Has anyone on this forum started to get pushback from the money men regarding Autodesks move to subscriptions? We currently run mostly AutoCAD LT with a few copies of AEC pack from our Revit trial that never got downgraded. I went to the chairman to present Revit again as an option for moving the company forwards to now catch up with the rest of the industry and I got no further than the 5th slide (I started with the costings to avoid nasty shocks) and he shut the presentation down saying he isn't going to pay >£200k per year for software, up from £25k. Are any other companies looking at alternative CAD BIM software to Autodesk?
Well the time has come, our maintenance subscription renewal is coming up and AutoDesk has marked up the maintenance cost and dropped the subscription cost to where it is a no-brainier to switch. I will only save $300 this year to switch but next year my maintenance will jump 40% and no increase for subscription for next year and no more than 5% going forward per year. So next year I save $1,238. Alas I see no logical reason NOT to switch. The plus side is the increase of software available to me and my users.
Hello, I have been reading quite a bit online and I am now directing my question to this forum. I am considering 'paying' for a subscription to AUGI. I use civil 3d almost exclusively and would like to know if any others either have a membership or could provide information on membership benefits. Please note, I do donate to this site to support it and will continue to do so. Thanks for any and all input Phil
JGA posted a topic in Software & LicensingI am gobsmacked that Autodesk have the cheek to require customers to pay a sum on top of the subscription fee for obtaining an update in their software. Subscription licenses are costing organisations thousands of pounds annually, but still ask for more money to obtain the software! The installers are now in the 10's of Gb's. Surely from a customer relations exercise, it makes sense to swallow the cost of the media & postage?
