Yashiv comments: “The demand for digital imaging solutions, and therefore the technology Pixology has to offer, is exploding. Now we have secure funding, the expansion of the management team will ensure that Pixology can capitalise in the marvelous opportunities that are presenting themselves. Over the course of 2000, we recruited 22 new people into our business, built a sales and operations team and doubled the engineering team. We expect 2001 to be just as productive and I am confident that we have the right people in place to respond to the challenges facing us.”
