In September 2000, the software developer Guido Schnepp started his freelance career as a certified ISIS Papyrus Application Developer. Shortly after he published the indispensable software tool AFP-Lookup for a detailed analysis of common problems with AFPDS data streams. This laid the foundation for today’s CRE-DO consulting and software products for document automation, output management and document design. After tumultuous early years in offering consulting around printing services from generation to archiving in AFP format, todays emphasis lies on professional data stream analysis in considerably more formats such as AFP and PDF, both with specially developed software such as AFP-Lookup, but still also in the context of problem solving customer-specific problems by its own experienced team of consultants.
