We cultivate strategic partnerships

Our dynamic strategic partnerships enhance the power of our solutions. Currently we partner with these important technology frontrunners:

  • Autodesk Platinum Partner. For more than 30 years, we have partnered with this American software leader in 3D design software for applications such as construction engineering, mechanical engineering, and civil infrastructure. Our Platinum Partner designation requires a consistent “9” or “10” on customer satisfaction – proving our commitment to excellent service. We are currently the only Platinum Partner of Autodesk in the Benelux region, one of only a handful Autodesk partners in Europe, and one of the twenty best Autodesk partners worldwide.
  • Microsoft Gold Partner. As a Microsoft Partner, we help you build on sound technical and business expertise. We have a specific Microsoft-based application that is very different from what our competitors can offer. Our Cadac Organice Suite, which is based on the Microsoft SharePoint platform, is one of the only out-of-the-box SharePoint solutions. With this suite, creating, managing, and sharing digital files for your complex project is more efficient than ever.

cadac-channel-cam-specialization-640

CAM innovations in our Cadac Lab

The emergence of new design techniques (CAD) require new production methods (CAM). With our Digital Fabrication-team, we can help you to connect CAD and CAM like no other and to apply these new design and production methods within your product development process.

The Cadac Lab has state-of-the-art equipment such as a 3D scanner, 3D printer, CNC machine and robot arm. With themes like Robotics, Additive Manufacturing, Quality Control, Generative Design and Industry 4.0, we bridge the gap between CAD and CAM.

More than 30 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.

Corporate social 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.

  • Sustainable solutions
  • Sustainable business practices
  • Socially involved
over-ons-wind-turbines-1280

Sustainable solutions

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.

over-ons-kunderhorst-1280

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.

over-ons-weltania-1280

Socially involved

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.

over-ons-klanttevredenheid

We aim for perfection

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.

At Cadac Group, client satisfaction, quality, and service are top priorities. Every day, we strive to optimize our services and service provision, and where necessary modify them to the wishes of our clients.

94% 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.

The Autodesk client satisfaction surveys that took place during January 2020 and June 2020, show us that 94% of the clients surveyed were satisfied with our service. 24% gave us scores of seven or eight out of ten in various areas, and 75% actually gave us nothing but nines and tens!

over-ons-csat-1280

Excellent Altr Score

The Altr Score (Average Likelihood To Recommend) is a powerful indicator expressing clients' appreciation of our services. This score, on a scale from 0 to 10, 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 8.5. On the basis of the surveys that took place between May 2019 and August 2019, a score of 8.9 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.
