The Logic Protect model for SaaS software delivery is quite easy to follow.
The first step is to integrate the software product with Logic Protect by linking Logic Protect DLL with the application using ready-made sample code extracts provided in the LP Client Setup.
The next step is to add a new product to Logic Protect Web Admin. As an extra option several product modules can be created and sold together with the product (Logic Protect Web Admin Account will be used for software activation monitoring and user/license management).
The last step is to enable using SaaS feature by marking the product as SaaS in Web Admin. When the product is marked as SaaS a new product user with a fixed expiration date can be created. All the rest is up to Logic Protect Web Admin.
When the user activates an application copy Logic Protect Server will create a license file on userís machine and records the SaaS billing period and expiration date into it. Each time the application is launched the license file is checked for the SaaS period. When Logic Protect DLL detects that SaaS period has expired the application is blocked and Logic Protect system asks for reactivation. It means that the SaaS period is over and the user should prolong his subscription to continue using the application. The user can be informed about the approaching expiry date by automated e-mail messages and built-in dialogs.
As a unique option an existing PayPal account can be integrated with Logic Protect and work in a fully automated mode of software delivery and payment management. When the payment is received Logic Protect Web Admin will create a new user using the information from the order details (first name, last name, company, e-mail, etc.), generate a unique serial number and send out the registration information to the userís e-mail.
