An enterprise's success is to a great extent determined by its corporate culture, which is a factor that comes into play at ELO in a number of different ways. We regard both our customers and business associates as partners that form part of the ELO "community" whose mission is to provide products and document services, and act in ways, that are first and foremost beneficial for our customers.

The overarching purpose in this regard is to provide you with products document services and solutions that optimise the efficiency of your business processes so that you can improve your productivity and reduce your costs. We have found that these goals are most successfully met if we pick and choose the technological developments that we feel are worth pursuing, which means focusing on feasible solutions that will provide you with the products and document services you genuinely need.

At ELO, all software is developed by our entire team, i.e. all staff contribute to the development process. This in turn means that all of our products are the fruit of extensive discussion and analysis, which ultimately results in the design and realisation of a product that has benefited from input contributed by all concerned.

Our partners and customers receive an equal level of attention and dedication irrespective of their company's size. We will be open and honest with all our customers, partners, suppliers and staff and will advise of imbalance before problems hinder a profitable outcome of ELO's document services and solutions.

Company history

Meeting customer needs and developing and delivering top quality and extremely reliable document management software solutions for our customers has always been the mainspring of all of our activities, which are based on our company philosophy. ELO Digital Office had its origins in a respected German company known as Louis Leitz Group of Companies, which is renowned for its outstanding office supply solutions. Virtually everyone who has ever set foot in an office has held a Leitz folder in his or her hand. Already in the mid 1990s, Leitz realized that the growing importance of information technology would soon revolutionize document management processes, and that electronic media would be the main driver of this revolution.

And so in 1996, Leitz created a new division and developed a product that met the needs of this growing market: Electronic Leitz Organiser, for which the initials in German are ELO (Elektronischer Leitz Ordner). ELO focused on the electronic archiving of documents in a fashion that was equivalent to classic office filing methods. ELO's initial customers were small businesses. The market response to ELO products and document services was so positive that in 1998 the Louis Leitz Group founded a subsidiary known as Louis Leitz Digital Office GmbH. ELO was formally established as an independent business unit in August 1998, when Louis Leitz was acquired by the Swedish giant Esselte AB.
ELO's products and document services have continued to be highly successful, which has resulted in continuous growth of the unit.

ELO's first product, ELOoffice was optimized on an ongoing basis by incrementally incorporating into the products solutions that met specific customer requirements. High demand for ELOoffice, combined with customers' growing needs for efficient solutions, led to the development of a companion product to the entry level version that is specifically for large customers and more elaborate requirements. This product, known asELOprofessional, was the first of its kind to integrate an SQL database and client server architecture. Although it was clear to ELO management from the start that ELOprofessional would be used in a Windows environment, customers increasingly expected ELO products to be compatible with a heterogeneous environment as well. This led to the idea of developing a platform independent and client enabled version, and ELOenterprise was born. The product was launched in 2004.

The ELO product portfolio now services three entire market segments: small businesses (ELOoffice - currently not available in Australia), medium sized businesses (ELOprofessional) and large companies (ELOenterprise).

We are proud to count among our customers industry leaders such as Taronga Zoo, TSCO, Kyocera Mita, Lufthansa, MAN, Debitel, BMW, EADS, Daimler, Zott, and Südzucker, which collectively operate 450,000 ELO workstations. Together with our more than 400 professional ELO partners and our highly motivated team of 280 ELO employees, we look forward to continuing to meet the challenge of developing products, document services  and solutions that expedite and streamline our customers' business processes.

The ELO Mission

"He who believes he is something has ceased to become anything." (Socrates).

We know that success means progress and that development is synonym to motion. At ELO, we feel that we have already accomplished a great deal. We're proud of our track record, but we have no intention of resting on our laurels. We want to help our customersto move forward, and toward this end set everything in motion. We focus on the essential, namely the development of solutions for our customers, for they are the real reason for everything we do. Our will to succeed is fuelled by the desire to provide our customers with results they can count on to bring them success in all of their endeavours. At ELO, we work behind the scenes so that our customers can excel at centre stage. We develop solutions that provide profitable benefits to the customers, partners and ELO itself.


In our own small way, we are masters of eloquence. As the poet is to the language, so is the ELO developer to the programming. To speak articulately, you need to come to the point so that you can interact meaningfully with your audience, but also and above all so that you can articulate the content clearly and simply. This is what ELO developers strive to do. We want our customers to be able to use and understand ELO solutions easily. We devote our hearts and minds to this task, for coherent programming must be as adaptable and versatile as life itself. Language changes constantly, and in this spirit we develop solutions with and for people. To this we are unwaveringly committed.

The ELO "nest"

ELO now and forever. We are as committed to the well being and success of our personnel as we are to that of our customers, for the success of our personnel and customers is the key to our own success. ELO's corporate culture is marked by mutual trust and respect. This is borne out by the very real fact, of which we are justifiably proud. One of our top priorities is promoting and actively supporting the personal and professional development of each and every one of our staff members. This can even mean, in certain cases, that a staff member may go to work for a business partner for a period, but ultimately such individuals always return to the ELO "nest." For us, it goes without saying that the professional development of our team members must be harmonized with their family lives and career goals. We are always looking for new blood. For we feel - and long experience has shown - that a strong and motivated team will produce robust and exciting solutions.

ELO unbound

The broader the horizon, the more farsighted your solutions can be. Our solutions are developed with the needs of tomorrow fully in mind. A future oriented technology that supports scalable architecture is the cornerstone of our farsighted approach to development. The robustness of our software architecture is versatile and thus is compatible with all business processes and can be adapted to all customer structures. The robustness is a constant, but the multiplicity of patterns and functions is limitless.

Versatility also means making it easy for our customers to optimize their ELO solutions during the post-implementation phase, without any outside assistance. This in turn marries business processes to the solution in a manner that creates a robust and readily customizable architecture. In the final analysis, the solution must help the enterprise to grow and optimize its processes and products.
