TCE Consulting Engineers Ltd. Joins Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription Program

Leading International Consulting Engineering Firm Gets Unlimited Access to Entire ELS Software Portfolio for Fixed Annual Fee

Greater Noida, India – Map India 2008 – 6 February 2008 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that TCE Consulting Engineers Ltd., a leading international consulting engineering firm providing services and sustainable solutions for power, transportation, water, building, manufacturing, spatial planning, and the environment that is part of the Tata Group of Companies, 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.

A.P. Mull, executive director and CEO of TCE Consulting Engineers, said, “The backbone of our organization is providing clients with time-bound, cost-effective, and innovative multidisciplinary engineering solutions for diverse projects.

“Our new Bentley ELS supports our ability to be innovative by providing quick access to end-to-end solutions for our projects. The comprehensive portfolio available to us lets our technical teams select software solutions based on the requirements of a specific project without increasing our budget to accommodate them.

“For example, TCE Consulting Engineers recently deployed Bentley WaterGEMS and HAMMER, which are included in our ELS, on a water distribution modeling and transient analysis project for the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewage Board. Other usages include AutoPIPE, Bentley’s pipe analysis solution, for power and other projects. By using these solutions we can deliver projects on time and on budget, and win future assignments based on our proven capabilities and accomplishments.”

The Bentley ELS gives TCE Consulting Engineers 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 TCE Consulting Engineers become more agile. Project starts can happen faster and teams can reconfigure for new opportunities more quickly. 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.
