Corporate Compliance with Licensing Requirements

Software and technology licensing fees are often tied to the number of users or devices that access an application or database. More users, or more devices, will often mean higher licensing fees.

The terms and conditions of the license agreement should specify how licensing fees work with respect to the products and programs your company uses. It’s important to remember that licensing structures and their associated fees are often the primary means by which software and technology suppliers generate revenue and get paid for their products.

But in this ever-connected world, where employees often use multiple devices (desktop/mobile/tablet) to access licensed programs, it can sometimes be difficult to match company use to license terms and make sure that the organization is not exceeding permitted users/devices specified in the license agreement.
