2005

Development of BENS.
Barcode Engine Network Server
The PCL-compatible network device creates barcodes for several printers simultaneously, whereby printer-specific hardware solutions, such as SIMMs, DIMMs or flashcards can be replaced.

2006

BENS is rewarded with the „Innovation Price 2006“ of the Initiative Mittelstand (public initiative society for mid-sized businesses).
RBarc+2006 and RBarc/PDF417-2006 are issued. The new versions create barcodes as SAP Bitmaps. Thereby, they can be utilized independent from the printer. Even when faxed, mailed, archived or changed into the PDF format, they remain unchanged. That way, these add-ons have turned out to be a true runaway success.

A development-cooperation with PrintSoft is successfully established - a further huge outsourcing project!
Expansion of the development cooperation with Lexmark International.

Preis „Innovation Produkt Mittelstand 2008“

2010

BENS G3 with a mature, intelligent filter technology and many added server functions, such as, for example, an automatic reprint function, was introduced to the market with great success.

Cooperation contract with PrintSoft Australia, affiliated company of the Australian Post.

Cooperation contract with Konica Minolta, Japan.

2011

Further filters for BENS G3, such as for example Prescribe2PCL, CarbonCopy and MacroFilters are developed.

2012

BENS G3 is virtualized. The spool server system is further developed for the virtual environments VMWare, XEN and Microsoft HyperV. Initial deliveries of BENS G3 to Hong Kong and China follow.

The development of the MacroGenerator Enterprise is finalized. With this program, PCL5 and PCL6 can be generated from almost all existing templates.

Configurators for the Macro and CarbonCopy Filters are developed. The programs are designed to facilitate the user’s definition even of difficult and complex printing processes. The configurators possess a graphic interface automatically creating an XXL-configuration for the respective filters. Both configurators are free of charge.

2013

A reseller contract for the Asian Market is signed with Konica Minolta China.

The Airprint® Protocol and our own Follow-Me System are implemented on BENS G3.

The RBarc/QRCode is published and enhances the well-known RBarc Programs by a further popular 2D Barcode.

All programs of the RBarc-Series are receiving an update. From then on, apart from SAPscript® and Smartforms® also Interactive Forms® are supported.

RBarc/Datamatrix proves to be one of the very few products that can meet with the requirements of production and trade, especially with that of the automotive area. This position the program owes to the many years of experience in the field of barcode printing which we have carried through to the implementation of such and similar programs.

2014

BENS G4 is published with the OS4 as a follow-up of BENS G3. This new hardware is even more compact than its predecessors and commands a 30GB SSD memory. The new OS4 offers a modern, intuitive and still easier operable WEB-Interface. A new feature with OS4 is the entirely redesigned and high-performance spool system with its varied control and post-processing options for print jobs. Also new is the plug-in concept enabling fast functional enhancements without always having to modify the entire operating system. Together with the hardware variation, also the virtual variants for VMWare, XEN und Microsoft HyperV are introduced to the market.

Cooperation contract with Konica Minolta, Hong Kong.

2015

The company is converted into Suchy MIPS GmbH.

Moving into the new office in Munich, Prinzregentenstraße 128.
