Today at KeenTools we’re updating our licensing — simplifying types, clarifying names and adding a monthly option for individual users. We’re finally fixing the way our subscriptions work — they require no manual update every year any more.
From now on, two subscription types are available for each of our products:
For individuals only, allows commercial usage. Products under this subscription type can be used on a single machine (node-locked), there are annual and monthly options.
Standard choice for companies. This type gives you floating subscription keys that can be shared across an unlimited number of machines using an instance of our license server running in your network: one key for one computer at a time. It can be used as node-locked too.
All old licenses remain active until expiration dates.
Please note that we’re going away from ‘Commercial’ licenses (node-locked) because they weren’t popular and often led to confusion. However, we’ll keep supporting all current users of ‘Commercial’ licenses. In a short while, they will receive an email from us with a special offer to switch to Studio with a discount price for the first year of the subscription equal to the previous annual ‘Commercial’ price.
When purchasing the ‘FaceBuilder + FaceTracker’ bundle, you’ll receive a single subscription key for both products. After the key is activated, both plug-ins installed on one machine will be able to use the key. These products can’t be used on different computers at the same time using one FaceBundle key. That also applies to the floating license server.
For 7 years since the foundation of KeenTools, we’ve kept our prices intact. It’s been our major concern to postpone the increase for as long as we could. We understand that this is always an unpopular measure, but we have to make this difficult step now to support and improve our current products and, more importantly, work on the new releases.
The new prices are listed on our Buying page.
Apart from changing names and types, we finally get to proper subscriptions. Now you don’t need to re-purchase and re-install new license keys every year. Once you start your subscription, it’ll be valid until you decide to cancel it. No reactivation or any other actions needed on your side. All users can now manage all their subscriptions on our User Portal, which also allows downloading offline keys for machines not connected to the Internet.
Following multiple requests from our individual users, we’re introducing a new monthly subscription option for all of our products. Find the prices on our Buying page.
