One of Bentley’s market-leading software tools, it’s prevalent and powerful CDE (common data environment) tool ProjectWise 365 is now available to everyone without a subscription fee through the end of September of this year.
Bentley Helps Working from Home
Used worldwide in AEC industries and particularly for large infrastructure projects, ProjectWise 365 is a cloud service (SaaS) based software system that helps users collaborate, view and share documents, and track and manage activities in AEC workflows. Levering Microsoft 365 technology, ProjectWise 365 extends the reach of and accessibility to BIM and engineering data.
ProjectWise 365, working through a common standard web browser on multiple OS platforms, allows users to review documents and capture and manage markups, in addition to storing engineering and architectural plan documents. The system supports RFIs and transmittals and enables users to track “assigned” issues from personal dashboards.
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.
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.”
Gregory J. Ellwanger, P.E., Project Engineer for BLA, Inc. said, “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.”
ProjectWise 365 is part of Bentley’s comprehensive effort to help both user organizations and end users to work remotely, providing tools, information, and resources including FAQs, videos, webinars and other technical assets.
