Entitlement Management on Your Terms

Poetic gives you a configurable platform for managing entitlements from software licenses and subscriptions to support and warranty that works with what you have today. With hundreds of configurations and more than 90 integration points, Poetic fits into your existing systems and infrastructure.

Poetic Modules


Platform configuration, custom reporting product and customer masters are all part of the core module of Poetic. Included in this is a sophisticated background job processor to help ensure that your entitlement system runs smoothly even when millions of entitlements are being updated, created and managed.


If your software requires an encrypted key to work, Poetic can make those keys available directly to your customers based on your configured business rules. Simple or complex configurations, one key thousands of times or thousands of keys at one time, the Poetic activation module supports it all.

Subscription & Usage

With APIs to process payment, tax, inventory, shipping and invoicing services and a UI widget for external portal integrations, this module supports time-, count- and delivery-based subscription models and can be configured to automatically generate recurring invoices or delivery orders. 

Upgrade & Renewal

Define and execute scheduled jobs to automatically upgrade your customers entitlements, notify them, generate new keys, replace old keys and generate  fulfillment orders. This module takes enables your most sophisticated upgrade mappings and schemes.


Control access to your digital downloads with the Poetic ESD module. Limit access to users with entitlements or open access up to everyone. It supports plugin API’s to external ESD storage providers. Simplify your process for delivering digital updates or documents to your customers.

Channel Integration

Poetic was built with your channel in mind. It includes support for channel tier security roles, linking channel partners to individual entitlements and limiting channel users’ access to customer data. Each channel partner can have a customized look and feel for their portal as well.
