SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the professional sign making, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, has announced that it has extended its popular subscription-based model to three newly-created EnRoute packages. 
The feature-rich software solutions – EnRoute Complete, EnRoute Designer and EnRoute Fabrication – enhance CNC cutting capabilities for CAD/CAM users and have been specifically created to meet the varying requirements and budgets of these customers.
Based on the popular subscription model of SAi’s Flexi signmaking software, the new three-tier EnRoute offering ensures greater flexibility and cost control for users by enabling access to the exact productivity and design tools desired. Customers have the option to pay by either monthly or yearly subscription.
FURTHER ADDED-VALUE BENEFITS
Subscribing to software also presents additional advantages for users by ensuring instant access to the very latest updates ahead of the full product releases – and without incurring upgrade fees. EnRoute Complete, EnRoute Designer and EnRoute Fabrication each include on-demand online movies* that provide insightful explanations of the software’s various production attributes; all packages are also available in more than a dozen languages.
“The subscription option of our award-winning Flexi software continues to prove popular among users, so extending the multitude of benefits delivered by this model to the EnRoute community is a logical step,”
