We sell our software products under the terms of a perpetual license - meaning you
pay a one-time payment to own the rights to use the then-current version of our
software forever. Unlike ASP, SaaS, or Web-based services, you don’t pay
any monthly or subscription fee to use the software.
Like many other commercial desktop applications, our software is licensed on a per-device
(computer) basis. Per-device licensing means a valid license must be obtained for
each device on or from which the software is installed, used, or accessed. For example,
you have a total of 30 Windows-based desktops in your company, but you only want
the 3 desktops in your scheduling department to be able to install and run our Snap
Schedule software. The schedulers who use these 3 desktops work in three eight-hour
shifts to schedule 185 employees, so the desktops are shared by 9 schedulers. In
this scenario, you will need to acquire 3 Snap Schedule licenses—one for each desktop.
Note that the number of desktops is the determining factor, not the number
of schedulers or employees.
