Switch your Maintenance Plan to Subscription

   Save Now & Switch

Beginning in June of 2017, at renewal time, you will be able to move your Autodesk products, currently on a maintenance plan, to a subscription license. The cost to switch will be the cost of 2016 maintenance plan renewal pricing, plus 5%. Due to the notable increases expected in the maintenance price renewals over the next three years, this represents a significant cost savings. This offer is available exclusively to our current maintenance plan customers.

Subscription changes for Autodesk customers with Maintenance Plans

 

Autodesk believes that subscribing is the best way for their customers to get the greatest value from their tools and technologies – and will fundamentally change how they deliver extended capabilities and new functionalities through connected services.

Beginning in June 2017, customers with eligible products on maintenance will have the ability to easily switch to a subscription at the time of renewal for a discounted price.

Customers can take advantage of this offer once per seat of a product on maintenance. The price to switch will increase 5% in 2018 and another 5% in 2019, so the earlier customers switch to subscription, the less it will cost. In addition, because managing two business models (subscription and maintenance plans) is quite costly, in order to continue supporting maintenance plans, beginning May 7, 2017, maintenance plan renewal prices will increase by 5% in 2017, 10% in 2018, and 20% in 2019.

When your maintenance plan comes up for renewal, you will have 3 options:

  • Switch an eligible individual product on maintenance to a subscription of the same product
  • Switch an eligible individual product or suite on maintenance to an industry collection subscription
  • Renew your maintenance plan for one year

If your maintenance plan expires before the 6th August, get in touch with us to take advantage of the lower renewal prices. Alternatively, if you would like to understand if/how these changes affect you, please get in touch with our Autodesk Renewal Specialists.
