    Understanding the NEW Backdating Subscription Policy

    Bhavarth Sharaf

      Hello there...


      I recently heard about the NEW Subscription Backdating Policy applicable from 1/1/16.

      Personally I did not like this new policy. I feel that Solidworks is charging too much money for their subscriptions

      It takes all juice from the small companies indeed.

      We purchased a standalone Solidworks Professional license a year ago and my current subscription will expire on 30th October, 2015.

      I am still unclear regarding this policy. I couldn't understand it fully. I have a few questions. Any comments on this will be very helpful to make decisions.


      How much will it cost if I -

      1) Buy subscription (Professional) before 30th October,2015(before my current subscription expires)?

      2) Buy subscription in mid of December

      3) Buy subscription after 1st January,2016

      4) Buy subscription in June 2016


      I would request to provide help on these topics with its calculation.

      Thanks in advance for support.
