The Challenge

For the launch of its new OMNIS product line, a titration platform for chemical laboratories, Swiss Metrohm AG required a protection system to safeguard the know-how invested in its software and a flexible licensing system that would allow for the creation of customized software licensing models for its laboratory instruments. One specific requirement posed by the company was the necessity to integrate the licensing and entitlement solution seamlessly with the company’s existing back office systems.

The Solution

CodeMeter, the flagship technology from Wibu-Systems, allows Metrohm to protect its software application both on PCs and the embedded operating systems running in its analytical devices and to equip them with the same licensing technology. CodeMeter License Central Internet Edition, Wibu-Systems’ server solution for generating and delivering licenses, helps create, manage, and track license activations on both types of systems.

By opting to integrate CodeMeter into its OMNIS platform, not only has Metrohm introduced strong protections for its know-how against counterfeiting and reverse engineering, but they can also use the versatile interfaces of CodeMeter License Central to set up a comprehensive portal, activate and track licenses, and monitor license use and activation in the field.
