Autodesk: Transition to Named Users
Autodesk is retiring serial numbers and has launched new named user subscriptions.
From May 7, 2020, you can trade in your existing network (or standalone) maintenance plan and your multi-user subscriptions for corresponding single user subscriptions, at a cost consistent with what you pay today.
The new plans deliver many business benefits now and in the future, including:
- New ways to optimise your licensing costs by having visibility into your usage data.
- Dedicated access for all employees whenever they need it, wherever they are working – in the office or at home. No more downtime because all of your licenses are in use.
- Ability to tailor your support and learning content to employees based on insights.
- You will no longer have to manage your own network servers or track an anonymous serial number again.
Some plans are retiring.
Maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 and cannot be further renewed. Subscriptions with multi-user access will retire on August 7, 2021 and cannot be further renewed. Design & Creation Suite plans have already retired.
We will help you transition to the right new plan.
For customers who own a subscription with multi-user access or maintenance, at your first renewal after May 7, 2020, we will help you transition to a single user subscription through trade-in offers that keep your costs consistent today and predictable to 2028.
There are trade-in offers available for customers with multi-user access and maintenance subscriptions, plus additional transition options for customers with Design & Creation Suites. View all trade-in offers below.
