The Core Licence includes all functions related to data entry, CATI, survey management, and tabulations; there are no separate modules for each application. There can be any mix of these applications to the limit of the user licence and this mix can change according to workload requirements. For example, the licence may be used by data entry clerks, coders and programmers during daytime shifts on weekdays but by CATI interviewers on evenings and weekends.
The Core Licence is priced by the number of users that may access DASH at any one time. The minimum number of users in a Core Licence is 1. Additional users may be added at any time and are priced at the difference between the previous level and the expanded level. Purchase of this licence is a one-time cost and ownership is permanent.
