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.
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 machine 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 licenced 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.
Asta Licence Manager
The concurrent licensing model is extremely flexible in that licences can be loaned to remote users for periods of time if required using Asta Licence Manager.
Asta Licence Manager (ALM) allows you to streamline the management and distribution of your Asta Powerproject network licences from one easy-to-use application. Designed to help you manage multiple concurrent licences across your network, it provides your office-based staff, mobile and home-based staff with a flexible way of accessing Asta Powerproject wherever they are.
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. This licence option is currently only available in UK and Ireland.
Asta Powerproject Enterprise
With Asta Powerproject Enterprise, local and server licence options are available with fully collaborative access to a shared database of project data. This provides all users with shared real-time access to projects, sharing of project resources, integration with other business critical systems and visibility of all projects.
