Evaluations

Can I evaluate a product for free before purchasing it?

Yes, you can evaluate a product for at least 14 days (up to 28 days) before purchase, allowing you to see and use iSymphony software before you proceed with a purchase. We provides a fully functional download version of iSymphony for evaluation. What you'll be using during your evaluation is what you'll be getting when you buy. In fact, to activate your commercial license you will simply update your license key.

To generate an evaluation license key simply log into My Account. Click on iSymphony Licenses. From here, click on 'New Trial License'. A new evaluation license will be generated that you enter into your download product.

All installed evaluations include access to our technical support resources.

Consequently, software is available only via HTTP download. i9 Technologies does not distribute any software on CD, DVD or as a shrink-wrapped product. iSymphony includes 12 months of software maintenance (support and updates), the ESD model is the best way to stay up-to-date with the numerous software releases made available to you. At your discretion, maintenance can also be renewed.

Licensing

How are users counted in iSymphony licenses, as named or concurrent?

A user is by definition an object referenced within iSymphony as a User. This includes accounts that may never login but for display to other iSymphony Users. A named user is counted towards the user limit, whether logged in to the application or not. Our licensing model is based on concurrent users.

Would additional licenses be required if multiple instances of the software were to be installed on a single server?

Yes, additional licenses would be required. Each license permits only the deployment of a single instance connection to a PBX in a production environment.

What is a PBX Connection?

A PBX connection is the ability for a single iSymphony instance to connect to multiple PBXs to act as a single organization unit within iSymphony.

You can learn more about PBX Connections in the documentation. 

Would additional licenses be needed if the software is deployed on a development server or staging server for testing purposes?

Yes, it's best to utilize a trial license for this purpose.

Can I combine multiple licenses to increase the number of licensed users I have for a single instance?

Licenses cannot be combined to increase the number of users for a single instance. To increase the number of users, you will need to obtain an upgrade to the desired user tier. 

Upgrading Download Licenses

What upgrade paths are available?

Upgrade paths and pricing can be found by clicking the Upgrade link next to the license you want to upgrade in the Licenses page under My Account. On the upgrade page select the TOTAL number of Users or Queues you need for the license.

Example 1: If you have a 20 user license and you need to upgrade to 40 users, select 40 users on the purchase page. 

Example 2: If you have a 20 user license and want to add one queue, select 20 users and 1 queue on the purchase page.

Licenses cannot be combined to create custom tiers (e.g., a 20 user license and a 20 user license will not produce a 40 user license), and custom tiers are not available for purchase.

How can I purchase or request a quote for a product license upgrade?

Anyone can purchase or request a quote. Visit your Licenses page under My Account and click Upgrade next to the license you want to purchase an upgrade or see a quote.

When payment is received, an email will be sent to the nominated licensee and billing contacts providing details on how to access the license and any applicable source downloads.

When does my upgraded maintenance begin?

Maintenance expiration dates only change upon maintenance renewal. Therefore, an upgrade does not change the length of your existing maintenance agreement.
