Licensing

Our flexible licensing options have the potential of significantly reducing your software expense.

Polar Help Desk software licensing models are based on number of support representatives (technicians / agents), while the number of customers (end users / service users) is not limited.

There are two licensing models available. According to your company’s needs, you can choose which ever model you find fitting or any combination of the two.

Fixed licensing model – named licenses

Named license guarantees the user to login to the application at any time and from anywhere. Additionally, the number of simultaneous sessions is not limited for the named license user, meaning he can be logged in from different places at the same time.

Floating licensing model – concurrent licenses

Concurrent license allows you to add as many users as you like, all with logon access, but only N users can be logged on at any one time. N is the number of concurrent users purchased.

You may setup as many concurrent users as you wish and they may all access the Polar Help Desk application. However, the number of those users actually able to login at once will be limited by the number of licenses you purchase.
For example, your company may have 50 members of your support department. You may create a unique account for each of them and they may all access the system. However, if you purchased 10 licenses, only 10 of your employees will be able to access the system at once.

Concurrent user licenses can be cost effective when support personnel is working in shifts or different time zones and do not have an overlap in support hours.

Combination of fixed and floating licensing models

You may purchase a number of named and a number of concurrent licenses depending on your business and your organization processes and working environment.
Named licenses ensure the access to the application at all times.
Concurrent user licenses can be cost effective when support personnel is working in shifts and/or support personnel work in different time zones and do not have an overlap in support hours.
