My government organization is interested in purchasing a Sketchup Pro Classic license (non-subscription). In the past, I could simply have my accounts administrator purchase a license, give me the licensing key, and away I go. Is it still possible to download and use Sketchup in this simple fashion?
I understand that Sketchup now requires a Trimble account, which requires an e-mail. This creates additional headaches as organizational e-mails are managed by IT Security, require extensive paperwork to approve access permissions, software purchases, software approvals specific to individual computers, etc.
I am an experienced Sketchup User for personal projects. However for the current project I will need to use a commercial license paid for and managed by my employer. I need assistance deciding which route to go:
Create a Trimble through my personal organizational e-mail and do all of the purchasing/installations/licensing through that PLUS:
*Transfer the license ownership to another organizational e-mail at a future date (in the event that the current e-mail is deactivated) Is this part possible to do?
Have IT create a Trimbe account using a department-wide shared e-mail and do all of the purchasing/installations/licensing through that account. (This will take weeks for them to do)
