Volume license manager
Volume license manager is used on site by integrators or end users to manage obtained licenses for VeriFinger 5.0. It consists of license management software and a dongle, which are used to store the number of obtained licenses. An integrator or an end-user can use the volume license manager in the following ways:
- Activating the single computer licenses. An installation license for a VeriFinger 5.0 will be activated for using on a particular computer. The license quantity in the license manager will be decreased by the amount of activated licenses.
- Managing the single computer licenses on LAN or Internet. The license manager allows to manage installation licenses for VeriFinger across the computers on LAN or Internet. The number of managed licenses is limited by the number of licenses in the license manager. No license activation is needed and the license quantity is not decreased. Once issued, the license is assigned to certain computer on the network.
- Using a license manager as a dongle. The volume license manager containing at least one license for a VeriFinger 5.0 can be used as a dongle that allows to run VeriFinger 5.0 installation on a particular computer.
