Company also celebrates 25th anniversary of its market-leading Flexi signmaking solution. SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the professional signmaking, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, is enjoying a double-milestone as it heads to FESPA 2017.
The company is celebrating the achievement that a staggering 80 million-plus jobs were produced last year using its software portfolio, while also marking the 25th anniversary of its industry-leading, Flexi signmaking solution.
The 80 million-plus jobs comprise those undertaken on large format printers and cutters, driven by Flexi signmaking software and EnRoute CAD/CAM software, respectively.
“Such a staggering number of global jobs in just 12 months is an extraordinary accomplishment for our company and underscores the long-held popularity and continued confidence within the marketplace of our feature-rich software stable,” says Mark Blundell, CEO, SAi.
“We also issued over 41,000 software licences last year, of which around half were RIP software licences, so we head to FESPA proud of the role that we are playing in the industry and the difference we are making to our customers’ businesses,” he adds.
At-show promotions and on-stand presentations
As part of its showcase at FESPA, SAi will offer existing and new customers a special at-show promotion of a 30-day free trial of its industry-renowned Flexi design, print and cut software.
FESPA will also provide the opportunity to hear about how SAi’s advanced software portfolio delivers efficiency-enhancing tools to signmakers, wide-format printers and CAD/CAM users via live on-stand workflow demonstrations (Hall B7, Stand A59). This includes tutorials of the company’s recently launched performance-improving mobile app, MyFlexi. The free app offers print shop employees and Flexi-users time-saving tools including the ability to quote jobs on-the-go in a matter of second using FlexiQuote. Quotes created remotely instantly appear in Flexi to ensure capacity management smooth workflow and greater productivity.
25 years of continued innovation
During its quarter of a century, Flexi has enjoyed progressive growth and is today established as the software of choice for signmakers and wide-format print businesses around the world. As the industry-standard for sign-specific design tools, RIP and print, print-and-cut and direct vinyl cutting, SAi Flexi is found in over 75% of wide-format printers.
The success of Flexi saw the launch of the company become the first and only wide-format RIP software provider software boasting not one, but two companion mobile apps. Working in conjunction with SAi Flexi version 11 and 12, the apps are designed to provide business owners and print shop employees respectively with production-enhancing tools to streamline throughput and reduce production time – from set-up to completion. This is particularly useful to remotely access valuable production information while on the road or away from the office.
