Licensing a custom database app (and managing licenses)
Posted 14 December 2011 - 12:53 PM
I've been working on a custom database to address a need in my legal practice, and have thought of marketing it to other law firms. I'm curious what others have done regarding licensing their custom applications and how they manage licenses. (E.g., keep track of the number of licenses each client has, when they expire (if you're charging a recurring license fee), client billing, etc. Also, if there is any way to monitor whether a client has a number of users in excess of its licenses.) I imagine I could write a database to handle that, too, but I wonder if there is an existing solution already.
Also, I'd be curious to know how others have approached setting a price for custom database apps.
