Uniloc USA Inc., the leader in device-based authentication, today announced SoftAnchor™ Insight, the industry’s most powerful and accurate product usage and license reporting and analysis solution. SoftAnchor Insight provides actionable intelligence, driving greater publisher profitability by delivering aggregate metrics about actual software activation and usage. Uniloc is showcasing SoftAnchor Insight for the first time at the Software Industry Conference in Boston, July 17-19.
SoftAnchor Insight provides up-to-date statistics about actual license and software feature usage which delivers the most accurate results in the industry so that development, sales and licensing decisions can be made on facts and not assumptions.

Key capabilities of SoftAnchor Insight include:
• Industry’s first reporting of real piracy and casual copying activity;
• Comprehensive license reporting including activation, compliance, subscriptions and trial status to understand your business and drive conversion;
• Robust feature usage data to drive segmentation, packaging and pricing decisions;
