Software

Time is relentlessly moving forward, but the question of which software to use, licensed or not, continue to be relevant. Today, an increasing number of companies in Russia and the CIS countries are switching to licensed software. It happens because of the ever-increasing number of lawsuits won by software companies and lost contracts due to lack of a software license. Illegal use of the software, even unintentional, exposes your company to various risks and painful surprises.

Use of the licensed software strengthens your company’s image and reputation as a serious and reliable partner, providing you with tangible economic benefits.

POTENTIAL RISKS OF USING UNLICENSED SOFTWARE

If a company has lean business processes and its information infrastructure functions properly, usage of unlicensed programs may cause the following problems:

  • constant minor system malfunctions at users’ workplaces, which leads to a decrease in productivity;
  • critical system malfunctions in general;
  • law enforcement checks, computer seizures, resulting in long downtime and penalties;
  • possible leakage of confidential information;
  • loss or corruption of data or databases, for example in terms of accounting;
  • reputation risk which can face the company: loss of good will in the eyes of partners and investors, in particular foreign investors.

PROBLEMS THAT UNLICENSED SOFTWARE CAN BRING TO THE COMPANY

  • Legal responsibility. Infringement of intellectual property rights incurs administrative and criminal liability in accordance with the law of the Russian Federation «On copyright and related rights».
  • Significant reduction in data security. Unlicensed or pirated copies of software may contain viruses. As a result, you may suffer from leakage of confidential information via the Internet, serious malfunctions or irreparable loss of information.
  • Software incompatibility. Use of unlicensed software may result in incompatibility of some programs that interact seamlessly on licensed platforms.
  • Lack of support and maintenance services. Users of unlicensed copies of software products cannot use service packs and technical support services provided by software producers.
  • Loss of good will. Use of unlicensed software often leads to loss of trust and contract termination. Legal proceedings, which are increasingly caused by the use of unlicensed software, do not strengthen company’s position in the market as well.

All problems related to the use of unlicensed software that have been mentioned above lead to a significant loss of time, and, consequently, to huge financial losses. In order to avoid such problems, you are highly recommended to buy licensed software.

BENEFITS OF LICENSED SOFTWARE

RELIABILITY AND SECURITY

Reliability of software can have a direct financial impact on your business as failure of information systems often leads to disruptions in the core business of an enterprise, which means a direct loss. Depending on the scale of the company’s activity, several hours of downtime may significantly exceed expenses incurred on purchase of licensed software. Use of licensed software is the main criterion of sustainable operation of the company’s information structure. Software producers guarantee quality of their products: licensed software disk can be read on any computer, it is virus-free and contains an original program code.
