Control Bentley® License Usage; Reduce or Eliminate QTL Invoices

November 03, 2014 -- Beginning January 1, 2014 Bentley® Systems, Inc. began implementing its new SELECT Basic Access and SELECT Open Access licensing programs. At their next renewal, existing Bentley® customers will automatically be moved to the new SELECT Basic or Open Access license program with no method to opt out. 

The most important new feature of the new SELECT license programs is what happens for those customers who use more licenses than are in their license pool of previously purchased “perpetual licenses”. When usage per Bentley® product occurs in excess of the quantity owned by the customer a minimum of 4 times (days) during the calendar quarter, the customer will receive an invoice for the overage labeled “quarterly term license usage fees”. This means customers may receive up to 4 invoices per year from Bentley® for over using their licenses. 

It is important to note that Bentley® provides no direct method to restrict license usage to only what is owned or other value. The Bentley® customer desiring a method to reduce or eliminate quarterly term license usage fees is left to his or her own means to control license usage. 

SofTrack provides the Bentley® customer with the direct ability to control each license owned. SofTrack's unique technology gives you the ability to control Bentley® licenses as each are activated by way of the Bentley® product ID code. 

SofTrack additionally gives the Bentley® customer Calendar Hour (Hour-By-Hour) license control for Bentley® SELECT Basic and Open Access Trust Licenses

You benefit by controlling your over use of Bentley® licenses and therefore reducing or eliminating your quarterly overage billing by Bentley®.
