Preactor Selects Flexera Software to Increase Customer Satisfaction

Replaces Legacy Solutions with Customer Friendly, Entitlement & Compliance Management Solution

Schaumburg, IL - Sep 9, 2010 - Flexera Software, the leading provider of strategic solutions for Application Usage Management to application producers and their customers, today announced that Preactor International has chosen FlexNet Publisher and FlexNet Operations to implement a more customer friendly entitlement management and compliance solution.

Preactor is the leader in Planning and Scheduling solutions providing software to a wide range of businesses across 67 countries.

Today, Preactor uses a mix of two third party licensing methods comprising SafeNet HASP HL dongles and Microcosm CopyControl software licensing. Preactor recognized some years ago that the logistics of issuing a dongle to every customer were not always practical when operating on an international scale.

Responding to customer feedback, Preactor recognized the need for a more flexible and customer friendly software licensing management solution-one that would be able to offer different software licensing models-from node-locked to concurrent and time-based.

Preactor selected Flexera Software's FlexNet Publisher and FlexNet Operations based on the company's ability to meet Preactor's internal and customer requirements, its dominant market position, and the strong reputation of the products in the market. Preactor will implement and begin rolling out FlexNet Publisher across its suite of production planning and scheduling solutions by the end of this year. Preactor will also implement FlexNet Operations, including integration with its customer relationship management ( CRM) system.

"As a rapidly growing software company, we need a software license management solution that is flexible enough to meet our customers' requirements which is always our first priority," said Adam Durling, Software Development Manager at Preactor International. "Flexera Software will provide us with a solution that would both meet our needs today and keep up with changing market trends to support our future needs as well."

FlexNet Publisher software licensing makes it easy for software vendors and high-tech manufacturers to manage, secure, enhance, and grow market share through flexible pricing, packaging, licensing, and protection of their software. FlexNet Operations, the most comprehensive entitlement management solution for managing software licenses, empowers software vendors and high-tech manufacturers to support new revenue models easily and efficiently while streamlining and automating complex back-office processes. FlexNet Publisher and FlexNet Operations are part of the FlexNet Producer Suite for Software Vendors, a comprehensive and proven Licensing, Entitlement & Compliance Management solution for software license management, electronic software delivery, software compliance and entitlement management.

"Enterprise customers are increasingly demanding a 'frictionless' experience when it comes to their most strategic assets, including software," said Randy Littleson, senior vice president of marketing at Flexera Software. "Preactor is taking the initiative to not only offer its customers a better experience, but also to improve flexibility and gain state-of-the-art software license management capabilities
