The key question you have to ask yourself is if you do not upgrade along with your customers will they quit using you, or if your suppliers have issues. Remember the key thing is that you cannot bring in newer SW files if you are on a older version.

You could thank yourself for not getting Pro/E which has a small maintenance fee of nearly 1.5 times the SolidWorks amount....Of course you could have gotten AutoDesks Inventor and save about $100us, but you probably would have gotten a lot less features and had more reason to use tech support.
And you don't have to pay it if you know the product and have no questions. Folks like that pay because they want to get the latest service packs and major releases without having to buy the software over and over.
