Autodesk Software Calculator

25 Aug, 2015 By: Robert Green

CAD Manager’s Toolbox: Use this sample worksheet to analyze software purchase decisions.

Editor's Note: This spreadsheet is a companion to the CAD Manager column, "Autodesk Software Goes Subscription-Only in 2016."

When you’re ready to start planning your company’s licensing future, you can use this sample spreadsheet to calculate 3- and 5-year scenarios for rent vs. buy software decisions. While this spreadsheet is intended to help analyze software strategies for Autodesk products in 2016, you can use for other software vendors as well.

You can download the spreadsheet from my web site at:

Perpetual vs. Rental Software Calculator

To compute more scenarios, just input more values for other software titles as required.
