How to count number of license for abss multi-user version?
abss Premier Plus User Pack has two options: 2-user license and 5-user license. On the other hand, abss Premier User Pack has single-user license and 2-user license, to which additional user license may be added. For example, if you will have 3 computers to run abss Premier, you may purchase a abss Premier 2-user license version and then 1 additional license. Every abss Accounting may be installed on only 1 computer. If you would like to install it on any other computer, each computer with abss Accounting installed should have an additional license. For example, if you have 3 computers to run abss Accounting, you may buy 1 single-user license pack + 2 additional licenses. abss Premier Plus, abss Premier, and abss Accounting do not provide location or corporate licensing. Sufficient user license should be purchased according to number of computer.

Can users share abss data file?
abss Premier Plus and abss Premier allow data file sharing, i.e. different users can concurrently access or update data file of the same company. However, abss Accounting does not allow data file sharing.
How can abss data file be shared by different locations?
abss Premier Plus and abss Premier both support Terminal Service, which may be coupled with VPN connections to let users at different locations share abss data files.
Versions other than these two abss do not support Terminal Service. Sharing data files by different locations can be achieved through direct access over VPN connections, but slower access and less stable than Terminal Service performs.
abss Accounting does not support data file sharing, thus only one user at one time can open the data file even though multiple locations are connected.
