Autodesk has plans on raising the prices of its maintenance plans for those users who want to stay on those plans and kept their perpetual licenses instead of adopting the rental-only licensing system the company is moving towards.
Beginning May 7, 2017, renewal prices will increase by 5% in 2017, 10% in 2018, and 20% in 2019. These numbers are cumulative. It is worth noting that you will be able to renew maintenance plans for one year at a time. The company is also offering discounted prices to users who gave up their perpetual licenses and joined the rental-only plans.
The news probably means more upgrades and more possibilities to be included in the future versions of their solutions. We’ll keep an eye on Autodesk’s plans.
