Pros: - Easy to use

- Cross platform (we're currently using it for .NET but we know it'll work on Android and OS X when we get there)

- Extensive API means that we are able to automate pretty much any task

- There are so many options in QLM that we have not explored yet, I know we're still just scratching the surface!

Cons: Documentation could be improved.

Overall: QLM looks at all aspects of the software licensing process, it does not focus only on the generation and validation of codes, it is instrumental in product upgrades and especially in controlling the maintenance plan.

We've searched every license managers in the market, and QLM was the best benefit-cost ratio we've found.

The support we've received was the most responsive and dependable technical support we've ever come across.

Pros: Very reliable, easy to use for Excel/VBA applications.

Cons: When the application is open hasn't been used for a period of time it's a bit slow to come up when activated. I would consider this very minor overall.

Overall: Very good overall experience over 10 years of use. When I need support it is really responsive.

Pros: Very easy to manage licensing process with customers.

Easy to define products and integrate QLM into applications.

Cons: The supplier updates the software rather frequently. Slowing down the updates - say to a twice or once a month frequency would be helpful.

Overall: Before QLM, we were not able to control the number of installs on a customer's network. With QLM, the licensing process is very well controlled and helps to ensure our customers don't over extend their number of licenses.

Pros: Very user friendly. the steps are very easy to follow. There are also examples of how to insert the license code into your own software code in order for it to work.

Nice user interface. again straight forward until you need to insert the license code into your own code.

But once it is set up, you don't really need to go back and redo all the work. it becomes very straight forward.

they've added a feature to check if the user of my software is offline or not and how I want it to be handled. Nice feature.

Cons: It took some time to make it work with my applications and to make it compatible. there is a learning curve but in the end it is worth it because once it is setup for one application it is a simple copy and paste of code to make work for any other application.

When i bought it there was no network license. I don't know if that feature was added later.

Pros: - great for creating and exporting key codes quickly

- great to have extra logins that allow you to separate from different users

- the product does whats is says it does

- being able to easily email out from the system

Cons: - the crazy long keycodes, the customers done enjoy typing that in and n o option to have a shorter one

- when you try to look something up you have to be super fast in typing what you want before it refreshes on you.

- you don't get to give a drop option on how many customers you have on screen instead looking through page after page to find the customer if you are unsure on what email etc they used

Pros: The software is fairly easy to integrate and the license manager is robust and easy to use. The software has been completely reliable and has allowed me to sell my application through my own storefront. The QLM integrates very nicely with Fastspring so the whole process is automated.

Cons: In order to get everything working, I had to modify the QLM code to handle some additional fields (is_user and is_pwd) so that my web server worked correctly. This was the only non-obvious thing I had to figure out.

Overall: I am currently using QLM to license an Android application I sell through my Fastspring store. This helps prevent piracy and provides a great alternative to the standard app stores.

Pros: I am a software consultant and have developed a .NET application that I am selling online. I have evaluated several products to protect my application, Quick License Manager has allowed me to completely automate the process. I sell my software via RegNow. Quick license manager integrates with Regnow so that when a customer buys a copy of my software, Regnow automatically contacts the Quick License Manager and creates a license key that is sent to the customer. Neat! All the customer information and license key are then stored in a DB that I can access via a cool looking GUI. The licensing itself is very simple, I just had to drop a .NET Control in my application et voila!

Cons: No real cons. Some of the samples provided did not work off the bat.

Overall: Excellent.

Pros: We like the functionality if you keep things simple

Cons: Quite time consuming to get working properly and installation is not that easy. User interface is a bit convoluted it would be nice if it defaulted to a simple UI without columsn and columsn of data that we will never user. We have just upgraded to the Enterprise version and it seems that in order to use floating licensnes and/or mobile liensne issuing its not that easy to setup. Their technical support can be either very helpful of quite dismissive!

Overall: It's OK - but way too complicated

Pros: I integrated this with MS Access. I like being able to control the program to ensure it is not being shared without that person purchasing the program from me. The ability to integrate with access and manage the license (number of activations allowed) is key.

Cons: i have several ppl that purchase the program earlier then when the trial period expires. They cannot input the new key until the trial expires.

Pros: The license manager is very good. I can be used for any programming language. also customer service is pretty good. they are pretty responsive and answer questions as quickly as possible

Cons: I wish there was a 1 day class on the software. instead of small videos, maybe a single 3-4 hour class. where I can learn the entire software. I was not able to implement it on the older version of C. but it did work on the latest version of vba.

Overall: haven't fully utilized the program yet
