Software development experts since 1969

Proudly Employee Owned

Workpro case management system is developed by CAS Ltd - an employee-owned technology company.

We are a friendly, professional and highly skilled team based on a beautiful campus on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The company has been developing software since 1969 - the first software company in Scotland we believe! We moved to employee ownership in January 2014, which coincided with significant investment in our products and processes. A growing company, we are proud of our heritage while looking forward to the future.

Our Approach
As a smaller company we can give our clients individual attention. We get to know your business and you get to know us. This helps us understand what you are trying to achieve, and ensures we can be proactive in offering advice.

We have always been keen on building long term relationships with our clients. The RAF for example have been a client for over 30 years.

It is most refreshing to work with a company that works within the spirit of a contract and not to the letter.  Their innovative and professional attitude to the Service’s requests have always resulted in robust, flexible and cost-effective solutions.

RAF Spadeadam

Workpro was selected following an open, competitive bidding process. In addition to meeting our technical requirements, we were impressed by the user feedback provided by current clients of CAS. Workpro emerged as the solution that we believe will best serve our needs. We have enjoyed a great working relationship with CAS and very much appreciate the support and expertise of the CAS team.
