What is Rental Licencing?
Rental licencing is a fantastic opportunity for individuals or companies to gain access to the latest products in the SOLIDWORKS suite with lower upfront costs, when compared to the standard perpetual licence.

As rental licencing is based on a subscription service, you can benefit from greater flexibility, as well as the ability to mix and match products as and when you need them, to cope with demand and changing workloads, meaning that you only have to pay for what you need. You can choose between 3 or 12 month rental agreements and gain full access to same superb technical assistance we offer.

This method is ideal for companies that need to maximise their cash flow, with a flexible and affordable solution that is easy to manage.
