Bentley Software Extends Efficiency to Water, Gas
Bentley Systems, Incorporated has extended the functionality of its Expert Designer V8i beyond electric utility networks to include water, gas, and communications infrastructure. As a result, utility owner-operators and engineering contractors can now use the software's capabilities to enhance efficiency and increase throughput of other utility network design projects.
The software merges network design and work management in a single environment, integrating network modeling, design engineering, and detailed design cost data for a wide range of utility infrastructure to deliver projects on time and on budget. Because the software’s architecture is GIS and work-management system independent, designers and estimators can easily integrate the software into existing GIS and graphics environments, including MicroStation V8i, Bentley Electric V8i, Bentley Gas V8i, Bentley Water V8i, GE Energy’s Smallworld, and ESRI’s ArcGIS.
