Autodesk Final Days to Upgrade 2015

Update – 4 February, 2015: The final date to upgrade perpetual licences has been extended from the date below (31 January, 2015) to 6 March, 2015.

If you use Autodesk software, the most cost-effective way to always stay up-to-date is to upgrade to the latest edition with Autodesk Subscription.

But don’t be caught off-guard, because significant changes in 2015 will affect all Autodesk customers.

What’s changing?

As of 1 February, 2015, Autodesk will no longer offer the option to purchase an upgrade version of the latest software release if you own a perpetual license. This could mean costly Mobdro repurchasing in the future.

Note: A perpetual license grants the license holder the right to use the version of Autodesk software that is purchased for as long as desired.

New versions will be available through purchase of a new perpetual license for the current version or as a Maintenance Subscription or Desktop Subscription benefit.

And if you are already subscribed, the retirement of the Subscription Centre on 31 March, 2015 means you will need to set up a new Autodesk Account.

What action do I need to take?

A2K Technologies, the largest Autodesk channel partner in Australasia, has a number of ways to help you navigate the changes – even if you are not already an A2K customer.

Upgrade on Subscription now and save up to 30% on SRP

If you have Autodesk licences from 2014 or earlier, now is the best time to move to Subscription and upgrade.

Upgrade SRP is up to 30% cheaper than new seat SRP. Take advantage of this savings opportunity with A2K while upgrades from previous releases Mobdro APK are still available. But don’t delay – time runs out January 31, 2015.

Need training for your Autodesk software? Save 20%

If you move to Subscription and upgrade your 2014 or earlier licences by 31 January, 2015, you’ll also save 20% off the usual price of training bookings with A2K Technologies.
