License policy

A PLANTA license is a server license, with usage-dependent prices. Customers can choose between two license models: a license scaled according to the number of reference objects and a license scaled according to the number of named users.

For both license models the prices are scaled.
The number of reference objects in the database or the number of named users determines which scale is applied.

Dependence on the number of reference objects

In this license model the reference objects differ per function, for example

  • in PLANTA Project the reference objects are project tasks
  • in PLANTA Portfolio the reference objects are planning objects (projects, ideas, proposals, programs)
  • in PLANTA Request the reference objects are requests

The prices for this license model are based on the planning volume, i.e. the total number of the activities or tasks in all projects which are to be planned at the same time.

If additional reference objects (tasks for PLANTA Project, projects for PLANTA Portfolio, etc) are required, a license for a higher task volume must be purchased. If the customer has a maintenance contract, only the difference between the license price already paid and the price for the new task volume is charged, based on the currently valid price list. If a maintenance contract was not concluded, the license price for the higher task volume is charged.

In multi-user mode, a PLANTA license can be used with exactly one server database. The following factors do not affect the license price:

  • Number of named users
  • Computers used
  • Operating systems used
  • Local or remote network operation

Advantages
Experience shows that in a project management environments there are generally a few employees responsible for planning a project and many involved in its execution. One of the tasks of the latter group is to report back the progress of the project.

For organizations in this situation, PLANTA’s license policy implies:

  • any number of reporters or project team members can use the software without additional costs;
  • the number of project team members can be increased in accordance with company- or project-specific requirements;
  • even project team members from other organizations or companies who are working on the project can enter working hours for the planned projects;
  • even small software applications pay for themselves in a short time.

Dependence on the number of named users

In this license model the license is scaled according to the number of named users.

If additional users are required, a license for a higher volume is to be purchased. If the customer has a maintenance contract, only the difference between the license price already paid and the price for the new task volume is charged, based on the currently valid price list. If a maintenance contract was not concluded, the license price for the higher volume is charged.

In multi-user mode, a PLANTA license can be used with exactly one server database. The following factors do not affect the license price:

  • Number of reference objects
  • Computers used
  • Operating systems used
  • Local or remote network operation

Advantages
This models is recommend when having many planned objects (= reference objects) but altogether a few users (= named users)
