A Lite Licence is provided free of charge and allows the customer to develop and deliver exercises from a single exercise scenario that can be edited to suit.  Up to 15 injects can be played in an exercise.  There are no limits to the number of users.

An Enterprise Licence is a paid service, and provides much greater functionality including the ability to import exercises and users from spreadsheet templates, and the capability to store an unlimited library of scenarios and exercises within the system for re-use as many times as necessary.  Users can merge multiple scenarios to create much bigger exercises. The number of injects is unlimited.
