SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the professional signmaking, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, will use SGIA Expo 2013 (23 – 25 October, Orlando, FL) to demonstrate its latest offerings for increasing business and productivity of sign and print providers.
Via specialized focus and training areas at SAi’s booth (2854), as well as an educational presentation, SGIA visitors will have the opportunity for an up-close look at the feature-rich attributes of the company’s products designed to improve processes from design to production.
Foremost among the software solutions on display will be SAi Flexi™ which delivers a wealth of industry-specific design tools, easy-to-use interface and thousands of drivers to run wide-format printers, cutters and hybrids. SAi Flexi 11 with Cloud, the latest version of the software, also includes exclusive cloud-based tools designed to drive new customers and new business to print providers.
“SAi Flexi 11 with Cloud software is the only RIP software in the industry that brings new customers to print and sign businesses through SIGN.COM,” explains Mark Blundell, CEO & Chairman of SAi. “Flexi users can also receive new business from their own free web store because of the unique cloud-based tools that come standard in Flexi.”
Also on show at SGIA will be the award-winning SAi PixelBlasterTM print-to-finish production software for large-format print businesses, as well as an updated version of SAi EnRouteTM CAD/CAM software for the CNC signmaking and manufacturing industries. This industry-leading 3D CAD/CAM suite features an easy-to-use interface designed to undertake detailed 3D work with surface creation and texturing.
International Sign and Printmakers Guild now over 2000 strong
Visitors to SGIA can also see the latest developments within the increasingly popular International Sign and Printmakers Guild (Guild), which has already welcomed over 2000 members since its launch earlier this year and of which SAi is a founding sponsor. At the show, non-members will be given the opportunity to enroll in the association which is designed to help sign and print providers reach new customers, grow their businesses and reduce costs.
Bringing businesses new customers through SIGN.COM
Pivotal to the Guild, is SAi’s new web store, SIGN.COM, which delivers a dedicated one-stop location for the North American sign and print-buying public to quickly and easily design and purchase custom signs, banners, posters and similar products. SIGN.COM gives signmaking businesses and wide-format print providers increased revenue when they become Guild members. All sign and print jobs ordered through the site are routed to the Guild member network for production and delivery to the customer, which also enables Guild members to build new long-term business relationships.
Educational presentation – increasing profits with color management
Underscoring its objective to help users cut costs and improve processes, Dean Derhak, Product Director at SAi will deliver a free-to-attend presentation entitled Increase Your Profits with Color Management on Friday October 25th from 11.00am-12.00pm in the Color Management & Workflow Solutions Zone (Booth#440). The presentation will explain specific techniques on how effective color management and media profiling can help large format print businesses cut ink and media costs.
