It depends on where you’re located.
  • If you’re based in Germany and you purchase through our web shop, you will be charged VAT.
  • If you’re based in the European Union and supply us with a valid VAT number, you won’t be charged tax. However, if you don’t supply a valid VAT number, you will be taxed at the prevailing rate, and it will be up to you to claim back any tax paid.
  • If you’re outside of the European Union, you won’t be charged tax on your purchase.

If you are purchasing a license for yourself then you will only need to fill out the delivery address form. If you are purchasing a license for someone else, then you have to enter the delivery address of the end user and the billing address of your company. Otherwise, the end user will not be able to see or activate the license.

PLEASE NOTE! Be especially careful if you are purchasing the Consultant license, since this license is licensed per person and only one person is allowed to use it. Please be sure that you enter a correct delivery contact; otherwise the consultant will not be able to activate the Consultant license.

After the online purchase process is completed, the billing and delivery contact you entered will get an email with the login credentials needed to log in to the Acceleratio Customers page.

If you can’t find the email, please check your spam folder or contact our support team.

On the Customers portal you can find your order details, invoice, downloadable files, and license keys.

The W9 form is needed when a company from the United States wants to place an order online through our shop provider, cleverbridge USA.

The W8-BEN form is needed when a company from the USA wants to place an order directly through Acceleratio.

Contact us if you need either of these forms.

Partner Discounts

Discounts for our resellers are based on performance and sales. These discounts increase with the sales increase, and range from 5% to 25%.

Need a quote? Here is how it works:

  1. Send us an email requesting a quote, and specify the following information:

a) Your own (reseller’s) company name and address
b) The software name, quantity, and license edition. Please be sure to ask the end user for the number of servers or (if buying for SharePoint) find out the total number of production vs. non-production farms they have.
c) The end user name and email address, company name, and type of company (as we extend discounts to non-profits, government agencies, and schools).

  1. We send the quote to you, with your reseller discount and a link to a pre-filled shopping cart that includes that discount
  2. If you plan to purchase with a purchase order, please follow the steps for submitting a purchase order shown above.
  3. Be careful to enter the correct delivery and billing addresses. Since you are reselling the product and someone else will be using the product, be sure to enter the end user’s delivery address.

If you have registered your Consultant license during purchase with a generic email address (like support, sales, consultant, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) you will not be able to activate the license with that email. Please send us the personal email address of the employee who will be using the license at your company. Be sure to include the order reference number of the purchased license so we can enable activation.

PLEASE NOTE! Due to the Consultant license regulations, only one person can use this license for an unlimited number of farms. This is why we do not support activation with generic email addresses.

All minor and major releases, upgrades, patches and bug fixes are free if you have valid Software Assurance. If your Software Assurance expires, the renewal hasn’t been done in the assigned renewal period, and you decide to renew on a later note you will have to purchase a new license.

We strongly recommend that you maintain your Software Assurance to avoid having to pay for additional expenses.

SysKit is licensed per server; this includes Remote Desktop services, Citrix servers, Windows servers, Remote Desktop Gateways and workstations.

In other words, each physical or virtual server to be monitored requires a license. For example, if you or your customer have one physical and 16 virtual instances on a single physical server, and you want to monitor only virtual servers, you would need 16 licenses. If you want to monitor both physical and virtual servers, you would need 17 licenses because each instance requires another SysKit license.

SysKit is available as a single full-feature edition and different license packs can be bought for servers, workstations, or RD Gateway. Choose between the available packs or request a custom quote. Check out our pricing and licensing options here.

CloudKit 365 is licensed per Tenant/Year.
Office 365 tenant is a specific instance of the cloud service that your organization owns and manages when it signs up for a Microsoft cloud service such as Azure or Office 365.

A tenant is an instance of Office 365. It can be multiple Office 365 users who have a valid license in the tenant. For example, your organization owns and manages an Office 365 tenant and you and your colleagues are the Office 365 users.

We currently have 3 subscriptions available: Starter, Business, and Premium.

All editions are full featured, the difference between editions is in the number of Office 365 active users.

CloudKit 365 comes as a consultant subscription as well, named the Partner Subscription. One Partner subscription is valid for the maximum number of 5000 Office 365 users, spread across a maximum of 5 tenants. The number of snapshots is restricted to 35 for all tenants. The subscription is valid for a year. The Partner subscription is used only for consultants providing services to the third party companies. It’s not possible to add an individual in-house tenant to the consultant subscription. For monitoring the in-house tenant, new license type should be purchased and registered to the different email address.

Request a custom quote for a larger number of tenants. Be sure to provide the number of Office 365 users per every tenant.

There are 5 different SPDocKit editions: Farm, Consultant, Site, Team and Workstation.


The Farm license is purchased per SharePoint Farm and it covers an unlimited number of users. You can choose between a Production Farm or a Non-Production Farm license.

Acceleratio grants an equivalent number of free activations for each license + Software Assurance that is purchased. So, if you purchase a Farm License + Software Assurance, you will receive a total of 2 licenses, one license being free of charge. The additional license can only be used on a non-production farm.

If you have more non-production than production farms, then you can purchase additional non-production licenses at the cost of 50% of the production licenses.

The Consultant license allows one consultant to install SPDocKit on an unlimited number of farms for an unlimited amount of clients.

This license is tied to one consultant’s email address. If you have more consultants that want to use this edition, you would need to purchase additional licenses.

The Site license grants an unlimited number of SharePoint farms in a single location. It is ideal for customers with a large number of farms. It includes all of your farms: Production, UAT, QA, DEV, etc.

The Team license is great for SharePoint consultants teams, meaning it can be used by an unlimited number of SharePoint consultants and it also has an unlimited number of farms included.

The Workstation license is purchased per workstation. It allows you to manage permissions, view all the reports and it supports one SharePoint Online Tenant.

For a better understanding of each edition’s features, please see this table.

If you need help with purchasing process and choosing the appropriate SPDocKit license check SPDocKit licensing FAQ.

Over the years, we have developed a number of different tools, including four monitoring solutions for different platforms (Remote Desktop Services, Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, Windows servers, Remote Desktop Gateway servers, and workstations). Having a variety of products for different platforms was great, but we wanted to combine everything into a single powerful server monitoring console. That is how SysKit was born. Read more about it here.
