F&S Partners Incorporated
In 2006, F&S Partners decided to complete its migration
from MicroStation/J to MicroStation V8. By joining Bentley’s
Enterprise Training Subscription (ETS) program, F&S was
able to acquire all the training needed to enable its designers
to continue working and learning a new version of software
without missing valuable time spent on projects.
To date, F&S has primarily attended open enrollment,
classroom learning sessions at Bentley’s local training
facility. Moving forward, it plans to take advantage of
more distance learning and OnDemand eLearning as
a supplement to its current training. With this blend of
learning tools, F&S will be able continually build the
skills of its employees while embracing new software
versions and technology standards like BIM.
The municipality of haarlem in the Netherlands established a
MicroStation User Group to help increase its efficiency in the
use of Bentley products through the sharing of best practices
within the group. The group determined that joining Bentley’s
Enterprise Training Subscription (ETS) was a cost-effective
way to smoothly migrate to MicroStation V8.
Organizationwide user training created the basis for staff to
“speak the same language,” and helped bring everyone up
to the same level of expertise in using Bentley’s software.
Later, the ETS was used to exploit advanced MicroStation
capabilities such as 3D modeling and rendering. Overall
savings from the E TS are derived from higher staff productivity,
better standardization of CAD drawings, and less time away
from the office for users.
