„I help answer our clients’ support questions. When I’m not at work, my favorite thing to do is play with my daughter. She also has a lot of questions that need answering, too.”

Holger Matthes

Senior Consultant and trainer

„Whether it’s compiling modular technical documentation or building my own Lego creations, putting things together has always been a part of my life.”

Kirstin Luderer


„At DOCUFY, professional customer service and building bridges to potential new customers are at the top of my agenda. To relax, I like to bury myself in a good book. My garden is my favorite place to read.”

Holger Rath

Product Manager COSIMA

„Listening is my thing. Be it as product manager of COSIMA, so I can understand customer needs. Or as a skipper of a sailing yacht, so I can interpret wind and waves.”

Ingo Buchardt

Head of Sales

„Looking for the best solution with our customers is an incentive for me and I enjoy it. Just like kicking around a soccer ball, giving the badminton raquet a dash and diving into the sea.”

Dr. Eckhard Geulen

Managing Director

„I love the tension between fast food and haute cuisine, between high performance and relaxation, between seriousness and humour, between Beethoven and Toten Hosen, between poetry and technical documentation: everything in its own time.”


1998 – The world is ready for XML

Uwe Reißenweber founds DOCUFY. His goal? To be one of the first players to optimize writing processes using XML.

2000 – XML goes productive

The year is 2000. There are no efficient, high-power Component content management systems (CCMS) on the market. DOCUFY fills the gap by developing its own state-of-the-art, future-oriented XML systems that can even be customized to meet specific client needs.

2004 – COSIMA is born!

The company’s expertise leads to the development of a universal basic system. COSIMA efficiently incorporates in-demand core functionalities into writing processes and significantly reduces the amount of time and effort necessary for implementation.

2008 – Ready to use, ready to go

DOCUFY launches COSIMA go!, a CCMS that can be installed without a dedicated IT project. It proves to be an industry solution that is tailored to the needs of medium-sized businesses.

2011 – Everything from a single source

DOCUFY adds DOCUFY Machine Safety to its product portfolio as a complement to COSIMA, opening the doors to faster, more efficient technical writing. The software package simplifies the CE marking process and can be used as a structural foundation for creating technical documentation.

2015 – TopicPilot is ready for takeoff

DOCUFY prepares its customers for a paperless future with TopicPilot. The mobile publication platform makes it possible to publish a wide range of information and complex documents with a minimum of time and effort – in Web- and smartphone-ready formats, both online and offline.

2016 – Future-ready documentation

DOCUFY knows the added value of technical documentation and is making it possible to leverage its value throughout its clients’ companies, even in areas such as marketing and service. Thanks to its Multi-Level Documentation strategy, DOCUFY is the first in the industry to shape documentation and publication processes in such a way that every information unit makes an optimum contribution to a company’s success in every context!

2017 – A Heidelberg Group Company

On May 1, 2017, DOCUFY became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg). In Heidelberg, DOCUFY has a strong partner to support customers in coping with growing market requirements. Together, the two companies are digitizing the service for suppliers and operators of machines and systems, offering the best processes and tools on an open platform. This is what we call Service-as-a-Service.

2017 – DOCUFY Layouter

In October 2017, DOCUFY presents its latest product: DOCUFY Layouter. This is an easy-to-use cloud solution that allows editors to design their own output layouts. Once defined, layouts can be transferred to derived layouts via intelligent inheritance mechanisms. This not only ensures consistent, corporate design-compliant output layouts, but also saves time and annoying coordination rounds.

2018 - 20 years of DOCUFY

DOCUFY GmbH has been in existence for two decades now. Uwe Reißenweber founded the company in 1998 to revolutionize editorial processes based on XML. Today, the company is regarded as the industry leader among the manufacturers of professional software solutions for technical documentation and as a visionary in the digitization and modernization of information management.

2019 - New Managing Director

The new DOCUFY Managing Director, Dr. Eckhard Geulen, looks back on many years of experience in consulting and managing medium-sized companies as well as corporate divisions. He brings along both excellent knowledge of the information industry and hands-on experience of digital transformation. Together with about 120 employees in Bamberg, he will continue to ensure that DOCUFY GmbH and its customers are enabled to transform their companies into the digital context with future-proof software and innovative concepts.

2019 - DOCUFY CAx Quality Manager

The DOCUFY CAx Quality Manager (DQM) was developed by an has been in use at the DOCUFY corporate parent Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG since 2007. In December 2019, DOCUFY GmbH added the DQM to its product portofolio and has since then been responsible for its further development and support. The application supports NX users during the entire construction process to ensure compliance with CAD rules and guidelines.

Shaping Sustainability our way

DOCUFY is investing in the future – and not just by developing innovative products! We also sponsor the next generation of talent in all walks of life.

Taking action for the skilled workers of tomorrow
DOCUFY is proud to support the University of Bamberg’s IT day, the Bamberger Informatik Tag (BIT). BIT is a university project aimed at getting children who are still in school interested in information science at an early age. A full day of workshops, presentations, and one-on-one chats is a great opportunity to get to know the digital world! Through its commitment, DOCUFY hopes to encourage the next generation of computer specialists and present itself as an employer for tomorrow’s IT experts.


Team spirit, passion, and drive…
... are values that we can identify with. For centuries, fistball has been capturing the hearts and minds of the young and old alike, inspiring men and women, as well as spectators and players. We are proud to lend our support to this sport by sponsoring the TSV 1860 Staffelstein sports club’s men’s, women’s, and youth fistball teams.


Bamberg and basketball: a slam dunk
Basketball is as much a part of Bamberg as a cool beer and delicious Franconian-style pot roast. As a Bamberg-based company, we are proud of our home team, the Brose Baskets – and we are even more proud to sponsor the organization’s talent-development program.
