Convenient Trial Modes
Convert those trials into permanent licenses - automatically.
Support trials and demonstration versions of your product, by simply adding the evaluation user to the list of licensed users. Later, it the customer purchases, there is nothing special to do - they are already enabled.
Licensing options can be unique per customer.
With RLM Personal Edition, each of your customers can have a unique set of license options. And you can change those options at any time, right from the user editing screen on your RLMCloud server. Perhaps you set the options to "demo" for an evaluation license, then change to a normal set of options when they purchase. It's up to you!
Enjoy license management on every major platform.

Browser-Based Administration Interface
No separate administration tool is necessary.
With RLM Personal Edition, you only have to edit the list of authorized users for your product. This is done on your RLMCloud server, using your browser. Add an evaluation user. Add a customer. Remove a user. Change a user's options - it's all done from the same interface.
Plain Text for Log Files
Plain input. Plain output.
At Reprise, we're committed to an open architecture. And assess usage of licenses with ease since it's always recorded in fully documented, unencrypted log files. You can choose from several off-the-shelf RLM usage reporting solutions from our partners – or create your own report writer - we never force you to buy a license management tool to understand the usage of your products.

Distributed Servers with High Availability
RLM Personal Edition has Failover License Servers
With all RLM Personal Edition plans of 500 licenses or more, your server includes an automatic failover server. Should the primary license server go down, the failover takes over and continues to serve licenses. There are no software changes required to obtain this functionality - it's all built into RLM Personal Edition.
Resolve license contention and setup problems swiftly since logs are unencrypted; diagnostics from all licensed clients are always available. Customers ship the diagnostic output to you via email for prompt service. RLM Personal Edition's license management service never gets in the way of diagnosing customer problems.
Why do you need RLM Personal Edition?
You develop best-of-breed software products. Your expertise is not license management software. So you turn to the license management professionals for a robust software licensing solution. For most straightforward licensing situations, RLM Personal Edition can help you.
You are stuck in a "one-license-fits-all" sales model, which makes you unable to offer different license rights in different situations to your customers. License management increases your revenues by allowing you to deliver licenses that better match your customer's needs.
Most companies can benefit from the ability to offer floating (concurrent) licenses to their customers. But the real win is that you can tailor the license rights to the customer situation - with RLM Personal Edition you can assign each user their own set of license options.
