Once you fill out the contact form, our sales team will get in touch with you to help you get started with OpenLM. After the demo, you will be assigned a dedicated support representative who will answer all your questions.

Our pay-per-user pricing allows organizations of all sizes to manage their software assets. The Monitoring edition of OpenLM allows you to gain the necessary insights into license consumption, while the Automation edition will give you more control over your licenses.

OpenLM Academic Program was established to provide license management software to accredited, degree-granting colleges and universities for non-commercial, not-for-profit, and educational purposes.

We calculate the pricing based on the number of users, not applications. This means that you now have the option to select the subscription that suits your license management needs. The Monitoring plan includes all the necessary tools to gain critical insights into license consumption, while the Automation edition extends OpenLM’s capabilities to give you more control over your software assets.

OpenLM is committed to delivering the best experience to our customers. No matter the solution you select, you get the same level of support. However, when compared to our on-premise solution (which was earlier known as OpenLM for Engineering Licenses), OpenLM Software License Management Cloud allows you to have a monitoring system up and running in minutes, without any software installation.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express or wire transfer. We don’t accept PayPal.

This OpenLM feature allows you to import user details from Windows Active Directory, including host and user names, organization units (OU’s) and groups. It is synchronized according to the frequency you specify (doesn’t require anything else) and works with multiple corporate AD domains.
