Gnostice creates elegantly designed PDF and Microsoft Office document-processing components for .NET. Gnostice component libraries enable .NET developers to easily add multi-format document creation, advanced PDF processing, document viewing, printing and conversion capabilities to their WinForms, ASP.NET, WPF and WinRT applications.

Gnostice is led by its founder and CEO Girish Patil. In 2003, Gnostice released eDocEngine VCL and PDFtoolkit VCL. eDocEngine is a one-stop solution for all electronic document-creation and report-exporting needs of Delphi/C++Builder developers. PDFtoolkit is a PDF editing/viewing/printing component suite. In 2004, Gnostice released ActiveX versions of eDocEngine and PDFtoolkit. In 2006, Gnostice released PDFOne .NET and PDFOne (for Java) in 2004. These component suites allowed .NET and Java developers to create, edit, enhance, view and print PDF documents. In 2009, Gnostice released a one-of-a-kind product - XtremePDFConverter VCL. This product intelligently converts PDF documents to free-flowing user-friendly Word RTF documents. XtremePDFConverter uses artificial intelligence techniques and input from the user code to accurately recognize and convert paragraphs, tables, bullets, numbered lists, newspaper columns, and other standard document formatting features. In 2011, Gnostice released XtremeFontEngine .NET and XtremeFontEngine (for Java). These font engines allow .NET/Java programmers to go beyond the font types supported by the .NET framework and JRE, all the while retaining the 100% .NET or 100% Java code tag. In November 2012, Gnostice introduced the next-generation multi-format document creation/processing suite XtremeDocumentStudio .NET. In October 2013, a Delphi/C++Builder version of the document-processing suite was released as XtremeDocumentStudio Delphi.
