Flexible licensing and deployment
There are three licence types available for you to choose from, with the option to share licences
between team members for increased cost-effectiveness
Simplest licence with local access to the software on one specific Windows machine only. However, the licence can periodically be transferred to another machine if required. The project data is stored as a single file which can be saved on a local memory disk or a shared location.
To contact one of our team for a quote based on your needs, with volume discount options available, see How to buy Asta Powerproject.
Customers in the UK and Ireland can purchase single user licences online here.
A cost-effective way of letting more users have access to the software by sharing licences on a server and bringing down the overall cost of purchase considerably.
The software can be installed on any number of Windows machines which all point to a central location on the internal company network where the Asta Licence Server is installed. The licence server counts how many people are using the software and ensures that this number does not exceed the licensed quantity at any one time. A concurrent licence allows multiple people to work on the same project file if that file was saved into a shared location (such as a network drive or cloud storage) but only one person would be able to edit it at any one time. Concurrent licences can also be temporarily loaned for a predetermined time to a designated machine, allowing Asta Powerproject to be used when offline from the company network.
To contact one of our team for a quote based on your needs according to the number of users you need to share access, see How to buy Asta Powerproject.
As an alternative option to outright purchase, a licence can be taken on subscription (min term 6 months). This allows an individual user to access the software via a Cloud service.
As Asta Powerproject is running in the Cloud, and not installed on to the user’s device, you can access the software from different locations based on your needs, provided you have a stable internet connection. The device needs to support Citrix which includes Windows PC, Mac, Android & iOS devices – however we do still recommend a mouse is used for interacting with Asta Powerproject.
Asta Powerproject SaaS licences are ideal therefore for Mac users, those only requiring a licence for a short project or wanting to reduce the initial licence cost and if access from multiple devices is required.
This licence option is currently only available in UK and Ireland. For pricing information call our team on 01844 261700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
