Europe’s exchange for used software

Used Software

Even faster. Even more affordable. Even more secure.

Save up to 70%.

Market analysts recommend buying used software as this can significantly reduce a company’s expenditure on software. Those turning to used instead of new licences can ease the burden on their IT budget dramatically. Because software does not wear, has intrinsic value and comes equipped with the same functionalities it had the day it was first installed. In addition to the basic costs involved in procurement, your company’s maintenance costs can also be reduced considerably through standardisation.

Audit security by li-x. No risk for companies.

Only verified licences are traded on li-x: The first job of our legal experts is to make sure that the legally applicable framework conditions required for trading in used software have been fulfilled. Then our li-x Security+ Standards come into play. The licensing department looks after matters concerning the disclosure of the chain of title. They determine which contract the software originates from (incl. contract numbers), who the previous owners were, and also details of the update history. This information is carefully researched for each and every one of our licences and stored in the portal for our customers. This way we can be sure that you are buying legally sound used software licences on li-x, capable of passing any audit.
