Ottawa’s Tilia Labs, a leading developer of planning and imposition solutions for the printing industry, has received accolades from some of North America’s leading inkjet and wide-format print providers at two recent events in Austin, Texas. At both the Inkjet Summit July 26-28 and the Wide-Format Summit July 28-30, Tilia Labs was named “Company to Watch Out For.” In the competition voted on by the 150 executive-level attendees, Tilia Labs was chosen from more than 40 companies representing their technologies. The award is given to the companies who attendees consider to have the most exciting new technology presented at the event. Both summits are by invitation-only for senior managers and executives who want to understand how current and future printing technology will impact their business and investment decisions.
Presenting at the events was Tyler Thompson, Solutions Director at Tilia Labs, who introduced the company’s dynamic nesting and imposition solution, Tilia Phoenix. Delegates discovered how customers who are already using the cost-based imposition technology maximized material usage and removed the human touchpoints in their prepress workflows. “Delegates at this event came from large corporations like Vistaprint right down to little mom-and-pop printers, and it feels great to know that they can all see the value of our application,” said Thompson. “Software technology can be challenging to explain, but the results do the job for us. Planning for a print job is a tricky process, especially for micro and short-run digital printing. Tilia Phoenix takes the guesswork out of job planning and prepress layout so customers can reduce labour, maximize material usage, and improve profits.”
