Meadows is based in the USA, just outside of Chicago, Illinois, and we are proud to say that all of our software development, sales, and technical support are based here as well. When you contact us for support, you communicate directly with a local Meadows technical expert, who happens to be sitting right down the hall from one of our software engineers. Customers absolutely rave about the level of support they receive from our team, and because we develop all of our own software in-house, we are also able to react very quickly to customer issues, sometimes providing software updates or modifications the very same day! This level of support is absolutely critical for variable data publishing applications where even a small glitch can have a broad effect on your production process.
Some of our major partners include Konica Minolta, Canon, Fujifilm USA, and Enfocus. Our software has been rigorously tested on all of the latest digital presses, and we fully support the most current variable data output formats such as PDF/VT.
