Licensing

Note:

Licensing Module under General Section will only be visible, if License Key is activated for your PaperSave Application Server.

 

A software license manager is a license management tool used by end-user organizations to control where and how software products are able to run in order to enforce and ensure compliance with software licenses. It is a legally binding agreement that specifies the terms of use for an application and defines the rights of PaperSave and of the end-user. There are various types of Software Licensing available in the industry, amongst which, PaperSave uses Concurrent Licensing technique to control the software usage.

 

Concurrent licenses permits you to use the software onto multiple machines as long as the number of computers using the software at the same time does not exceed the number of licenses which you have purchased. Concurrent use licenses prevents the number of licenses from being exceeded.

 

Under General Section, of PaperSave Settings, you should see a module named Licensing which gives you the ability to track total no. of Concurrent Licenses purchased by you. PaperSave offers a User Type named PaperSave Full User that consists of various PaperSave Entry Points.
