Autodesk Maintenance and Subscription Renewals
When you receive a renewal notice from Autodesk, always contact us first. Robotech’s support team can guide you thru the process to achieve the maximum benefit for your technology investment.
Autodesk is moving toward a single business model
We want to give you a clear picture of upcoming changes. Managing two different business models is costly and most would like the option of a single licensing environment. There is an equitable offer for your maintenance plan licenses to be switched to subscription–at a discounted rate that recognizes your Autodesk investment to date.
By switching to subscription, you will have:
- Latest and greatest product capabilities – Get access to Autodesk’s ongoing stream of innovation, updates to core products, cloud services for desktop products, and additional capabilities as soon as they are available, at no additional cost.
- Access to new industry collections – Available only through subscription, you’ll realize significant savings when you need two or more Autodesk software products.
- New and improved support – Enjoy faster response times and the option to receive help by scheduling a call with Autodesk technical support specialists, as well as direct level one support from Robotech.
- Simplified administration – Access tools that streamline deployment and software management
Switching from maintenance to subscription
Most products on maintenance can be easily switched to a subscription at the time of renewal for a discounted price. You can take advantage of this offer once per seat of a product on maintenance. The price to switch will increase 5% in May 2018 and another 5% in 2019, so the sooner you switch to subscription, the less it will cost—giving you greater savings compared to waiting to move or staying on maintenance. As long as you continue to renew, you’ll also be able to secure discounted pricing for up to 3 years. This price is a fraction of the cost of a new subscription.
Changes to maintenance plans
It’s expensive and complicated to manage two business models. It makes more sense to switch to subscription, both in terms of longer-term cost savings and added value that will be provided exclusively to subscribers. Beginning May 7, maintenance renewal prices will increase by 10% and 20% in 2019. To mitigate these increases and enjoy the benefits of subscribing sooner, consider moving to a subscription at the time of renewal.
