Thank you for your interest in our Workgroup (SQL Express) and Enterprise (SQL Server) platforms.
Our Workgroup and Enterprise platforms are bundled with 5 workstation (user) licenses and 1 production server. Additional licenses are available.
Our End User License Agreement, EULA (click for full text) allows for:
"Our SQL Express and SQL Server platforms are designed for multi-user access with remote storage capability. Our SQL Express and SQL Server platforms are licensed to each have one Server in production at a time. Testing, disaster recovery and other non-production servers are allowed under this license. Additional production servers require additional licenses. Users at separate locations under separate user administration require additional licenses.
All installations require an authentication process with Treasury Software.
SOFTWARE is expressly prohibited from being installed on a web server (or accessed by one), or from any computer which is accessed by non-employees via the Internet."
Sample scenarios on acceptable license usage:
Q: Our Controller has licensed the software and shown us how to use it with our payroll account (we're in the Payroll Dept). Now the Accounts Payable Department wants to also use it. The A/P Dept is on the same floor as us and would use the same SQL Server. Can we use one of our extra workstation licenses for the A/P department?
A: Yes. It appears that you've met all of the conditions.
Q: We are a small CPA firm and my employees use the software for a number of our client's accounts. Is this allowable?
A: Yes, as long as your staff is working on the software. The ownership of the bank accounts are irrelevant.
Q: In the scenario above, what if I wanted to put the software on AWS or Azure and have the clients each access the software independently?
A: This would be expressly prohibited as the users of the software would not be your employees, and they would not be at one location with one administrative group.
Q: We have been using the software on one SQL Server in NY. We now have a new division in California and we wanted to connect the California users to the NY server, but our IT department doesn't have the infrastructure. They said it would be easier to simply install a new SQL Server in California. We are all in the same company. Can they use our license?
A: Unfortunately, you would not be able to use the license on a second server. A new license would need to be issued for the second server to become activated. Please contact our licensing department.
