Why upgrade to Autodesk Building Design Suite 2012 Premium $$$$$


At this time, I'd like to point out that if you have a current release of a Revit Suite, AutoCAD or AutoCAD Architecture, you can upgrade to Building Design Suite Premium 2012 for only $1495.
Let's do some math as I had this happen this week with a customer.
I have a client who has AutoCAD Architecture 2012 on subscription ($595) and
3ds Max Design subscription ($495)
He pays $1090 a year for subscription for the two products.
He was going to upgrade to Revit Architecture Suite 2012 for $1195.
His subscription next year would be $1220 ($725 for Revit and $495 for Max).
What did he end up doing because he has such a wonderful consultative reseller ~me!
He upgraded to Building Design Suite 2012 Premium for $1495.
That's only $300 more than the Revit Architecture Suite upgrade he was going to do.
Subscription for BDS-P is $975/year.
That means that next year instead of paying $1220 for Revit/Max, he'll pay $975 for Building Design Suite Premium.
That also means that since he's now paying $1090 for ACA and Max, he's saving $115 a year there and he's saving $245/year for the new Building Design Suite.
Here's what he would have paid over 3 years
Renew subscription $1090, upgrade to Revit, $1195 and renew subscription for next 2 years @ $1220 each.  That would cost a total of $4725 over the next 3 years, averaging $1575/year or 75 cents/work hour.  
What he's doing instead.
Renews subscription for $1090, upgrades to Building Design Suite 2012 Premium $1495 and renews subscription for next 2 years @ $975/year.  This will cost him $4535 over the next 3 years, averaging $1511/year or 73 cents/work hour.

In another scenario, if you have Revit Architecture Suite now and wanted to buy 3ds Max Design, here are the numbers
Revit subscription $725
Buy 3ds Max Design $3495
Add 3ds Max Design Subscription $495
Renew subscription year 2 $725 + $495
Renew subscription year 3 $725 + $495
Total cost over 3 years = $7155 - $2385/year - $1.14/hour

Instead, here's a better option
Revit subscription $725
Upgrade to Building Design Suite Premium which includes 3ds Max Design $1495
Migrate your Revit  Subscription for remainder of current subscription $0
Renew subscription year 2 $975
Renew subscription year 3 $975
Total cost over 3 years = $4170 - $1390/year - $.69/hour
That's a 41% savings over 3 years.
