Transition to named user plans begins on 7th August 2020

Autodesk is retiring plans based on serial numbers and launching new plans based on people. The new plans will deliver you and your business many benefits now, and in the future, at a cost consistent with what you pay today.

This is just the start of a more relevant user experience including collaboration, tailored learning content and insights.

What is a named user plan, and how will it benefit me?

Benefits Include:

Dedicated Access for all employees whenever they need it. No more downtime because all of your licences are in use. No more managing network servers or tracking anonymous serial numbers.

Optimise Licencing Costs New named plans will allow you to have visibility into your data usage allowing you to make smarter investments for your company.

Plans for Individuals, Teams and Enterprises with dedicated or flexible software access, depending on how your company works.
