The way you buy and access your Autodesk software is changing
Autodesk is gradually transitioning new software purchases for their products to subscription only options. It is important to know that:
- Autodesk is making changes to their licensing model.
- The changes are beneficial, offering you additional licensing options
- CADsoft is here to help you understand what these changes are and plan accordingly.
What is changing?
Effective January 31, 2016, Autodesk will discontinue selling new perptual (standalone or network) licenses of most individual (non-suite) products. New Desktop Subscription licenses for these products will be available as multi-year, annual, quarterly, or monthly plans. Active Maintenance Subscription agreements on previously purchased perpetual licenses will continue to be renewable.
What this means to you:
Any company or individual who wishes to purchase new software licenses of the standalone (non-Suite) products after Jan 31, 2016, will only have the option to purchase as Desktop Subscription or as a network subscription option.
