Ensuring information mobility and integration from design to construction has long been a challenge for the transportation industry. With an increased emphasis on Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), intelligent 3D modeling and life cycle management of assets, information mobility has never been more important.
Attendees will learn how Bentley and Trimble are working together to improve the integrated workflow for design to construction to maintenance. This webinar will highlight these latest developments in Bentley’s OpenRoads and Trimble’s Business Center and the benefits brought to the transportation industry. Please join Mo Harmon, Bentley’s Solutions Executive, Road and Bridges and Tim McClannahan, Trimble’s Business Center – HCE Product Manager in this informative webinar.
