EFI Acquires Streamline Development and PrintStream SoftwareFebruary 17, 2011
EFI PrintStream will continue to be supported, but no longer offered to new customers. Instead, EFI will offer new clients these four ERP/MIS platforms:
• EFI Monarch – for larger single and multi-plant operations looking for full workflow automation with specialization in publication, book, direct mail, transactional and large commercial printing operations;
• EFI Pace – for mid-market digital, offset, hybrid, wide format and specialty printing operations;
• EFI PrintSmith – for on-demand, copy shop and small commercial operations;
• EFI Radius – for labels, folding cartons and flexible packaging operations.
EFI has historically supported all of its ERP/MIS offerings for many years even after it stopped actively selling them. For example, the PSI, Logic and Covalent software systems are all legacy ERP/MIS applications that EFI continues to support. For PrintStream clients that wish to move to a new platform, EFI will be offering special incentives to encourage them to transition to one of our four platforms, as well as transition assistance to help make the move as seamless as possible.
The EFI annual user conference, Connect, will now include a track for PrintStream customers, covering detailed roadmap information about upcoming releases and what new features and functions are planned over the coming year. Connect takes place April 26-29 at Wynn Las Vegas and more information is available at www.efi.com/connect.
