Bentley Systems Inc (BSY) announced earlier this week a partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as the main government distribution contract aggregator for Bentley Systems, with the aim being to extend the company’s commitment to US federal, state and local government agencies.
The tie-up will enable Carahsoft, Bentley and the Bentley reseller ecosystem to work together and deliver the innovative solutions required by federal, state and local government agencies in order to step up the modernization and advancement of the country’s infrastructure.
The agreement will authorize Carahsoft to carry the full Bentley Systems software portfolio on a number of contract vehicles, including Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, OMNIA Partners, National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and Bentley Systems GSA MAS Schedule contracts, the two companies said.
Bentley Systems shares closed higher for a second consecutive trading session on NASDAQ on Wednesday. The stock went up 1.31% ($0.84) to $65.19, after touching an intraday high at $65.49. The latter is also a fresh all-time high.
Shares of Bentley Systems Inc have risen 60.92% so far this year.
