DATECS Ltd., was founded in 1990 by a group of research fellows from the Institute of Applied Cybernetics at the Bulgarian Academy of Science.
The start was given in 1990 with the first Cyrillic fonts in the Post Script format, the first Laser printer with in - built Cyrillic fonts in 1991 and the first professional program for complete Cyrillic support under MS Windows - the Flex Type - in 1992. During 1996, this product was accepted as the standard for the communication software products, employed to serve the Council for European Security and Cooperation. In 1997, Microsoft purchased a Datecs license for the distribution of the spelling and hyphenation product - Flex Word.

The wide - scale, national land - division program of 1993 initiated Datecs to establish a Geographic Information Systems department. After developing an effective and highly accurate technology for the digitalization of scanned map images, the department was able to complete several big home projects in a short period of time and in cooperation with leading firms from the same branch in Germany and France went on to execute projects abroad. Digital maps of some of the biggest cities in Bulgaria and Germany were made between 1993 - 98, as well as maps of some provinces in France, of the territories along the river Nile and the whole territory of Thailand. Datecs programming teams supported the realization of several complex projects for the needs of major state institutions in Bulgaria, for Coca - Cola of Greece, Amoco - USA, the Association of the Commercial Banks of Berlin etc.

In cooperation with Samsung, Datecs embarked on developing retail systems in 1994. Two, Samsung based, electronic cash registers were reconstructed in order to expand their functions and adapt them for networking. The company produced its first electronic cash register - the Datecs MP500 - in 1996, followed by the model with the thermal printer, the MP500T, a year later. In only a few years - and 100 000 devices sold in 11 countries around the World - Datecs became the best known brand of electronic cash registers with fiscal memory in Central and Eastern Europe. The novel concept of employing the PC as a server in a network of electronic cash registers, was supported by the appearance of adequate software products. These products permitted the building of complex networks of PC and cash registers at incomparably lower relative prices for supermarkets, hotels and restaurants. During the next several years, the range of company products has expanded with electronic scales, working in conjunction with a cash register and label printer; POLE display, fiscal, "kitchen", label and ESC / POS printers; a portable cash register and an item server, plus a number of new program products.
