It's a new year - time for those resolutions.

Jan 16, 2015

KETIV’s goal for 2015 is to provide our customers with an effortless experience. Your challenges are growing in number and complexity. There appear to be more possible solutions than ever before. We will deliver the right mix of technology and human expertise as you navigate through this change.

We are investing in our exceptional team. We’ve added talented engineers to further enhance your experience with KETIV. We are your extended team for projects for data creation, FEA/CFD validation, and engineering automation. Our Lifeline offering will evolve over the next few months to bring even more consistency and reliability, while maintaining its high quality.

As announced last year, Autodesk is implementing a new policy on February 1, 2015. They will not offer software upgrades after this date. Be sure to trade in any older software for the latest release before then. Trade-in value for Design Suites can be as high as $4095. So act before this change takes effect in a couple of weeks.

The majority of you will not be impacted  by this change because you own current licenses with Maintenance Subscription. Moving forward, this will be the only way to protect the value of your software. I encourage you to keep your licenses covered under Maintenance Subscription and consider three year coverage for better planning and additional savings.

In addition to traditional perpetual licensing, Autodesk is introducing a flexible pay-as-you-go approach for shorter projects with limited budgets. This new form of licensing is called Desktop Subscription. Call our Customer Care team and they can help you design the right blend of licensing for your needs.

The KETIV team wishes you all the best in 2015.
