For companies with more than one user, a One-time Fee, Floating license is the most common approach selected by DISCUS customers (more than 80% of DISCUS users have selected this approach).  Smaller companies that want an entry-level price with the least amount of up-front cost tend to go for Subscription, Node Locked.

For floating licenses, DISCUS offers tremendous flexibility to suite your needs.  You can learn more at the Licensing Flexibility page.
