BASIS International Ltd. Automates Its Highly Complex Software Licensing Environment with FlexNet Licensing
"In addition to effectively eliminating revenue leakage due to piracy, FlexNet Producer Suite has allowed us to improve customer satisfaction and reduce our operating costs. For a small software producer like PMDG, all of these benefits travel straight to the bottom line."
Chief Executive Officer
"IT buyers wish to focus on allocating resources more efficiently and generating ROI, which means negotiating the most beneficial license agreements. In this environment, FlexNet Publisher can help software vendors deliver customized licensing solutions and the terms to go with them."
Software Pricing, Licensing and Delivery
"We knew we would be gaining advantages by universally automating product licensing, but we wanted to make the transformation as seamless as possible for our customers and colleagues. We felt we were well-positioned to take what Flexera Software had and integrate it with our product line and create a combined offering that would be attractive to our customers."
Senior Product Manager of Licensing Technologies
"Our customers expressed a desire to pay for the software they used in a more accurate way and wanted greater flexibility in applying licenses across the entire product suite. FlexNet is helping us to remain competitive in the market, and we can now relate and adapt to our customer's needs more quickly and effectively. As we continue to evolve our product line, we see FlexNet as a key component of keeping us agile and customer-focused."
"As Foray Technologies expands its business globally, we really need the power and flexibility that we can get only from a mature solution like FlexNet Producer Suite. There's no way we could approach its level of speed and sophistication with an internally developed solution."
Vice President of Product Development
Flexera Software's embedded software licensing and entitlement management solution enables CPU Tech to protect our intellectual property and allow the customer to operate in a classified/ secure area without internet access. We needed a solution that enables a solid revenue model without expanding our manufacturing costs."
"With Flexera Software we can now easily upgrade and downgrade our customers without deploying additional hardware as well as offer them licensing and pricing models based on roles and features."
"We are serving our customers better with faster velocity and greater agility. Flexera Software has helped Siemens Building Technologies to reduce the manufacturing complexity of a very sophisticated product line down to just a few models."
Manager, Integrated Solutions
Siemens Building Technologies
"We often talk about the virtues of demand shaping and increasing agility through postponement. But we typically think of the physical piece of equipment or machinery, not the opportunities to conduct these practices through smart management of embedded software. By using Flexera Software's software entitlement and compliance management products, however, manufacturers can reduce SKUs through flexible software configuration and provide self-service capabilities for managing software features, maintenance, and upgrades. For example, Siemens Building Technologies has reduced the number of physical models of automation systems from hundreds of SKUs to just a few. Cycle times have been cut from weeks to days with systems flexibly customized in the field."
