Monitor, manage and analyse the usage and needs of your company’s software licences

How can CQFlexMon work for you?

CQFlexMon includes several independent modules that can be activated or removed from use as per your company’s needs and requests.

The software scans the licences installed on a server, and retrieves information using a configured time interval and stores it in a structured database (SQL). The client software is installed on the clients that are to analyse the results.

The desired data is always available in both graphical and spreadsheet form and may be monitored in real time or for a specified time range.

Today, more than 500 different licence servers worldwide are monitored by CQFlexMon with information retrieved from more than 100,000 computers.

CQFlexMon Modules

Allows you to see all available software suites and their utilisation rates, including the date of max usage.

Calculates the actual utilisation rate for all software licences; how many hours a certain user, unit, department, or project has used a particular type of licence.

Calculates the costs accrued from the usage of licences. The total cost for a chosen time period is calculated based on the usage time and hourly rates.

Gives a clear picture of users who have borrowed licences. Provides information on which software
each user has borrowed and how many days remain.

Allows control of users’ rights to products. The module may be used to restrict the usage of certain products or to reserve products per user, unit, department or project. In addition, it is possible to define products which may not be borrowed and when a licence is returned automatically from loan.

Application Monitor allows monitoring of the actual usage of all software installed on all workstations, for example software solutions from Autodesk, Dassault, PTC, Kymdata, Vertex, Siemens, etc. At the same time, it can verify that the installed software meets the licence terms.

User data can be synchronised between the CQFlexMon database and the Active Directory

Locates unauthorised software installations on workstations for:

  • Cracked – protection bypassed licences
  • Trial licences
  • 'Not For Resale (NFR)' licences
