Bentley Haestad methods solutions selected No. 1


Exton, USA, October 3, 2007: Bentley Systems, Incorporated 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 published by ZweigWhite. 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:

  • Water distribution
  • Transient analysis
  • Wastewater conveyance
  • Stormwater networks
  • 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.

    In the survey, Bentley’s WaterCAD, WaterGEMS, HAMMER, SewerCAD, and SewerGEMS products in its Haestad line received more than three times the top responses of their closest competitors, among responses from water utilities and municipalities in the water distribution, transient analysis, and wastewater conveyance categories. Bentley’s StormCAD and CivilStorm topped the stormwater networks category, as did its CulvertMaster and FlowMaster in the general hydraulics category. Bentley’s PondPack came in second in the detention pond analysis category and its HEC-Pack came in third in the floodplain modeling category.

    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.
