Excel Software is pleased to announce the QuickLicense system to manage the secure, flexible licensing of Windows and Macintosh software. QuickLicense is used to configure hacker-proof evaluation, lease or full licenses, then manage each license and customer data to reduce cost and increase sales. With minimal programming, developers get flexible control over how many days or executions are allowed, which computers or users can run the software, the security features that protect it and how the registration process works.
The QuickLicense application is used to configure a highly flexible licensing strategy with data stored in an encrypted ticket file. The data and runtime executable are protected from disassembly by data and logic firewalls. This royalty-free system can be applied to any consumer, business or shareware application developed in any programming language to implement trial editions, software leases, controlled feature editions or full licenses. QuickLicense offers online activation through a human controlled or automated process, passwords, license reset and controlled usage by specific computers or users. QuickLicense makes shrink-wrapped, electronic download or time-leased distribution of software quick and secure.
In addition to configuring the licensing strategy, the QuickLicense application makes it easy to store, organize and locate data from customers collected in the activation process to increase sales and reduce cost. Data can be imported or exported to any spreadsheet or database application.
The Standard edition of QuickLicense is ideal for time or execution limited trial editions, lease periods or perpetual licenses of commercial or shareware products. It provides password protection of applications and secure, royalty-free distribution of any number of products or licenses. The Professional edition has online activation and license reset features. Developers can control activated features in each license and limit access to specific machines or users, plus collect, organize, track and manage customer data without manual data entry.
The Standard edition at $195 or Professional edition at $495 is available for Windows or Macintosh. The Windows edition runs on Windows 98 through XP, while the Macintosh edition includes both OS 9 and OS X native executables. Licenses can be configured on, deployed to or managed from any supported platform. Trial downloads, site license pricing and product and ordering information can be found online.
For over a decade, Excel Software has provided Windows, Macintosh and Linux tools to thousands of developers in over 40 countries. Capabilities include system modeling & simulation, requirements management, software design, code generation, reverse engineering, bug tracking and help authoring.
