FlexNet Software Licensing Setup Made Easy

Software vendors clearly understand the strategic importance of the applications they develop–it's their business. And protecting intellectual property and properly monetizing investments requires comprehensive and flexible software licensing management solution.

Intelligent device manufacturers increasingly have to combat rapid commoditization of their hardware and are turning to software applications to create product differentiation. Software licensing solutions, through their ability to electronically control product configurations, also hold the key to configure-to-order manufacturing that reduces manufacturing complexity and leans out supply chain operations.

Flexera Software's FlexNet Licensing solution (composed of FlexNet Publisher and FlexNet Embedded) makes it easy for software vendors and intelligent device manufacturers to monetize, secure, enhance and grow market share through the flexible pricing, packaging, and licensing of applications, including intelligent devices or equipment using embedded software. FlexNet Licensing also gives organizations the power to protect IP and rein in unauthorized software use to prevent revenue loss.
