"I do not believe any other engineering software vendor is as well aligned with the infrastructure needs of Africa across all areas as Bentley is," says Tex van Deventer, managing director of the local office of Bentley Systems. "When you look at all the infrastructure drivers of a healthy economy, roads, bridges, railways, buildings, process plants, you find that Bentley design and management tools play a leading role. It is no wonder that Spoornet, ESKOM, SASOL and the whole of the mining industry appear on our very impressive list of local clients."
