Discover Surpac 2020 with new DSLS licensing

GEOVIA are proud to introduce the Surpac 2020.1 Release, complete with the new DSLS Licensing System.



Surpac 2020.1 provides the ability to take network licenses offline with a “soft lock” system that does not require a physical dongle/sentinel, which means that our new users can be up and running quicker with no need to wait for dongle shipment and no downtime to current users due to lost or damaged sentinels. This release also brings improvements to the GEOVIA Mine Contributor, GEOVIA Surveyor, GEOVIA Stope Optimizer and GEOVIA Mine Designer Roles.


Highlights of this release include:



The brand new licensing system now available to Surpac allows a greater flexibility for network licenses users.

  • Take licenses offline for up to 30 days (check in / check out).
  • Decrease risk of loss of network licenses using Failover Server Clusters.
  • No need of physical dongles.


*DSLS is available with the newly released Surpac Role.

**DSLS is currently available for New Surpac or MineSched Licenses or for Surpac or MineSched Licenses that migrate to Roles.

For more information on how to access DSLS and migrate to Roles, please contact your local GEOVIA representative.
