printIQ CEO Anthony Lew welcomed the move: “Over the last 20 years, and with the help of many amazing people, we have established our business as a market leader that drives innovation through the print industry. I am delighted to have found a partner that can help us to write the next chapter in our story. Banyan shares many of the values that we hold so high and has a proven reputation for growing businesses.”

"printIQ has always had a history of rising to the challenge of pushing the limits of what a print MIS can do,” said Lew. “From our early days as a small New Zealand start-up, we have continued to work tirelessly to build the best solution possible. Our inspiration has always been our customers who have believed in the vision of what the platform could be. Consistently pushing it to the next level means that development is never complete. We are excited to have a partner who will help us deliver on that promise by investing in R&D, growing into new markets, and delivering the best solutions for the print industry.

“It’s an exciting time as I already see many of the benefits of partnering with a long- term investment focused software company. My goal is to continue building the product, extending our reach into new markets, and improving the way we listen, partner with, and support our existing customers.”

printIQ has experienced significant growth over the past 12 months, with operations in New Zealand, the US, Europe, Australia and Canada and employing more than 50 staff.  Lew will remain at the helm as CEO along with the same teams for sales, marketing, customer service, support and product development.
