License Management: A Key to Monetization

Complex Connections Made Simple™

Hardware companies are learning what software companies have known for years: How to monetize product features. Activation with Poetic makes it easy to lock your software (and the hardware features it may control) and provide legitimate customers with access to the products they’ve purchased when and where they need it. There’s no waiting for a customer service representative to validate compliance before delivering license keys. Customers just provide the information you configure to require and then they get their keys. It’s just that easy.

Increase Value

When you combine the power software licensing with the ease of activation provided by Poetic to your software or hardware product, you open a door to new ways to package and monetize your products.

Tired of dealing with the so-called “channel conflict?” Find out who is using your products, and if your products are locked with technical licensing, find out what features they are using. Keep track of distributor and reseller sales and activations. Imagine what Poetic can do for you.

How the activation process works

Manufacturing – Manufacturer builds products, and sends product serial numbers and order information (if available) to Poetic.

Delivery – Products ship to the end customer.

Activating – Customers set up the products on their hardware and login to Poetic where they confirm the purchase, identify products to activate, provide contact information, and, depending on your requirements, provide system information.

Unlocking – Poetic combines the all of the entitlement-related information into a message to the proper key generator (or multiple generators) and receives a key (or keys) back from the generators. Poetic sends this information to the customer so they can install the key and unlock the corresponding products and features.

Lifecycle Changes – Subsequent purchases of additional features or capacities can be added to existing installations and customers can get updated license keys directly and easily through Poetic.
