Cherwell Asset Management

For small industries, it can prove to be a better solution as Cherwell offers comparatively affordable costs for small organizations. But for larger companies, there are many other solutions available in the market that are less complex and offer a variety of additional features. It can be a little complex to use because of its high configuration.

OpenLM for Engineering Licensing

OpenLM can simplify the reporting of complex licenses with multiple toolboxes or products on one server. It covers most of our license server types, but not all. The academic version is reasonably priced (e.g. for educational institutions) giving 90% of the features, however setting it up on-premise was more complex than our original pilot would suggest. We couldn't do without it now.

Cons

Cherwell Asset Management

  • Very costly licenses.
  • Requires comparatively high amount of configuration.
  • Comparatively complex to use other solutions available in market.

OpenLM for Engineering Licensing

  • You can share a link to a dynamic report (e.g. the last 365 days). The URL is very long but it can be used with a 3rd party short URL utility and shared with users.
  • Upgrading to the latest version took a long time to troubleshoot, which left a short gap in the saved data.
