3 reasons to use licensed software

Advantages of licensed software

The issue of software piracy in Ukraine has been topical since the appearance of the first PCs. Back then, computers were already being used in regional centers, while software representatives were opening their offices only in the capital. People didn’t have access to legal products, and those who did were put off by high prices. This availability factor played a crucial part in the way Ukrainian users treat licensed software these days. Buying licensed products is not common practice, as it is easier to simply download a pirated copy or to buy it off pirates themselves, i.e. those who copy and spread unlicensed software. Some users may even be unaware that the program they use is an illegal copy. This can also happen. Pirated software vendors usually don’t disclose the origins of the products they sell.

It’s been 20 years since the beginning of Ukraine’s computerization. The situation has changed: nowadays licensed software can be bought in a just few clicks over the Internet, it is cheap, and there are watchdog agencies performing license checks.

We have pinpointed three major benefits that licensed software provides.

1. It is comfortable. Have you got a question? Does your employee need a consultation? Has there been a force majeure? Should the need arise, support specialists will instruct you or connect to your device and solve any problem you might have remotely. No need to wait for days for a specialist to arrive at a specific hour. Your call is always welcomed – you’re paying for this. ULTRA has 24/7 support, as is the case with most of the developers. Pirates don’t provide such services.

2. It is safe. Software is a complicated system. It’s possible to secretly hide a virus or a destructive program within it. Licensed software guarantees data safety, things like these won’t happen with it. Developers are legally responsible for the quality of their services. A pirated copy is unprotected. What can possibly happen? The list of scenarios is long, but the three main ones are your personal data theft, its modification without your consent or the complete data wipe along with the operating system itself.

3. It is legal. The use of unlicensed software provides for liability: civil, administrative and even criminal. By using licensed software you’re making sure that you’ll have a clear record with watchdog agencies and a clear conscience to boot.

Software market situation will continue to change to benefit the consumer even more: the prices will keep dropping, while the high quality of service will become mandatory for every company. The market is shifting towards the client and it is a positive trend: all of us are someone’s clients after all.
