About Y Soft

The Y Soft Difference

Innovation Growth Engine

Innovation Growth Engine

Organizations need to depend on a solutions provider who is committed to bringing new innovations to market. This often goes beyond the traditional R&D teams. Y Soft recognized this early on and created YSoft Labs, an internal innovation center and Y Soft Ventures, a venture arm that invests in promising technology from young-start ups.

Y Soft is also very active in academia with many YSofters speaking at university lectures. We also have an ongoing Applied Research & University Relations program which brings in new ideas from students during their theses preparation and are often subsequently hired.
Customer First Approach

Customer First Approach

Anyone can say the customer always come first but at Y Soft, we measure how we perform in this area. Are we meeting SLA compliance, receiving excellent reviews after each support interaction, providing customized service and are customers renewing (yes!)?  These are a few of the ways we measure our Customer First goals.
 
GOE framework

YSoft Global Operational Excellence (GOE) Framework™

While most companies are quick to make a sale, Y Soft is invested in your continued success. When you do business with Y Soft, you work with certified project managers and partners to understand your critical success factors. We design and deploy a solution that helps you meet your ROI goals throughout the life of the project. And we don’t walk away after deployment. We offer continuous monitoring and system health checks to make sure your print and workflow infrastructure is performing as expected and preempting issues from becoming problems at your site.
Local sales, service and support

Local sales, service and support

Y Soft has offices in 16 countries around the world -- staff who can help you in your time zone and in your language. Additionally our user software is localized in over 35 native languages.
Manufacturing Capabilities

Manufacturing Capabilities

While YSafeQ is a software solution, many customers require optional hardware components such as card readers and external terminals. While competitors require customers to source these components from other suppliers, Y Soft designs, tests and manufacturers them. This assures customers the entire solution works well together and eliminates separate support and invoicing headaches.

2017
A new R&D center in Ostrava, Czech Republic, was established in June and Y Soft China Ltd., a new subsidiary, opened in August in the Shanghai District Technology Development Center to support growth in China, the world’s second largest market.

In Brno, Czech Republic, Y Soft’s manufacturing, logistics and shipping staff moved their operations out of headquarter offices into a nearby, larger area in November. The new facility allows for larger volume capacity in manufacturing YSoft SafeQ hardware in addition to prototyping and testing new designs for our R&D teams as they work on new innovations in YSoft Lab projects.
2016
With the introduction of YSoft SafeQ 6, our flagship enterprise print management solution becomes a platform. As a platform, it now includes document capture and 3D print management in addition to print management. YSoft SafeQ is also integrated into YSoft be3D eDee, the first 3D solution that combines a 3D printer with a print management, workflow and an accounting system.
2015
Y Soft becomes the first company to offer print management as a subscription service for all major multifunction devices. YSoft SafeQ is expanded to support mobile devices such as Mac laptops and smartphones and tablets on the iOS and Android platforms. Y Soft also introduced SaaS pricing for its software and support services enabling use of YSoft SafeQ on a pay as you go model.
2014
A new version of YSoft SafeQ 5 was released, complete with a range of new features and enhancements. We bought a majority stake in be3D, a company that develops and manufactures 3D printers, thereby expanding our portfolio to include 3D printing. We set up Y Soft Ventures, a venture capital fund designed to support innovative projects. Y Soft won the CzechInvest "Investor of the Year" award in the IT and Shared Services category for 2013.
2013
We acquired Equitrac Systems of Australia and established an office in Dubai. We became the first company providing print management solutions with offices around the world and customer service in all time zones.
2012
The updated YSoft SafeQ 4 included a range of revolutionary features such as Print Roaming, Private Cloud and Mobile Printing. The Brno headquarters relocated to a new building with a stylish work environment fostering employee satisfaction and creativity.
2011
We established an office in Miami, Florida to support the customers and partners in Central and South America. Y Soft invested significantly in the expansion of a quality assurance (QA) department for testing purposes.
2010

We launched the remote server (RS), a predecessor of the offline remote spooler (ORS), in order to provide large corporations and institutions with offices around the world an efficient system for the transmission of print tasks and centralized print management and reporting services.
2006
Thanks to the enormous success of the YSoft SafeQ Terminal Professional, we were able to buy a production line. In addition, to further improve our terminal hardware, we developed the first integrated terminal for multifunction printers.

2004-5
SmartQ was renamed YSoft SafeQ. We introduced a revolutionary hardware terminal, the YSoft SafeQ Terminal Professional, with a large touch screen and integrated proximity card reader.
2003
We introduced SmartQ, software designed to control the printing and copying process and also the predecessor of YSoft SafeQ. SmartQ enabled secure printing through a server, copying based on SNMP communication with the printer, blocking printing functions and charging for printing services. Y Soft was the first company in the world to introduce this precise charging system.
2000-2
Y Soft was founded in 2000 as part of a student project at Masaryk University in Brno. After several failed projects, the new company managed to secure a key order. We developed the first application enabling the authentication of printer users using a card reader – the predecessor of the current Print Roaming module. We found our market niche, thereby focusing our entire development process on the control of access to printed documents using identification cards and readers.
