Strong knowledge base

Today vjoon GmbH ranks among the most experienced developers of workflow solutions based on Adobe Creative Cloud and Unified Publishing Process. Our product, vjoon K4, is one of the most innovative crossmedia publishing platforms on the market. It was born of a fascination with Adobe software and the vision of connecting an efficient workflow system to these applications. vjoon has come a long way from its early days as a start-up that integrated publishing solutions and localized software. In recent years, the firm has grown to become one of the leading publishing system vendors with a global network that serves customers around the world.

Our great advantage is our long-standing and close alliance with Adobe. It enables us to integrate the latest innovations in Adobe products immediately into our solutions and focus our development efforts fully on meeting the needs of the market. Reputable customers around the world benefit from 500+ installations of this sophisticated solution in environments with 3 to 1,400 users.

Our partners implement vjoon K4 in America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa, and provide on-site support at publishing houses, editorial offices and corporate publisher's locations. Selected specifically for the respective markets, each partner in this global network brings to the table a deep understanding of the local situation and an excellent IT skill set.

German engineering

A steadily growing workforce of highly qualified employees develops our innovative software at our headquarters in the greater metropolitan region of Hamburg. This is the home base from which we coordinate our partner network.

Our Name

SoftCare turned into vjoon®

In 1999, we were among the first to recognize the huge potential of Adobe InDesign and InCopy and immediately began producing plug-ins, which made us pioneers in the development of workflow solutions with InDesign. The first magazine produced with InDesign worldwide also made use of vjoon K4® from the start.

However, the development of markets and business needs continues. Online services were added to print features, and today, everyone in the industry speaks about unified newsrooms, online first, user-generated content, integrated communication, and storytelling. We were among the first to offer a publishing system that was able to map print and online publications simultaneously. vjoon K4 has developed into a publishing platform that can control any number of output channels with flexible workflows. Thanks to our open, state-of-the-art interface standards, we can guarantee the quick integration of new technologies in the future.

vjoon stands for vision, value, and cooperation — a mission we have been following ever since our establishment. In 2008, we have reinterpreted this mission and given it a new name.
