Lexmark Acquires Twistage And AccessVia


Lexmark International has acquired San Francisco-based Twistage and Seattle-based AccessVia. Twistage offers an industry-leading, pure cloud software platform for managing video, audio and image content. Twistage’s framework easily integrates with customers’ existing applications and is flexible and adaptable – bridging gaps in a company’s media management infrastructure.

When combined with Lexmark, Twistage will enable customers to capture, manage and access all of their content, including rich media content assets, within the context of their business processes and enterprise applications. AccessVia’s customers benefit from industry-leading signage solutions to create and produce retail shelf-edge materials, all from a single platform, which can be directed to a variety of output devices and published to digital signs or electronic shelf tags. AccessVia’s software prints on-demand in stores on monochrome and color laser printers, smart multifunction products and on handheld devices in the aisle, or centrally in high-speed production print facilities.

The technology also enables customers to publish to digital shelf signs, large digital displays or electronic shelf labels. AccessVia, when combined with Lexmark’s managed print services (MPS) and expertise in delivering print and document process solutions to the retail market, will enable customers to quickly design and produce in-store signage for better and more timely merchandising in a highly distributed store environment.
