If I purchase the full version of Simfox Net, how will it be structured and implemented into my company’s training procedures?

•    Server License

You will be required to purchase a server license. The server will contain the database of item and bag images, session results and statistics.

The server license comes with a free Instructor License which allows you to connect to the Server from any computer through a browser (i.e. Internet Explorer).

The instructor license gives you access to the Teacher Menu where you can edit the image database, build bags, create sessions, send them to your students and review their results and statistics.

•    Additional Instructor License

If you want several users to access Teacher Menu from different computers concurrently, you will need to purchase additional Instructor Licenses

•    Student License

You will be required to purchase Student Licenses that connect to the server allowing students to access the x-ray simulator from a browser. Here they can carry out the sessions sent to them at any time. The number of student licenses limits the number of concurrent users. So if you purchase 5 student licenses, only 5 students will be able to use the simulator at the same time.
