Bentley systems acquires Chennai-based Nadhi Information Technologies
Bentley Acceleration Initiatives announced the acquisition of Chennai-based Nadhi Information Technologies Pvt Ltd, a specialist in project controls, analytics, and decision support for construction supply chains.
Bentley Acceleration Initiatives is the internal incubator for strategic investments of Bentley Systems, the infrastructure engineering software company. Its objective is to bring together ecosystem partners in digital co-ventures. Nadhi aims to bring to Bentley a critical mass of field-experienced professionals in construction automation, attuned to their region’s specific challenges and project dynamics. The acquisition seeks to strengthen Bentley’s focus on Asia, which is experiencing huge demand for new construction of infrastructure and has a keen appetite for digital workflows to help address this need.
Some construction projects are now using Nadhi’s services to solve these challenges and improve their project delivery using digital workflows. Since offering lean construction consulting services in 2008, Nadhi has pioneered mobile-enabled project controls. In an offering explicitly configured for the needs of project teams in Asia, the integrated project controls in Nadhi’s nPulse software combines data-driven decision support and predictive analytics to give engineering and construction projects early warning of schedule risks and potential delays in milestone completion, advancing project planning and execution from reactive to proactive.
Nadhi serves some of India’s leading construction sector participants, including contractors Larsen & Toubro and Kalpataru Power Transmission Ltd, real estate developers Mahindra Lifespaces and RMZ, and owner-operators DMRC (Delhi Metro) and Welspun Enterprises.
Nadhi will add approximately 30 colleagues; its annualised revenues and profitability are not material to, and are not expected to meaningfully impact, the BSY financial outlook for 2021.
