AVA have been creating software to facilitate the design and production of decorative print for use on Apple® Macs® for almost as long as they have been around.
Our focus on a relatively narrow area of the total ‘print’ market has enabled us to develop highly specialised software based on continuous feedback from partner customers, with whom we have now been working for several decades, in a process of continuous review and improvement. AVA today is structured in two (overlapping) groups. One group focuses on the particular needs and challenges of printing onto textiles (Fashion, Home Furnishing), while the other specialises in the challenges of decorative printing onto other ‘Surfaces’ (Flooring, Wallcoverings, Ceramics).
We believe that even the best software can only fulfil its full potential as an aid to improved quality and productivity if its users are properly trained and supported. That’s why we have built a unique team of multi-lingual industry specialists to provide unlimited training and support for our customers all over the world.
One of the very few good things to come out of the Covid 19 pandemic was our discovery of the effectiveness of individually tailored e-training delivered to our customers all over the world. In addition to reducing our environmental footprint due to reduced air travel, the cost effective nature of e-training has enabled us to offer free annual refresher training to all AVA customers. This, however, remains balanced with the need for physical, on-site training and customer support in certain situations – for example when installing and calibrating new digital printers. In looking to find just the right balance for individual customers, members of the AVA team will never be allowed to forget that AVA is committed to being a technology partner, rather than just a ‘software supplier’ to our customers – a commitment reflected in the fact that we spend as much on customer support as we do on research and development.
I hope that you will find this website helpful, but please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
