License Central is easily integrated into the ISVs’ existing business processes (such as ERP & CRM) via industry standards. CodeMeter License Central has a rich reporting capability providing ISVs with valuable business analytics. CodeMeter provides flexible licensing options such as trial periods, pay-per-use, pay-per-function, perpetual, floating users, and subscription. Licenses can be delivered and activated electronically or manually, offline or online. Licenses can be stored in node-locked containers, hardware containers and in the cloud. CodeMeter is unique in that it provides end users business enabling functionality, such as offline license transfer and license borrowing, without the need for Internet access or help desk assistance. License usage statistics enable the end-user to understand who is using the software and how often. Licenses are secured with strong encryption using AES 128, ECC and RSA 2048, allowing ISVs to protect the IP of the software and ensure license integrity. Likewise, security is important to the end user for ensuring tamper resistant applications and maintaining license compliance.
