DALIM SOFTWARE (www.dalim.com) makers of highly efficient, scalable software solutions for the creation, production and management of print and cross-media content, announces that it has invested in its UK sales and support infrastructure and opened a DALIM UK office, effective October 1. As part of these activities, DALIM SOFTWARE has assembled centralised, top of the line engineering capabilities, with direct access to R&D and all of DALIM SOFTWARE headquarters’ support.
Amidst all of the external difficulties which have made it challenging to work anywhere around the globe, DALIM SOFTWARE is having a strong 2020. Its customers are reaping productive benefits of DALIM SOFTWARE solutions, enabling them to work effectively from anywhere—office or home. With the backdrop of Brexit and COVID, the company decided that the United Kingdom should be an area of particular focus for its’ solid end-user base, as well as anyone who requires solutions that can be operated anywhere.
Focused on serving the UK market, DALIM UK will assist existing and new customers. DALIM SOFTWARE will continue to maintain direct and indirect sales channels, welcoming companies to get the most from their solutions. The company also intends to continue to engage with printers where, particularly, high-speed inkjet requires the robust productivity that DALIM SOFTWARE solutions, like the new DALIM DRIVE, can uniquely deliver.
However, the company’s breadth of solutions has expanded beyond print and premedia companies. It serves brands, retailers, and packaging service providers, who can all benefit immediately from an implementation in today’s distributed workforce environment. A local presence in the UK has become even more vital for leading international brands, which have grown to trust DALIM SOFTWARE’s global strategy with local installations built throughout the globe. The dynamic nature and requirements of brands and retailers—which DALIM SOFTWARE now serves every day—deserves the same attention as anywhere else. The company sees an enormous potential in helping UK marketing services departments and companies to work uninterruptedly and collaborate seamlessly on even the most complex content. For example, as DALIM SOFTWARE products have evolved to allow users the agile implementation of their own digital strategies, they also offer choices for SaaS adoption—hosted or on premises—with legacy infrastructures if required. The company has developed competences within the framework of their AWS Partner certification. Along with Fogra, SWOP or ISO certifications, it has consolidated DALIM SOFTWARE’s core competencies roadmap far beyond software development, only.
Colin Price has been appointed managing director of DALIM UK. He has extensive experience selling at every level— both technical and commercial—and has served as a technical backup for sales teams. Most recently, Price was a partner at Conversion UK, a company selling & supporting disruptive digital finishing technologies. He has also held sales management and support roles with Lüscher Technologies, Screen Europe, Scitex and Linotype-Hell. This has provided him with in-depth knowledge and experience in a wide range of applications. Most relevant, though, was Price’s experience as business director at Turning Point Technologies from 2001-2008. This included work representing high value solutions, incorporating DALIM SOFTWARE’s TWIST workflows, among others.
“We consider the transition of support from Germany to a UK entity a very significant investment. As new rules of commerce could affect how business is consummated in the future, this will assure that there will be no interruption of service to the entire UK market and our customers. By placing a physical presence in the UK, our support is much closer—and faster,” explains Carol Werlé, DALIM SOFTWARE CEO. “Important to our presence is the appointment of Colin Price as managing director. In the past, Colin played an instrumental role in the growth of DALIM SOFTWARE. He introduced to the market the first installation of DALIM MiSTRAL—a forerunner of DALIM ES. We consider him the most talented DALIM SOFTWARE representative in the UK. No one deserved this role more than he.”
“When I was selling DALIM SOFTWARE solutions in the early 2000’s, they set the bar for workflow automation in repro and print companies. The mainstream workflow products of today have only just caught up with those 20-year old features,” recalls Price. “Many customers are still users today. It was amazing to see how DALIM SOFTWARE products have been extended in terms of the markets they can serve. DALIM ES can be deployed in just about any business to automate and improve processes, whilst managing collaboration between supply chain teams. Working remotely is a new necessary. In the current climate it’s essential that everyone can do their job from wherever they are. DALIM ES makes this possible. Any brand that wants to streamline their creative operations, improve speed-to-market, whilst enabling teams to work from anywhere should investigate DALIM SOFTWARE.”
Apart from creating a greater DALIM SOFTWARE presence, DALIM UK offers an added point of contact for users to keep up-to-date with all things DALIM, and for DALIM SOFTWARE to keep in tune with the UK market.
