Bentley launches cloud services subscription program

DUBAI, November 17, 2015

Bentley Systems, a global leader in providing construction solutions, has launched a new, comprehensive subscription program for cloud-based access to collaboration services and apps, managed services, administration of term licenses, professional services.

The Bentley Institute Learnservices, and new Connect Edition Cloud Services are part of the company's efforts to advance commercial innovation.

With the new Bentley cloud services subscription program, user organizations can subscribe to any or all of these offerings within the framework of a predictable annual budget.

The program is designed to be equitable and flexible; organizations will set their subscription level to an annual budget that matches their anticipated usage; only services actually used will be charged quarterly against the subscription balance; the subscription balance never expires, so when actual usage does not match anticipated usage, any remaining balance rolls forward – in other words, there is no “use it or lose it” risk.

CEO Greg Bentley said: "Connecting through cloud services is so fundamentally valuable to our users, their projects, and their enterprises that we want to eliminate any commercial deterrent to user organizations’ taking full advantage. As an enterprise user of many cloud services, I think we have worked out how to improve on the vendors’ business models we’ve seen to date."

"We’re introducing all the benefits of being connected, but with full visibility and  accountability for costs, and without headaches or risks to budget. We believe that our Cloud Services Subscription program, like our many commercial innovations that have preceded it, provides our users with the simplest and fairest approach possible," he stated.

“Our user organizations will continue their Select subscriptions for Bentley software licenses they already own, and our larger accounts will continue with their Enterprise License Subscription at a fixed annual fee. However, our ProjectWise passports, visas, and Connect Edition cloud services for collaboration, and our other Connect Edition cloud services, will be provided through this new commercial approach so that our incentives directly align with the value users generate from their actual utilization,” he added.

Malcolm Walter, the chief operating officer, and champion of many of Bentley’s other commercial innovations, said: "It is pretty simple, actually. We have two decades of experience with subscription programs, beginning with our Select program."

"One of the things we’ve learned is that our user organisations want a predictable, annual budget. The other is – and this is perhaps most important of all – they only want to pay for the software and services that they have actually used. Our new Bentley Cloud Services Subscription program hits the mark in each case, enabling our users to take full advantage of all of our collaboration apps and cloud services with no ‘Gotchas!" he added.-TradeArabia News Service
