Centralized License Management Interface
Sentinel EMS enables software publishers to improve lifecycle management capabilities, reduce support costs, and enhance the end-user experience by offering a single, consistent interface to employees, partners, and end-users alike for managing software licensing rights and entitlements. The system features a role-based vendor portal, increased visibility for partners and distributors, and a self-service end-user portal.

Simplification of Licensing & Fulfillment Functions
Sentinel EMS enables customers to simplify manual, time-consuming operational, compliance, and reporting functions throughout the entire license lifecycle. Automation of licensing fulfillment, activation, and management processes enables customers to maximize profitability and improve business operations. With Sentinel EMS customers can create and allocate batches of entitlements for future activation to retailers and distributions in a single run, reducing production costs and empowering distributors to operate more independently than before.

Product Activation & Entitlement Data Collection & Reporting
Sentinel EMS enables more effective product marketing, sales, and management by providing data collection and reporting features that allow customers to more accurately forecast their renewal, upgrade, and budgeting figures, as well as determine how products are being deployed and used. Options to collect user registration data, track entitlements, and monitor activation trends not only improves the efficacy and ROI of sales, marketing, and product management, but also provides software vendors with direct access to the end-users who activate and use the product.

Flexible System Integration
Fully integrated with Sentinel RMS but architected to support any licensing system, Sentinel EMS provides customers with a means to centrally manage disparate licensing systems and offer a single, consistent interface to employees, partners, and end-users for managing their software licenses. With Sentinel EMS you can integrate directly into your back office CRM and ERP systems or you can leverage a modern inter-system communication implementation like an ESB.

Sentinel EMS SAP Connector
Establishing a strong interface between the system that generates and manages your software licensing and entitlements, and your SAP ERP system is a vital part of any successful licensing solution and can provide invaluable insight into your customers.

In the past with no link between these two systems—inefficiencies and manual work was created for SAP users in associating customers with their software license entitlements.  Now with the availability of the Sentinel EMS SAP Connector, associating SAP info with entitlement IDs has never been easier.
