About IDC

Interactive Design Consultants (IDC) was formed in 1986 to advance the use of personal computer (PC) CAD/CAM systems. The key personnel of IDC, Tom Zwica, Tom Hicks, Becky Catlett, and Ron Hartman, have over 100 years of experience in computer science covering a broad range of operating systems, programming languages and hardware systems.

The roots of IDC are primarily in the design and development of Computer Aided Design/Drafting (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) segment of engineering computer software. IDC is the worldwide developer and distributor of the ANVIL-1000MD® CAD software system which runs on a wide variety of computer platforms. In addition to the ANVIL-1000MD® CAD system, IDC provides custom software systems to many prominent corporations such as John Deere, Caterpillar, Boeing/McDonnell Douglas and others. The development of these Systems involved extensive network and corporate system consideration in both the design and implementation.

The wide distribution and application of IDC’s products and services has necessitated that the company acquire a high level of expertise in network and communication systems, both from a hardware and software standpoint. Most commonly used software and hardware systems are available to us “in house” for the purpose of continued development and maintenance.

IDC supports all of it’s customers and products with “hot line” technical assistance. Our philosophy is to not only provide our customer base with quality products, but quality technical support as well. This philosophy has allowed us to enjoy an outstanding record of repeat sales generated primarily by word-of-mouth advertising.

2001 brought about the acquisition of IDC by TriCom L.L.C. This merger of two technical companies allows us the ability to provide an extensive range of services both for corporate and home users. It also brought about a change in our name. We are now known as “IDC Digital Solutions”.

In June of 2007 we opened our brand new store at 100 East Exchange Street. At that time we underwent another name change to IDC Technology Solutions. We were awarded the Geneseo Chamber of Commerce Beautification award in that same year. It was about this same time that one of the original founder’s of IDC, Tom Zwica, retired to spend more time with his grandchildren, and pursue life long hobbies such as photography and flying.

While our name has changed a few times, and some of our personnel have moved on we still enjoy what we do and look forward to serving your CAD/CAM needs.

Sadly, in February of 2014 the founder of IDC, Tom Zwica, passed away after a heroic fight with brain cancer. He will be deeply missed.
