Meet SolidCAD – On August 1st, Cansel Merges Autodesk Business Operations into their SolidCAD company!!


Constant Changes, here to stay….

That’s correct, we are changing names – one more time….This is under the Cansel Growth Strategy – by eliminating the confusion that folks might have had….

Most users we speak to, they see and understand that Cansel is a Survey Equipment and Plotter/plotting reseller – and not necessarily an Autodesk reseller…

And SolidCAD being already a leading reseller for Autodesk in Ontario, and owned by Cansel, it simply made more sense.

So on August 1st of 2017, Cansel announced the consolidation of their national operations forming the largest Canadian Autodesk Platinum Partner, newly branded as SolidCAD, a Cansel Company

You can read more about on the official news release: SolidCAD

This means all Cansel employees (including Charles and Michel) that were related to Autodesk software or services are now working under the SolidCAD company name and branding. So don’t worry, it is business as usual, nothing changes from our side of things….

ALL of our full time employees, including myself, are staying with SolidCAD, this is simply a growing stage….What I see as better for our clients….

You can also get more info on the Consolidation at the following site: SolidCAD FAQ

The advantages for our clients are:
(1) Customers of Atlantic CAD, A Cansel company will continue to enjoy, without disruption, the same unequaled levels of service to which they were accustomed, since all members of the existing team will be part of the newly opened offices of SolidCAD in Hanwell

(2) SolidCAD being the largest Autodesk Platinum Reseller in Canada (and being a Canadian Owned Company) with more than 12 offices across the country means long term investment in the local Atlantic economy. (4 offices just in the Atlantic area)

(3) And of course, since many of our customers have been asking for Atlantic CAD Solutions to become their reseller – now we have the means and the opportunity to do so!! And this has paid off for many of our customers already since the original merger back in May of this year (2017).

For Us, for Atlantic CAD, A Cansel Company (now SolidCAD in Atlantic Canada), this brings a level of marketing for our services and our products that Atlantic CAD (by itself) did not have. It means we’ll be able to provide RVT 2 DWG or Lumion to more offices, more clients, more users across Canada. It also means that we will have access to new Application Experts and will be able to teach and support more products and have more advanced classes – more often!!

The Future is Bright and I look forward to this new partnership,working as SolidCAD.

Until next month, Keep on CADing!!
