Summary: Lanner has deployed the Reprise License Manager at a large multi-national automobile manufacturer. Both parties are delighted with the simplicity and reliability of the system. Lanner is now undertaking the work to roll out RLM as a standard licensing mechanism to all customers within its autumn release of WITNESS Power with Ease. Its plans also call for RLM to be used with its PRISM and Px-SIM range of products early in 2010.
Lanner chooses RLM for its flagship dynamic process analysis software WITNESS
Lanner develops simulation software that enables organisations to understand and improve their business processes. Lanner’s simulation technology works by enabling users to represent their real world processes in a dynamic animated computer model and then experiment with alternative ‘what-if ?’ scenarios to identify the optimal solution. It includes the natural variability and complexity of interactions in users’ processes that spreadsheets or planning based techniques can’t reflect.
Dynamic Process Analysis
Lanner’s technology is used by the most technically respected and demanding organisations in manufacturing, and in the service and financial sectors. It is also chosen by many of the worlds leading software providers. Based in the UK with subsidiaries and partners in Europe, The Americas and the Far East, Lanner applications are used by more than 3,500 companies globally.
With Lanner, customers can access simulation technology through a range of industry standard and industry tailored desktop tools; so making dynamic process analysis accessible and convenient. For great general purpose 2D and 3D process modelling, our customers choose WITNESS simulation. For those needing a simulation engine to embed within their own software solution, they adopt Lanner’s L-SIM.
Lanner’s Plans and RLM
Lanner has deployed the Reprise License Manager at a large multi-national automobile manufacturer. Both parties are delighted with the simplicity and reliability of the system. Lanner is now undertaking the work to roll out RLM as a standard licensing mechanism to all customers within its autumn release of WITNESS Power with Ease. Its plans also call for RLM to be used with its PRISM and Px-SIM range of products early in 2010.
Flexible license management allows Lanner to protect multiple product configurations, across a variety of deployment scenarios, and yet maintain a single license control database. By integrating the RLM Internet Activation into our Salesforce.com based business information system, Lanner expects to achieve a significant reduction in cost and time within the license fulfillment process.
RLM Integration with Salesforce.com
With RLM Internet Activation, Lanner will be able to support sales to customers worldwide without the time-zone delays normally related with a UK based customer service team. The self-service license fulfillment removes the need for e-mail exchanges, saving of attachments, and users having to follow complicated instructions. Not only will RLM deliver better customer service, it will vastly reduce the load on our customer support team.
“With our implementation of RLM v7, our maintained customers will get upgrade rights downloaded to their license servers or to their node-locked client applications automatically.” says David Jones Lanner CEO. “We are looking forward to being able to offer short-term trials, upgrades and additional licensed seats, simply by adjusting our Salesforce.com records. This will be a key component in helping Lanner grow its business.”
