Bentley Systems Incorporated announced that David Evans and Associates, Inc. (DEA), an Oregon-based leader in the design and management of complex transportation, land development, energy, and water resources projects, 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 AEC software needs of subscribers, providing building, plant, civil, and geospatial solutions and supporting a managed environment for their AEC IT.

The total coverage at a fixed, discounted price means that organizations can increase their software productivity and reduce their total AEC software costs simultaneously. The unlimited access streamlines AEC software administration while the annual term simplifies budgeting and accounting.

Immediately, the Bentley ELS will give DEA a quick, cost-effective way to offer its clients creative technical alternatives and solutions in support of their projects.

As a strategic benefit, Bentley ELS helps organizations such as DEA 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.
