software launched QuickLicense Server 1.0 for Mac and Windows. The QuickLicense Server enables software vendors to generate a vendor-branded, floating license system for their products. Vendors enjoy royalty free, server distribution for any number of products or licenses. QuickLicense Server 1.0 is available for $995 for a Single User License on either Windows (XP and Vista) or Mac OS X (PPC and Intel). The package includes a printed and PDF User Guide with step-by-step tutorial.
A floating license system consists of a License Server, License Monitor, and Protected Applications. The License Monitor is used to securely configure the Server IP address and Port, change the number of purchased licenses, or monitor server operation. The License Server silently manages the number of allowed concurrent Protected Applications in use at a customer site.
The Windows edition of QuickLicense Server generates a License Server and License Monitor application that runs on any Windows computer with XP or later and can manage either Mac or Windows applications protected with QuickLicense. The Mac edition of QuickLicense Server generates a License Server and License Monitor application that runs on any PPC or Intel based Mac OS X computer and manages Mac or Windows Protected Applications.
QuickLicense Server also works with DocProtect to support floating licenses of protected documents including PDF files, image collections, video and audio files, Excel spreadsheets, and compiled HTML based applications.
A vendor can brand the License Server and License Monitor applications with their own file names, icons, user presented Monitor window and dialog text, custom error messages and security features. Vendors can offer and price their products with various numbers of floating licenses. Additional licenses can be securely added to the License Server running at a customer site by typing a code into the License Monitor.
QuickLicense Server requires little or no programming by software vendors. As a result, new revenue streams can quickly be added from existing Mac or Windows software products. Customers enjoy the ability to use floating licenses across all computers on their network with minimal administrative effort.
