History of StratusVue

In 2001, founder John Goecke was a Vice President at FXWB Reprographics in Vernon Hills, IL, which offers printing, scanning, and copying services for large format documents (such as construction drawings). John and his partners realized that there was an increasing need for technology that could manage an electronic planroom in addition to the traditional printed form.  In order to be part of this industry transformation, they began to develop a software that could manage digital construction documents. That software product would eventually become the same PlansandSpecs that resides in the StratusVue portfolio today.

With significant input from customers, PlansandSpecs was enhanced and refined to meet the needs of the commercial construction environment. Realizing that software was going to be driving the future of the construction documents industry–rather than printing–in 2007, John took the software product independent, and PlansandSpecs became its own company.  For the next several years, the company grew, and the product continued to become more robust.

After several years of solid performance, in 2011, John felt the urge to accelerate growth and recruited Stan Pepper to be the company’s CEO. Under Stan and John’s joint leadership, PlansandSpecs increased its sales, improved operations, and heightened its company profile.  When the innovative BIMfx solution was developed in 2012-13, it became clear that the company had grown into something more than the original PlansandSpecs. In July 2013, CRO Matt Schaefer guided a rebranding campaign and relaunched the company as StratusVue.
