Switch between using single user license and concurrent use license in the software

Golden Software provides its customers with two distinct licensing options: concurrent use and single user. The single user license is designated for one specific individual, allowing them to use the software on a maximum of two computers. In contrast, the concurrent use license permits multiple users to access the software, but only a set number can use it simultaneously, based on the number of licenses purchased. This article will guide users on how to seamlessly transition between a single user license and a concurrent use license, ensuring flexibility and efficiency in their software usage.
