PODi is a not-for-profit industry consortium of vendor companies that was formed in 1996. Its charter is to foster the growth of the digital printing industry through market and standards development activities. PODi promotes interoperability through the PPML suite of open, XML based standards, test suites and certification. PODi supports the regional communities and other markets by producing the highly acclaimed Best Practices in Digital Print reports and case study database.
PODi Program Affiliates are regional communities that are focused entirely on digital print service providers, consultants, marketing service providers, agencies and enterprises interested in digital print. Caslon & Company is the PODi Affiliate for North America and is serving as the international Affiliate until other regional Associates are formed.
PODi members are industry leaders representing all facets of the digital printing ecosystem, including software, hardware and other industry vendors, print and marketing service providers, and enterprises. As digital printing becomes a more powerful and widely used communication medium, PODi helps members understand how it can be integrated into their marketing, customer service, IT and executive management strategies.
