SketchUp Pro subscription additional products

With a subscription, you have access to a larger suite of tools to enhance design workflows and additional capabilities delivered through Trimble’s cloud services.

You get the latest version of SketchUp Pro for desktop, plus full use of:

● Trimble Connect for business with unlimited cloud storage

● SketchUp for Web premium

● Viewer apps for HoloLens, VR and Mobile

With a SketchUp Pro Subscription adopt ease of management – You are in control

When you subscribe, you will have a much simpler way of administering SketchUp access for employees. Keeping track of multiple Classic licenses and not knowing who was using which license has always been a pain. With subscriptions, there is an Admin dashboard (which does not exist for Classic licenses). This allows you to add or remove employee access and add or reduce seats. You will always know who has access. If an employee leaves you, simply revoke access and re-assign the entitlement to someone else!

Budget better with your Sketchup Pro Subscription

Subscribing is a more flexible way to access SketchUp software, allowing for effective budgeting. Any new subscription you purchased during your one-year term, will get co-termed to the exact same expiration day as the initial subscription(s) you purchase.

You will no longer have licenses with renewal dates throughout the year!

Predictable expenditure – One payment, on the same day each year, makes your SketchUp subscription really-simple to budget for.
