Bentley Adds Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Capabilities Through Acquisition of gINT Software

Acquisition of Leader in Geotechnical Data Management Includes gINT Enterprise for Lifecycle Interoperability of Subsurface Data

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Be Inspired: Infrastructure Best Practices Symposium and Awards -- Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for the infrastructure that sustains our world, today announced, at this invitation-only gathering of top users from around the globe, that it has acquired gINT Software. Headquartered in Santa Rosa, Calif., gINT Software has been a leader in geotechnical and geoenvironmental products since its founding in 1986. The company's newest product, gINT Enterprise, maximizes the value of centrally managed subsurface data through multi-project reporting and dramatically extended querying power. Offering a powerful and efficient solution for transportation operations, engineering consultancies, plants, campuses, and state and federal agencies with vast quantities of geotechnical data, gINT Enterprise facilitates the valuable reuse of subsurface mapping information to better serve civil, structural, geotechnical, and environmental information processes for owner-operators.

"This extension of our portfolio into the geotechnical and geoenvironmental arena came about through a shared vision between Bentley and gINT. We both recognize and embrace the tremendous opportunities for value creation that can be realized through enhanced interoperability and increased data reuse within information modeling, now to include the subsurface mapping that is a vital aspect for every infrastructure project," said CEO Greg Bentley. "'Intra-operating' software from Bentley will introduce information modeling that extends to conditions below the ground. And Bentley's new i-model 'currency of exchange,' for change-managed deliverables, will facilitate the full integration of geotechnical specialists' project contributions. Infrastructure project quality will benefit from finally incorporating geotechnical workflows within information modeling.

 

 

"On behalf of all Bentley colleagues, I welcome gINT users to the Bentley user community and gINT colleagues to the Bentley team. We look forward to working with both to 'mainstream' further innovations in geotechnical and geoenvironmental applications."

 

 

"We are excited to be joining Bentley, especially given the synergies between Bentley's broad portfolio of engineering tools for sustaining infrastructure and gINT's subsurface expertise," said Salvatore Caronna, president and CEO of gINT Software, who is being named Bentley director of product management, Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Products.

 

 

Caronna continued, "Thousands of infrastructure professionals already have both Bentley and gINT products as part of their toolsets, and they have wished they could take simultaneous advantage of their respective innovative capabilities. Integrating these products opens the door to immediate benefits in transportation, mapping, and engineering projects of all types. One case in point: by integrating gINT Enterprise, other gINT products, and Bentley's AEC-leading geospatial applications and servers, we will be creating unprecedented solutions for geotechnical investigations and environmental monitoring and remediation."

 

 

With the phased rollout of gINT Enterprise, infrastructure professionals can expect to:

    --  Report on and query subsurface data from an unlimited number of
        projects,
    --  Standardize how an organization's data is entered, imported, stored, and
        reported,
    --  Share data with related software programs including CAD, GIS,
        contouring, and modeling applications, and more,
    --  Visualize gINT data using the software's extension for ArcGIS.

 

 

Users of gINT software number in the thousands and range from one-person firms to the world's largest and most prestigious multinational engineering organizations. Among them are 32 departments of transportation, the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, 34 districts of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S.D.A., the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the California Department of Water Resources, municipalities and regional governmental agencies around the world, major universities, and leading engineering organizations such as URS Corporation, Terracon, Bechtel, SKM, Arup, CH2M HILL, and many more.
