Autodesk programmes available on pay-as-you-go basis from mid-September 2013

Software solutions company Autodesk has announced that from 16 September its customers will be able to use a selection of its products on a pay-as-you-go basis. Software including Design and Creation Suites, Autodesk 3sd Max and Autodesk Maya will all be available on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, meaning that practices can adapt their subscriptions to their current workload.

The new framework enables design studios to view an investment in software as an operating expense as opposed to a capital expense, in some cases meaning the client would fund the use of the software rather than the design firm. Users can also quickly ramp projects up or down depending on workload or staffing requirements.

Andrew Anagnost, Senior Vice President of Industry Strategy and Marketing at Autodesk said: “Our customers wanted more choices and flexibility in how they access our portfolio of design, engineering and entertainment creation tools. We expect rental plans to be attractive across all the industries we serve, especially for freelancers, start-ups or businesses that are project-based in nature.”
