How to Setup License Statistics Free Version

Published by SPK Blog Post
on February 27, 2012

Software asset management tools, particularly license usage and monitoring software are gaining more and more interest among large corporations. It should come as no surprise since by utilizing such tools they stand to gain upwards to 10% in cost reductions and that could add up to thousands of dollars in savings! But what about the small business? They too can generate savings by monitoring  how, who, when is using their software licenses. And while there are free tools to do this, none do it better than License Statistics. Recently, X-Formation released a free version of License Statistics, which can help small businesses monitor their license usage without hitting their bottom line.

The free version of License Statistics is perfect if you’re a small to medium-sized business or even a start-up company to get a handle on your software license usage at no cost whatsoever. What’s the catch? There isn’t one. Simple download the the evaluation from their site and after 30 days the trial will convert into the free version, allowing you to monitor up to 50 users and 2 license servers. Furthermore, the free version has NO feature limitations. That’s right, it doesn’t become crippleware, it’s the same feature set that large corporations use to track thousands of users.

Last year I wrote an article detailing X-Formation’s License Statistics software, and I wanted to write a follow up to that after spending some time getting to know the software myself. I wrote up a simple setup guide to get you started in setting up your own free License Statistics server. Feel free to download the how to document How to Setup License Statistics and drop me a line and tell me what you think!
