If you haven't heard yet Autodesk are stopping upgrades off Subscription as of 1st February 2015! This means that if you want to upgrade your software after this date then the only way you would be able to do so is to buy a new seat which can be costly.
However Autodesk and Adris (as we always have been) are giving you the opportunity to join Subscription when you upgrade your Autodesk software or purchase a new seat. This means that you will be able to benefit from immediate access the latest software when it is released each year.
Therefore you have no reason to worry about not being up-to-date when changes occur in your Autodesk software solution.
Another benefit is that you can work in three preceding versions – for example if you had Autodesk Inventor and wanted to continue working in the 2014 version then you would have the right to when 2015 is released. In addition you would be able to work in 2013 and 2012 which allows you to be flexible when working with a cross functional project team who may not have the latest version therefore allowing flexible licensing.
On the other hand if you didn't join Subscription with your Autodesk software then you would only have the right to work in the latest version therefore limiting your access to projects that aren't designed in your version of software.
Operationally it can be a challenge if you received a file and it couldn't be opened because you and your client aren't using the same version as you, but Autodesk Subscription eliminates this frustrating occurrence and opens up your ability to work with a number of versions.
Remember to join Subscription before 1st February 2015 when you buy a new or upgrade your Autodesk software to experience all the benefits that it has to offer.
