OpenLM supports OpenText (formerly Imagenation) license monitoring.

OpenText

OpenText (formerly Imagenation) is a Desktop software application for viewing and sharing files. It supports a wide variety of file formats, and is especially popular with CAD users and in the Energy industry. OpenText benefits its users by avoiding the need to purchase and consume expensive graphical imaging software. Instead, users can easily and dynamically share the actual information with multiple users worldwide.

OpenLM response

Having attended the ESRI petroleum conference in London this year (November 6-8 2014), our representatives have come up with the requirement to support OpenText license monitoring. It is our pleasure to inform you that OpenLM consequently added this license manager to our expanding portfolio of supported license managers. OpenText licenses can now be monitored and usage statistics can now be accumulated using OpenLM.
