The Edinburgh developer hopes to secure seed funding early next year to progress its Compilr software from a pilot to a fully scalable product.

Pogo claims the technology will “greatly reduce” monetary and environmental costs for corporations printing large, personalised documents, with one of the UK’s largest housing providers and a major player in the healthcare service currently piloting the software.

It has appointed Paul Reid, founder of geospatial specialist Sigma Seven, which was sold to a FTSE 50 firm in 2015, as non-executive director.
