Switch your Maintenance Plan to Subscription

Save Now & Switch

Beginning in June of 2017, at renewal time, you will be able to move your Autodesk products, currently on a maintenance plan, to a subscription license. The cost to switch will be the cost of 2016 maintenance plan renewal pricing, plus 5%. Due to the notable increases expected in the maintenance price renewals over the next three years, this represents a significant cost savings. This offer is available exclusively to our current maintenance plan customers.


Changes to maintenance plans:

End of multi-year maintenance (Effective February 20, 2017)

Customers who choose to remain on maintenance are able to renew for one year at a time. While quotes made before February 20 were honored until March 31, customers who chose to renew a multi-year maintenance contract before March 31 will not be eligible to switch to a subscription until their contract is up for renewal.

Maintenance plan prices increase (Effective May 7, 2017)

Beginning May 7, 2017, maintenance renewal prices will increase by 5% in 2017, 10% in 2018, and 20% in 2019. To mitigate these increases and enjoy the benefits of subscribing sooner, customers should consider moving to a subscription at the time of renewal.

Maintenance to subscription offer (Effective June 2017)

Beginning in June 2017, customers with eligible products on maintenance will have the ability to easily switch to a subscription at of renewal for a discounted price. Customers can take advantage of this offer once per seat of a product on maintenance. The price to switch will increase 5% in 2018 and another 5% in 2019, so the sooner customers switch to subscription, the less it will cost—giving them greater savings compared to those who wait to move, or choose to stay on maintenance. As long as they continue to renew, they’ll also be able to secure discounted pricing for up to 3 years.
