License Management with StartCenter

When the application starts, an availability check is carried out for the selected license configuration in order to prevent unnecessary restarts due to licenses that cannot be selected and thus save time.

With the help of StartCenter, over-licensing and delays in product development due to license bottlenecks can be avoided.
This is how you keep an eye on your costs!

License usage analyzes for specific users or user groups – such as project teams, locations or self-defined groups – also enable concrete cost allocations.
