Ghent, Belgium – June 18, 2019. iText Group NV, a globally recognized thought-leader and innovator in PDF libraries and solutions, today announced the launch of iText DITO, the newest addition to their award-winning software offerings.

iText DITO is a template engine built on iText’s proven technology: iText 7 Core and its add-ons pdfHTML and pdfCalligraph. It has been developed in order to reduce the time-consuming complexities that many developers face when creating and maintaining data-driven PDF templates.

Modifications can be made to templates, without changing a single line of code.

Our mission is to develop high-quality technology that enables our users - many of which are Fortune 500 companies - to address the fast-changing aspects of digital business.” said Tony Van den Zegel, General Manager at iText Software Belgium. “The release of iText DITO marks a milestone in the industry, as it represents the next generation of data-driven PDF solutions.”
