V.i. Labs Webinar to Discuss Best Practices for Tracking and Managing Piracy with the Cloud

V.i. Labs will host a free webinar for independent software vendors (ISVs) on leveraging the cloud to track the use and misuse (piracy) of their applications.

Waltham, MA, December 11, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The leading software intelligence solutions provider, V.i. Laboratories, Inc. (“V.i. Labs”), will discuss how small and mid-sized software vendors can overcome competitive differences by leveraging the cloud to gain detailed insight into how their applications are being used or misused by customers. By bringing its award-winning software intelligence solutions to the cloud, V.i. Labs has leveled the playing field for these software vendors, whose solutions rival those of larger competitors but often lack the tools or resources to obtain this level of usage reporting.

Victor DeMarines, vice president of products for V.i. Labs, will highlight best practices and case studies on using software intelligence to make data-driven decisions on product development, market strategy, and piracy revenue responses.

During this free webinar, attendees will learn how they can:
· Focus on the most qualified prospects and users of trial downloads to prioritize and streamline sales efforts;
· Measure feature adoption and use to make data-driven product development decisions;
· Identify the organizations that are using unlicensed versions of the software to increase license revenue.
