Bentley Software Selected No. 1 in National Survey

Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that its Haestad Methods product line has been selected as the No. 1 water resources modeling software in a national survey. The survey, commissioned by Bentley, was conducted across the readership of CE News’ Civil Connection, a leading civil engineering newsletter. This follows on the heels of the People’s Choice Award that Bentley’s WaterGEMS product in its Haestad line won at the American Water Works Association Annual Conference and Exposition and is being celebrated by Bentley through special limited-time promotional offers.

The survey asked licensed civil engineering professionals employed by leading consulting engineering, survey, and construction firms and key public works departments, utilities, and municipalities about their software preferences in seven categories of water resources modeling software. Bentley’s Haestad solutions earned the No. 1 position – receiving up to more than three times the top responses of the closest competing products – in the following five categories:
&#149 Water distribution
&#149 Transient analysis
&#149 Wastewater conveyance
&#149 Stormwater networks
&#149 General hydraulics
In the detention pond category Intelisolve’s product came in first, and in the floodplain modeling category the Hydrologic Engineering Center’s (HEC’s) product took the top position.

The survey respondents also said that ease of use is their foremost requirement for water resources modeling software, and that they found Bentley’s Haestad Methods products to be the easiest to use.

To celebrate Haestad Methods solutions being selected as the No. 1 water resources modeling software, Bentley is offering, for a limited time, a 20 percent license-fee discount on all of the “No. 1 products” in its Haestad line.
