Workstation licensing for products such as X9 VIEWER or X9 QUALIFIER
All My Papers has evolved various and flexible licensing models for the deployment of the X9 VIEWER and X9 QUALIFIER applications to meet customer demand and requirements.
Because check image cash letter (ICL) files contain sensitive financial data, organizations may want to restrict some users to viewing only and permit other users to edit the check ICL file data. Access to editing may be controlled on a workstation license basis.
Organizations that use Remote Terminal Services (E.g. Remote Desktop, Citrix, etc) can install both the application and the license manager on a Remote Terminal Services server to conveniently provide functionality at any workstation from two to 62 users at a time limited only by the number of concurrent user licenses purchased.
Similar to Server Licensing described above but used when AMP applications are installed locally on workstations and licensing is provided from a server. Distributed licensing provides functionality for up to 62 users at a time limited by the number of distributed user licenses purchased.
X9 VIEWER & X9 Qualifier Licensing and Deployment Models
