    Thank you for your reply, much appreciated.  I had my hopes they would be something exciting as listed as an additional feature for the Professional compared to the Standard subscription.  

    Would it be a fair summary to say the significant differences are - Release Management, Render Studio, Simulation, and PCB Studio?

    Items are things which typically don’t have geometric representations in CAD (grease, adhesives, etc ).

    Instant provisioning just means you can add users in seconds by uploading CSV files if you need to manage large numbers of users.

    It depends on your company's needs. For some, Item management could be pretty important. Instant provisioning could be helpful if you have a lot of seats getting turned on and off, but I can't see spending the extra money just for that. From my company's perspective, Enterprise is essential.

    If the decision is between Standard and Pro, then Release Management, Render Studio, Simulation, and PCB Studio are the big features, but some of the smaller ones like Search and Where Used, or Automatic Part Numbering could be pretty important too.
