Roland DG and SAi donate $20,000 of FLEXI software to Wollongong TAFE

SYDNEY, Australia, November 29, 2010 - Roland DG a worldwide leading supplier of solutions to the Graphics Arts, Design and Technology industries, and International Software Company SA International (SAi) have continued their support of the next generation of sign makers, by donating $20,000 of Sign making software (Flexi Designer) to Wollongong TAFE Sign Industry department at the recent 'Signies Big Day' held at the campus.

The newly released Flexi 10 software will be used by TAFE students in units such as layout and design, vinyl signage production, and digital signage production in conjunction with their state of the art Roland VS-640 printer/cutter provided by Roland DG earlier this year. SAi's Flexi Sign range of software is recognised as the number one choice for dependable, feature-rich Sign Making software with uncompromising quality, and is widely used in the Sign Making industry.

Michael Doherty of Wollongong TAFE said the donation would provide students with the tools they need to succeed in the industry. "The new software will enable our Sign section department deliver the latest highest quality training and lessons in line with the new CPC (18774) Competencies units in the new Signage Course delivered this year" said Doherty. "This Software will be used not only by the first, second and third year students in the sign department, but will also be used in the TVET Schools programs which involves year 11 and 12 students that run in the same department through the south coast school programs."

Roland DG are proud to continue their support of the institution "With a shortage of skilled sign writers in the industry, we feel it is vital to support the grassroots level and make sure they are operating with the latest innovative technology" said Marc Margetts, Roland DG Managing Director, who was on hand made the donation. "Wollongong TAFE are passionate about the sign industry and have a great system in place. We look forward to working with them in the future."
