Two separate announcements signal the willingness of software providers to gain market share for their clean tech and carbon tracking software – even if that means offering the software for free.
Autodesk and Tririga are giving away versions of their software to qualified corporations.
Autodesk, which values its software package at $150,000 or more, is granting licenses for its suite of applications to qualifying early-stage clean tech companies.
The software bundle includes up to five full commercial applications of each of the following: Inventor Professional, Showcase Professional, Vault Manufacturing, Navisworks Manage, Revit Architechture and Alias Design.
Tririga, meanwhile, is offering a 100 percent rebate on its carbon-tracking software, according to a press release. Until Sept. 30, companies can get a rebate for the $49,000 purchase price of the TREES Metrics software. TREES stands for Tririga Real Estate Environmental Sustainability.
Designed for medium- and large-sized companies, the software helps identify opportunities for cutting one’s carbon footprint.
Tririga is angling that companies who purchase the TREES Metrics software will also opt to buy other applications in the TREES package, such as applications that analyze comparisons of the various project options, and pre-defined workflow-based solutions that orchestrate and expedite the financial return of the projects selected.
