South African CAD Company Opens U.S. Headquarters
Friday, January 11, 2019 | Comments

South African company RapidDeploy is opening U.S. headquarters, in Austin, Texas. RapidDeploy offers a cloud-based CAD platform.

In August, RapidDeploy teamed with AT&T to provide public-safety answering points (PSAPs) with access to RapidDeploy’s cloud-based platform.

In October, the company hired Reinhard Ekl, formerly with RapidSOS, as chief operating officer (COO). The company said it will continue to hire new employees in Austin, working in coordination with the growing team in Cape Town, South Africa.

“With customer demand booming and the U.S. market longing for modern technology to replace their outdated infrastructure, it was time to move our headquarters to the U.S.,” RapidDeploy CEO Steve Raucher said. “We’ll be closer to some of our most important customers and partners, and are excited to begin this new chapter.”

The company said its CAD technology is more reliable, faster to deploy, more cost-effective, and richer in interfaces and features than on-premise CAD software.
