Software vendors can protect their investment and increase sales by ensuring only licensed customers can use their Mac OS X and Windows products. QuickLicense can protect any software application written in any programming language including desktop applications, plugins, spreadsheets or multi-media content. The product includes an API for complete developer control and the AddLicense tool to wrap compiled applications within a protective license with no programming required.

QuickLicense 3.0 empowers the developer to configure licenses for perpetual applications, limited trial editions or software subscriptions that support a variety of human controlled or web automated activation procedures. Unicode text enables the developer to customize the user interface to support any language. An application can even replace the runtime Activation dialog. A vendor can securely blocked or unblocked an activated license. Individual features can be securely enabled when purchased by a customer.

AddLicense provides drag and drop license protection. The new version adds powerful language customization features, supports multimedia applications that depend on external files and automates the evaluation, purchase and activation process with the new Try, Buy and Register option.

A user can activate and use a protected application on any computer even without an Internet connection. Activation codes provided by phone, email or instant web page can work with any download or retail distribution process. Software activation can be automated with the Safe Activation Service, WebActivation hosted on a vendor’s web server or through an Activation Request web form generated from QuickLicense.

QuickLicense can manage customer information collected during the activation process. Customer data can be imported, searched, organized or exported to a spreadsheet, database or to MarketBuddy for sales automation and customer support. The batch email capability allows messages for product announcements or periodic subscription codes to be individually customized and precisely targeted.

QuickLicense 3.0 is $595 for a Single User License on Windows (XP and Vista) or Mac OS X (PPC and Intel) or $995 for both platforms. The package includes an integrated help system, API source code examples, tutorial, PDF and printed manual. A QuickLicense purchase includes royalty-free runtime distribution rights for any number of products or licenses on that computer platform. The company web site includes demonstration videos, detailed product information and secure online ordering.
