VECO Joins Bentley's Enterprise License Subscription Program



    Leading Provider of Project Services to the Energy, Resource, and Process
Industries Gets Unlimited Access to Entire ELS Software Portfolio for a Fixed
Annual Fee

    HOUSTON, January 30 /CNW/ - Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced
that VECO, a leading provider of project services to the energy, resource, and
process industries, has joined Bentley's Enterprise License Subscription (ELS)
program.

    "VECO's broad suite of project services is delivered through a number of
business sectors. Each sector operates globally and uses integrated project
management and communication systems to provide local solutions," said Mark
Christenson, design technologies manager at VECO. "Our new ELS will give these
distributed operations the flexibility to immediately access and deploy the
infrastructure software they need without worrying about cumbersome licensing
restrictions."

    Continued Christenson, "We end up saving time and money, as do our
clients. An example of this is our advanced use of interference management to
identify issues prior to fabrication. Our clients benefit from our ability to
always use the most advanced technology solutions available, enabling us to
provide deliverables of the highest value and quality."

    The Bentley ELS program grants organizations unlimited access to the
entire ELS software portfolio for a fixed annual fee. The portfolio covers all
the architectural, engineering, construction (AEC) and geospatial software
needs of subscribers, providing building, plant, civil, and geospatial
solutions and supporting a managed environment for their AEC and geospatial
IT.

    The total coverage at a fixed, discounted price means that organizations
can increase their software productivity and reduce their total AEC and
geospatial software costs simultaneously. The unlimited access streamlines
software administration while the annual term simplifies budgeting and
accounting.

    As a strategic benefit, Bentley's ELS helps organizations such as VECO
become more agile. Project starts can happen faster and teams can reconfigure
more quickly for new opportunities. No-charge pilots allow new technology to
be infused into projects more readily. ELS agreements can include partners,
extending the agility and multiplying the benefits in global projects.
