A network licence allows a customer to install DesignBuilder licence server software on a single server machine. This machine then distributes module seat licences to the various computers on a shared network. Licencing of off-site machines is possible using VPN and similar technology, and is allowed by the licence agreement.
Pricing is "per seat" with the exception of the site network licence for the server. For further information and pricing, please contact our sales department -
