Washington State Department of Transportation Selects Bentley To Provide Transportation Design Software; Replaces CAiCE With InRoads; Joins Bentley Enterprise License Subscription Program.
EXTON, Pa. -- Bentley Systems Bentley Systems, Incorporated, provides software for the "Design, construction and operation of the world's infrastructure". The company’s software serves the building, plant, civil, and geospatial vertical markets in the areas of architecture, engineering, construction (AEC) , Incorporated today announced that the Washington State Department of Transportation The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), led by a Secretary and overseen by the Governor, is a Washington governmental agency that constructs, maintains, and regulates the use of the state's transportation infrastructure. (WSDOT WSDOT Washington State Department of Transportation ) has selected Bentley as its primary provider of software for engineering and surveying practices.

Any use of computer software to solve engineering problems. With the improvement of graphics displays, engineering workstations, and graphics standards, computer-aided engineering (CAE) has come to mean the computer manager, WSDOT. "We were confident InRoads would meet our needs because it is widely used in the industry - by other DOTs and many large consultants."
"Additional factors in our decision to move to InRoads," continued Bauer, "are Bentley's excellent track record of maintaining compatibility of legacy data as it introduces new technology and software, as well as its industry experience working with DOTs."
WSDOT's individual regions will make a gradual transition from CAiCE to InRoads, with the goal being to start all new projects in InRoads. Once WSDOT completes its transition to InRoads, it is anticipated there will be 150 to 200 concurrent users of the software statewide.
WSDOT has also opted to join the Bentley Enterprise License Subscription (ELS) program. "The ELS provides a cost-effective way for the DOT to manage its use of Bentley software and the transition to InRoads," said Bauer.
