The problem is when there are no free licenses the function in ProIV doesn't run and the stuff doesn't get imported.
I'm sure others have come up against this and I'm wondering if there is any way around it without purchasing more licenses. The function in ProIV that runs only takes a second or two and immediately exits ProIV. I am only interested in legitimate ways of dealing with this.

Could you amend the "client task" to a process that moves the data (text files) to a server directory.
This would need the files to be uniquely named coming from many clients.
Then set up a service/con-job (hourly) on your server that kicks off pro-iv to import all of the files in the import directory. This way only 1 pro-iv licence required. you could monitor the import directory on the server to ensure that the "Client" files are being processed.
hope i understood your reuirement

I realize that this is looking at 'it from the bck end'; but, are there users that are simply logged in to the kernel, and just idle?
While it would be rude just to kick loose an idle user; doing so would open up a license.
There are some companies that take a dim view to a computer logged in with no one actively working on it. Quitely probe your client and see how they feel about that. A solution may be at hand.

Buy a single seat component license and get the cron job to run the process as a task. You can shield this license from interactive users via the config settings.
Would this solution work if two users needed to use the component license at the exact same time?

There's a parameter which can be configured when setting up the bus to specify a timeout limit on starting a new kernel to run a task. As long as this parameter is set to a higher value than the duration of the task, two simultaneous calls would be processed one after the other.
I've only worked with the java version of the bus, not the c version, but i'm assuming the same behaviour would apply to both.
