  • A Business Case for Autodesk from Softchoice

    1. 1. Making the Case:<br />Getting Current on AutoCAD 2012<br />
    2. 2. Introduction<br />For those of you working on an older version of AutoCAD, this presentation may help you communicate your need for updated software to your boss.<br />With features that speak to customer benefits, this might be what you need to get current. Even better, we’ll show you how to leverage a subscription so that you can always have the most current version of AutoCAD.<br />
    3. 3. Opportunities for the organization<br />Leverage updated AutoCAD software for better productivity with the organization<br />On average projects can be completed faster with AutoCAD 2012 over AutoCAD 2008- a project that took 13.5 hours now takes 9.25<br />Lower the total investment in AutoCAD by leveraging a subscription <br />The cost of a new license would be allocated as a capital expense and the subscription could potentially be allocated under operating expenses.<br />
    4. 4. Demonstrate the ROI for AutoCAD 2012<br /><ul><li>Calculate the expected productivity increase per user </li></ul>How many more projects you could complete?<br />How much more revenue would these additional projects bring in for your organization?<br /><ul><li>Consider the projects you can’t do because you don’t have the capabilities </li></ul>What does this translate into for lost revenue?<br />
    5. 5. Reasons to upgrade to AutoCAD 2012<br /><ul><li>Meet customer expectations</li></ul>Meet current demands with up to date software<br /><ul><li>Produce a better product than the competition</li></ul>Win more customers with better elevated designs<br />Don’t be left behind when competitors are using AutoCAD 2012<br /><ul><li>Increase productivity to increase revenue</li></ul>Average of 31% time savings per project (means MORE projects which means MORE revenue)<br />
    6. 6. Benefit #1: Meet customer expectations<br /><ul><li>Leverage the most complete documentation tools available today</li></ul>Instant updates to drawing views, edge display and location <br />Import models from applications like Pro/ENGINEER, CATIA, Solidworks, NX and Rhinoceros to streamline document workflow<br /><ul><li>Develop conceptual designs more easily in 3D (2008 can’t do this)</li></ul>Any form imaginable can be created<br />The most flexibility with tools for surface, solid and mesh modeling <br />
    7. 7. Benefit #2: Produce a better product than competition<br />The new modeling standard used today is 3D<br />Autodesk Inventor Fusion software adds to the 3D conceptual design capabilities of AutoCAD and sets a new standard for professional 3D<br />Make drawing revisions in less time <br />Dramatically slash time with parametric drawing. <br />Infer constraints in real time, virtually eliminating the need to manually define object relationships<br />
    8. 8. Benefit #3: Increase productivity to increase revenue<br /><ul><li>Save time by bringing as-built conditions into the AutoCAD workspace</li></ul>More quickly import scanned objects, snot to points and develop designs using 3D scans with support for up to two billion points, and an enhanced point cloud engine <br /><ul><li>Improve collaboration and save time by reusing existing PDF-based design data</li></ul>Import and underlay PDF files <br />
    9. 9. Cost Savings: Based on 3 years <br />With a subscription of 3 years an organization would save $645 per license<br />
    10. 10. Additional Benefits of Subscription<br /><ul><li>Increased productivity, predictable budgeting, and simplified license management
    11. 11. New upgrades and any incremental product enhancements
