Steps to authorize PDFelement for business

It’s great that you have decided to get PDFelement for your business. You will get two versions in the package – ‘server’ for administrator control and ‘client’ for user interface. Here’s what you need to do to get it running:

Step 1: Customize PDFelement for Your Enterprise

First you have to scale the client according to your company needs. The developers at Wondershare will customize the software to meet the standards of the organization after getting necessary details from you. It is also essential to ensure security as the program will operate over company LAN.

Step 2: Download Server and Client of PDFelement

The full package containing the server and client version will be delivered to you. Both need to be installed on server and workstations respectively. You can utilize the deployment options to install it on user end. The manager then signs in with his email and registration code.

Step 3: Authorize PDFelement to Users

The administrator remains on control of the software authorization. When a user installs the program, the system sends an automated code seeking permission from the server. The administrator has the power to accept or decline the request depending on his choice. No one can use the program without proper authorization.
