We first invested in AVA in 1998. Until then design interpretation and separation was handled by engravers. Creative colouration would take place using plates and GMS. Development times were long and creative options limited.
Since internalising this work significant progression has been made and AVA has been the core pivot between the pure artwork process and the realisms of traditional manufacturing. Whilst other software has its place within our CAD studio, the continued use of AVA as the go-to application is testament to the quality of the package its sustained development and improvements through regular updates.
Our core workflow of wallcovering manipulation, separation and colourway prints would be significantly impaired without AVA. Moreover, the entry into digitally produced products in 2006 has utilised the accuracy of the software further, with direct profiling of each of our three digital presses.
The Materialise module is also used on a weekly basis to support the product development and marketing functions of our businesses.
There are few companies who offer the quality of product and back up service as well as AVA, even fewer who can do so in such a personalised manner.
