EFI has acquired Metrix Software, the Edmonds, Washington-based automated print planning and imposition technology company.

EFI will be continuing development and customer-support activities for all of Metrix’s software products, the company reports, and EFI plans on continuing Metrix’s existing reseller and channel arrangements.

Metrix’s technology offering will also expand to serve as an integrated impositioning module for EFI’s Pace MIS product. And, over time, Metrix’s technology will also become integrated with EFI’s other MIS and ERP workflow offerings.

“EFI and Metrix have had a positive working relationship for several years,” says Marc Olin, EFI’s interim CFO and senior vice president and general manager of the company’s Productivity Software business. “Adding the Metrix team’s exceptional talent and technical know-how helps us drive innovation even further, ensuring that EFI customers can continue to reduce the cost and improve the profitability of their printing operations.”

Metrix CEO and founder Rohan Holt becomes director of EFI Metrix products.
