Frequently Ask Questions (FAQ)

You will receive two separate confirmation emails shortly after completing your purchase – one from AIAG, and one from the software itself – detailing next steps.

Concurrent user licenses are based on the number of users simultaneously accessing the software. For example, a single concurrent user license means that only one individual can be logged into the software at any given time -- however, when that person logs out, another team member can log in with the same license. As such, this license structure allows teams to effectively share one or more licenses, providing more flexibility and value than traditional "named user" licenses or individual seats. 

The person in your company who purchases the first concurrent user license will automatically be the “License Holder” for all sales and billing purposes. Once that individual logs into the software, he or she will be able to add new users, admins, and locations.
