Autodesk's new plans for named users provide a range of administrative, support, and reporting capabilities for organizations of every size.

Autodesk is moving away from plans based on serial numbers and will instead be assigning each subscription to a named user. In other words, each Autodesk software plan will now be based on actual people. These new plans will deliver many new benefits now, and in the future, including:

  • Dedicated access for all employees whenever they need it. No more downtime because all of your licenses are in use.
  • New ways to optimize licensing costs. New named plans will allow you to have visibility into usage data, allowing you to make smarter investments for your company.
  • Plans for individuals, teams, and enterprises with dedicated or flexible software access, depending on how your company works.
  • You will no longer have to manage network servers or track anonymous serial numbers. And this is just the start of a more relevant user experience that includes more security features, additional support channels, a range of administrative capabilities, data insights, and integrated collaboration tools.

Standard Plan

The Standard plan is suited for smaller teams and individuals. Admins can improve their team’s uptime and productivity with the ability to easily invite and manage new users and assign or unassign access to products. The Standard plan comes with basic security features, several support options, and at-a-glance reporting—helping admins protect their project assets and providing valuable usage data to inform their purchasing decisions. The Standard plan has all the essentials to equip small teams with the administrative and support tools they need, at the right cost for their business.

Premium Plan

The Premium plan is well suited for medium sized teams. It includes all the essentials of Standard, plus added benefits for security, reporting, and automation to help companies focus on what’s most important—like ensuring their teams are equipped and on-schedule. Create automated workflows for on-boarding and managing new users with single sign on. Help protect projects, people, and minimize costly downtime with 24x7 live support. Take the guesswork out of planning, purchasing, and identifying power users with features like user-level reporting. Boost productivity with Premium and get days back in the month and dollars back in the quarter.

Is a Premium plan right for your organization? Here are a few questions to help you decide:

  • Are you frequently adding new users, but would like to save time by not having to manually create and assign access?
  • Would you like 24/7 support and faster response times?
  • Are you needing the additional security features of SSO?
  • Do you have employees or contractors based globally that you would like to purchase centrally for?
  • Is it difficult to optimize subscription licensing because you don’t know which users need product access?

If you’d like more flexibility, increased security, and easier user management for 50 or more subscriptions, then maybe it’s time to upgrade to a Premium plan.
