On March 15, 1986, ACAD-Plus was formed with humble beginnings. The company initially performed AutoCAD© Drafting and AutoCAD© training services to customers in the Houston area. Glenn Seehausen founded the company on a principle of helping his customers perform their jobs with maximum efficiency and skill. Glenn equipped them with the necessary tools to succeed thus allowing the customer base to quickly realize a rapid ROI for his and ACAD-Plus' efforts. Glenn quickly established several niche markets and developed add-on products to AutoCAD© to solve industry specific problems. There were solutions for Plan & Profile Drawing Automation for Civil Engineering projects [P&P Plus], Electronic Panel Distribution Automation and Documentation [EPD-Plus], Plot Plan Drawings and Lot Analysis for Home Builders [The PlotPlan Software], and Facilities Space Management [FMG-Plus].
In the early 1990's, ACAD-Plus partnered with Cyco Software (now BlueCielo ECM Solutions) to resell it's AutoCAD© Viewer. That led to implementing their new document management software [AutoManager]. AutoManager (now BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise) has matured over the years as has ACAD-Plus and BlueCielo. The partnership remains in tact today. ACAD-Plus has been recognized by BlueCielo as the North American Partner of the Year in 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011 and the company was awarded the Global Partner of the year in 2013.
ACAD-Plus has consulted with over 2,000 customers since inception. Today, ACAD-Plus provides best-of-class Document Management solutions in Education, Corporate, and Public Sector Facilities Management/Real Estate environments.
