Digital Marketplace for Used Software

About us

We are your partner for used software.

li-x enables companies to quickly and easily utilise the potential of used software.

    • Geschäftsphilosophie Corporate Philosophy

li-x was developed for you. We have learnt what is important to our clients from over 10 years’ experience in trading used software: IT staff and resellers need to acquire software licences cost-effectively. You want access to the market for used software both while purchasing and while selling, with an eye for legal certainty and at minimal cost.

However, many vendors fulfil only a part of the requirements. The origin is often not revealed and you cannot be certain where the used licences come from – in the worst case they are academic licences from Asia that do not fulfil the requirements set by the rulings of the German Federal Court of Justice (BGH) and the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Objections during auditing and expensive relicensing result from the above.

That is why we founded li-x: our functions, customer service, and prices are exactly tailored to you if, aside from first-class products, you expect transparency and legal certainty.
It does not matter whether you want to purchase software for your company, governmental agency, or customers – we support you efficiently, at a fair price, and in your national language.


Since we launched in 2014, we have helped more than 4,200 business clients throughout Europe to save on licensing costs. – Why not make your company one of them too?
