Switching Autodesk Subscriptions

What you need to know about switching your Autodesk subscriptions.

And secure discounted pricing on the software most important to you1

When it’s time to renew your maintenance plan, you’ve got options.

Take advantage of a special offer to switch subscription

At time of renewal, you can choose to move to subscription for the same cost as your maintenance plan renewal—or switch to an industry collection at a special price. When you switch, you can secure your discounted subscription price for up to three years.1 As long as you continue to renew, you’ll enjoy special pricing, which will be lower than maintenance plan renewal pricing, and far below the cost of purchasing a new subscription.

Switch to an Autodesk industry collection under the same special offer

Do you use more than one Autodesk product? If so, you should think about subscribing to one of our industry collections—a great way to access the tools you need for the work you’re doing.

Not ready to switch? We’ve got you covered

If the timing to switch to subscription doesn’t work for you now, you can switch next year or the year after—or not at all, and remain on maintenance. 

As your renewal approaches, make sure to discuss these options with us so you can make the decision that works best for you and your business.

Have questions?

How do I get this offer?

When your maintenance plan comes up for renewal, you will have 3 options (applies to most individual products for eligibility upgrades to Collections):

  • 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

Hagerman & Company can walk you through your options and help you switch. 

What are the benefits of switching from maintenance to subscription now?

The price to switch will increase 5% in 2018 and another 5% in 2019, so the earlier you switch to subscription, the less it will cost. Also, switching to subscription brings you:

  • The convenience of charging subscription cost annually to projects;
  • Frequent product updates that you can decide when to consume;
  • More convenient support including “schedule a call” for faster engagement times;
  • Simpler administration of software when standardizing products on subscription;
  • You can turn on and off subscriptions based on your project peaks and valleys.

After I switch to subscription, can I continue to use the same software version I was using on my maintenance plan?

Yes, in most cases, you will be able to continue to use* versions of software downloaded and activated under your maintenance plan. These versions will now become part of your subscription entitlements. Additionally, you will have access to subscription previous versions per the Subscription Previous Version Eligibility List.

* Subject to compliance with certain conditions and limitations, and not possible in some countries.
