PowerCom Tie to Base License Management


The tie to base, or base station license, is our most popular and default license version. The tie to base license includes the license number printed directly on the base station. It will be the easiest option for users looking to activate their system on multiple computers. Just plug in the base station and enter the license number printed on the side!

PowerCom is committed to continuous development and innovation with the goal of maintaining our reputation as the most cutting-edge and sophisticated Audience Response System producer on the market. We are constantly striving to integrate user suggestions, increase functionality, and stay up-to-date with the newest versions of Microsoft PowerPoint, OS’s, and other PowerCom associated systems. Currently, we are dedicated to a fixed schedule of issuing a version upgrade about every two months!

PowerCom users with a tie to base license are entitled to one year of free license and software upgrades, and their existing licenses will never expire-presenters can continue to use their versions of PowerCom’s software indefinitely.

In order to enjoy the bi-monthly upgrades, however, (recent version update features include instituting complete functionality in eight languages, calculating and storing demographics, and other new features) PowerCom ARS users will need to update their licenses after their one year of free upgrades have expired.

(Note: The PowerCom tie to base license is only available since PowerCom V2.36.)
