How do you define a “Single Center”?

AccuTrack, AccuSQL, and Accudemia are licensed per academic center.

What is a Center?

A center is an academic entity with a name, staff, supervisor, services, and location. Students visit the center to receive services from the center's staff.  They may visit virtually or in person, and they may visit on walk-in or appointment basis.

Examples of Centers:

Here are examples of academic centers using our software solutions:

  • Academic Support Center.
  • Learning Assistance Center (LAC).
  • Student Success Center.
  • Academic Learning Center.
  • Center for Student Success (CSS).
  • Student Tutoring Lab
  • Math Learning Center.
  • University Writing Center
  • Native American Center.
  • Advising center.
  • The Link Tutoring Center.
  • Language Lab.
  • Children Center.
  • Academic Center for Excellence.
  • Tutoring & Learning Services.

Why is this important?

Each center requires its own software license.  The license allows the center to be set up with its own staff, services, and business rules (e.g. open hours, appointment restrictions, welcome message, etc.).

I am using Accudemia in a large combined center.  Is this considered a one center?

A "center" in Accudemia has a known name and one physical location (room or building).  When set up in Accudemia, the center is entered in the system and it will have its own properties and settings.  Each center entered requires its own license.

I am using AccuTrack or AccuSQL in a large combined center.  Is this considered a "Single Center"?

Here is how we define a Single Center for the purpose of licensing AccuTrack and AccuSQL:

“Single center means one center with one name, and single location means one physical location (room or building). If you have a Single Center license, you may install the software on as many sign-in computers and administration computers as you like provided that all the installations are for a single location of a single center.”

To determine whether areas you have are considered a single center from licensing point of view, ask these questions:

  1. Do these areas have one and the same name (e.g. Math Learning Center)?
  2. Do these areas exist at the same room or building?
  3. Are these areas run by the same staff and boss?
  4. When you set up the sign-in stations at these areas in AccuTrack or AccuSQL, would all the sign-in stations use the same database with the same LabID?

If you answer yes to ALL 4 questions above, then the areas in question are considered one Single Center from licensing point of view.
