February 22, 2018 marks ADD Systems’ 45th anniversary. It is hard to believe that it has been that long since Bruce A. Bott launched the first release of the product, but the evidence of our rich history is woven throughout our company, and our successful growth speaks to it.
- From 1 employee to more than 150
- From 1 user to over 18,000
- From a small home office to 4 regional offices and dozens of remote employees
- From an R&D budget of few thousand dollars per year to multiple millions of dollars today
And the list goes on.
ADD Systems is still going strong because we are committed to the success of you, our clients, and we are driven to provide solutions that meet and exceed your expectations.
“I remember when Bruce first started ADD Systems. He was working from the house, and there were always piles of that green lined computer paper around him and plenty of flow chart drafts. Even marketing materials were spread around the family room, with the kids stuffing envelopes in the evenings.
Bruce would travel in and out of New York City in the late evenings, the only hours he could reserve time on one of Digital Equipment Corporation’s (DEC) machines. With the rest of his time, he was on-site at Bill Dixon’s office, our first client.
Bruce was committed to say the least. His passion from the beginning anchored the company and set in motion a culture of innovation and commitment to customer success that is still strong today.”
Gale Bott, Secretary / Treasurer
Those strong roots brought us to where we are now. In the beginning we provided software to handle pieces of your business and we served it up on DEC PDP-8 computer hardware. Now we have a fully integrated end-to-end solution that reaches right out to your customers’ hands, and, with the cloud, you don’t even need to know what hardware it’s using.
“There have been so many exciting technological advancements in the last 45 years and I expect nothing less in the future. As people, devices and equipment get more and more connected, and processes become more automated, I have no doubt that ADD will be here, listening to our clients and paving the way for them to travel smoothly into the future.”
Rob Culbertson, Senior Vice President and COO
What got us here today is our commitment to our clients. Our passion for your success is leading us toward some exciting new developments this year and will continue to lead us to create products that we haven’t even dreamed of yet. We are dedicated to your pursuit of excellence and our goal has and always will be to give you the tools to meet and exceed your needs – now and in the next 45 years.
