License Activation

Users connected to the internet activate their license online seamlessly. If no internet connection is available, users can activate their license offline via the QLM Self Help web site from a connected computer or by scanning a QR code from their mobile device.

Import your data

QLM Import License Data

If you are migrating your license management from an in-house licensing system or a competitor system to QLM, you can readily import your existing data into QLM’s database using the QlmImport tool. You can import customer information as well as order information and license keys.

Subscription Licensing

Fully automated subscription licensing

Subscription licence keys automatically expire at the subscription anniversary. Renewal of the subscription is automated via our e-Commerce integration. The subscription period is extended seamlessly once payment is processed. The process is completely hands-off and requires no action from the vendor nor the customer.

User Friendly License Management

Manage license keys with a state-of-the-art graphical user interface. Protect your application with a few lines of code. No need to create your own User Interface to prompt the user for a license key: use the QLM License Wizard and brand it to suit your needs.

QLM Portal

The QLM Portal provides a web based management interface to administer license keys and customers. It is designed for resellers, affiliates and administrators on the move. The portal uses Role Based Access Control to control what operations a reseller can perform. Resellers have only access to the keys and customers they created while you have access to data from all your resellers.
