What is Subscription

Subscription is a way to access PTC software licenses in a pay-as-you-go model rather than access by one large upfront cost. When you subscribe to PTC software, you’ll also get:

  • New releases, ongoing maintenance and security updates to keep you up and running
  • Ability to change capabilities so that you can access only the software you need, when you need it
  • eLearning content to access training on demand and improve your skills at your own pace
  • Assisted support with remote desktop diagnostics from certified and multi-language support engineers, and eSupport
  • Smart connected and proactive support to pinpoint problems sooner, see trends, and operate more efficiently

Why Customers Prefer to Subscribe

Customers purchasing subscriptions benefit from:

  • Faster Innovation Cycles: New products and enhancements released in shorter cycles
  • Shared Commitment to Success: Proactive support, eLearning, and services ensure success
  • Flexibility and Lower Upfront Costs: Scale up or change capabilities to meet your business needs
  • Cloud Deployment Options: Optional cloud deployment to lower IT-related costs
