Seequent to Begin Phasing Out gINT Support

Seequent, The Bentley Subsurface Company, recently announced that they will begin phasing out support for the gINT geotechnical borehole and data management software by January 2026. In an email to users sent on February 1, 2023, they announced their migration path timeline which should provide users plenty of time to migrate to OpenGround. From the email:

  • Effective January 1, 2023, you will continue to have 12 months of your usual product support. We will be working diligently to implement priority gINT workflows and assist you in migrating to our OpenGround platform.
  • Beginning January 1, 2024, gINT will enter Expiring Support status. This means, for the following 24 months, you can continue to make routine service requests, access software downloads, and receive critical security software updates.
  • Finally, in January 2026, gINT will enter Support Discontinued status, at which point you can continue to use the product but will receive no further support or updates.

gINT was first introduced in 1986 and has been the industry standard borehole log software for decades. However, as Seequent noted, it is “… a generation of software architecture that cannot be future-proofed for modern operating systems or manage ever-increasing data volumes.” OpenGround (Originally HoleBase) was launched in 2018 by Keynetix who was later acquired by Bentley. In December, Bentley decided to consolidate all of their geotechnical software under the Seequent brand, bringing together programs like gINT, OpenGround, LeapFrog, Plaxis, and GeoStudio, among others.
