CoCreate says it is the only CAD/PLM vendor to offer customers the choice of:
- perpetual licensing.
- hosted licensing.
- subscription licensing.
What they call "subscription licensing" is a truer version than most other CAD vendors. CoCreate lets customers to rent the software on an annual basis; other vendors expect you to pay the full amount of the software, and then tack on the annual subscription fee.
(Hosted licensing is where the software runs on CoCreate's computer, and you access it remotely; the advantage is that there is little or no softare to install and upgrade on your own computers.)
