Siemens is providing a new option to license Solid Edge, allowing customers in select countries to purchase a monthly subscription to the application.
"Solid Edge is widely recognized in the industry as a cost effective and easy-to-use CAD solution," said Ken Versprille, executive consultant at CIMdata, a PLM consulting firm. "The additional flexibility to access the software via a subscription model will provide added benefit to customers focused on maintaining low operating costs."
The Solid Edge monthly subscription license is available from the Solid Edge online store where customers can select from four different versions of the software based on the features that best fit their needs. Subscriptions can be purchased on a month-to-month basis.
"Unlike other subscription models, subscribers to Solid Edge will not be locked in to an extended usage period," said Karsten Newbury, senior vice president and general manager, Mainstream Engineering Software, Siemens PLM Software. "Siemens PLM Software now offers its B2B-customers the most flexible way to access the professional CAD software they need to solve their engineering problems."
The new monthly subscription option will initially be available in the United States, United Kingdom and Japan.
