Documobi launched its documobiFUSE app this week at Graph Expo 2015, one of the biggest print and publishing trade shows in the world.

The app allows user-generated content to be embedded into brand media via smartphones, tablets and wearables, to build a more direct and responsive brand-to-consumer relationship. It was awarded a US patent last year and has already attracted attention from the industry, having won a Future of Print Award, which recognises upcoming highlights from Graph Expo.

Pete Lancaster, founder and CEO of documobiFUSE, said: “It’s extremely encouraging that the industry has recognised the ingenuity and innovation of documobiFUSE ahead of the official North America launch.

“To be recognised with a Future of Print Award cements what we already know, documobiFUSE will be integral to the future of print.”

FUSE’s launch in North America will be followed by a UK launch, aimed at brand and marketing agencies, at Technology Expo 2015 in London on October 5-6.
