Press release from the issuing company

New features include smartwatch support and production trends dashboard for instant information access

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA – SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the professional sign making, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, has announced an update to its popular SAi Cloud mobile app that offers sign and print business owners greater production overview and productivity management.

Working in conjunction with SAi Flexi version 12, the SAi Cloud mobile app is designed to provide business owners with remote access to valuable production information and job reports while on the road or away from the office. Importantly, the update adds new features that include innovative smartwatch support and an informative production trends dashboard – a first of its kind for wide-format RIP software.

Smartwatch support for Apple and Android devices

Available now on the Apple Watch and Android Wear, the smartwatch support uniquely helps business owners of SAi Flexi to quickly view recently completed jobs, regardless of the owner’s location. This reduces the need to be in the office or workshop and enables owners to instantly update customers during on-site visits.

New production trends dashboard

Exclusively available on the mobile app, the production trends dashboard provides an evaluation of daily production rates along with monthly and annual totals compared to previous months, quarters and years, as well as estimated predictions on the company’s future performance. With the ability to determine whether their production is increasing or decreasing, business owners can make more informed decisions.

“The nature of smart technology invariably means that, like all of us, business owners have become reliant upon it as a means of accessing information 24/7, wherever they may be,” says Dean Derhak, Senior Product Director at SAi. “A number of sign shops today are probably unaware of how their true production output is trending month-to-month. The updates to our SAi Cloud mobile app allow our customers to draw direct comparisons either weekly, monthly or annually and spot areas that could help them improve throughput.”

The free SAi Cloud app is available now in the Apple App Store and Android Google Play stores. The app works exclusively with Flexi version 12 – industry-leading software for wide-format print and cut production.
