Tetcos Selects RLM and Activation Pro to Streamline Licensing Operations
We at TETCOS, a niche simulation software firm, have been developing NetSim since 2004 and PhySim since 2009.
In our initial years we used an in-house dongle based license management system. This solution was highly inflexible (for example, there was no possibility of having internet based activation) and prone to communication problems between clients and the license server.
In 2007, we approached Reprise Software, and they responded immediately with a free 30 day RLM evaluation. The RLM product was easy to use with a detailed product manual and their support very fast. In addition, their pricing was affordable, so we shifted to RLM.
Over the last several years, Reprise has continuously added features to RLM which has helped us improved our product offering. Here are a few examples that have helped us meet our customer needs better:
- The internet activation feature for providing easy evaluations to our customers. Rather than physically ship we just send an FTP download along with an activation key.
- License options such as License Roaming, Dongle based licensing, Minimum license checkout time, license sharing within a machine, etc.
- A diagnostic module that logs useful information at both the client and server enabled us to quickly resolve license related issues.
Most importantly, we have not faced any license related issue in the field and Reprise has kept the price affordable. RLM, and timely support from the Reprise team, has played an important role in our success.
