We are li-x, Europe's first software exchange for used volume licences. With a dedicated team of licence pros, web developers, sales and communications employees, we created li-x to revolutionize the trade with used software. Since there are no intermediaries, companies earn and save more money when dealing on li-x. At the same time, li-x offers maximal legal security. Prior to every sale, we validate the licences' transferability. Only after the chain of title has been documented completely and all legal prerequisites have been met, we release the licences to the market.
We began developing li-x in November 2013. Since March 2014, the online platform is open to companies. In April, li-x received the 'innovation IT award' from the Initative Mittelstand (competition for mid-sized companies), earning third place in the category internet services. Today, more than 600 companies from more than eleven european countries are trading used software licences on li-x.
