If the small problem from Monday suddenly turned into a big problem by Friday.

And others consider a solution impossible.

We help you. Guaranteed. At the highest level.

Learn how it all began

We matured with our product and with you, because you as our user were and are at the same time an advisor for what we improved and what we can do even better.

Year 2002
It all started as an idea out of necessity.

We, the former Schönland X-Media media agency, need a DMS and the few solutions on the market are too expensive, simply poor in terms of usability, and not suitable for us as a startup.

PaperOffice 1.0 as freeware

Based on Visual Basic 6 and a Microsoft Access database, the very first PaperOffice is being created and released to our customers as free freeware.

Year 2007

Year 2007

PaperOffice 2.0 for 9.99 euros.

And the users love PaperOffice:

It combines all necessary functions at an unprecedented price.

More and more working hours are now being devoted exclusively to PaperOffice, which was originally developed as a self-solution.

PaperOffice Version 2 will be the first commercial version and now claims a full-time job.

Year 2009
Only PaperOffice from now on

Our business founder Daniel Schönland is putting all his eggs in one basket: What started as a hobby is now becoming the core business.

The regional advertising and web agency "Schönland X-Media", which is still based in Harsewinkel, is transforming into a software manufacturer.

With 4 employees and a puppy, Schönland X-Media becomes Realify Systems limited.

PaperOffice 2009

PaperOffice is now available with MySQL databases, becomes revision-proof, receives numerous new functions, and has a completely redesigned and adapted design based on Microsoft Office 2007.

The first international sale is made and PaperOffice gets its first English-language interface.

Computerbild magazine CD

PaperOffice owes its success to Computerbild and their outstanding work.

Computerbild believes in PaperOffice and for the first time includes "PaperOffice CBE" on the magazine CD.

Together with an excellent workshop, readers get to know PaperOffice and are excited.

PaperOffice 2012 launch together with Computerbild

Due to the previous enormous success, PaperOffice 2012 will immediately be launched exclusively in cooperation with the German, Polish and Russian Computerbild.

PaperOffice is being attacked.

PaperOffice is the target of all providers who proudly represent the German IT document mafia and are forced to comply with the agreed pricing policy or "close down".

Especially DMS providers with less than 4 letters in the product name do not find the idea of the highly professional DMS system PaperOffice at an affordable price funny at all and see their multimillion-dollar maintenance contracts crumbling.

The small, now 12-person PaperOffice team is bombarded almost daily with lawyer's letters, cease and desist orders, and negative online propaganda for fictional reasons.

David vs Goliath. But we have a mission and we continue.

PaperOffice reaches 150,000 licenses.

PaperOffice owes its success once again to Computerbild, this time also in Eastern Europe through its appearance in Computerbild Poland and Russia. There is a new PaperOffice CBE version and an extensive 6-page workshop.

PaperOffice is now established among readers, reaching unprecedented user numbers.

Over 150,000 delivered PaperOffice "Computerbild-Edition" licenses break all records.

PaperOffice Stealth is coming.

Radically new architecture

What Apple can do, we can do too. And just as Apple needed Steve Jobs, PaperOffice needed its own "Steve Jobs" back:

Our founder Daniel Schönland. And the instruction that came was radical:

Everything new. Everything better. Everything as it used to be.

VB6 is being phased out.

In just one day, it was decided that the current PaperOffice version 2015 will be the last of its kind (and with the unchanged VB6 core from 2002).

At the same time, the PaperOffice team was working on plans for a brand new PaperOffice, which should be based on the experiences of PaperOffice Stealth and the collective knowledge gained from 13 years of in-house and field work.

The new PaperOffice appears for the first time on the drawing board.

Year 2018

PaperOffice 2018

The completely newly developed PaperOffice is finished and, for the first time in 16 years, combines ALL available technologies in just one PaperOffice software.

High-tech technologies such as Node.js and the V8 engine bring high-tech to everyone. Gone are the days when high-performance SQL databases had to be painstakingly installed and set up. The new PaperOffice is the first version that is fully operational "out-of-the-box" without any cumbersome administration.

The new PaperOffice raises the bar to an unprecedented level and guarantees absolute future security.

Digital change in product development - successful document management

“In industry, the topic of digitization is becoming more and more noticeable. This applies, for example, to our technical data sheets, customer data, calculations or our plans, drawings and configurations. After the introduction of PaperOffice DMS, the manual effort could be reduced. We are now pioneers in digitization in production companies, Industry 4.0.”
