Cloud-Based, Cross-Platform Software Licensing

LicenseSpring overview

What is LicenseSpring?

LicenseSpring is a cross-platform cloud-based license management platform. License your software using any model, such as subscription, perpetual, trial, floating or concurrent. Works with Windows, Mac, and Linux Apps. Key features include offline activation/deactivation, node/machine and user locked, consumption-based, feature-based, and more.

LicenseSpring enables users to generate new license types, as well as configure existing ones based on multiple parameters, such as computer-locked, user-locked, and floating. The platform lets support teams automate renewals and purchases, edit key descriptions, and deactivate software trials. LicenseSpring allows administrators to create accounts, provide data access to users, and monitor session activities.

LicenseSpring integrates with third-party eCommerce platforms such as FastSpring, 2Checkout, WooCommerce, CleverBridge, and more. The platform lets employees receive real-time licensing entitlement updates via eCommerce notifications for various events such as first-time purchases or cancellations. Supervisors can create new orders, map licenses with order IDs after a transaction, and record buyer information for future reference through the dashboard.

License Spring has been great to work with. They have been very responsive to requests and issues as we got started with them. And probably most importantly, their licensing service is very reliable.

Pros
License Spring was chosen as one of our most cost effective services for handling license-key creation and registration for our product. License Spring ultimate won out as it supports FastSpring's purchase infrastructure. We got into the service rather early, and had to go a more manual REST API method because of our usage of Unity and being both Windows and Mac based. In the near future we are going to revisit our License Spring implementation and catch up with their licensing SDK improvements.

Cons
The documentation took some time to really come to an understanding with, but was directly comparable to many service's documentation. I would like to be able to delete packages from the dashboard, I made a few in error as I was learning the system (although I recognize this may not be possible by nature of the underlying database structure).

This review is from one of our first paying customers, who'se feedback has been instrumental in helping us develop a useful licensing service. We are grateful to be working with Cybernetic Entertainment, who is still providing us with valuable feedback to help make LicenseSpring even better for all of our customers.

We are working on improving our documentation and expanding it, along with exciting new features to LicenseSpring's API and platform.

Simple licensing system

The overall experience is quite positive to date we have not had any problems and we have received the required support. Perhaps in some features that we have requested to add they have had problems adding them, but in any case I recommend it.

Pros
The product, in general, is easy to use. Its implementation in the program code is quite simple.

Cons
I think that the administration interface needs improvements that allow better administration of orders and users.

Response from Cense Data


Hello, thank you for the review, and for the feedback. We are a fairly small team, and for the time being have prioritized feature development, unfortunately for some aspects to the detriment of the UI. We intend to fully overhaul the interface to make is as intuitive as possible in the upcoming months, so I encourage you to stay tuned!

Thanks again for your trust in LicenseSpring!

A Great Platform for Startups

It's been a solid experience for us. Our development pipelines integrated very easily with the frameworks from LicenseSpring, and whenever we faced a challenge, the team was always able to provide a timely solution to us. The support was the breakaway feature!

Pros
The product is incredibly consistent, delivering a reliable experience across platforms and a clear method of use whenever we need to deploy new products, regardless of how they are developed. I also appreciate the ability to tie the product back to our merchant service to have an automated pipeline from point of sale all the way to product activation.

Cons
Some of the documentation on the web portal could use an update.

Having a cloud-based licensing platform gives me more peace of mind as a software creator. I know I cannot stop all forms of piracy, but I can at least try to protect my IP with a key-based solution. It is nice to know I can login to the platform and check the status of my licenses at any time.

Pros
LicenseSpring was easy to get integrated into my software product OmniTag. The API allowed me to get up and running quickly, and because it is cloud-based, I always have control over activating / deactivating licenses.

Cons
The biggest challenge I had was integrating LicenseSpring with my online Shopify store. I had to write my own app for this. However, now that it is up and running, the process works flawlessly.
