Flexera Software was Acresso Software was Macrovision was GLOBEtrotter

Under a legal threat from another software firm (ERP software maker Agresso Software) with a similar name, Acresso Software Inc. is changing its name to Flexera Software after just 19 months.

I actually thought about this similarity when I heard about the new name Acresso the first time so it is no big surprise considering that Agresso is such a larger company too the smaller Acresso don’t want to go into that fight.

Flexera Software sells software such as its installation utility  InstallShield, and software license manager FlexNet Manager and FlexNet Publisher (FlexNet/FLEXlm), to software vendors and enterprises.

Notice also the change from FLEXnet Publisher to FlexNet Publisher. This indicates we should start to use FlexNet now instead of FLEXnet when we refer to the software that are FLEX enabled like AutoCAD.

PS. For an alternative to FlexNet Manager take a look at JTB FlexReport.
