solidThinking Units

Altair, developer of the solidThinking products, has launched a new, revolutionary license model: solidThinking Units. Normally you’d choose a software title for which you’d purchase a license. With solidThinking Units, you choose a number Units to start any product you want for which you have enough Units.

You lease solidThinking Units per year or per month. solidThinking Units can be freely distributed within your organization. This way, you can grant access to the software to anyone in your organization. In case you have unused Units left, you can use these to perform calculations in the Cloud! This makes solidThinking Units the most flexible software licensing model that exists today.

Advantages solidThinking Units

  • You have access to all Altair solidThinking products
  • You no longer have to choose a specific software title
  • Anyone in your organization can be given access to the software
  • Units stapelen niet: heeft u bijvoorbeeld 30 Units, dan kunt u alle softwaretitels waarvoor max. 30 Units benodigd zijn opstarten;
  • Cheaper than purchasing separate licenses
  • You can lease extra Units per month to cover peaks in your workload
  • You can use unused Units to perform calculations in the Cloud
