Bentley Systems makes two acquisitions

Written by 

Bentley Systems, Incorporated, said that it has acquired Enterprise Informatics, Incorporated and Exor Corporation. The Enterprise Informatics eB Insight software provides configuration and change management capabilities for mission-critical infrastructure asset operations for the energy, nuclear, rail and government sectors. Exor information modeling software provides for the management and operations of linear networks for infrastructure, including roads and railways.

These strategic acquisitions accelerate Bentley's focus on value creation for owner-operators, enabling operations and maintenance to take full advantage of information modeling, and thus realize the potential of "intelligent" infrastructure assets. Bentley's "AssetWise" platform, newly announced Feb. 9, will combine multiple information modeling services to improve the life-cycle management and operational performance, safety, compliance, and governance of infrastructure assets while increasing the return on investment for owner-operators.

"These two acquisitions anchor the next stage in Bentley's progression as an infrastructure software provider," CEO Greg Bentley said. "In AssetWise we see a tremendous opportunity - driven by advances in computing and information modeling - to substantially increase owner-operators' return on investment, furthering our corporate mission of sustaining infrastructure."
