Value Added Resellers (VARs)

Value Added Resellers (VARs) license digitally based geographic information from us to create their value-added product. A value added reseller can utilise any of our datasets in conjunction with their own data or third party data to produce an end product, which is then sold or licensed to end-users.

For further information on how to become a VAR contact LPS as follows:

Distributors

Distributors license our datasets to their end-users on our behalf, receiving a 20 per cent discount on the standard list price. Distributors can then invoice their customer at a price of their choosing. Distributors do not alter or add value to the original data in any way – simply supplying it to end-users for their Internal Business Use.

For further information on how to become a distributor contact LPS as follows:

Innovators

The Innovator licence gives access to OSNI data for product development and demonstration purposes only. Our Innovator licence is designed to encourage development of new products based on our data. The Innovator Licence covers a 12 month period, at the end of which a developer may wish to upgrade to a Value Added Reseller Agreement.

For further information on how to obtain an Innovator Licence, contact LPS as follows:

Solutions Providers (SOL)

The Solutions Provider Licence is the newest form of licence released by LPS. This licence is aimed primarily at organisations who wish to provide products or services that are based on LPS data to a single customer. The SOL is similar to the Value Added Reseller licence but differs in that it only permits one single end user organisation to receive the Solution from the solutions provider.

For further information on how to obtain a SOL, please contact LPS as follows:

Licensed Partners

The upcoming Licensed Partner Programme (LPP) is designed to give partners an in-depth knowledge of LPS and OSNI products, build relationships with key personnel and create an atmosphere for working together for the benefit of customers. It will streamline the sub-licensing process making it easier for our partner network to work with our licensees.

For further information on licensed partners please use the contact details below:
