Control Software Usage

Global leader in retail CAD

Privately held business, leader in its market

  • Organizational Owner

    Compliance
  • Challenge

    The Company sells several CAD products online, ranging in price point from $120 - $1,900.  With their license keys easily replicated and shared, they found significant misuse and overuse, making traditional direct compliance effort inefficient.

  • Solution

    The Company deployed CodeArmor Control within its product creating a low-touch, in-application promotion to unlicensed users.  End-users using an unlicensed version of the product were presented with messaging that directed them to their ecommerce site.  If the users did not purchase a licensed version they were then able to expire access to the product.

  • Results

    After full deployment of CodeArmor Control the Company expects between 2-5% license revenue recovery from converting misuse into authorized users.
