Our philosophy: Long-standing and reliable partnerships – for 40 years
The ISD Group is one of the leading providers of comprehensive engineering solutions with an optimally coordinated product portfolio consisting of CAD, PDM and automation software. We can rely on four decades of experience in the field of engineering - no small achievement in the rapidly evolving software industry! The experience and know-how we have gained through the years make us a strong and reliable partner. Our software products HiCAD, HELiOS and HELiCON enjoy an excellent reputation as powerful, market-proven cutting-edge solutions.
Since its foundation in 1977 the ISD has constantly expanded – not only concerning its range of products and services, but also with regard to its sales territories. Today, the ISD Group is the only company in the world that can offer a consistent, industry-comprehensive all-in-one solution platform.
Our standards: Highly qualified specialists throughout all departments
One of our key strengths has always been the high qualification of our staff. The solutions and services of the ISD Group are developed and conceived by outstanding experts throughout all departments. Whether in Software Development, Consulting, Service or Sales – our specialists always work with the greatest commitment and dedication to meet the requirements of our customers. The great experience of our consultants is a key factor for the successful realisation of your projects – no matter whether a change of the CAD system, the integration of a PDM system, the development of a product configurator or complex changes of the software architecture including ERP integration is required, and no matter in which industry you work. In order to perfectly meet the demands of the different industries we are using, for each industry, specialists who understand the needs of our customers and know how to put them into practice.
Our credo: Permanent availability to customers
Right from the start, a close cooperation and good communication with our customers was very important for us. This also includes direct service and sales through our subsidiaries, as this enables us to learn about the most recent market trends directly from the feedback we get from the users of our software: We listen carefully to concrete suggestions of our customers during consulting, on trade fairs, in dialogues via Social Media, or in any other conversation, and will take them into account when we develop our software products.
Our endeavour: Constant innovation and efficiency
Throughout its existence, the ISD Group has always had an ability to anticipate key trends. Important features and developments such as the 2-D/3-D associativity, the freedom of choice between parametric and non-parametric designing, the PDM integration or the use of product configurators had already been realised in HiCAD, HELiOS and HELiCON a long time ago. Direct contact with our customers and short ways of communication enable us to detect new market requirements very early and respond to them with concrete solutions. Constant innovation and flexibility are the qualities that have made the ISD Group so successful!
Topics we are currently focussing on are, for instance, intelligent systems guiding the user through product development processes, constant optimisation of product model presentation and visualisation, or mobile solutions. We have already developed solutions for many of these topics. Be assured that we will continue to provide you with innovative and practice-oriented products in the future!
