The DETEC company, founded in 1986 in Germany, specializes in solutions for document-based corporate communications. The major products in the core output management business field are the widely used LibertySoft system (also known as LaserSoft in German-speaking territories and named hereafter LibertySoft) and its successor DoXite. They can automatically turn raw source data from diverse applications into professionally formatted, well-structured documents in any layout the customer requires. The generated documents can then be distributed to recipients within or outside the company in paper-based or electronic format via printer, fax, e-mail, as a digital archive copy, or on the Web/intranet.
To date, more than 400 companies in the DACH region alone have integrated our solutions for automated document production and distribution into their digital workflows. More than 200 customers from various industries use LaserSoft in combination with SAP® R/3® or mySAP.com® for the production of customer-specific documents. The current customers include companies active in the automotive and supplier industry, in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and IT industries, telecommunications companies, utility providers, banks, as well as private, communal and public IT service providers. Owing to this breadth, we are one of the most experienced document composition and output channeling specialists on the market.
DoXite® and LaserSoft® automatically transform data from diverse source applications into formatted, well-structured documents with a customizable layout to match the corporate design. Users can flexibly choose the data format, such as PDF, XML or PCL/XL, depending on the specific business communication in question.
DoXite, the latest generation of the successful LaserSoft system for Windows, Linux and Unix, is based on an object-oriented design and processes Unicode, which means it can be employed anywhere in the world. DoXite accepts input data from a broad range of applications – including ERP programs like SAP® – and dynamically produces formatted documents. It also offers various output drivers and interfaces for printers and electronic media. The modular DoXite has already been certified for all SAP output data formats and is easily integrated into spooling or output management systems and linked with processes of other components. The Integrated Configuration Environment, a graphical user interface, is the central tool for configuring and administrating the entire system. The Data Styler supports many different source data formats and turns them into XML; then, the Document Styler determines the document layout and places the variable XML data at the correct locations. The DoXite Server integrated via an API processes variable data and makes documents available in different formats such as PDF, regardless of the output management system used.
Reliable software products, an expert staff, fast support and individual service are the pillars of DETEC’s success in the corporate communications arena. At present, more than 400 companies in the DACH region alone rely on LaserSoft for processing their output and producing documents. And an increasing number of customers have introduced DoXite and operate it together with LaserSoft. This includes companies active in the automotive and supplier industry, in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and IT industries, telecommunications companies, utility providers, banks, as well as private, communal and public IT service providers. Owing to this breadth, DETEC is one of the most experienced and successful document composition and output channeling specialists on the market.
