Flexible product development software licensing for SMBs

By Anthony Johnson

Expand your product development capabilities with flexible licensing

Solid Edge Value-Based Licensing – new in Solid Edge 2023 – helps small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) manage the challenges of a rapidly changing product development environment. This flexible licensing option provides businesses with the ability to manage cost, discover new product development software applications, and more effectively scale your business.

Value-based licensing offers a truly flexible, cost-effective, simple to scale approach for product development that reduces risk and time-to-market, while encouraging users to explore new possibilities for product innovation.

Solid Edge Value-Based Licensing: How does it work?

Value-Based Licensing is a flexible, cost-effective alternative to purchasing Solid Edge add-on products individually. You can choose the Solid Edge add-on products you want, when you need them. No need for multiple purchases – this licensing option allows you to choose which capabilities you want and when, while offering the freedom to mix and match. In many cases, the total investment is less than purchasing individual licenses, while flexibility is drastically increased regardless of whether Solid Edge add-on products are used daily or occasionally.

This new flexible licensing option, available through a monthly or annual Solid Edge subscription, provides instant access to a set of powerful integrated products:

With a flexible token system, you can easily mix and match add-on products to take advantage of extended functionalities, as needed. Companies purchase a set of tokens which allow users to run a wide array of applications. Tokens are available to purchase in annual subscription packs which make add-on products available as a single, sharable bundle. Tokens can be checked in and checked out to allow for maximum flexibility. Each add-on product consumes a defined number of tokens when in use. The total number of applications and which specific applications that can be checked out is limited by the number tokens users have available.

Value-based licensing is even more flexible when combining multiple users, each with their own desktop instead of tokens, allowing users to claim unused tokens from other users and to use the same applications simultaneously.
