News Alert: IMMCO Joins Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription Program
Leading U.S. Provider of GIS, Software, Mapping, and Network Design Services to Broadband Industry Gets Unrestricted Access to Comprehensive Software Portfolio and Training for Single Annual Fee
EXTON, Pa. – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for the infrastructure that sustains our world, today announced that IMMCO, Inc., the leading U.S. provider of GIS, software, mapping, and network design services to the broadband industry, has joined Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription (ELS) program. Bentley’s innovative ELS provides competitive advantage while reducing annual software costs by granting infrastructure professionals unrestricted access to a comprehensive portfolio of architectural, engineering, construction (AEC), geospatial, and operations software for a single annual fee. Built on a common platform, the ELS portfolio includes more than 300 integrated and interoperable design, analysis, and collaboration software products that help increase the productivity of both local and widely distributed project teams.
“Bentley’s products are well accepted in the broadband industry and are frequently requested by our customers,” said Dr. Ramesh P. Iyer, president of IMMCO. “At the same time, we regularly recommend Bentley products to our customers as the best and most innovative approach to project challenges. Both scenarios require the flexibility to easily access Bentley products on demand. Our new Bentley ELS program affords us this flexibility, while also enabling us to quickly and cost-effectively tailor our software toolset to meet our changing project mix.”
IMMCO uses Bentley’s communications products, including Bentley Fiber, Bentley Coax, and Bentley Inside Plant, to execute a wide range of projects in support of the broadband industry. IMMCO’s projects include field engineering such as mapping, surveying and data capture, inside plant documentation, as-built verification, new network segment design, data conversion and integration, and GIS solutions. Among IMMCO’s customers are Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Charter Communications, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Cox Communications, and Mediacom Communications Corp., among others.
The Bentley ELS gives IMMCO’s teams a quick, cost-effective way to provide technically creative alternatives and sustainable solutions for their projects. As a strategic benefit, the Bentley ELS helps organizations such as IMMCO become more agile. Project starts can happen faster, teams can reconfigure for new opportunities more quickly, and no-charge pilots allow new technology to be infused into projects more readily. In addition, ELS agreements can include partners, extending the agility and multiplying the benefits in global projects.
Bentley’s ELS also supports the use of software in multiple countries on a pooled license basis, which is crucial to a global firm like IMMCO. This enables distributed teams to balance software supply and demand across offices, saving money and maximizing worldwide license utilization.
Dr. Iyer added, “IMMCO’s involvement with Bentley goes beyond that of being a user. We are also proud to be a member of the Bentley Developer Network. This allows us to build on Bentley’s software advancements and introduce innovative solutions of our own into the marketplace, giving us an important additional competitive advantage.”
IMMCO, an integrated solutions provider headquartered in Alpharetta, Ga., has been delivering engineering, geospatial, and software services to leading companies in the broadband industry for the past 14 years. The company’s staff includes project managers, design engineers, software and GIS specialists, and other qualified personnel. Its overseas team, consisting of highly educated and experienced professionals, complements IMMCO’s U.S. service team.
IMMCO has formed many strategic alliances with other industry-leading companies in the broadband, software, and GIS verticals. These alliances contribute to a strong team with superior capabilities. For additional information about IMMCO, visit http://www.immcoinc.com.
