Real World Software Licensing

    To broaden your understanding of the licensing process and show options that may fit your specific needs, consider a real world example. TradeTek is a takeoff and estimating software product for the construction industry. A small general contactor or sub-contactor may work alone from their home office.

    A large builder or lumber yard may have multiple employees working full time on construction estimates. Employees may work from the office, home or job site using Mac or Windows computers. From the job site, a user may review plans, check quantities or show reports to clients using remote desktop from an iPad or Android device. Larger companies may install TradeTek and job files on each user's local computer while others remote desktop into a local server or virtual machine running in a cloud service like Azure or AWS.

    In an organization with hundreds or thousands of employees, people come and go, change roles or computers get replaced. The licensing system must fit the needs of the applications, users and managers.
