Datech launches Autodesk Subscription Auto Renew

By Simon Meredith | 12th May 2016

Barcelona, 12 May 2016 – Datech, Tech Data’s specialist brand for professional design software, has become the first distributor to offer monthly and annual Autodesk Subscription Auto-Renew to its reseller partners, providing easy and affordable access to the full range of Autodesk subscriptions.

“This breakthrough is the result of the very close co-operation between Datech and Autodesk and is a further milestone in Datech’s journey to delivering true value added digital distribution to our reseller partners,” said Mike Appel, vice president, Datech and Enterprise Software at Tech Data.  “With Autodesk Subscription Auto-Renew, we are providing tools and processes to further automate order processing with our resellers, while also enabling our resellers to similarly automate their own customer transactions. This means our resellers have more time to sell and engage with their existing customers, helping them with the solutions they need to drive their businesses.”

Autodesk Subscription Auto-Renew is a new way of consuming and paying for access to Autodesk software. Specifically, the monthly subscription offering gives resellers new business opportunities with new end-users due to the affordable price point and the ability to turn access on and off easily. These end-users can now utilise Autodesk software to compete for new work, complete existing projects more effectively and collaborate with the wider Autodesk community. Existing Autodesk end-users can benefit from Autodesk Subscription Auto-Renew as it is the easiest and most flexible way to manage Autodesk subscriptions in line with their changing staff and project needs.

Auto Renew is fully integrated into Tech Data’s e-commerce platforms, providing a seamless process for resellers who wish to adopt and sell Autodesk licenses. Resellers have full access to contract details through the Datech Subscription Dashboard and will receive reminders of contracts 5 days prior to expiry.

Autodesk Subscription Auto-Renew delivers increased flexibility and reduced administration for resellers and their customers, streamlining access to the world’s leading design solutions from Autodesk.
