Software Potential Web Services Overview
The Software Potential service offers a comprehensive, secure Web Service interface that enable developers access product, license, SKU, and activation data stored centrally in the developer's service account.
This LicenseManagementWS interface supports:
- Licensing Management – to automate the creation of products and SKUs/editions (such as Medical Image Silver, Gold, or Platinum SKUs), as well as the creation and activation of licenses.
- Renewal Management - to automate the management of subscription license renewals, allowing renewals to be managed from third party systems such as CRM/ERP etc.
- Business Systems/Process integration – to retrieve product, SKU, customer, license, and activation data from the Software Potential service account and optionally store this data into internal or customer facing systems such as CRM. This enables software publishers to perform data analysis on customer license, activation, and usage information in context from within their CRM systems rather than using the Software Potential service portal.
- Querying and Reporting - to query data in the Software Potential account instead of depending on the Software Potential web portal for manual reporting. The variety of filters provided means developers can carry out more detailed analysis using the web services, allowing developers and software publishers to apply business analytics to further improve customer relations.
