Licensing

Software for Scheduling, Planning & Managing Resources

Our resource scheduling & planning software follows ‘concurrent user’ licensing model. Fixed number of users (depending on the number of licenses purchased) can login simultaneously and use our eResource Scheduler at any given time. This model is very efficient, as you don’t have to buy a dedicated license for every user. In practice, not all users login at the same time, in fact as a thumb rule only 40% of users will use the application at any given time.

Let’s understand this with the help of an example...

You want to buy eRS resource planner for 100 users. So instead of buying 100 licenses (one for every user), you only need to buy approx. 40 licenses. This will allow up to 40 users to simultaneously use eRS scheduling application at any given time.

Note: There are no restrictions on the number of PCs on which application can be installed or on the number of users / logins that can be created.

In the above example, you will still be able to create a separate login for every user. Also, No. of licenses are not related to the number of resources that can be managed. In fact, there is no restriction on the number of resources that can be managed using our resource management software. 

License Types

To provide operational and financial flexibility to the buying organisation, we offer the following two types of licenses.

  1. Annual License: Annual licenses are valid for a period of 365 days from the date of activation, they have to be renewed annually. Annual licenses are preferred by organisations for the following reasons...

    • License cost can be categorised as operational cost instead of capital expenditure.
    • Comparatively low start up cost.
    • Facilitates temporary increase in the number of users due to additional work.
    • Try the software in real operational environment before moving to permanent licences.
  2. Permanent License: Permanent licenses have to be bought just once. They don’t have to be renewed periodically as they don’t expire. Permanent licenses are preferred by organisation due to the following reasons...

    • Organizations may want to categorise licensing cost as capital expenditure.
    • Permanent licenses don’t have to be renewed annually.
    • Low cost in medium and long term.

Tips: Kindly consider the following before taking licensing decision...

  1. From Annual licenses you can always move to permanent licenses but permanent licenses cannot be changed to annual licenses.
  2. Permanent and Annual licenses can be applied simultaneously. E.g. You buy and activate 10 permanent licenses on 1st January 2014. Then you buy and activate 20 annual licenses on 1st July 2014. This implies the following...

  • 10 users can simultaneously login and use eResource Scheduler between 1st Jan 2014 and 30th June 2014.
  • 30 (10 +20) users can simultaneously login and use resource planner between 1st July 2014 and 30th June 2015.
  • If you choose NOT to renew your annual licenses on 30th June 2015 the again only 10 users will be able to simultaneously login and use our resource management software from 1st July 2015.
