Autodesk: Multi-user subscriptions will be dropped in 2021

Press release 2020-02-26 10:41 article  > Software

Autodesk introduces changes in its licensing system.

On May 7, 2020, Autodesk is retiring plans based on serial numbers. New plans are designed for named users. Subscriptions with multi-user access and maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 and cannot be further renewed.

As part of retiring maintenance, the last version of the Design & Creation Suites will be released in April 2020 for customers to download, and the last date to renew Suites will be April 16, 2020.

Starting February 29, 2020, Autodesk will no longer sell new 2 or 3-year subscriptions with multi-user access or allow renewals. Starting May 7, 2020, Autodesk will no longer sell new annual subscriptions with multi-user access.

For customers who own a subscription with multi-user access or maintenance, at your first renewal after May 7, 2020, Autodesk will help in transition to a plan for named users through trade-in offers that keep costs consistent.

Standalone Maintenance trade-in offer (at first renewal, before May 7, 2021):

Trade-in one standalone maintenance seat for one standard subscription for one named user at a price similar to what you’re paying in 2019 for maintenance. Then, renew at an ongoing discount to 2028*.

If you do not take the trade-in offer, maintenance prices will increase by 20% on May 7, 2020. Subscriptions with multi-user access and maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 and cannot be further renewed.

For example, if you have 20 multi-user subscriptions, you can trade them in for 40 standard subscriptions for 40 named users at a similar SRP you’re paying today. Then, renew at an ongoing discount to 2028.
