Reprise License Manager Wins the SourceForge Spring 2022 Leader Award

Reprise License Manager (RLM), which won the Spring Leader Award from SourceForge in March 2021, has been named a winner in Spring 2022.


SourceForge is the world’s largest software and services review and comparison website. This award recognizes exceptional companies and products.


The Spring 2022 Leader award winners must receive enough high-rated user reviews to rank them in the top 5% of favorably reviewed products on SourceForge.


“We are delighted to receive this honor again,” said Reprise President Alan Klug. “We believe in RLM and love that our customers do too. RLM improves the whole licensing process by providing reliable and flexible solutions. ”


Since 2006, RLM has offered numerous licensing models and flexible pricing that appeals to software publishers of all sizes. Though RLM is a robust software license manager, it is also easy to use. Reprise delivers solutions that can help increase revenue and attract new customers.


Klug adds, “Without users taking the time to provide overwhelmingly positive feedback on SourceForge, we wouldn’t have been granted this award. It reminds us how important it is to listen to customers and continuously provide them with best-in-class software and industry-leading support.”

Activation Pro

What’s the difference?

Reprise License Manager (RLM)

Software License Manager

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

As a Software publisher, you integrate RLM into your product, and RLM keeps track at runtime of who is using the licenses of your software.

RLM can do this entirely within the client library (linked into your application), or, more commonly, your application makes a request of the RLM Lincese Server to check out a license.

The lincese server runs either on your customers network, or in the cloud if you are using our RLMCloud™ service.

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

RLM Activation Pro

Software Activation Manager

Activation Pro is
used once when your customer purchases your software in order to retrieve the license which is specific to that customer.

Software Activation’s purpose in life is to get the licenses for your product to your customers with a minimum of fuss.

Activation Pro also has a server component wich we call the activation server.

Your application contacts the activation server and supplies a short text activation key, and in exchange, the activation server returns the license which enables your product.

Generally, this is done once, right after your customer purchases your software, not every time your software is invoked.
