PROCESS

Regardless of your licensing scenario and the specific requirements, it is imperative to thoroughly consider and design all the fundamental process steps.

Licensing process

GENERATION

A license needs to be generated automatically (API) or manually (UI). 3rd party integration with back-office systems is crucial.

ACTIVATION

The generated license has to get assigned and activated. Typically, this happens when a user enters the license code in a predefined field.

RUNTIME

After activation, the device periodically synchronizes with the license server.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Unassignment and re-assignment of user and/or devices needs to be made as easy as possible.

ROLES

Managerial

Managers can not only protect the IP but also freely offer and adapt all kinds of business models such as subscriptions, pay per use, trials or lifetime licenses, since no engineering effort is required upon change.

Engineering

Engineers can concentrate on the product’s core functionality, without having to build and maintain a custom, in-house licensing solution. The REST-based SLASCONE API facilitates a seamless integration.
