Flexi 22 offers new and improved features to enhance sign and print production for users.

SA International (SAi), a leading provider of software solutions for professional signmaking, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM machining industries, is demonstrating the latest developments to its Flexi signmaking software, the only all-in-one design, print and cut software for sign and print providers, at its stand (A1-A11) at Fespa, 23-26 May, at Messe Munich.

SAi heads to Fespa as it celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Cloud solutions that continue to facilitate communication, support, file transfer, updates, storage and innovation for its customers.

Production powerhouse that drives profits for customers

Flexi 22 has an enhanced, user-friendly interface with the SAi Connect dashboard for monitoring production data, licenses, subscriptions, and downloading updates. Efficiency, ease of use, and the ability to modify jobs directly within Flexi Production Manager streamline the workflow, delivering time and cost savings. Repeat jobs are easily accessible with original settings for faster, easier and more profitable reprints.

This powerful software for sign and display producers incorporates SAi’s established, sign-specific design tools, RIP software and print-and-cut software for vinyl cutting.

Flexi 22 also has tools for special applications including Direct-to-Film and Direct-to-Garment design and production, giving the software exceptional versatility. These features can help signmakers expand into new markets and offer additional services to their existing customers.

Flexi 22 is available as subscription software, making payment easy and assuring signmakers that they are always using the latest version. In addition, users are able to select features for special projects and unlock them on a short-term basis. Costs can be controlled and even applied to specific jobs.

Ten years in the Cloud – One billion jobs stored

A lot has happened in 10 years, and the use of the Cloud for storage, software delivery, file sharing, support and training has continued to expand and now is accepted as standard practice.

SAi’s pioneering software subscription program and development of SAi Cloud used this technology to make software more affordable and flexible. No longer do customers have to buy and install expensive collections of CDs, pay large amounts for new versions, or buy unnecessary bundles of features they do not need. Instead, subscription customers benefit from continuous product improvements and automatic updates without incurring upgrade costs.

Today, nearly 25,000 SAi customers have active subscription licenses and are using SAi Cloud to store one billion jobs. The ability to receive regular, automatic updates and unlock special applications on a short-term basis has made SAi’s Cloud offerings the gold standard for its customers.

SAi’s new Adendo training program and the Flexi User Community are also enabled by Cloud technologies and bring benefits to thousands of users by providing expert training and the sharing of best practice.

“Flexi 22 is hitting the sweet-spot for signmakers,” says Sarit Tichon, Senior VP, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, SAi. “Its long history of reliability and innovation have made it the leading software for the industry. Having one billion jobs stored in our tenth year of SAi Cloud services is a major landmark and clearly illustrates both Flexi’s evolution and SAi’s commitment to our customers and the industry.

“SAi is a long-standing FESPA exhibitor and we now enjoy an established suite of products that, for many customers, serves as the beating pulse of their signmaking operations. To that end, for FESPA visitors looking to boost productivity and enhance efficiencies within their signmaking workflow, a visit to SAi’s booth will be well worth their time,” Sarit Tichon concludes.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
