Maintenance to Subscription

When it’s time to renew your Maintenance Plan, you have options!

Renewal Special Time Offer!

At time of renewal, you can choose to move to subscription for the same cost as your maintenance plan renewal – or switch to an industry collection at a special price. As long as you continue to renew, you will enjoy special pricing, which will be lower than maintenance plan renewal pricing and far below the cost of purchasing a new subscription.

If the timing does not work for you now, you can switch to subscription next year or the year after.

Autodesk Maintenance Changes Explained

By Teresa Anania, Sr. Director, Subscriber Success, Autodesk

We recently began communicating with our maintenance customers about pricing changes and an offer available over the next three years that makes switching to subscription a far more attractive option for many.

But, as with any change, we get that it doesn’t always feel welcome, and there are plenty of you on maintenance that have questions. So I’d like to address a few common concerns we’ve heard:


What are the benefits of switching to subscription?

  • The convenience of charging subscription costs annually to projects.

  • Frequent product updates that you can decide when to consume.

  • More convenient support including “schedule a call” for faster engagement times.

  • Simpler administration of software when standardizing products on subscription.
