Trust our experts
You are constantly seeking more efficiency, especially for the complex design processes in your industry. Trust the experts at Cadac Group. We have 25 years of experience in the creation, management, and sharing of digital design information.
Optimize your design process and data management
Our solutions help you by optimizing your design process and your data management. We always use the best practices within your industry as our starting point, thereby helping you to both minimize failure costs and get more out of your digital design.
The digital design as an information source
Increasingly, your digital design is the digital information source for project execution; not only for the project leader, but also for suppliers and buyers. Consider BIM 360 in the architectural, engineering, and construction industries, or 3D prototyping for the manufacture of machines and equipment.
Autodesk & Microsoft SharePoint
Our solutions to create, manage, and share digital design information are based on software from leading partners such as Autodesk and Microsoft.
As the only Platinum Partner in the Benelux region, we have joined an elite group of Autodesk resellers. We do more than just provide Autodesk software packages, we also help with their implementation. Our consultants and trainings help you make the most of each software package.
We also develop solutions based on Microsoft SharePoint, such as our Cadac Organice Suite. With this suite, managing and sharing files for complex projects is more structured than ever.
Cadac PDM solutions
Here at Cadac Group, we are proud of the development of the Cadac Organice Suite. This solution has been successfully implemented by internationally operating clients worldwide.
Collaborating on complex, capital projects is easier than ever before with this engineering collaboration solution. We have used our 25 years of experience to develop our Cadac Organic Suite, which is based on Microsoft SharePoint and Autodesk Vault. The solution provides the ideal basis for the management and sharing of digital engineering data and documents - on premise, in the cloud, or as a hybrid solution.More about our Cadac Organice Suite

Your ideas and designs shape our environments
When designing our environment as a society, we seek optimal and efficient coordination on matters like the landscape, infrastructure, factories, buildings, and everything that is made in them. With the solutions of Cadac Group and our sister company NedGraphics, the creation, management, and sharing of the designs that shape our world is a simpler process. And more importantly, the workflow is better coordinated.
Your complex processes require excellent software
We believe in the Autodesk and Microsoft SharePoint products. We use these leading solutions together with our 25 years of experience in your industry to optimize your design processes to produce better digital designs and even more efficient document management.
More than 25 years of business
Cadac Group began as the CAD Advies Centrum (advisory centre) in 1986. Founder Jan Baggen was 20 at the time, and he was studying engineering at Zuyd Hogeschool (Zuyd University) in Heerlen.
In 1998, Baggen won the Manager of the Year award at the age of 32 (still the youngest winner ever). And rightly so, because under his leadership, the company grew to become an international organization with branches in Europe, the US, and Australia that has an annual turnover of approximately €30 million. Jan Baggen still lives near the headquarters in Heerlen, with his wife and three children.
NedGraphics, the market leader in digital geo-information in the Netherlands
In 2007, NedGraphics was taken over by the Cadac Group, making Cadac Group the largest provider of Autodesk digital design software in the Benelux region.
For the past 25 years, NedGraphics has been the market leader in digital geo-information, and the company helps many Dutch municipalities and other governmental authorities with the organization of our landscape. Many market players involved with rules and regulations also use the digital solutions of NedGraphics.
We develop software solutions to create, manage, and share design information. Together, in very close collaboration with our users.

Corporate IT Responsibility
For every activity, we focus on achieving a more efficient design process for your industry. This enables us to contribute to a faster and more efficient construction process that produces less waste and that demonstrates respect for social and environmental consequences. We view Corporate IT Responsibility as a process rather than an ultimate goal in itself. Above all, however, we view sustainable business practices as an integral part of our operations. We go even further than is legally required for our sustainable business practices. Within Corporate IT Responsibility, we focus on three pillars.
Three pillars for a more sustainable policy
Sustainable business practices
With our industry-solutions and Cadac Organice Suite, we have a considerable asset that enables design and construction processes to proceed more efficiently with reduced failure costs and less waste.
That is not only economically advantageous, it is also more sustainable. Owing to these solutions, project stakeholders can physically meet less often and paper consumption is dramatically reduced.
Sustainable business practices
To help you fully develop as an employee at Cadac Group, we provide you with development plans and trainings.
As an organization, we work hard every day to make our ecological footprint even smaller, through initiatives such as those to reduce paper, gas, and energy consumption in our offices and cut back on distances travelled by our personnel. At the initiative of Cadac Group sister company Landgoed Kunderhorst BV transformed 20 hectares of land into estate and included 3 hectares of new greenery close to our head office in Heerlen. This is enough to fully offset the CO2 emissions of our entire vehicle fleet.
It feels good to make a positive contribution to society. We do this by supporting local initiatives and charities such as War Child, WNF, Kika, and the Liliane Foundation. Our own initiatives, such as free training programmes and guest lectures for students, are also high on our agenda.
What's more, we organize BIM and Digital Prototyping events to raise awareness about how to reduce construction and failure costs and material waste.

We aim for perfection
Better service thanks to your feedback
To continuously improve in all areas and obtain regular feedback from clients about our services and service provision, we have standardized and professionalized our client satisfaction surveys. The feedback gives us the opportunity to better understand what our customers feel is important, and to serve them even better.
Autodesk also measures the level of client satisfaction worldwide at Autodesk Partners. As a result of the high level of appreciation expressed via these surveys, Cadac Group was the only Autodesk Partner in the Benelux region to be promoted to the rank of Autodesk Platinum Partner in May 2013. This means that we deliver top quality at the highest level.
98% satisfaction with our service
As Autodesk Platinum Partner, we also aim for perfection. This strong focus on achieving a higher level of client satisfaction is therefore bearing fruit.
As a result of the Autodesk client satisfaction surveys that took place during November 2014 and January 2015, it became clear that 98% of the clients surveyed were satisfied with our service. 21% gave us scores of seven or eight out of ten in various areas, and 77% actually gave us nothing but nines and tens!
Excellent Net Promoter Score
The Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a powerful indicator expressing clients' appreciation of our services. This score, on a scale from 0 to 100, indicates the extent to which clients recommend our products and services to others.
Cadac Group has set itself the goal of a minimum score of 56. On the basis of the surveys that took place between November 2014 and January 2015, a score of 75.3 was achieved. This is an achievement well above the average for the Benelux countries, northern Europe, and the EMEA region. In addition, the response rate was also exceptionally high compared with these regions. In other words, our clients have a greater willingness to assess us than is the case for other Autodesk partners in these regions.
