As we celebrate our tenth anniversary, we look back at the key events that have shaped Infigo into who we are today.
Since our inception, back in December 2010, Infigo has grown rapidly. We’re now widely recognised as a distinctive global player within the printing industry. Everything that we have achieved over the last decade, is down to our loyal and dedicated workforce. They are always on-hand to offer the support and technical know-how needed to ensure our customers succeed.
Infigo CEO and founder, Douglas Gibson, says “We serve customers in a wide range of sectors and industries, and they have adopted Infigo to help create new revenue streams, increase profits through online selling, enhance customer retention and interaction as well as improve workflow and process management. It is without a doubt that over the last 10 years, this business has exceeded all expectations. This has been possible due to our dedicated team and our special customers. We have all collectively played a part in Infigo’s success story and I cannot thank everyone enough for their contribution.”
Inception – December 2010
Company founder, Douglas Gibson, forms Infigo Software Limited (now simply entitled; Infigo) and is appointed Managing Director – a title he holds to this day. With a strong background in the printing industry and knowledge of printing software, Infigo is set up to offer digital storefronts to commercial printers, allowing their customers to place print orders online.
Originally targeted at medium-sized print businesses, functionality includes enhanced stock management, flexible pricing options, efficient approval and ordering processes – as well as a simple and intuitive user interface.
HP SmartStream partnership - April 2016
We proudly become HP SmartStream solutions partners, a global partnership with HP Indigo, and seamlessly integrate into their PrintOS platform, specifically focused on Site Flow. Gershon Alon, Manager, Workflow Solutions at HP Indigo says “We are excited to be working with Infigo as a SmartStream partner. We see that the solutions they have to offer and their expertise will add great value to our clients.”
Becoming a SmartStream partner means Infigo joins a group of industry-leading providers, delivering end-to-end workflow solutions for almost any application. This is true to this day.
Recognised in The Parliamentary Review – October 2018
In October 2018, we are officially recognised by Lords and former cabinet members for outstanding work in the technology sector. Infigo is chosen to appear in the 2018 Parliamentary Review, which highlights businesses that are making an impact on their industry while inspiring others to do the same.
“We’re extremely proud to be in the Review as it shows where we are going as an organisation,” said Gibson. The Parliamentary Review is a series of independent publications, which aims to share best practice among policy makers and business leaders.
Company rebrand & fresh focus – August 2021
Despite the economic uncertainty caused by the global pandemic, Infigo comes out in typical fighting fashion. While other businesses are battening down the hatches, Infigo focuses on growth and a fresh look – this includes a complete overhaul of Infigo’s branding, a website redesign and clarifying Infigo’s mission and values.
Douglas says: “Perhaps we should have been laying down and being quiet but anyone that knows me, and knows Infigo, knows that’s not what we’re about. So, at a time when conventional wisdom would say we should have preserved cash and we should have sat back to see what happens, we decided to rebrand, we decided to bring in a whole load of new features.
“This was about realigning the business with a clear strategy of simplicity. Which is the core of what we’re doing with the new brand as Infigo. So simplifying our products, simplifying the mix, simplifying our offering, our pricing, making life simpler for our clients.”
We’ve only just begun...
While we’re justifiably proud of what we’ve achieved over the past 10 years, we’re already looking towards the next decade. As well as the rebrand we’ve been busy developing a host of new features, giving printers greater revenue generating opportunities than ever before.
These include our powerful analytics engine Insights, our intuitive content builder CMS+ (which makes it even easier to design unique storefronts) and our Adobe InDesign plugin, Invent, which reduces the design process by up to 80%.
Response from testing has been fantastic and we can’t wait to begin rolling out these features, getting more feedback and fine tuning them to meet the demands of printers over the next 10 years.
We have huge ambitions for the next decade and we’re passionate about helping printers harness the power of e-commerce, automation and web-to-print. To fully understand the endless possibilities we can offer, why not see the platform in action?
Our team would love to walk you through our key features and benefits. We look forward to e-meeting you at a free 1-to-1 demo soon.
