Yesterday in an exclusive interview, WorldCAD Access spoke with CADopia CEO Surya Sarda to hear the other story. Most of his startling story was, however, on background and so cannot be revealed here. Here's what I can make public:
Mr Sarda tells me that he disputes the amount owed, especially in light of receiving "not a penny" compensation for the three years he was ITC president and two years as ITC's development manager. In addition, he was never refunded the loan he made to the organization in its early days.
CADopia sales faltered after the ITC prevented him from accessing recent updates to IntelliCAD. He hopes instead to work towards a resolution through the arbitration clause of the ITC membership agreement.
Both sides owe each other, he reckons, and so "a mutually beneficial solution can be found," he affirms.
"I have invested ten years of my life in IntelliCAD, and I do not want to walk away from it now."
