ProDesign PremierCareXtra 2022

A letter for ProDesign PCX customers

ProDesign products* Premier CareXtra support and maintenance quotations will increase by 30% upon your next renewal.

*All Premier CareXtra support and maintenance services and non-subscription products that include ProDesign.



The ProDesign products play a central role within the Trimble portfolio. At the beginning of 2021, Trimble MEP started our transformation and introduced the Trimble Electrical Designer and Stabicad subscriptions: a selection of all-in-one packages that include the key 2D and 3D design and engineer features, calculations and content our electrical building services professional customers need.



Because the majority of ProDesign customers have already switched to a subscription licence, the existing PCX billing model is no longer cost-effective. Therefore the software maintenance fee is increasing. A 30% increase will be applied to PCX support, maintenance and upgrade quotations, in relation to perpetual ProDesign products*, due for renewal in 2022. Please note, this only applies to renewal quotes and does not impact your current contract.



Lock-in the price you pay now



New ProDesign packages are coming soon! Trimble Electrical Designer 2D and Stabicad will be available to purchase via named user subscription. And as an existing customer, if you commit to switch to these brand new ProDesign named user subscription packages, prior to your PCX renewal, you will continue to pay the price you currently pay until launch day.



Our commit to switch promise, to you:

If you take advantage of this limited-time offer, you will receive continuous support, maintenance and updates in line with your current PCX contract until launch day. At which point you will be switched to a ProDesign named user subscription package of your choice**, at an exclusive offer price. This offer is not available to new customers. Contact us to find out more.



If you don’t want to opt for a subscription licence just now, you can still switch at any time, but this deal will only be available until your upcoming PCX renewal date. Please contact your account manager to find out when your renewal date is.



**If you choose to take advantage of the commit to switch offer, Trimble MEP will inform you of the launch date prior to your licencing switch.



2022 - a year full of new added value benefits

There are some major developments planned for Trimble Electrical Designer subscription solutions (ProDesign products on subscription) in 2022. Please note, these new features are only accessible to users with a subscription licence and NOT those with a perpetual licence.



We'll be releasing a number of our highest requested features such as arc-flash calculations and user customisable reports. This is in addition to the aforementioned future-proof named user licensing system which comes equipped with a customer licence management portal.



When introduced, some of the many benefits our named user subscription customers will receive over our current system are:

  • Simplified licencing built around individual profiles will make licence management much easier
  • You won't have to call Support to assign ProDesign product access to team members
  • ProDesign product access will always be available to assigned users, no matter where they are providing they have an internet connection
  • There will no longer be the extra costs associated with maintaining a Flex Server for access to ProDesign products

Legacy purchase model software



Although we have no plans in 2022 to retire the ProDesign product PremierCareXtra support and maintenance service, we have shifted our focus to developing premium features, like those mentioned above, for the new subscription system that will better serve our customers and help them to adapt to the future of our industry. We will continue to serve our PCX customers if they choose to renew support contracts with:

  • Expert support
  • Regulation updates including IET Wiring Regulation and NEN 1010 updates
  • Plus some feature and usability enhancements.
