American Cadastre, LLC (dba AMCAD®), based in Herndon, Virginia, is a leading enterprise software company that provides software solutions and services to the public sector including state, county and local governments. AMCAD automates the justice and records management ecosystem that includes courts, jails, prosecutors, probation, county clerks and recorders offices.  Public sector offices require comprehensive, integrated information management and AMCAD’s innovative suite of products and services including its integrated justice platform, a platform for government records and document management, and various data access technologies allow government offices to operate with enhanced efficiency and effectiveness.

AMCAD has provided software solutions and services to the public sector for over twenty five years, including solutions for state, county and local governments. Founded in 1986 as American Cadastre Corporation, AMCAD was primarily a consulting company working in the international government and land records market. AMCAD completed a constructive re-organization in 2001 through an asset purchase agreement which converted the company to an LLC, brought in private capital, new ownership and new management necessary to propel the company into the twenty first century.  In 2003, the company changed its focus to be software solutions and products driven; catering to the information technology needs of county, city and state government’s core business functions. In 2013, AMCAD became a portfolio company majority owned by Riverside Partners, a Boston-based firm.

Today the Company’s current offerings include its integrated justice platform, a platform for government records and managed services, and various data access technologies. AMCAD has established itself as a leading software provider through its innovative, high functionality offerings, and has a large and growing base of existing and signed government customers throughout the United States.  AMCAD boasts a national customer base with over 1,000 government agencies in over 38 states.
