Field Information Manager license ordering

Get an overview about the different Field Information Manager editions and find information on how to order

It is important to recognize that installation of the tool is separate from licensing. Installation is never prevented due to lack of licensing. However, appropriate license is required in order to use the advanced features.

The license is dependent on the MAC address of one of the adapters of the system in use. The Field Information Manager software provides a list with available adapters in the Options Menu - License Handling.
