Bentley Systems has received a 2018 Microsoft Partner of the Year award for helping Malaysia’s Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRTC) in going digital for a railway project. According to Microsoft, through this project, Bentley Systems demonstrated excellence in innovation and implementation of user solutions based on Microsoft technology.

These awards were distributed in 39 categories, and Bentley Systems received the award in the CityNext Partner of the Year category.

With more than 1.7 million people residing in just 94 square miles, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has one of the highest population densities globally. As a result, it is estimated that residents living in the Greater Klang Valley region collectively spend 280 million hours per year stuck in traffic, said Bentley Systems. The Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) line is the second line of MRTC’s Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit railway project, which will create better mobility for residents and make it possible to ease traffic by an estimated 160,000 cars daily, Bentley Systems said.

According to Bentley Systems, the SSP line is Malaysia’s largest infrastructure projects. It includes 11 interchange stations and created an estimated 130,000 job opportunities.

“We are honored to have received this prestigious award which recognizes Bentley as a provider of cloud-based software solutions powered by Azure, for the advancement of infrastructure projects throughout the world, and specifically for Mass Rapid Transit Corporation’s outstanding Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya line in Malaysia,” said Greg Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems. “MRTC is going digital, harnessing Bentley and Microsoft technology to deliver one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects ever undertaken in Asia.”

Founded in 1984, Bentley Systems provides engineers, architects, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owner-operators with comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure.
