Grow and Differentiate your Device
Chances are, you are already enhancing your devices with significant software development. It’s time to monetize that investment using electronic license management, which ensures that your devices are used in a manner consistent with your license terms. In addition, it is likely that you are facing intense competition, resulting in your devices becoming commoditized, thus driving down your profit margins. If you are looking for creative ways to increase margins without re-tooling your manufacturing line, look to differentiating your devices through their software capabilities.
Rather than relying on special configurations to differentiate your devices, using software that implements new capabilities lets you ensure that those capabilities are only available to users who are entitled to them. These multiple configurations will set you apart from your competitors and provide better delineation within your own product line.
