Bentley, Microsoft Azure Platform offer dashboard software

Bentley Systems, using Microsoft's Azure Platform, has launched the Bentley Transmittal Service to help sustain infrastructure to architecture, engineering, construction, and operations.

11/08/2011


Bentley Systems Inc. has announced an expansion of its strategic relationship with Microsoft Corp. Through its commitment to the Microsoft Azure Platform partner program, Bentley is bringing a broad range of Azure-cloud-based services for sustaining infrastructure to architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) worldwide at an accelerated pace. Initial offerings on Azure will include the new Bentley Transmittal Services, enabling AECO organizations to accurately and securely package, and deliver, receive, and track transmittals through a dashboard portal. These shared services will benefit the users of both the ProjectWise collaboration platform and the AssetWise platform for operations information modeling by reducing risk, saving time, and providing greater visibility into project status.

Bentley Transmittal Services includes a dashboard that provides notifications and links to a secure transmittal portal where organizations can see all the transmittals that pertain to their projects. Users will have the option to deploy the portal onsite or online and connect with their existing ProjectWise or AssetWise implementations. The same dashboard serves as a transmittal registry, which records all acknowledgements and tracks all status changes.

Bentley Transmittal Services will include the following functionality:

  • Transmittal creation and publishing – to create a transmittal package directly from the engineering data source, and send email notifications to external recipients;
  • Transmittal delivery and response – to view a transmittal package, acknowledge and download the package, and respond with decisions, text comments, markups, and attachments, all through a portal;
  • Transmittal response tracking and status – to view responses per recipient to find out who has not yet acknowledged/responded, to send reminders as email notifications about due/overdue acknowledgements or responses to external recipients, and to show in which transmittal and/or submittal packages a specific work-in-progress document was included.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
