License Manager

PROKON ver. 3.0 also introduces License Manager, a new licensing option. The new architectures offers many convenient features:

  • Easy to use: Log in once on a computer, select the license(s) you want to use, and start using PROKON.
  • Automatic activation: The system automatically activates a license when your run PROKON, and releases it when you close PROKON.
  • Install anywhere: Install PROKON anywhere that users can access it: on a network server or on each user's computer, or even on a memory stick.
  • Access from anywhere: Log in and use a license from any computer that has the PROKON installed. Work at your desktop in the office, at a branch office, in the field, or at home.
  • Concurrent use: Users in your organisation can share a license. The number of simultaneous users is determined by the number of workstations contained in your license. If all workstations are in use, one user can simply close his PROKON to make the license available to another user.
  • Unobtrusive: The system works in the background to provide license access.
  • Redundant: License provisioning relies on Internet access. In the case of loss of internet connectivity, the system continues offline.
  • Access control: A user has to log in before he can use a license, preventing unauthorised use. The account administrator can register or remove license users as required.
  • Reporting: View current and historic information on license use.
