With Zentitle, we've introduced this new concept we call linger.
And what linger does is, in a concurrent use model, So a floating or concurrent license model sometimes the software vendor wants to license applications that have very short run time. So think products like compilers or linkers, anything that runs in fairly quick succession.
Now, it can be very flexible to have a floating current license model against that type of application. But given it's such short lived, you can typically satisfy a large number of users making use of that application with a relatively small number of concurrent licenses.
What linger does is allows the software vendor to put a minimum required amount of time against a licensed checkout for that product. So for example, let's say a compiler only runs for about thirty seconds.
Well, the vendor could say This policy for this particular customer is that we're gonna have a minimum amount of time for a license to be checked out of, say, five minutes, or an hour, or whatever they choose. And that means that when the app checks out that license from the from the cloud or from the local license server, it will hold on to that seat for that minimum amount of time. The net effect of this from a software vendor standpoint is that you get kind of fairer compensation.
For that concurrent use license because you're not giving away a huge amount of concurrent use for a relatively low price.
