We are an authorised reseller for GeoTools and CADPower in the United Kingdom. The software company DesignSense are making a significant change to their GeoTools-CADPower software licensing policy. We wanted to bring this to your attention and make you aware of some upcoming promotions.
What is Changing?
We can do no better that quote DesignSense themselves:
In line with the prevailing industry standard and an overwhelming request from users to be able to use the software at a lower initial cost, we are moving away from perpetual licenses to subscription (rental) licenses.
The move to subscription licensing will enable companies to ramp up and ramp down CAD users with a great deal of flexibility.DesignSense
DesignSense are aware that rental licenses are loved by some and hated by others. They understand the sensitivities of both camps. Therefore, please feel free to discuss with us your concerns and we will be happy to find a way forward that will work for you.
Rental licenses will now be the headline offering for GeoTools and CADPower. However, perpetual licenses may also will be available on a case-by-case basis. DesignSense is open to flexibility. Talk to us about your requirements.
