Advanced Computer Solutions Limited (ACS) are global providers of CAD solutions for the Architectural and Engineering industries.
ACS was established in 1996 to provide CAD software, support and training to the growing UK CAD market. By 1998, ACS had exclusive European rights to Caddie and in 2001 ACS purchased the Caddie software outright and have developed it ever since.
With headquarters in Cardington Bedfordshire UK, and an associated company Advanced Computer Solutions (PTY) Limited based in Centurion South Africa, ACS serve clients throughout the US regions, Europe, Africa and Australasia.
Our main product Caddie Professional was launched by the original authors Caddie Computer Aided Design (PTY) Limited in 1985 and was bought by ACS in 2001. ACS has developed the product ever since, focussing on ensuring ease of use and industry specific functionality, whilst ensuring compatibility with other CAD systems by utilising the DWG libraries produced by the Open Design Alliance, of which ACS are founder members.
In addition to Caddie Professional, ACS produces Caddie Budget - a low cost version of Caddie aimed at smaller users who do not have the need for the full industry specific functionality of Caddie Professional, Caddie Educational, for students and educational establishments and Caddie VIO - Photo-Realistic rendering of DWG models.
ACS also gets involved with Custom development for clients in niche markets with specific needs normally aligned with design or production. For clients wanting to develop their own custom solutions, Caddie Professional is an ideal platform, being DWG based and including a high level easy to use programming language for 3rd party development.
Caddie runs on Microsoft platforms: Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
Clients range from small private practices through to multi-national organisations. Caddie is also used in many secondary and higher level educational establishments.
The success of Caddie is based not only on the software itself, but also on the support and backup offered by the company and our resellers. ACS offers support and training to all our clients throughout the world. In addition we are able to provide hardware and installation services as required.
