Our History

Lytrod Software, Inc. was established in 1985. Since then, Lytrod has had over 5,000 product installations and over 2,000 customer sites worldwide. It has been honored with the award Xerox Partner of the Year for 4 years and has had a 20+ year Xerox Partner development of Xerox Variable Print Technologies.

Lytrod Software created their Designer Suite as design tools supporting the Xerox VI Suite so that anyone could develop sophisticated variable applications.  Proform and DeskTop Designer software allow users to create seamless variable print and variable PDF workflows from the same data source.  Lytrod Software’s support of the Xerox FreeFlow VI DDC model allows easy 1:1 print marketing campaigns eliminating complex and expensive graphic arts workflows – – freeing your staff to get to the work of printing, not prepress.

Recently, Lytrod Software has released a new product that is a standalone variable document design tool and composition engine, called VisionDP. This product has extensive business form drawing capabilities, you can use any imagery/design with no plug-ins required and hundreds of variable design features.  VisionDP gives you the liberty to create optimized PDF in record time, without the need for a third party composition engine.  Lytrod Software also created an addition to the VisionDP product line, VisionDP Automate, which automates the production and distribution of variable PDFs.  VisionDP Automate provides for “lights out” operation, with its data hot folder support, Job-Queue manager, booklet imposition, internal email client, versioning, and other automation abilities.
