Run A Successful Software Business

Packaging, pricing, deployment and provisioning options are always changing. Customer use rights (entitlements) change as well – assets move within the company because customers upgrade or downgrade their packages or they go through M&A or divestitures. FlexNet Operations manages the dynamic nature of software entitlements. You get the needed insight to make the connection between your software products, your devices, your customers and their usage.

  • Maximize revenue from upgrades and renewals
  • Reduce churn and drive upsell/cross-sell initiatives based on usage insight
  • Make strategic decisions for future product development and pricing
  • Streamline operational processes and automate transactions, notifications and reports
  • Manage your on-premises, Cloud, SaaS, virtualized and embedded apps in one central monetization back office


A Modular Software Operations Solution That Meets Your Demands

FlexNet Operations is a modular system that can be tailored to your needs. The platform comes with a solid base product and six optional modules that have been developed based on Flexera’s deep and extensive understanding of the software and IoT industries and the specific demands of today’s software suppliers.

Usage Management Usage-based monetization models are on the rise – use accurate and transparent meters

Pay-per-use, pay-per-outcome, pay-for-overage – software suppliers try to better align pricing with what is really used. Both pure usage-based models and hybrid models with a usage component depend on accurate metering.

  • Support usage-based models and offer trust-but-verify software licensing and compliance models
  • Offer pricing based on actual usage (pay-for-use, pay-for-burst, pay-for-overage, etc.)
  • Provide visibility and transparency – enable buyers to access their usage date themselves
  • Support compliance initiatives
  • Export usage data for billing, pattern analysis and optimization
