Comparison of GraFit License Types

Single-user Versus Multi-User

GraFit 7 is available both in single-user and multi-user licenses. Multiple user licenses are advantageous in larger workgroups or organizations. A single multi-user software license is purchased which allows a far larger number of installations to be performed using the same activation code. In addition, there is a centralized mechanism to monitor and regulate the software use. Multi-user licenses come in a variety of sizes, and you can manage a collection of licenses via the the License Control Panel.

Note that multi-user licenses are purchased on a yearly subscription basis and need to be renewed at or before that time

Academic and Student Licenses

If you are in an academic (not-for-profit institution) you are eligible for discounted pricing by purchasing an academic license. These are functionally equivalent to the full commercial licenses and also come in single-user and multi-user form. In addition, we have a Student License which provides a low-cost entry to the GraFit program.

Note that Student licenses are for a 1-year subscription. At the end of that time you will need to purchase a new license in order to continue using the program.
