SOLIDWORKS Term Licensing is a new licensing option that lowers the upfront cost of SOLIDWORKS software and allows for more flexible deployment options for start-ups, makers, consultants, contractors and businesses of any size.
Term Licensing is essentially renting a SOLIDWORKS License for a three month or 1 year term rather than purchasing a perpetual license which you own.
What is SOLIDWORKS Term Licensing?
Term Licensing is for individuals and companies that want access to SOLIDWORKS best-in-class design solutions with lower upfront costs compared to traditional perpetual licensing.
With a term license you can use SOLIDWORKS products with a quarterly subscription. A term license gives SOLIDWORKS users access to a variety of SOLIDWORKS applications with the same full version as a perpetual license — but with a flexible and affordable approach that’s easy on a software budget and easy to manage.
Why Rent SOLIDWORKS?
SOLIDWORKS Term Licenses are ideal for companies that need to maximize their cash flow, this could include the following:
- Licenses are required for short term projects or for the specific phase of a project where specific software such as simulation is needed to validate a design.
- Licenses are to meet staffing requirements such as contract staff or intern that require SOLIDWORKS for a short time period.
- A new division or project has been initiated and cash-flow is a concern.
- A start-up/new business requires SOLIDWORKS software at the minimum cost to get started.
