Sepialine unveils Technesis acquisition and plans for UK-based expansion

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Sepialine, a US-based leader in the print management software industry, has announced that it has finalised an agreement to acquire software company Technesis, and revealed its intentions to expand its UK-based presence. The agreement will enable Sepialine to increase innovation of their product line, and also provide Technesis customers with new functionality and continued software support.

The two companies have a long history together, having both started out around the same time, and both companies are based in the San Francisco Bay area. The integration of Technesis will allow Sepialine to develop new features to its product offerings, and the company will also look to expand its operations in the UK, where it currently has a facility in London’s Docklands.

As part of its plans for expansion in the UK, Sepialine has hired Martin Nash as Regional Sales Director for EMEA. His focus will be on working on expanding Sepialine’s reseller base within the UK and beyond, to help expand its presence in that market. 

Martin joins Sepialine from electronic procurement suppliers, EU-Supply, where he was a Solutions Consultant dealing with the Public and Enterprise sectors, and also Humanitarian Aid organisations in the EMEA. Prior to that, Martin was a Corporate Account Manager for the Public Sector with Lexmark, and was also with Canon for 5 years as Business Development Manager, again dealing with the Public Sector.

Commenting on the acquisition and the plans to develop in the UK, Sepialine Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Jeremy Evans, stated, ““We are excited to bring Technesis into the Sepialine family. The leadership of Technesis has shown great insight over the years and we are eager to gain access to their knowledge and innovation.”

With regards to its development plans for the UK market, Jeremy added, “The appointment of Martin underlines our intention to increase our foothold in the UK and Europe, as we look to expand the business going forward. Martin’s previous experience in developing relationships in the EMEA regions will help Sepialine to achieve our goals.”

As part of the acquisition agreement, Paul Collart, President of Technesis and other members of the Technesis team will join Sepialine, assisting with development of software solutions, inside sales and vendor relationships. The company will continue to operate under the name Sepialine.

Sepialine’s Argos Manager programme provides application and device independent print capture, tracks network and local printers, extracts complete job statistics, providing print, copy, scan and fax facilities and is used for design, graphics, communications, reprographics and FM providers worldwide, including several high profile print companies in the UK.

Argos is used by prominent architecture, engineering, design and legal firms to capture and bill project-related document expenses. Customers upgrading from Technesis PCS will see immediate benefits, including expanded manufacturer support, as-printed tracking, secure print release, mobile printing, as well as phone system and 3D printer integration.
