SoftCafe offer software designed to meet the needs of the restaurant and catering industry. The company was founded in 1994 and was the first company to offer Menu Software that featured one-click menu design and the 'menu style' concept, which let users switch entire menu designs with a single click. Since then their business has grown to include website building and scheduling software, all specifically designed for the catering industry. Now thousands of restaurants and catering professional from around the world rely on their software every day.
As the business grew SoftCafe’s founder Scott Tyburski knew that they needed to put a more effective licensing system in place. In a software start-up situation sophisticated licensing solutions are generally the last thing on anyone’s mind. Business owners might buy a cheap wrapper solution or put something together themselves. As the business grows and developers start to realize that they need more sophisticated your copy protection. There can be a tendency, for software developers, to want to write your own solution.
Scott quickly realized the potential pitfalls of taking this route:
"Being a small software company, we did indeed consider writing our own piracy protection and hosting our own code database. But we quickly realized that going this route would be a distraction from our core business. The exercise would probably end up eating huge amounts of time, both in the initial development and the ongoing support. We would be "reinventing the wheel" and in all likelihood any solution we devised ourselves wouldn’t match up to what is already available on the market."
So Softcafe set out to find a licensing solution.
After looking at a number of options they settled on Nalpeiron.
"We could see straight away that the service and support that Nalpeiron offers would easily be more efficient, less expensive, and most importantly, more reliable than anything we could come up with on our own."
Dealing with high volume software sales to the catering industry, ease of use, for both themselves and their end users, was just as important to Softcafe as strong security. They quickly saw that the Nalpeiron licensing solution offered both these benefits:
"The ease of integration, flexibility, and ironclad security of the Nalpeiron Licensing Service, compared with using cheap wrappers, became evident just days after testing it."
Softcafe and their end-users have been enjoying the benefits of the Nalpeiron Licensing System for over four years now. CEO, Scott Tyburski sums up:
"We’ve now been with Nalpeiron for over 4 years and have no plans on switching – their products just do what they’re supposed to - for much less trouble and cost than doing it yourself".
The flexibility, ease of use and state of-the-art security offered by the Nalpeiron system have meant that Scott and his team have been free to concentrate on developing their software range, with no need to divert resources to licensing development, or licensing related support issues:
"At SoftCafe we take pride in delivering bug-free code and an easy-to-use end-user experience, and we wouldn’t trust the keys to that software to anyone other than Nalpeiron."
