Vectorworks Subscriptions Now Available!

Vectorworks Subscription Plans

Vectorworks subscription plans are the best way to get Vectorworks at a reduced upfront cost for the length of time you need. They’re flexible, cost effective, and always keep you up to date with the latest features. Choose the plan that’s right for you!

Vectorworks Subscriptions

Use Vectorworks Anywhere
Use the software in the office, at home, or even on the commute.

Stay Up To Date With The Latest Releases
You’ll get instant access to new software releases and improvements as they launch.

Simple Subscription Management
Your Customer Portal lets you manage your software licences directly from your own account.

Direct Technical Support
As a subscriber, you have access to helpful documentation, tutorials, training videos, and community support forums online. You’ll even be able to speak to someone over email or the phone if you prefer.

Take Advantage Of Flexibility
For short-term needs such as temporary staff of one-off projects, monthly subscriptions are ideal. Your subscription will automatically renew each month, but you have the control to cancel up to four days before your renewal date, avoiding charges for the next billing cycle.

Alternatively, annual subscriptions are a cost-effective way to maintain a subscription for 12 months. With a yearly subscription you’ll pay for 10 months and get two months free, versus a monthly subscription, billed annually. As with the monthly subscription, you have the control to cancel up to four days before your renewal date.

Spreading the Cost of A Perpetual Licence

Other Ways to Buy Vectorworks

If you’re looking to buy Vectorworks, but would prefer monthly payments over an up front lump sum – there are now more choices than ever!

Spreading Vectorworks Payments

  • We can offer business leasing so you can spread the cost of a perpetual licence monthly between your choice of 2 to 5 years.
  • PayPal Credit offers 4 months interest free payments, and can be used for longer terms based on their interest charges.
  • We can also split the payment for you into three instalments. One initial payment, followed by two more with 30 days between them.

Spread the cost of Vectorworks

Vectorworks Subscriptions

Did you know all versions of Vectorworks are now available as a Vectorworks Subscription?

Unlike the other options to spread the cost of a perpetual licence, the subscription allows users to choose month to month if they require the software – or an annual option is available. Vectorworks subscriptions are ideal for users when the length of a project that requires Vectorworks is limited, or perhaps when it’s necessary to add more workstations just for a few months. However, if you expect to use Vectorworks indefinitely, it is far more cost effective to purchase a perpetual licence.
