Standalone Single User
A paper license slip is supplied with each kit and the key is required at point of each installation. The license slip style varies depending on the product.
Do not discard the license key as replacements for lost items will not be issued free of charge. The license key used will determine the software installed. For example, A Dictation Module key will install software orientated for the author and likewise, a transcription module key will be configured for the typist.
A volume license or multi user license is typically issued in exchange for paper licenses.
Server Application Licensing
ODMS server applications, System Configuration Program (SCP) and License Manager (LM) require license keys. These are supplied as part of the Administration Module.
Where can I find my license key?
The license key is found on a separate slip of green or blue paper or on a yellow label on the CD sleeve for older business range software.

For an Olympus Volume License (OVL), we advise that you have a suitable amount of users, roughly 5 Authors / 5 Typists, but we can generate an Olympus Volume license for less. An OVL is mandatory for a Workgroup installation of the Olympus software, the Workgroup tools are also needed (License Manager - LM and System Configuration Program - SCP), to obtain these, please contact us on the number below with the details on your environment so we can confirm this is compatible and advise you on the best way to setup the environment to ensure you have a fully functional system.
