A Desktop Order Entry System user (also referred to as a Desktop user) represents each individual logon to the Desktop Order Entry System.  The number of DOES users that can concurrently use Mobileezy is controlled by your Mobileezy software license.  This number of users is referred to as your Desktop user license count.

A desktop user is required for each person that will need to logon to Desktop Order Entry System.
