PR — Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that Aibel, a Norway-based leading provider of services, products, and technologies to the global upstream oil and gas industry with 16 offices around the world, has joined Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription (ELS) program. Bentley’s 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 AEC and geospatial software administration while the annual term simplifies budgeting and accounting.
Lars Line Vaaland, IS and IT vice president of Aibel, said, “Aibel continues to grow its global engineering business, and in doing this we have a strong focus on using common processes and tools on a global basis.
“Our ELS gives us global access to a broad set of common tools for the design and management of our projects. All of this helps us build upon our reputation for innovative, flexible engineering practices and increases our ability to develop sustainable designs that meet our clients’ needs.”
Immediately, Bentley’s ELS gives Aibel a quick, cost-effective way to offer its clients technically creative alternatives and sustainable solutions for its projects. As a strategic benefit, Bentley’s ELS helps organizations such as Aibel 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.
