The Road Is Never Straight

To make things even more challenging, we have to contend with fast – evolving technologies, together with ever-changing customer preferences and buying habits. It is therefore crucial for businesses to be agile in their thinking in order to successfully negotiate all the twists and turns such a dynamic market environment offers up.
Trudge The Straight Road or Dance The Winding Road
“As soon as something stops being fun, I think it’s time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live.” – Sir Richard Branson
“It’s time for serious introspection when things are currently being done in the same way as they were a year ago.” – Tri-Squared
The straight road is invariably characterised by monotony, stress, pressure and uncertainty, whereas, dancing the winding road creates a mindset of inspiration, challenge, fun, growth and security.

Wizard™ has catapulted their product line-up to a whole new level with the launch of their Z Series of Computerised Mat Cutters. One of the hallmarks of the Z Series is edge-to edge [zero wastage] cutting made possible by Wizard™ SmartClamps™ system, however, the value-adds of Wizard™ Z-Series by no means stop there. With further development emphasis being on application diversity, ease of use and convenience, all products in the Z Series are powered by Wizard™ user-friendly FrameShop® software which has become the industry-leading solution for custom mat design, nesting, tiling, and optimized outside cuts. In addition, the decorative design capabilities of their pen, debossing, box making, and vinyl cutting accessories provide virtually unlimited creative possibilities, with switching from one application to the other made quick and easy through Wizard™ SwitchBlade™ quick-change cartridge system.
