Final Countdown to Upgrade Your Autodesk Software

Autodesk Desktop Subscription - Pay As You Go Software

Final Countdown to Upgrade Your Autodesk Software

Thinking about getting the latest software? Now is the time.

As of the end of January 2015 you will no longer have the ability to upgrade your software to the latest version unless you are on Subscription. After this date customers who are not on Subscription for such licences will have to purchase a new licence to get current.

So what are the benefits of Subscription?

Autodesk Subscription offers various ways to access the latest software as well as additional technology products and cloud services. This means that you can choose what works best for your budget, your people, and your projects.

Key benefits of adding Maintenance Subscription to perpetual licences:

  • Immediate access to the latest software releases
  • Flexible licencing rights with previous version use
  • Online one-to-one support.

Maintenance Subscription gives you an easy way to manage long-term investment of Autodesk products and helps you to keep upgrade costs lower.

Key Benefits of choosing Desktop Subscription:

  • Lower upfront costs than a perpetual licence
  • Choice between monthly, quarterly or annual licencing terms
  • Scalability to support short term projects or temporary workload increase

Desktop Subscription gives you a flexible choice to meet a variety of business and budget considerations, without an upfront investment.
