Datalogics Inc is a notable computer software company, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. Established in 1967, Datalogics initially emerged as a general programming consulting company, playing a pioneering role in the development of computerized typesetting systems. This early venture into the world of typesetting marked the company as one of the forerunners in the then-nascent field of document technology.

The company’s historical significance is further underscored by its status as one of the first firms to delve into the realm of PDF technology. Datalogics’ inception predates the creation of PDFs, positioning it as an important player in the evolution of PDF software. Their first product, DL Pager, was concentrated on typesetting, a precursor to modern graphic design systems, highlighting their innovative approach to software development.

Beyond its own software development, since 1996, the company has also been instrumental as a channel for several SDKs from Adobe Systems, including the Adobe PDF Library.

Datalogics is distinguished not only by its technological contributions but also by its enduring presence in the software industry, the company has maintained its active status, continually evolving and adapting to the changing landscape of software and PDF technologies.
