Flex – a new pay-as-you-go system by Autodesk – aims to provide clients with more flexible payment options.
Autodesk has unveiled their new pay-as-you-go pricing system called Flex. The main goal of this new system is to enable users to pay for Autodesk's software on a day-by-day basis by pre-purchasing online tokens to match the artist's or the studio's needs. The price of one token ranges from 2.63 to 3$, depending on the quantity. The number of tokens consumed varies from application to application, roughly in proportion to its subscription price. The payment model will be introduced for a limited range of Autodesk applications, including 3ds Max, Maya, Mudbox, MotionBuilder, and Flame, on 24 September 2021.
"We are one of the first in our industry to offer a consumption model. This model complements our core subscriptions and benefits companies of all sizes. For our existing customers, Flex helps ensure they are maximizing the value of Autodesk products. It also allows existing customers to easily try products in our portfolio they haven’t used before," comments Autodesk. "Similarly, with Flex, new customers can try our products at a lower price point – no subscription needed."
