Questions about licenses and purchasing process for Metronic
I actually have a few questions regarding licensing and purchasing of Metronic:
1.) My company has a preferred purchasing process that requires vendors to give us quotes and then we purchase the product through resellers. We generally have to get special permission to purchase products directly.
- Can KeenThemes accommodate this process?
- Is ThemeForest by Envato considered a reseller of your product? Are there other resellers of Metronic?
2.) Regarding licensing:
We plan to use Metronic in an application that's only used internally in our company. Our end users are just other teams within our same company and we'd be using Metronic in one application that has instances deployed to different sites within our company. Our end users don't pay for use of it because it's developed in house.
- We believe that the regular license applies to our situation. Is that correct?
- If we decide to use Metronic in other in house applications like this one, we would just need to buy another regular license for each new application. Is that correct?
- And the extended license would only apply if we started selling our application to those outside of our company. Is that correct?
Thanks for your interest in Metronic.
Themeforest is not considered a reseller. If you need to purchase via resellers you can use any reseller company service around you. Also, you can open themeforest.net account with your company details and purchase it using a personal card.
Regarding licenses, each use of Metronic requires a separate license. If you develop a site and deploy it on multiple servers for different user groups then you will need to purchase multiple regular licenses. With a regular license, the end-users can not be charged.
To charge the end-users for using the service you will need the extended license. Both regular and extended licenses are limited to a single use.
We deploy our application to multiple servers, but the user group that accesses all the servers is the same for all servers. The reason for the multiple servers is to take on different data source feeds. The same set of users would login to one to see the data for one source and then login to the other to see the data for a different source. Is that still one regular license or would we need a separate license per server?
In other words, is the regular license tied to the user group or the number of servers?
And thanks for the quick response earlier.
In your case, each application instance can be considered as a different sub-application or service no matter if it has the same or different user groups.
One regular license is tied to one kind of application and deployment. If you have the same user group but multiple applications then for each application you will need a separate license.
