License Explain

OM Digital Solutions use a selection of licensing models to simplify the use and installation of products. Please see the sections below for more information on the licensing models available…

Standalone Single User

A paper license slip is supplied with each recorder and transcription kit, the license key is required at point of a Standalone installation.
The license slip style varies depending on the product, but typically includes both Windows and Mac license keys.
If you need to purchase additional licenses then please contact your Olympus dealer.
Please DO NOT discard the license slip!
Replacements cannot be issued free of charge.
The license key used will determine the software module installed, either Dictation or Transcription.
You can use our License Key Checker to check the type of key you have.

Olympus Volume License (OVL)

A volume license (multi-user license) is issued in exchange for paper license slip(s). If you need to purchase additional licenses then please contact your Olympus dealer or locate a dealer here.
An OVL can be used to install the Olympus software in Standalone or Workgroup mode.
By installing the Olympus software in Workgroup mode, you can benefit from an automated license distribution (via a central license manager).
Please note for ODMS R7, the SCP license is required for centralised management and virtualisation support (Terminal Services, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop and VMware) when installing the Olympus Software in Workgroup mode. The SCP license will also operate as a volume license.
To obtain an SCP license you will need to contact your Olympus dealer to purchase and arrange this for you.

System Configuration Program (SCP)

The SCP license is required for centralised management and virtualisation support (Terminal Services, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop and VMware).
You will need to contact your Olympus dealer to purchase and arrange this for you.

Note: Only the ODMS Release 7 licenses are eligible for exchange for a volume license any other software licenses won't be accepted. Volume licenses are only available for Windows installations, unfortunately there are no volume licenses for Mac installations.

  • Check common locations twice. You'll be surprised how many calls we receive where customers have lost their key then call back 15 minutes later stating they have found it. 
  • If you require your key because you are installing software to a new computer, check your old computer. If the software is still installed and the computer is accessible, you can often recover the key by opening the software and clicking Help > About or by going into the PC registry.

  • If you have lost your license, the only way to obtain a new one is to purchase a replacement. For information on this, please contact us.

Feel free to use our License Key Checker. Or you can use our License Key Guide, which shows you how to identify the different software versions and variations by the use of the license key.

Lifetime means for the lifetime of the product.

For example, our ODMS R6 users enjoyed six years of free updates, and even after we stopped development, the software was theirs to keep and use; no reoccurring subscription cost or service cuts.

The page only applies to currently supported, desktop software. Use this page to check support status on a version of software.

  • (The Olympus Dictation Delivery Service is a yearly subscription based platform)
  • A Machine License is for single use and can only be installed to one computer at any one time.
  • A Concurrent User License allows you to install the application to as many computers as you require. The number of users who can access the system at the same time is determined by the number of licenses purchased. Each paper license key permits one concurrent user. This license model is particularly useful if a user uses both a desktop PC and a laptop.

Yes our current Olympus software is concurrently licensed, so this will let you install the software on another PC using the same license however, the software can only be open on one PC at a time.

No it is free of charge, provided that you have all the individual paper licenses to exchange for a volume license. 

  • Yes, you can upgrade the previous generation volume license however, there is a cost to the upgrade.
  • Depending on your budget you can choose to upgrade all the licenses or a certain amount of licenses.
  • If you utilise the administration tool then you will also need to purchase the upgrade for the administration tool to centrally manage the new software.

You can run the installation in standalone mode using the volume license key. Alternatively this can be deployed please see our guide on Deploying ODMS silently with a volume license key.

You will need to purchase additional licenses or Olympus premium kits which includes licenses from your Olympus dealer. Then you need to fill in the upgrade request form and exchange those licenses to add to your existing volume license.
