Coverage for perpetual and term licenses

SELECT is our comprehensive program for the support of your Bentley applications.

Through SELECT, your users stay productive, your investment in perpetual licenses is preserved and kept evergreen, and you can leverage term licenses if you prefer a pure subscription model. SELECT provides you with the flexibility you need to adapt to changing project requirements while keeping expenditures under control.

Realizing Value from Your Investment in Perpetual Licenses


By covering your perpetual licenses under a SELECT subscription, you will receive:

  • Software updates

  • 24/7/365 technical support provided by our world-class team of application experts

  • Country-wide License Pooling

  • Annual Portfolio Balancing, to exchange perpetual licenses once a year for other titles

  • CONNECTservices, new Azure-based services for project collaboration, adaptive learning, and personal mobility.

  • Flexibility with Term Licenses


If you would rather subscribe to your licenses or need the flexibility to handle spikes in your workload, take advantage of SELECT quarterly term licenses. You gain access to Bentley’s complete application portfolio.

You could benefit from the use of up to date software, as well as the same comprehensive set of services provided for your perpetual licenses. With a term license, you can match your license needs to your project requirements and never be out of alignment. Term licenses are fair and equitable. You only pay for what you use.
