Frequently asked questions about the Pathfinder Suite licensing model

How many devices can I manage with Pathfinder?

You can manage an unlimited number of devices. It is completely independent of the respective license and there are no restrictions for you as a user. You can document any number of data sockets, computers, server racks, locations and any other component you can think of.

What licenses are available?

You can choose between Pathfinder rental, Pathfinder full or Pathfinder Lite. Additionally, with Pathfinder Viewer we offer you the possibility to purchase a read-only license. Except for Pathfinder Lite, all licenses are based on the concurrent-user model. Here you can find an overview of the Pathfinder license model.

How many licenses do I need for my company?

It depends on the number of employees in your company who will access Pathfinder at the same time. Pathfinder is licensed according to the concurrent-user model. This means that the number of licenses purchased determines how many employees can work with the software simultaneously (reading or writing). For more information, please contact us. Our sales team is always ready to assist you.

What does “multi-user support” mean and what is the concurrent-user model?

Multi-user support means that multiple user accounts can work simultaneously, based on the concurrent-user model. Here, the number of licenses purchased determines how many of your employees can access Pathfinder at the same time with read and write privileges. The multi-user version of Pathfinder is portable and can be installed as many times as you want.

Is there a minimum rental period for the rental version?

No, currently there is no minimum rental period. We want to support our clients who need maximum flexibility in the Corona pandemic. Therefore, the rental license is currently cancellable on a monthly basis. You may also purchase your rented licenses and convert them into the full license at any time.

Do I own the software?

Pathfinder can be used for an unlimited time if you have purchased a single or multi-user license. Pathfinder rental is available to you for the rented period.
