Erembodegem, Belgium, March 16, 2016 – (www.chili-publish.com) – At drupa 2016, CHILI publish will demonstrate how its innovation and market development efforts have resulted in two significant advances for the company: CHILI publisher 5.0 and revolutionary PDF rendering solution called CHILI rendro. On top of showcasing the latest technology, CHILI publish will also share new details on expanded partnerships and provide real-world stories of how their solutions have enabled customer success. CHILI publish is on stand F40 in hall 7a at drupa 2016 from May 31 till June 10 at the Messe Düsseldorf.
Kevin Goeminne, CHILI publish CEO, says “When we came to drupa in 2012, we were a young, entrepreneurial company with an innovative solution that we believed would be revolutionary. Since then, we have grown in every way possible. We developed the next generation of our technology, established a worldwide presence, formed partnerships with a global list of industry partners, cultivated a loyal customer base, and demonstrated that our offering truly does revolutionize publishing with advanced online editing capabilities and so much more. While we enter drupa 2016 as a larger, more successful organization, we still hold the same commitment to innovation and growth as we did in 2012. We are proud of all that we have accomplished and helped our customers to accomplish, and we look forward to sharing our next generation solutions with visitors to our stand at drupa 2016.”
Brand-new at drupa
CHILI publish is a company that was founded on innovation. Its ongoing investment in research and development – combined with in-depth market knowledge – has resulted in the creation of the cutting edge solutions that will be on display at drupa, where the company will debut CHILI rendro.
This breakthrough release fundamentally improves how PDFs are rendered, giving users the most meticulous rendering, streaming and 3D viewing of PDF’s onto any platform that supports the HTML5 canvas. When files require urgent approval, consultation or editing, CHILI rendro ensures there are no barriers to fast, accurate communication and collaboration.
The company will also showcase CHILI publisher 5.0, the next generation of its online editor. This release includes a range of new features, including a new user interface that aligns with the way users are editing documents today. CHILI publisher 5.0 also includes support for Asian languages, reflecting the company’s expansion into the Asian marketplace.
Goeminne continues, “Industry partnerships are important to us. The robust APIs that are part of CHILI publisher, along with our ongoing investment in product development and market expansion, attract partnerships with best-in-breed technical companies who wish to integrate our solutions into their offering. These integrations extend the value of CHILI publish technology and enable us to better address customer challenges.”
Since its inception, CHILI publish has fostered productive working relationships with leading providers who offer a wide range of technical solutions. The list of solutions includes: MIS (Tharsten, Cerm, Gamsys), e-Commerce platforms (Magento, Woo commerce, Nop commerce, Intershop, Shopify), Asset Management (North Plains, Canto Cumulus, Adam software), Cross-Media and Web-to-Print solutions (XMPie, Dalim, Pageflex), packaging (Esko), workflow automation (Enfocus) and digital printing solutions (Xeikon).
Bjorn Willems, Director of Product Management at Enfocus notes, “Thanks to the development efforts of our partner CHILI publish, we can give our users the quality/performance they want in the PDF review process. We are grateful for the innovation efforts of CHILI publish.”
In addition to these technical partnerships, the company has also expanded its reseller network. Resellers in 20 countries in regions around the world now distribute CHILI publisher. In addition, the company has recently established a network of resellers serving the Asian region.
“The market has adopted online editing as key element of making brands and marketing campaigns successful,” Goeminne states. “As a result, an increasing number of industry leaders are joining with CHILI publish to meet the evolving needs of our mutual customers. These mutually beneficial partnerships – and the expansion of our reseller network – have contributed greatly to our growth over the last four years.”
Engaging Customers for Mutual Success
Since 2012, CHILI publish has grown its customer base to include marketing service providers, magazine publishers, brand owners, printers and packaging converters from around the world. These customers rely on CHILI publisher to protect their brands, improve their marketing efforts, and enhance their operations.
Marketing service provider Fineline is an example of the type of customer that has come to rely on solutions from CHILI publish. Owner Richard Miller says, “Many of the companies we are speaking with are serving multiple locations, franchises or departments, and they often are not working from the same marketing or business script across these various entities, which can result in brand dilution or operational inefficiencies. CHILI publisher has helped us to solve that big challenge by bringing business, marketing and print operations together under one customized, easy-to-use platform that benefits the users, the company, and the brand.”
At drupa, CHILI publish will be kicking off a “Spicy Stars” campaign that highlights stories of customers who have used CHILI publisher to grow their operations.
A Global Operation
CHILI publish has added new offices to support its expanding global footprint and growing partner network. The company now employs 20 people at its corporate headquarters in Belgium. The U.S. office of CHILI Publish is operated out of New York City. This office supports sales and service in the U.S. market. The company recently expanded into the Asian market, opening an office in Singapore to better serve that growing market and opportunity.
Goeminne concludes, “All of us at CHILI publish are proud of what we have accomplished, and we look forward to sharing this news – and much more – at drupa. But the growth of CHILI publish won’t stop at the Messe Düsseldorf. We’ll continue to use our spirit of innovation, software and application expertise and devotion to customer success to develop robust publishing solutions that stay one step ahead of the demands of the market.
