Golden Software Announces Strater Network Licensing for Well Log, Borehole, and Cross Section Plotting

New License Options Provide Flexibility for Organizations of Any Size.

Golden, Colorado, March 27, 2018 – Golden Software, LLC, the leading developer of affordable scientific graphics software, announces the immediate availability of concurrent-use licensing for Strater® version 5, a powerful well log, borehole, and cross section plotting program.

The new concurrent-use license provides dynamic use and management options for Strater users. System administrators can track software usage and control access to the software while standardizing the software across their organization. Concurrent-use licenses maximize access to Strater while minimizing the cost to the organization.

"The new license model gives users greater flexibility when managing Golden Software licenses. Now, organizations of any size, from a one-(wo)man shop to a global enterprise can get the most from their software and their budget," said Golden Software CEO Blakelee Mills. "We are pleased to offer additional licensing options to best fit the needs of our users."

For users currently running single-user licenses of Strater, Golden Software is offering a trade-in credit for those wishing to convert to a concurrent-use license. "As providers of affordable software solutions, it only makes sense to provide an affordable solution for those wanting to transition to a concurrent-use license," said Mills.
