Worry-free Hosting

Entitlement management is crucial to your business. You cannot afford lengthy downtimes due to system upgrades and outages. Poetic SaaS helps eliminate those worries with virtual servers and Microsoft-backed hosting. Worried about other entitlement management issues?


Pay for only the services you need ...


Platform configuration, custom reporting product and customer masters are all part of the core module of Poetic. Included in this is a sophisticated background job processor to help ensure that your entitlement system runs smoothly even when millions of entitlements are being updated, created and managed.


The Registration/Activation module is perfect when you have a simple product that you want customers to register or activate before they use it. Collect their contact information and collect actionable marketing data.

Advanced Activation

This module allows you to include technical licensing (requiring a unique key in order to use an application or access features) with your software product. Whether you developed your own technology or use an off-the-shelf key generator, Poetic can ensure that customers provide all of the necessary information before getting a key to use your software. Whether your application is simple or a little more complicated (perhaps it requires several licensed applications to run together in a specific configuration) or needs to be deployed in a hundred locations at once, Poetic's Advanced Activation module has the tools you need. Generate one key or thousands of keys at one time using a sophisticated "Batch Activation" process. Ensure that purchased configurations are deployed appropriately with Poetic's flexible "Activation Validation Sets."

Upgrade & Renewal

When you need to manage update distributions to your customers, you need a proven, configurable application. Poetic has a time-tested feature that allows you to define and execute scheduled upgrade jobs with a full range of selection criteria. With it you can automatically perform upgrade actions to notify users, flag eligible licenses, generate new activation keys, replace old product entitlments with new products and generate fulfillment orders. The upgrade mapping features allows for complex multiple products to multiple products configurations with the ability to generate new keys and send them directly to effected users.

Channel Integration

Poetic was built with your channel in mind. It includes support for channel tier security roles, linking channel partners to individual entitlements and limiting channel users' access to customer data. Each channel partner can have a customized look and feel for their portal as well.

Subscription & Usage

Manage your recurring revenue streams and IoT offerings with Poetic's Subscription and usage module. This module gives you access to a plugin API for processing orders with external systems for payment, tax, inventory, shipping and invoicing services, a UI widget and REST API for external portal integrations and a web service API for subscriptions and usage data. This module supports time-, count- and delivery-based subscription models and can be configured to automatically generate recurring invoices or delivery orders. It includes functions to help you monitor and enforce usage data upload rules and aggregate usage data for recurring invoice generations.


Control access to your digital downloads with the Poetic ESD module. Limit access to users with entitlements or open access up to everyone. It supports plugin API's to external ESD storage providers. Simplify your process for delivering digital updates or documents to your customers.

Order Management

Need to automate pricing and creation of orders based on entitlements already owned by your customers? Perhaps you want to offer a pro-rated upgrades, subscriptions or add-on purchases. Maybe you need to do all that with reseller-dependent pricing. Lean on Poetic to help you do it all. Combine your product pricing with Poetic's detailed entitlement information to create custom pricing and orders.
