SELECT Subscription

All PLAXIS VIP benefits are now part of the Bentley SELECT Subscription. With Bentley SELECT Subscription you still benefit from the latest releases of your PLAXIS software, special extensions and support from Plaxis technical experts. Upon purchasing a PLAXIS license also purchase a SELECT Subscription to ensure the tools and supporting services needed.

SELECT Subscription

SELECT is our comprehensive program for the support of your PLAXIS 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.

 Extended Features

The special extensions are modular enhancements to PLAXIS software products and are exclusively available to PLAXIS VIP members. They provide new or extra functionalities, are fully compatible with the base product and are easy to learn. For members of PLAXIS VIP there are several extra features available in PLAXIS 2D and PLAXIS 3D.


PLAXIS VIP protects your investment in geotechnical tools because it will keep your PLAXIS software up to date.
