Autodesk is retiring plans based on serial numbers and launching named user plans based on people. For those customers on multi-user subscriptions, Autodesk will extend the availability of these plans to August 7, 2020 and delay their retirement to August 7, 2021.
The new plans will deliver you and your business many benefits now, and in the future, at a cost consistent with what you pay today.
- 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 your 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.
Autodesk offers different Trade-in offers for multi-user subscribers and standalone or network maintenance plan customers. Contact us for details.

On May 7, 2020, Autodesk will increase the price for renewals of maintenance plans by 20%. One year later, on May 7, 2021, the maintenance plans will be concluded. Customers will then no longer be able to renew their maintenance plans.
Customers with a single user maintenance plan that can be extended prior to May 7, 2020 may take the last chance to switch from their maintenance plan to a subscription using the maintenance to subscription program.
Autodesk suggests that customers with a maintenance plan that can only be renewed after May 7, 2020 use the new Trade-in program to prevent their contract from being renewed at the next expiration date. Otherwise, the customer is obliged to take out a new subscription at the standard price if he wants to continue working with the most recent version of the software.

On March 25th, 2020, Autodesk increased the price of new subscriptions by 5%. However, the price of renewals remains unchanged. In this way, Autodesk wants to reward loyal customers who renew their subscriptions on-time.
