Choosing the Right Intuiface License

Let’s touch on the basics of licensing. If you’d like a graduate course, feel free to contact your favorite Intuiface Sales rep for assistance.

Intuiface Composer, the editor, has a concurrent user license. You need as many licenses as you’ll have concurrent users – that is, users working at the same time. Five people will use Composer but only one at a time? Then you only need one license

Composer options are differentiated by feature set. 

Here are the available tiers and their duration options. 

NOTE: All Composers in your Intuiface account must be at the same tier level.

  • Essential (annual only): Elimination of all Composer Free limitations
  • Premier (annual only): All of Composer Essential + data tracking and the ability to create custom integrations to external data, business logic and devices (aka interface assets)
  • Enterprise (month-to-month or annual): All of Composer Premier + remote deployment

Intuiface Player, the runtime, has a concurrent device license. You need as many licenses as you’ll have devices running experiences in the field. Five devices will be running experiences at the same time? Then you need five licenses.

Player options are differentiated by operating system.

Here are the available choices and their duration options:

  • Player for Windows (month-to-month, annual, or – exclusively for Composer Enterprise accounts – perpetual): For devices running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10, regardless of screen size.
  • Player for Kiosks (annual only): For devices running Chrome, Tizen 2.0 on the Samsung SMART Signage Platform, and Android if the screen diagonal is greater than 13.5” (35.5cm)
  • Player for Tablets (month-to-month or annual): For the iPad (not the iPhone) and consumer off-the-shelf Android tablets.

So is it possible to hide the fact that you’re using Intuiface? Remember, your IntuiFace designs are always 100% yours. This means the only thing to white label is Composer and Player themselves. Well Composer can’t be white labeled. Sorry, not possible. Player itself can’t be white labeled either but you can hide it when launching an experience. Check out the white label option for Player for Windows and the post-to-store option for the iPad and Android devices.

Here’s a cool thought: create your own subscription business! Player (and Composer) licenses can be transferred between devices as often as you wish. There is no limit. This means you can move licenses from one project to another, essentially re-renting them. Even better, with perpetual Player for Windows licenses, you’re paying a one-time fee for licenses you can repeatedly rent out. They’ll pay for themselves many times over.

Just a couple of other things:

  1. We’ve created the notion of secondary accounts, making it easy for you to share your licenses and control experience distribution amongst multiple clients. You’re going to like it and use it. Our online library has a great article about secondary accounts.
  2. Speaking of sharing licenses, you can transfer your licenses to whomever you wish. This means there iit is not mandatory for your clients to buy Player licenses for themselves. It comes down to how you want to conduct your relationship with each client. You may choose a business model in which clients directly shoulder the license costs, or you may choose a model that bakes license costs into your services fee.
