I would like to open a dialogue about Sketchup’s current licensing policy. We are a small office using Sketchup Pro as a conceptual and schematic design tool, shifting to BIM in later design stages.
We do not need the ten license minimum for Network Licensing, but the individual licenses are locked down to limited installs. We have four (4) Sketchup Pro Licenses for 6 potential users, with 2-3 concurrent users, typically. In our office, only our designers are using sketchup. Production staff only needs to use it to reference the design work. Even our designers are only using it 20% of the the project design schedule. With your current licensing scheme, we would need to purchase additional licenses to get everyone working, but each license would be in use less than 20% of the time.
We would appreciate the opportunity to explore network licensing for less than 5 or 10 licenses.
