Updated Autodesk Software Costs Calculator9 Sep, 2015 By: Robert Green
CAD Manager’s Toolbox: With the updated licensing announcement comes a new spreadsheet to help you plan for future expenses.
You can use this sample spreadsheet to calculate three- and five-year scenarios for rent vs. buy software decisions as well as crossgrades (from single products to suite based products). While this spreadsheet is intended to help analyze software strategies for Autodesk products in 2016, based on the new policy announcements from Autodesk, you can use it for other software vendors as well.
You can download the spreadsheet from my website using this link: www.cad-manager.com/tools
To compute more scenarios, just input more values for other software titles as required.
