What is the difference between a site license and a single user license?

A single user can login anywhere with a supplied product key and password. Only 1 PC can be logged at any time. Site licenses do not require logging in, and allow every PC in a building/site to be logged in simultaneously.

Examples of locations utilising a site license include large schools running Auslan as a LOTE and utilising the site by class groups in computer labs. Univercity and TAFE campuses allowing access through all internet connected pcs on the campus. Government department buildings, with multipul staff, often on multiuple floors, all utilising the customisable creation options simultaniously to support clients.

An example of where bulk individual licenses are purchased instead includes the Tasmainia Education department, who have provided all Teachers of the Deaf with their own license so that they can access the site across multipul locations to support all their students at their individual schools. Anouther example is the Department of Education and Children's Services in SA, who have similarly provided all speech theapists with individiual lisences. These arangemets are negociated individually.
