The tilia Griffin desktop application was first introduced in May 2017 for both Mac and Windows. The overarching design goal in Griffin is to provide a fast, modern application that can solve difficult, time consuming tasks while being easy to understand and use. In April 2019, an automated version of Griffin called tilia Griffin Auto was released, offering the same feature set as the desktop edition via a RESTful web service with an extensive, intuitive API.

The tilia Griffin app for Enfocus Switch provides the entire feature set of Griffin within Switch flows. The app is designed to be highly dynamic, with virtually all the 300+ properties controllable via variables and script expressions. This dynamism allows you to tackle a wide range of tasks while simplifying your flows and reducing processing time. Under the hood, the Switch app connects to tilia Griffin Auto which performs all tasks and returns results back to the app for further processing within Switch.
