Licensing options

Visual Paradigm provide simple and flexible licensing options to suit your projects of a single developer all the way to multiple developer teams spread across the globe. This article details the various Visual Paradigm licensing options.

Perpetual license

Perpetual license provide permanent access to Visual Paradigm.

Single-seat license

Visual Paradigm’s single-seat (team-member-based) license allows one licensee to install the software on a computer that belongs and provides sole access to the named user only. Since the license is team-member-based, the software must be used by the licensee only, without running more than one instance concurrently. The single-seat license only allows installation on a maximum of three computers. One year of software maintenance is included in the price.

The table below shows the unit price of single-seat license for the four editions of Visual Paradigm.

Floating license

The floating license supports sharing of the pool of licenses among your team. Instead of purchasing a single-seat license for each team member, optimize your budget by purchasing floating licenses for the maximum number of simultaneous software users or access points. This approach allows greater flexibility in using our software. Users can then export the license files to a laptop to use the software offsite (to deliver a presentation, for example) and then import the license back to the server at a later time.

The table below shows the unit price of floating license for the four editions of Visual Paradigm.

In order to work with the floating license, installation of a VP Server that stores the license key file(s) and also automatically manages access requests from clients is required. The client must enable the connection to the license server when requesting access to the software.
