Year 2002
It all started as an idea out of necessity

We, the former Schönland X-Media media agency, needed a DMS and the few solutions on the market were far too expensive, simply bad to use 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 created and released as freeware to our customers.

PaperOffice is under attack

PaperOffice becomes the target of all vendors who proudly represent the German IT document mafia and are forced to adhere to the agreed pricing policy or "shut down".

Especially DMS vendors 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 for everyone at all funny and see their million dollar maintenance contracts crumbling.

The small PaperOffice team, which now consists of 12 people, is bombarded almost daily with letters from lawyers, warnings and negative Internet sentiment for fictitious reasons.

David against Goliath. But we have a mission and we keep going.

PaperOffice reaches 150,000 licenses

PaperOffice owes its success once again to Computerbild and this time also in Eastern Europe by appearing 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 PaperOffice "Computerbild-Edition" licenses shipped, breaking all records.

Radically new architecture

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

Our founder Daniel Schoenland.And the directive that came next was radical:

Everything new. Everything better. Everything as it was before.

VB6 is discarded

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, based on the experience of PaperOffice Stealth and the accumulated knowledge of 13 years of office and field work.

The new PaperOffice goes to the drawing board for the first time.

The new PaperOffice is the first version that is completely ready to use out-of-the-box, without the hassle of administration.

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