Over the last 10+ years we have worked with everyone from the one-man start-ups to the multi-billion dollar Fortune 500 corporations - selling and managing licenses around the world.
We created the Nitro-LM licensing service because we were frustrated by the outrageous fees and approaches to licensing our own software by third-party licensing companies. Our frustration was found in a sincere lack of third-party features, overall flexibility, security and a "surprise" cost of ownership. To make things worse, we were often shocked with pricing based on a "percentage" of our company's revenue.
Basically, third-party software licensing companies saw themselves as nothing more than a "brick" in the "wall" that is your software, not the "foundation" upon which to build a revenue stream that software companies need and want. We saw things differently back then, and still do to this day relative to our competitors.
We don't do business with companies that simply "want to sell" software, or are looking to "license software" for as cheap as possible (e.g. the $0.02 / forever-license). If you view software as something that is sold once and is never paid for again (or paid for when the customer is finally convinced to upgrade years later), our licensing service is NOT for you... Thanks for stopping by, we wish you luck with that 100-yd-dash, flash-in-the-pan, popcorn-kernel-explosion business model that you have chosen!
There are no "participation trophies" in the software business. The old-school measures of "number of units sold" is soooo 1990. Today's metrics are all about "stablity" of your "recurring revenue stream." Specifically, can you stay ahead of your competitors, keep customers attracted, and keep them paying for the use of your software over time?!
If you understand that your business is about running a "marathon", and not a "100-yd-dash" from sale-to-sale, and that your true costs of developing and supporting software (all that necessary infrastructure, people and resources) need to be paid for on a regular basis to continue to deliver and improve your benefits to your customers... then we are already on the same page! (please ... keep reading)
The rest of this site will speak to your soul - we are by definition kindred spirits and can do wonderful things together. We developed most of our fuctionality because we were pissed-off by what the industry was not doing. Many of the improvements we have made since we started were because our customers were equally as frustrated with their existing third-party licensing solutions and wanted to stop losing time and money. As a result, we have focused on guiding our customers away from viewing us as a "tool" to more of a revenue generating interconnected "seamless experience" for you and your customers.
If you have any questions, contact us directly. We look forward to working with you.
