Tower Litho receives grant to develop web-to-print service
TORONTO—Tower Litho in Toronto will develop its web-to-print capabilities thanks to a $50,000 government grant.

Tower Litho was recently awarded the grant through the federal government's Digital Technology Adoption Pilot Program (DTAPP) to adopt digital technologies to improve productivity. DTAPP is delivered by the National Research Council Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP).

As part of its “Powered by technology” program, the funding will benefit Tower's W2P development – "one of the key technologies Tower Litho is developing. W2P will automate order processing, job imposition, file transfers and all administrative functions".

Tower Litho is a trade printer in a 40-inch offset-press environment ranging from five-, six- and eight- colour perfecting presses, an HP Indigo 7500 digital press and full bindery services.

DTAPP is a relatively new $80 million federal program to help small- and mid-size enterprises in all business sectors connect with technology. The program runs until March 31, 2014.

Eligible firms may receive a financial contribution of up to $99,999 for a specific project; eligible costs can cover labour, contractors, travel, feasibility (and other studies) and training. Non-eligible costs include the purchase of computer hardware and/or off the shelf software.

For more information about the program, call the toll-free number at 1-855-453-3940 or visit www.nrc.gc.ca/irap/dtapp
