On August 1, Autodesk announced the availability of the industry collections, offering customers the ability to get access to the most essential Autodesk software and services in a single package.
About this announcement, “Autodesk has transitioned fully to a subscription business, and our subscribers expect value, flexibility and easy access to our software,” said Andrew Anagnost, senior vice president, Autodesk. “Industry collections offer the freedom to access the products you want, when you want them.”
Media coverage of the introduction was highly positive. Here are a couple of quotes from key industry publications…
The move is more than a pricing restructure. The plan gives subscribers more options to access its tools, according to the firm. Software is available not only as single offerings, such as Revit, or in bundles called “suites,” as Autodesk offered in previous years, but also now in a new form the company calls “collections.” – ENR
“Whereas Suite customers had to download all products in the suite, even those they did not want to use, the Collections allow users to download just the individual products they need. A delivery and deployment desktop application is available to ease the process, and purchase dates and expiration dates can be aligned across products.“ – Cadalyst
