Our History

Software Design Associates has been serving the fence industry since the early 80's. In the spring of 1981, John O'Brien started an estimating program on an Apple 2.0 computer for Grand Fence in Billings, Montana. This program eventually developed into 'The Computer Fencing System', more commonly known as CFS. For the next 30 years, CFS continued to grow in size and popularity. Moving from the Apple computer to DOS and eventually to Windows. John and his long-term associate Ray Pearson expanded their clientelle from America to Canada and even to far-reaching places like Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Both of their children, Jenny and Colter, became programmers for Software Design Associates and have helped to maintain and expand CFS.

Over time, our team and our customers began envisioning a more powerful, more accessible, and more flexible version of CFS. And after years of careful planning, Fence.Cloud began to emerge as the next generation of our fencing software. With the same high standards for fence industry estimating and quality shop drawings, Fence.Cloud embodies the best aspects of CFS, while also taking into account the new needs of a modern fence company. We are proud to introduce you to the future of fence industry software!
