On December 7th 2016, Autodesk has ended the sale of Inventor ETO to new customers. Autodesk will continue maintaining the technology and supporting existing customers at the current level of capabilities.
Customers with perpetual licenses of Inventor Engineer-to-Order Series may use the product indefinitely. You will continue getting support and other benefits as long as you have an active maintenance contract and renew annual subscription. Inventor ETO subscribers can purchase subscription renewals on an annual term to continue accessing the software.
Inventor® Engineer-to-Order software helps automate point-of-sale order and bid processes by providing easy-to-use tools for capturing business and engineering rules. Part of the Digital Prototyping solution, ETO offers a flexible development platform for creating custom branded applications, enabling teams to provide faster, more cost-effective product delivery.
Help sales teams set customer expectations, capture crucial requirements, and accurately predict margins—all before a proposal is submitted.
When it’s time to submit a proposal, Inventor ETO helps you to generate it automatically, complete with customer requirements, price quotations, and drawings.
A programming language specific to Engineer-To-Order improves productivity inside a familiar, easy-to-use Visual Studio-based environment.
ETO software rules can capture geometric, configuration, manufacturing, pricing, or even business knowledge into the application.
A robust, signature-based method automatically manages and reuses configurations, saving time and eliminating redundant files.
Provide your sales team, distributors, and customers with online access to your product configurations. You have the option of Autodesk-hosted data (with Configurator 360 cloud-based product configurator software) or hosting the application locally.
Inventor ETO connects directly to Vault data management software to manage product data functions, including file check-in, check-out, naming, and reuse.
