New version of industry-leading signmaking software to be unveiled at FESPA Global Print Expo
Flexi 22 adds new improvements to productivity features and unlocks profitable new application opportunities such as direct-to-film and direct-to-garment
SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the signmaking, digital printing, textile and CNC machining industries, has announced the launch of Flexi 22, a fully-updated and more powerful version of its highly-successful industry-acclaimed signmaking software. The new solution, the only all-in-one design, print and cut software for sign and print providers, is engineered to further increase productivity and workflow efficiencies for users and will be demonstrated live for the first time at FESPA Global Print Expo (Berlin, Germany, May 31st – June 3rd).
Building on the success of SAi’s flagship Flexi package, Flexi 22 meets the exacting production needs of sign and display users by incorporating proven sign-specific design tools, RIP software and print-and-cut software for direct vinyl cutting.
New and unique features
Additionally, the latest version of Flexi has been engineered to provide improved connectivity for users through the SAi Connect dashboard, a feature unique to the new software. Via one central interface, this allows users to easily manage their software licenses or subscriptions, download new versions or updates, as well as monitor and review production data reports. SAi Connect also resides in the user’s toolbar, enabling instant accessibility without taking up valuable real estate in the screen workspace.
Flexi 22 also streamlines the production workflow and delivers greater efficiency benefits by allowing more job modifications to be applied directly within Flexi Production Manager, thereby eliminating the need to back-track or redo. This includes the ability to create contour lines or develop and store orders with the original job files and settings, making reprint orders faster, easier and more profitable. In addition, Flexi 22 offers the capability to add jobs to nested groups, without the need to first ‘un-nest’ other jobs. Users simply add the new job to the queue, then drag and drop to the nested group.
Simplified design and production of DTF and DTG applications
Users of the new Flexi 22 also benefit from the capability to leverage profitable new application opportunities more easily. For example, Flexi 22’s Direct-to-Film and Direct-to-Garment features simplify the design and production process to provide an easier path for those seeking to add tee shirt and other textile printing applications to their service offering.
“Flexi 22 represents the most powerful version to date and comes fully loaded with specific productivity- and efficiency-enhancing tools that have been integrated following research into the additional tools needed by customers to address their precise needs,” explains Annette Plummer, VP Marketing, SAi.
“Unlike some software options on the market that comprise only the RIP, SAi Flexi combines an easy-to-use design interface with a powerful RIP to give users a complete, seamless package,” she adds. “With Flexi 22, we are confident that our sign and display customers will find everything they are looking for from a signmaking software.”
Available for purchase from June 22nd, Flexi 22 will be accessible by monthly subscription for as little as €/USD 64,99* per month with a 12-month commitment.
As well as Flexi 22, FESPA visitors will also be able to get a preview of SAi’s first subscription-based OEM product, Flexi Design VerteLith™. The companion software has been developed exclusively for Mutoh users in EMEA and will be demonstrated by Mutoh (Hall 1.2, Stand 1.2-C40) during the show.
