Licensing

Software for Scheduling, Planning & Managing Resources

Organizations use our resource scheduling software in different ways and have different licensing requirements, hence we provide flexible licensing options that allow organizations to choose number and type of licenses as per their unique mix of users & resources.

Note: ‘Users’ are individuals that can access the application using their login credentials and ‘Resources’ are ones that are being scheduled in the system. Resources can also be a user, but it’s not necessary.

We follow mix of concurrent user (per seat) and resource based licensing model and number of licenses purchased define maximum number of resources that can be scheduled (license to resource ratio is 1:15) and number of users that can login simultaneously and use eResource Scheduler at any given time. This model is extremely efficient, as organizations do not have to purchase dedicated licenses for every user or resource.

We provide progressive bulk discounts and per unit license cost goes down as the number of licenses increase.

Number of Licenses

Minimum licenses required are one fifteenth (1 / 15) of total number of resources that will be scheduled in eResource Scheduler. So for instance you need to schedule 150 resources, then minimum 10 licenses are required. 10 licenses will allow up to 10 users to login simultaneously and schedule up to 150 resources.

Note: There are no restrictions on the number of users that can be added in the system.

Recommendation: Based on our client average and industry experience, we recommend that for effective use, number of licenses should be minimum one fifteenth (1 / 15) of total number of resources OR 40% of total number of users, whichever is higher.

Example 1: If you need to schedule 120 resources and have 30 users that need access to application, then as per resources your license requirement is 120 ÷ 15 = 8 licenses and as per users your license requirement is 30 x 40% = 12 licenses. In this scenario, minimum requirement is 8 licenses, but we recommend that you opt for 12 licenses to allow up to 12 users to login simultaneously (this will also build some spare capacity and you will be able to schedule up to 180 resources if required).

Example 2: If you want to schedule 150 resources and have 20 users, then as per resources your license requirement is 150 ÷ 15 = 10 licenses and as per users your license requirement is 40% x 20 = 8 licenses. In this scenario, recommended and minimum required licenses are 10.

License Types

To provide operational and financial flexibility to the purchasing 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.

Additional Points to Consider

  1. eResource Scheduler can be installed on as many PCs as required, there is no restriction. This model is preferred by small and big organizations alike, as application can be installed on all PCs without worrying about licensing count.
  2. Unlimited users can be added in system and every user can have their individual login ID with custom access rights based on their requirements (role based rights).
  3. eResource Scheduler has absolutely no restrictions on the number of projects or bookings that can be added and scheduled.
  4. Apart from core resource scheduling features, ‘Timesheet’ and ‘Financials’ are also part of the package and you do not need to pay anything additional for these features. If you don’t want to use them, then simply turn them off
  5. eResource Scheduler is compatible with virtual environments and can also be delivered using virtualization software like Citrix XenApp etc...
