Group and Site Licences
Group licences and subscriptions
If you want access to Quirkos across a whole organisation, department or computer lab, there are several options.
There are two types of group licences: static licences which provide Quirkos on specified computer(s) or group subscriptions to the Quirkos Cloud platform. We offer discounts when buying more than 3 licences or subscriptions, on top of our already affordable prices.
To get quotes and more information about these options, please e-mail email@example.com, or call +44 (0)131 555 3736.
Cloud Subscriptions or Static Licences
Quirkos Cloud lets you access your project data from anywhere by storing your data on our secure cloud server, and allows teams to share and collaborate on projects in real-time.
It is based around subscription licences for each user, available on a quarterly or annual basis. We can provide institutional signup pages that allow permitted users to directly register their accounts, without the need for credit/debit card information, and paid by a central account. We offer sizable discounts for large groups.
Contact us for more information on providing Quirkos Cloud access to your whole organisation or team, or to learn more about using Quirkos Cloud for your qualitative analysis software.
For the offline version of Quirkos, you can purchase permanent licences for each user and their computer. These are linked to a particular computer, and allow it to always use Quirkos.
The first time Quirkos is installed, a licence code is entered, and the computer is activated. The only time this licence can be moved is if hardware is replaced or lost, and requires a manual request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer a scalable group discount if 3 or more licences are purchased at once - please contact email@example.com to take advantage of this offer.
Legacy (now depreciated): Floating licences
Floating licences are now depreciated. As an alternative, we recommend a Quirkos Cloud Site Licence. Contact us for more information.
With our floating licences, an unlimited number of computers in an organisation can have Quirkos installed, but only a set number can use Quirkos at once. This is defined as the number of 'seats', like seats at a table: when someone stands up, another user can take their place.
In this situation, we provide licence server software which manages the number of 'seats' or simultaneous users that are allowed. This software needs to be run on a computer on the local network which end users have access to. Most IT departments will already have a suitable server, and our software will work on Windows, Mac or Linux servers. If this is not possible for your organisation, we can host a server for you for an additional fee.
The first time an authorised user starts Quirkos, they will need the IP address of this server, and if there are free places the software will allow them to start Quirkos. Usually IT departments will install Quirkos on a managed desktop environment, but users can also download the floating licence version of software for themselves below, and it can even be run from a USB stick. End users can be on either Mac or Windows versions of Quirkos from the same licence server. There is no difference in features or compatibility between the float and static versions of Quirkos.
