Johannesburg: Bentley Systems has acquired the eB services business of DocQnet Systems International, an organisation focused on project and asset information management solutions. It has also revealed that 10 of DocQnet’s highly skilled and experienced consultants have joined Bentley’s extensive Global Professional Services team dedicated to meeting the demands of Bentley users employing eB-based products and solutions worldwide. Through this acquisition and staff addition, Bentley has increased its capacity to provide professional services to its eB users in South Africa and elsewhere. eB is a pervasive enabler for information mobility across Bentley’s AssetWise infrastructure asset management software and services and ProjectWise system of collaboration servers and services for infrastructure projects.
“On behalf of my colleagues at Bentley, I welcome our new services team members from DocQnet Systems, including DocQnet’s former executive director, Cobus Rossouw. Each has in-depth knowledge of not only our eB-based offerings, but also of ProjectWise. At the same time, they bring a thorough understanding of local engineering requirements and best practices in South Africa. The addition of their world-class capabilities to our Global Professional Services team will help us address the rapidly growing demand for services provided by our eB Information Manager of relationships and changes within information elements throughout project and asset lifecycles. I also want to welcome to Bentley DocQnet Systems’ former Managing Director, Frederik Verhoef. Frederik, a trained industrial engineer who also holds a master’s degree in business leadership, joins Bentley as regional director, Sub-Saharan Africa,” said Al Gray, Bentley vice president.
