With 13 years of Special Education teaching experience, Gus Brecht understands the time, effort, and expertise required to write quality IEPs. In 1999, he began creating IEP software and has dedicated himself to bringing teachers easy-to-use software with top-notch customer support, with a goal of simplifying the complex IEP writing process.

By 2004, the internet and the ability to provide software as a service had improved to the point that Gus was ready to move to a 100% web-based solution. He partnered with Joe Koenig to create the first web-based version of PowerIEP.

Joe’s technology background includes programming, owning a custom web application development firm, and serving as the Chief Information Officer for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. With Joe and Gus collaborating on how to keep the user interface easy to navigate while continually improving the user experience, an easy-to-use and highly dependable web-based product was created.

Since 2004, the PowerSuite has grown to include PowerIEP, Power504, PowerDS (Fee-for-Service Medicaid Billing), and PowerRTI (Response to Intervention).
