Traditionally, one core piece of software, such as Autodesk AutoCAD or Bentley MicroStation, would be all that was needed to complete a project deliverable. However, in today’s complex environment of multi-discipline practices, that is no longer possible.

There is now a greater need for a number of fit-for purpose-technologies to successfully deliver on your clients’ requirements. Sticking with one vendor can limit your potential to deliver a project within financial, technical and collaborative benchmarks.

At Consult AEC, we enable our clients to take the guess work out of auditing which fit-for-purpose tool suits our client’s organisation. Our business takes a software-agnostic approach and has a nonexclusive arrangement with all our vendors – ensuring that we can deliver the perfect solution for a client’s requirement from multiple vendors if necessary.

Strategic Technology Partnership

We are proud to announce that Consult AEC will serve the Australia and New Zealand market as a key strategic partner for Bentley Systems, Incorporated.

Fari Fanaeyan, CEO of Consult AEC said, “Consult AEC will now take customer engagement to a new level and importantly provide its customers with expertise, backed by Bentley’s superior BIM and infrastructure technology, to allow for an all-encompassing solution offering.”

An important strategic alliance, Consult AEC has partnered with Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the global leader dedicated to providing architects, engineers, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owner-operators with comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure.

“We are delighted to announce this partnership with Consult AEC, which will extend the reach of Bentley’s solutions across the government and building industries”, said Bentley Systems Vice President SEAPac, Alan Savin.

“The increasing demand for Bentley solutions has meant that we needed to extend our reach through this key partnership to enable organisations to access our award-winning technologies and solutions,” Savin added.

Consult AEC was formed to ensure a superior end-to-end service offering supported by some of the most qualified, experienced and industry-respected consultants in Australia and New Zealand.
“In these economic times, trusted advice is critical to supporting our customers in achieving their business goals. The aspiration of the people behind Consult AEC is to help our customers succeed by bringing people and technology together,” said Fanaeyan.

“This new partnership will allow many more organisations to benefit from increased exposure to Bentley’s market-leading design, analysis, interoperable information management and mobility technologies, thanks to Consult AEC’s proven ability to serve a broad base of users across Australia and New Zealand,” said Savin.

Consult AEC will operate as a Bentley Solutions Integrator, utilising expert diagnostics and troubleshooting to match the technology needs of customers from a variety of world-class vendors. Further vendors will be added to the Consult AEC Partner Portfolio in the near future.
