DSM Soft Joins Bentley's Enterprise License Subscription Program

Leading Provider of Engineering and Geospatial Data Services Headquartered in India Gets Unlimited Access to Entire ELS Software Portfolio for a Fixed Annual Fee

Exton, Pa. - Aug. 28, 2006 - Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that DSM Soft Private Limited, a leading provider of engineering and geospatial data services headquartered in India, has joined Bentley's Enterprise License Subscription (ELS) program.

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, and 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.

"Two enablers of DSM Soft's ability to deliver high-quality services at affordable costs are its wide-ranging technical expertise and resource scalability - both of which are fully supported by our new ELS," said Ramesh Ananthakrishnan, managing director, DSM Soft. "When it comes to engineering and geospatial software selection, the ELS frees our technical teams from typical purchasing and licensing constraints, allowing them to make their choices based on their knowledge and years of experience. So they end up with the best, most advanced solutions."

Continued Ananthakrishnan, "Moreover, the new program allows us to quickly scale our licensing to meet changing market and project demands - all while reducing our software costs."

As a strategic benefit, Bentley's ELS helps organizations such as DSM Soft 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.
