You may be asking yourself, what exactly does co-terming licences mean?
If you purchase and activate content management software licenses (in this example Signagelive licenses) at different dates over a course of time you will have different expiration dates across your network. Once you purchase a Signagelive term license (or most other CMS license), the clock on the license does not start counting down from the date of purchase; but rather once you have activated the license on your preferred device. As your network grows and you activate licenses over time, you may end up with a network with players expiring on different dates. If this is the case with your network, you then need to make sure to renew your licenses at different times throughout the year. This can be time consuming and make it difficult to budget your digital signage portion on an annual basis.
An easier option the ability to renew all of your subscriptions at the same time, which is where the concept of co-terming licenses came from. Co-terming involves purchasing term and monthly licenses in order to adjust your subscriptions so that they all come up for renewal at the same time.
