Standalone or network licence?

A standalone (Site) licence comes with a security key (dongle) which must be connected to your computer in order to run the program.

  • Easy to move from one computer to another (simply plug dongle in)
  • Ideal for laptop computers

A wide area network (WAN) licence can be advantageous for some customers:

  • Software can be installed on as many workstations ("clients") as you wish, provided they are connected via a network
  • Licences are controlled by a centralised Licence Manager (using software supplied by Geocentrix)
  • No need to move the security key to activate the program on a particular workstation
  • Enables you to run multiple copies of the same program at the same time (provided you have the necessary number of licences)
  • Licence Manager and network security key can be kept under central control (e.g. by your IT department) to avoid potential loss
