Real friends are always there when you need them. When you call them first, if it really burns. They also help with difficult problems with help and advice. Real friends always act in the interests of all concerned and may sometimes be selfless. Real friends are best everywhere – of course at work. Our software and you could become real friends!


Düsseldorf-based CRE-DO GmbH sees itself as a small but fine software and consulting company with a focus on output management, high volume printing and AFPDS. In addition to excellent technical expertise and a deep understanding of the problems of our customers, we attach particular importance to prompt and personal support as well as to the wishes and ideas of our users oriented further development of our software portfolio.

In September 2000, the software developer Guido Schnepp started his freelance work as a Papyrus Consultant as a certified ISIS Papyrus Application Developer. Shortly thereafter, he published the indispensable software tool AFP Lookup for the detailed problem analysis of AFPDS data streams. This laid the foundation for today’s CRE-DO consulting and software offering around document automation, output management and document design.
