Chronolator logo


Chronolator is licensed software. You can evaluate its features without having a licence, but the Chronology Documents it creates include a watermark on every page. If you do not want these watermarks to appear, you must purchase a Licence.

A license also entitles you to comprehensive free support by telephone and email, and to occasional training at minimal cost.


The Online Workbench is used to create Chronology Documents in which agencies enter their data. Single Case Licences apply to Chronology Documents created by Berrick Computing for customers who do not anticipate regular use of Chronolator and who do not require the flexibility provided by the Online Workbench.

How licences work

An Online Workbench licence is a small text file. When you open the Workbench, it reads the licence.

Chronology Document licences are held internally, being put there by the Online Workbench when they are created.

How long does a licence last?

Online Workbench and Single Case licences are valid for a period agreed on purchase.

Chronology Documents are licensed for up to 6 months from the day they are created, subject to a maximum of 1 month after the Online Workbench licence expires.

What happens when a licence expires?

You can continue to work with documents using the standard features of Microsoft Word™, but Chronolator features are disabled.

Review deadlines can sometimes slip, so Chronology document licences can be extended for up to 3 months at a time by entering a password, again subject to a maximum of 1 month after the Online Workbench licence expires.

What does a licence cost?

The cost of a licence is easily recouped by the time Chronolator saves. You might like to try the Chronolator Challenge to help estimate the cost benefits.

Please email for current prices.

How do I install an Online Workbench licence?

The licence is a small text file, usually supplied as an email attachment. To install it, simply save it into the same folder as the Online Workbench.
