IronCAD does so many things better than traditional software, that using IronCAD compared to something else will often save you far more than the cost! We'd love for you to do the calculations for your business.
IronCAD works much faster than traditional CAD software, from the start it should take you less time to make almost anything. This time-saving increases even more when you want to make design changes later, which is where IronCAD shows more of its speed and flexibility. Overall, the time you save using IronCAD compared to something else can often pay for the software many times over. Think of how much time you’ll be using CAD software, then multiply that by your or your employees’ rates. It doesn’t take long for the savings to be far more important than any start-up cost.
IronCAD is one of the easiest MCAD systems to learn in the world. As you may have already seen from our customers, training new employees to work in IronCAD can be extremely fast. The same goes for training yourself. Every day in training is a day not working, IronCAD lets you and your team get confident and productive faster. Saving you time and money.
We like to offer multiple licensing options so you have flexibility, and this includes permanent licenses. This means if your business changes focus for a while, you’ll still have easy access to open and customise any of your CAD models. It’s your valuable intellectual property, and we think you should have proper access to it. If you decide some of our new features look good, you still have the option to upgrade your license or skip an upgrade.
No, there are no forced ongoing costs. When buying a full license you receive a permanent license for that version of the software, plus a year of upgrades included. After that year of upgrades, you can choose to upgrade again if you think the new features will be profitable for you, or you can skip and not upgrade, keeping your current version. You can even upgrade later too. It's a much more friendly upgrade policy than you may be used to. We try to make all the new features that come with our upgrades pay for themselves based on their productivity increases. Whilst you continue to subscribe to upgrades you also receive a free 'Home Use' license to use on a secondary machine at home.
Yes, we have a full online training course which is completely free and self-paced. It's used around the world in big and small companies alike. We also have a comprehensive training center called the IronCAD Academy, filled with tutorials for many different industries. You can also purchase one-on-one training from actual users of the software in industry. These are people who are passionate about design and can help you get the most from your investment, just as they have done.
Yes, you can pay on a payment plan, this makes it easier to start your company profiting from your use of IronCAD before you've even paid the full amount. Great if you're looking to manage cash-flow that way.
