Au­todesk aims ‘No Piracy’ with new sub­scrip­tion of­fer­ings

The DQWeek (Kolkata) - - FRONT PAGE - Visit: for com­ments

Alok Sharma, Chan­nel head, Au­todesk, In­dia told The DQ Week ,“Since the dis­counts have been an­nounced, we have reg­is­tered hype in num­ber of sub­scribers, re­sult­ing re­duc­tion of piracy and hop­ing no piracy at all. Au­todesk is cur­rently fo­cus­ing on ‘Main­tanace for sub­scrip­tion’, With a main­te­nance plan, the cus­tomer can have in­stant ac­cess to the lat­est prod­uct re­leases and en­hance­ments, can Stay cur­rent on the lat­est soft­ware and learn­ing ma­te­ri­als rather than wait­ing for ma­jor re­lease and can also Up­date soft­ware right away, or choose a time that is pre­ferred”.

For Au­todesk prod­ucts world­wide, the cur­rent sub­scrip­tion of­fer­ings al­low cus­tomers to ac­cess mul­ti­ple prod­ucts and to share li­censes just as cus- tomers could with per­pet­ual li­cens­ing. Why Au­todesk made these changes

The way Au­todesk de­sign and build is chang­ing rapidly, which also changes the tools used and the ways com­pa­nies and in­di­vid­u­als buy and ac­cess soft­ware. By sub­scrib­ing, cus­tomers re­ceive a sim­pli­fied cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence, en­joy lower up­front cost, and have the abil­ity to pay for Au­todesk prod­ucts and cloud ser­vices for the amount of time that is right for cus­tomers: monthly, quar­terly, an­nual, and multi-year term lengths (avail­abil­ity may vary de­pend­ing on re­gion or ac­cess type).

The sub­scrip­tion makes it eas­ier to ac­cess the soft­ware and stay up-to-date. Cus­tomers will be able to sub­scribe to an in­di­vid­ual prod­uct or a col­lec­tion of prod­ucts that can be used by a sin­gle-user or shared by mul­ti­ple users. Pro­vid­ing sub­scrip­tion of­fer­ings with flex­i­ble pack­ag­ing and li­cens­ing op­tions pro­tects the value of cus­tomer’s ex­ist­ing in­vest­ment in au­todesk tech­nolo­gies.

Au­todesk has also re­cently an­nounced the lat­est ver­sion of its flag­ship Com­puter-Aided-De­sign (CAD) soft­ware, Au­toCAD 2018.
