Who we are, and what we do

RA – DFP is developed by a team of consultants working in close collaboration with users running the system in high volume / high quality production. By reacting to user feedback, and having several years of continuous production since the first release in 2010, we are proud to present a real workhorse, with a proven track record.

Using the built in features of XML import in InDesign, combined with a very intuitive and flexible way to control the look of your document, all in InDesign, RA – DFP provides you the ability to automate the production of catalogs, year books, time tables, flyers, well actually there is not much of a limit to what you can produce. Let us know what your needs are, and we will be happy to guide you in finding the best solution.

RA – DFP is but one of our products, and probably the easiest one to showcase. Under the name RA, two consultants are hiding, Richard Rönnbäck, and Adim Lundin, both having a long background in teaching, programming, quality control, color management, and automating workflows in the graphic industry. Believe it or not, we have been doing this since 1987! Time flies...

Privileged to be trusted by clients such as IKEA, H&M, SKF, TetraPak, and Bonnier, we are equally happy to help our smaller clients, whose needs may be on a lesser scale, but are just as important. Many clients ask us to help them automate their document production, be it product catalogs, daily financial data, or other types of data, with a product like RA – DFP, or by customized solutions. However, we are just as busy working with our clients on other areas, such as basic workflow issues like file handling, or scripting Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator.
