  • What is considered a Site?

A Site is defined by each Data Center.

  • How does the Site License work?

The Site License is a perpetual license, allowing unlimited users to access the software, and can be installed on an unlimited number farms within each data Center. Each Site (data center) requires a license.

  • When does it make sense to purchase a Site License?

Acceleratio recommends purchasing a Site License when a company has 10 or more production farms, or future plans to increase their production farms.

  • When do you recommend purchasing a Team Subscription?

If you have six or more consultants who need to use the SPDocKit tool, we recommend purchasing the Team Subscription. The SPDocKit Team Subscription allows unlimited users within your firm to use the tool, and you can install on an unlimited number of client farms. Within the customer portal, you can easily add and delete users, too.

  • Need to estimate the number of Documentation Toolkit for SharePoint Licenses you need to purchase?

Each Production License that is purchased with Software Assurance, is granted an equivalent number of non-production (testing, passive, Development, etc.) activations, free of charge. So let’s say you have five farms, 3 production and 2 non-production farms. You would only need to purchase 2 SPDocKit Farm licenses + Software Assurance, and one non-production license, because we generously offer two licenses FREE of charge, because we are just nice like that.

  • Do I need to purchase Software Assurance?

As you may know, nothing in technology is static, as such, Acceleratio’s software products continue to evolve and improve. So, if you are a fan of product enhancements, new features, and like to save money, you should definitely purchase Software Assurance. While we offer the minor bug releases free of charge, the Major Version Releases are not free to those who do not have Software Assurance. I don’t know about you, but I am all for getting FREE! Considering that Software Assurance is only 30% of the license cost vs. purchasing a whole new license (which is what you would have to do if you wanted to upgrade and did not have Software Assurance) it’s more than worth it!

  • Who is eligible for the Consultant and Team Editions?

Consultant subscriptions were designed specifically for Consultants and Consulting firms who provide SharePoint services to external companies. They cannot be used on internal company farms, and can only be used by consultants for their customers.
