Switch your multi-user subscriptions to named users

Trade in one seat for two standard subscriptions for one named user each


What is changing and is it relevant for me?

From August 2020 Autodesk will stop the so-called multi-user licenses. The license form makes is possible to share one license with multiple users. To enable this type of license, a specific license server is required, which must be installed on site at your company. Managing these licenses and the license server takes time and effort.

Today we are getting more and more used to having our own license – like you know it from e.g. Office 365. A so-called named license. This subscription form offers both simplicity in management and insight about the users and usage in your organisation.

If you have a multi-user subscription today, you are now offered to switch your multi-user subscription for two named users at a at a cost consistent with what you pay today! In addition to this you can then renew at an ongoing discount to 2028.

What does this mean for me?

Have you ever struggled with getting access to your license because it was in use by someone else? With the transition to a named user – your license will always be ready to be used by you! This means that you log in with your login whenever you need your license.
