A device license applies to only one specific computer through which multiple users can log on in sequence. The number of users which can work with staffITpro WEB using this machine is not limited.

8. WEB licenses

A web license is reserved exclusively for the use of Internet and browser based staffITpro WEB add on applications. For example these include the smartCV applications and other WEB applications which have been developed on the basis of the API. These applications are typically provided through the Internet, so that the number of users cannot be determined. For this kind of applications audeoSoft will agree a flat license price with the customer.

9. Payment for additional modules

Additional modules such as smartCV, business reports, TAPI and all other are subject to a charge and must be ordered in addition to the staffITpro WEB server. For some additional modules (e.g. smartCV) it may be necessary to order as many SAL’s as for the staffITpro WEB license. For other modules an individual amount of SAL’s can be ordered.
