Reduce Admin Burden with Centralized License Management

The roles (solutions) of 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS combine the ease of using SOLIDWORKS® with the power and breadth of the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. Users can easily collaborate with internal and external teams and all data is securely managed—and accessible—on the platform. With an internet connection and a web browser the platform makes it easy to work from anywhere.

CAD administrators will especially appreciate 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS as the overall license administration burden is significantly reduced, and licensing monitoring and management is simplified. Here are a few reasons administrators will be excited.

Administration Simplified

Typically, you install and activate SOLIDWORKS using a serial number, and the license is locked to your workstation.

If an admin needs to move a license from one machine to another—perhaps to a new laptop—that license must be deactivated on one machine and activated on the new one. An Excel spreadsheet is often used to keep track of who is using what and where the license is activated, but that is a cumbersome way to keep track of licenses, especially considering frequent employee turnover and technology upgrades within a company.

Happily, all roles (solutions) on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform are managed through an easy and innovative license management system. Admins function as platform administrators, which gives them access to several admin capabilities, including the Member Control Center.

The Member Control Dashboard allows admins to monitor and manage users and their licenses. Through this intuitive interface, admins can easily track how many licenses are available and consumed, who is using the license, and easily grant or remove a license to one or multiple users. It is also easy to alter licenses of existing users or remove users who leave the company—with one click.

Automated Tracking

All licenses are based on the named user (unique 3DEXPERIENCE ID), so no more tracking of serial numbers or worrying about their misuse. This translates to flexibility for users. Licenses are no longer locked to machines.

Use any machine, anywhere, without deactivating and activating licenses.
