5 Things You Need to Know About the New Autodesk Industry Collections

This post was updated in May 2017. For more information about the Industry Collections, visit our solutions page!

Since July 31, 2016, Autodesk is no longer selling new subscriptions or perpetual licenses for Design & Creation Suites. In their place, three new industry collections were introduced to provide you value that well exceeds the premium suites.

Here are 5 things you need to know about the switch.

1. What is an industry collection and what are the key benefits to subscribing?

An Autodesk industry collection is the most convenient and flexible way to access a wide selection of the most essential Autodesk software used in your industry. Subscriptions to these collections will be available for Architecture, Engineering & Construction, Product Design, and Media & Entertainment.

With industry collections, you will have access to a wide selection of the most essential Autodesk software for your industry in a single collection that will evolve and get better over time. You’ll also have continuous access to the latest software releases and enhancements. Subscriptions will be available with flexible term lengths (monthly, quarterly, annual, multi-year) with both single-user (individual) and multi-user (shared) options. You will also have previous version rights, global travel rights, and access to more cloud services, technical support, and administrative tools.

2. What if I want to switch my subscription to an industry collection?

By switching your subscription you are choosing to end your current subscription in order to change to a new subscription giving you access to new software and services. Most annual and multi-year subscriptions can be switched. You will have the option to switch all or a subset of the seats on your current subscription. You can switch from a premium or ultimate Design & Creation Suite to an industry collection for free (excluding AutoCAD Design Suite) for the remainder of your current subscription term. Otherwise, you will only pay the approximate price difference between the two subscriptions, prorated for the time remaining in the subscription term.

4. What if a product I need is not in my industry collection?

You can always subscribe to additional other products on an individual basis in order to address your more specialized needs (i.e., Simulation, Data Management, etc.).

5. Do I need to download the entire industry collection?

No, you do not need to download the entire industry collection. You can pick and choose the individual products that you want to use from within the collection, then download and install what you want, whenever you like.

The motivation for the move to industry collections is to provide all users with greater value, greater flexibility and choice, and continuous improvement.
