EFI Wins Nine Must See 'Ems Awards with New Printing Technology Innovations
FREMONT, Calif.—September 8, 2015—EFI earned nine awards this year in the annual Must See ’Ems graphic arts technology competition—the most presented to any company this year. The Must See ’Ems competition recognizes the most compelling new products to be presented at North America’s largest annual graphic arts trade show, GRAPH EXPO 15.
This year, EFI received three times more Must See ’Ems awards than any other vendor. This is also the fifth consecutive year that EFI has earned the most Must See ’Ems Awards. EFI’s awards recognize EFI Inkjet, Productivity Software and Fiery products that print service providers can use to drive higher production efficiency and increased productivity while developing new revenue opportunities.
EFI’s history of award-winning product innovation helps customers optimize their production operations. One customer, Los Angeles-based Color OnDemand Printing, benefits from using several EFI technologies that have received Must See ’Ems Awards over the past five years.
“EFI helps Color OnDemand Printing address productivity, automation and high-quality imaging challenges in nearly every aspect of our digital printing operations,” said Color OnDemand President Ray Benjamin. “The Fiery DFE, Pace MIS and VUTEk inkjet graphics production technologies we have from EFI make us much more competitive with an integrated, end-to-end digital production workflow.
