SA International (SAi), a leading provider of software solutions for the professional sign making, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, has marked the 25th anniversary of its market-leading SAi Flexi sign-making solution with the official launch of its new performance-improving mobile app. Working in conjunction with SAi FlexiSign and FlexiPrint version 11 and 12, the MyFlexi mobile app is specifically designed to provide print shops with efficiency-enhancing tools to improve throughput and minimize overall job production time – from set-up to completion. Integral to this is remote access to FlexiQuote, which extends the benefits of SAi’s web-based tool by allowing sign and print businesses to quickly and effectively create customer quotes for new jobs remotely when visiting customers. The quotes instantly appear in FlexiQuote and can be viewed in the shop, ensuring improved capacity management, smoother workflow and greater productivity.
The web-version of FlexiQuote features a simple, user-friendly design that comes pre-loaded with a database of standard media and costs to rapidly and accurately configure pricing, while factoring in materials, labour, commissions, discounts and taxes. As such, the handy FlexiQuote Wizard overcomes the occasionally troublesome and time-consuming job-quoting process often faced by sign and print providers, and can give a customer quote within 30 seconds. Another valuable feature within MyFlexi is the MyFlexi QR and Barcode Tester, which enables print shops to quickly test the QR codes generated in Flexi’s QR Code Creator. This improved functionality enables print shop employees to quickly validate QR codes and accelerate their production. The web-based QR Code Creator allows print shops to add an interactive element into their signage by automatically converting text into a QR code of the user’s requirements – such as web links, email addresses, phone numbers or SMS messages. MyFlexi mobile app users also have access to useful resources in multiple languages, including informative training videos. The free MyFlexi app is available now on IOS iPhones and iPads and Android mobile phones and tablets, and can be downloaded in the Apple App store and Android Google Play store.
“As the first and only wide-format RIP software boasting not one, but two companion mobile apps, SAi is leading the way when it comes to delivering efficiency-enhancing tools,” said Dean Derhak, Product Marketing Director at SAi.
“The technology provides those using Flexi in their production workflow with competitive advantages with their customers, as well as invaluable production trends and insights.”
