Company history
The first Library of graphic symbols for a CAD
system was delivered at the end of 1985 to ABB.
For a long time progeSOFT worked developing vertical applications for the industrial environment.
In 1999 progeCAD became one of the founding members of ITC (IntelliCAD Technology Consortium).
The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium is an organization of CAD software developers who develop applications for IntelliCAD, a Computer-aided design engine. The IntelliCAD engine, which is based on the Theiga library from the Open Design Alliance, reads and writes the ".dwg" data format – a widely used file format for storing both 
graphic and textual information of CAD-related software applications.
Based on the IntelliCAD engine, ProgeSOFT developed its 
high end CAD solution, progeCAD Professional.
The industry had starved for a comprehensive software package for handling of 2D/3D drawings based on
the industrial standard at a fair price.  progeCAD managed to meet the needs.

Company mission
Based on our technical expertise, we serve our customers’ needs through products, services and solutions that deliver long-term benefits and meet the highest standards of quality, reliability and flexibility.
