How does smartphone connect to the server?

Through a simple internet connection (data packet or wifi).

What are the software license fees?

Nil, no license fees. You only pay a monthly subscription fee per site or vessel depending on features enabled, and fees for business transactions.

No server or software is required. The smartphone app is already bundled with a running hosting service. No additional costs.
