Bentley Systems Opens Up Full Access to ProjectWise 365 and Waives Subscription Fees through September 30
Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software and digital twins services for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, today announced it has opened up its ProjectWise 365 cloud service, including waiving subscription fees through September 30, 2020, to virtually connect infrastructure project participants forced to work from home.
ProjectWise 365, leveraging Microsoft 365 technology and office productivity tools, extends the reach and accessibility of BIM and infrastructure engineering data to facilitate collaboration and design review across the ecosystem of project stakeholders. As an “instant-on” cloud service accessed through a web browser to simplify design review, transmittals, RFIs, information sharing, and issues resolution, ProjectWise 365 is perfectly suited for quick adoption while working from home, eliminating the need for error-prone combinations of generic technologies such as “drop boxes” and PDF.
In 2019 Bentley Systems was ranked by the ARC Advisory Group as the #1 provider of Collaborative BIM for its enterprise-scalable ProjectWise Design Integration offerings, and Microsoft cited Bentley as one of the top 25 companies in terms of Azure usage globally. In the development of ProjectWise 365, extending infrastructure engineering workflows to all users of Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud services, Bentley leveraged its market-leading experience in meeting the collaboration and work-sharing challenges of distributed project delivery teams.
- The enterprises using ProjectWise Design Integration for work-sharing, which include 74 of the ENR Top 100 Design Firms, have been telling us that they credit ProjectWise for sustaining their project productivity over the forced transition to work from home, said Dustin Parkman, VP, Project Delivery for Bentley.
- Now, by broadly and immediately opening up access to our new simplified ProjectWise 365 cloud service, we’re extending ProjectWise advantages in collaboration and design review to infrastructure engineering project teams at every scale. By fully ‘digitally’ enabling every infrastructure professional, we hope to support their resilience in surmounting this crisis.
- The present work-from-home conditions and coordination with multiple parties highlight how critical it is to our business and our role as prime consultant on projects, that our project teams always stay connected and productive. ProjectWise 365 cloud services enable us to rapidly deploy a common BIM collaboration environment that avoids the data silos, coordination delays, and the other limitations we’ve experienced while using network drives, file-sharing services, and email. ProjectWise 365 allows us to coordinate designs more quickly and reduce risk in contractual exchanges, regardless of the location of project participants, adding resilience to our design practice and increasing our ability to deliver high-quality projects on schedule, Gregory J. Ellwanger, P.E., Project Engineer for BLA, Inc. said.

The OPC Foundation will continue to expand its role as the “United Nations of Automation” - the foundation where different organizations work together to standardize and harmonize.
Across a range of industries around the world, Plant Operations have heavy investments in expensive machinery that are critical to their success. Meticulous planned and reactive maintenance of this machinery and infrastructure is a key component of continuous and efficient operations. And in today’s environment, any advantage can mean the difference between gaining new work and losing a customer.
