Infigo Software Limited wants your vote after entering “Pitch to Rich”, a competition to win funding from one of Britain’s top entrepreneurs Sir Richard Branson.
The Virgin boss is looking to invest £1 million in businesses in three categories, with Crawley-based web-to-print and cross media marketing software creators Infigo entering the race in the ‘grow’ category for established businesses looking to expand.
The top prize in this category is a £250,000 marketing campaign, with two runners-up receiving a £100,000 campaign.
Infigo, set up in 2010, would use the investment to increase its successful UK operations and to expand to America and Canada, where they have already had significant interest from North America.
Managing director Douglas Gibson has recently taken teams to two exhibitions in the region, the 10th annual Dscoop conference in Washington, DC, aimed at HP Graphic Art users, and the Graphics Canada exhibition in Toronto.
The company recently secured a first deal in North America, with Signature Print-IT, a leading print company in the region, based in Regina, Canada.
Infigo’s business concentrates on two key areas using its Catfish and MegaEdit platforms:
Personalised print: this allows businesses and printers to upload products online and have them easily edited and previewed while improving the process for the customer, who can make changes swiftly, speeding up the approval process, thus bringing cost and time efficiencies. Its photobook editing suite has proved a hit with photographic printing companies and their customers.
Marketing engagement solutions: this lets businesses improve their communication to the end user, whether it is selling a new product, service or utility. Catfish Hybrid Mail helped a household name company streamline its email and post output so that everything was centralised and consistently branded.
