Slickey makes it easy to deploy boxed, licensed products with enterprise deployment tools.
Up to now, packagers, administrators etc have been hampered in smaller businesses as generally, these type of small to medium companies have purchased software as and when it is needed, and not worried about volume licensing until its too late!
Obviously, it is not a viable option to create multiple packages/applications for the same product with different license keys…
Slickey allows you you create one package or application which ‘checks in’ to obtain available license keys from a central server. This the logs the machine name and date of license retrieval. Similarly, the uninstall will ‘check’ the license key back in once the software is removed.
As you probably already know, this could save thousands in licensing.
Its still a young product, but one which could not only save companies a lot of money, but also save system administrators a lot of time. This all improves efficiency of IT systems – which, lets face it, is the reason we all do what we do!
