The people behind CAD-Manufacturing Systems, Inc. (AKA CMS) have been in the CAD software industry for over three decades. Originally developing and selling the proprietary ProCADD software package, CMS now markets and sells CMS IntelliCAD, which is based on the IntelliCAD customizable CAD engine technology. And we believe in what we sell - we use CMS IntelliCAD internally also at partner corporation dedicated to crane advanced innovation and design.
CMS IntelliCAD users create complex drawings ranging from architectural and civil construction, mechanical, electrical installation diagrams to HVAC layouts. They can develop their own add-ons using CMS IntelliCAD's application programming interface (API) and take advantage of integrated add-ons such as QuoteCAD Manufacturing.
CMS IntelliCAD is delivered to its customers directly from its ecommerce website platform, though major IT retailers and through a global network of resellers. "Delivering world-wide and royalty-free are important benefits of membership in the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC)," said Vitor Neves, Chief Executive Officer of CMS.
Replacing proprietary CAD software with IntelliCAD technology
When we went searching for a new way to deliver CAD software to their existing customer base, their research led them to IntelliCAD where they found an open and flexible model for delivering sophisticated CAD technology. Instead of continuing to develop and invest in their proprietary ProCADD software, their membership in the ITC allows them to profitably supply CMS IntelliCAD to both pre-existing and new customers.
Vitor Neves, CEO of CMS, commented, "Joining the ITC offered a more cost effective solution for CMS when compared with joining other CAD partner programs or continuing to develop ProCADD."
Switching to CMS IntelliCAD from ProCADD allowed CMS to focus on delivering quality application solutions and support to their customers, while relying on the ITC IntelliCAD development team to deliver a high quality, high performance CAD platform.
