    I attended the Roadshow in Austin and am very excited about your Contributor tool. The VP of our Engineering dept. likes the idea, too, but wonders if we can use floating licenses (CALs) that Engineering could share, or does each reviewer need his own license?

    Hi Karla, thanks for the comment. MadCap does in fact offer a multi-user license key for MadCap Contributor that allows any specified number of installs. If you contact your sales rep, they can help you out as these are only available based upon request.
