QW License Server

What is Concurrent Licensing?

Concurrent licensing allows the installation of Quality Window Software on an unlimited number of workstations within an organization while managing a limited number of licenses or “seats.” This system is ideal for environments such as manufacturing where software needs can fluctuate dynamically, ensuring that only a specified number of users can access the software at one time.
