How are Simple Software products licensed?
All Simple Software products are licensed with three different license types:
- Workstation – Per computer license, with one license needed for each computer that runs the software.
- Concurrent – Shared license that can be installed on any number of computers, but only one computer at a time per license can run the software at a time.
- Subscription – Monthly cost with a 6 month minimum that uses the Concurrent license.
The demo version is “activated” online using a serial number generated for your organization. All licenses purchased for each application can be activated with the same serial or separate serials upon request. If there isn't an internet connection or security blocks connection to the SimpleIndex license server and offline activation can be done.
The license can be transferred to another PC. Check out the FAQ for Activating and Transferring licenses for further details.
A Server Processing Add-on license is required when SimpleIndex is need to run automatically as a background process using the Windows Service. The Server Processing Add-on license can be added to any version of SimpleIndex to enable 1 million pages per year of unattended server processing. Additional server add-ons can be activated to add increments of 1M pages per year. There is also an Advanced Barcode Server Add-on license for running SimpleIndex as a Windows Service with an unlimited page count only for recognizing barcodes.
