CALUMO User License Types in Simple Terms

Filter By Topic


Other software vendors' license models confuse and trick buyers. Our competitors' terms and conditions can be tricky - and we know that can lead to expensive mistakes. You'll need to navigate the complexity with a plasma charged sextant.

CALUMO, on the other hand, simplifies licensing. We only have two users types to make your life easy.

The two user types are: Office Users, and Web Users.

Office Users receive access to the Excel, Word and PowerPoint Add-in.  The add-in to Excel enables them to modify, save, and refresh reports on the portal or Excel.

Web Users get web only access to CALUMO. They can export to PDF and Excel, but the Excel workbooks don’t have links back to the CALUMO Data Server.

Both user types can perform drill downs for analysis purposes, change data, and refresh data. Office Users can drill in Excel; Web users can’t. Web users can only drill in web reports and web input templates.

CALUMO security determines who is a read-only user and who can do write backs. So either user type (Office or Web) can be read only or read and write. Also, CALUMO security determines who an administrator is.  This means an Office user or a Web user can be an administrator if required.

Here is a table to help describe the options for each user type.
