Experience Innovation: The OpenLM Advantage Over FlexNet Manager

OpenLM is a powerful Software License Management (SLM) solution designed to maximize your license utilization and reduce costs associated with unused licenses.  While FlexNet Manager is a decent option, OpenLM offers a broader range of functionalities and a more user-friendly experience.

Here's Why OpenLM is the Clear Choice:

Optimize License Utilization

Identify idle licenses with advanced session tracking and reclaim them through license harvesting – features not available in FlexNet Manager.

Deployment Flexibility

Choose between on-premise or cloud-based deployment to suit your business needs perfectly. FlexNet Manager only offers on-premise solutions.

Unparalleled Security

Benefit from industry-leading security certifications like ISO 27001 and SOC 2.0, ensuring your data is always protected.

Unmatched Software Support

Manage licenses for over 25,000 applications, including engineering, non-engineering, cloud, and on-premise software – far exceeding FlexNet Manager's limited capabilities.

Transparent and Affordable Pricing

Get clear pricing plans without hidden costs. OpenLM is known for being a more cost-effective solution compared to FlexNet Manager.

Broader License Manager Support

OpenLM integrates with over 75+ license managers, compared to FlexNet Manager's limited support for FlexNet Publisher only.

Enhanced SAM Integration

Integrate OpenLM with your existing SAM tools like ServiceNow or License Dashboard for a more holistic view of your software assets.

Customer Testimonials

5/5

Trimble Navigation Ltd. switched from FlexLM to OpenLM for better CAD system cost allocation and license management. OpenLM’s ‘Groups’ feature and reporting tools track actual license usage, simplifying cost distribution, while also streamlining server management and resolving hung licenses.

5/5

OpenLM helped us quickly generate a detailed report with graphics when we faced a Matlab license availability issue. It replaced the manual process of scavenging FlexLM logs and allowed us to monitor license activity in real-time. OpenLM has significantly reduced our work stress by providing accurate data for decision-making and conflict resolution regarding campus license issues. Its intuitive design, easy installation and upgrade process have been invaluable. Thanks, OpenLM!
