EFI Acquires printLeader
Products will become integrated into EFI’s PrintSmith Vision product line.
EFI has acquired the assets of privately held printLeader, the Florida-based provider of print MIS software products.
The printLeader MIS products will become integrated into EFI’s PrintSmith Vision product line, part of EFI’s EPS group. EFI reports that it will also continue to support the existing printLeader client base, which consists of more than 800 commercial and in-plant printing operations across North America.
“We are very pleased to have printLeader join the EFI family and our expanding portfolio of business automation technologies,” says Marc Olin, senior vice president and general manager of EFI Productivity Software (EPS). “We also welcome printLeader’s customers to our global client base – they will see additional opportunities through the combination of EFI’s and printLeader’s technical innovations.”
Headquartered in Palm City, Florida, printLeader was founded by John and Nancy Fleming in 1989. Its Visual printLeader product comprises a suite of integrated modules for pricing, estimating, order entry, invoicing, job history, accounting, data collection, contact management, and Web-based Internet solutions.
“After 25 years, the timing is right to join EFI, a leader in our market that produces outstanding software solutions, so we can offer our loyal customers a more robust and feature rich-suite of software products and high-value, Web to print storefront solutions,” says John Fleming. “Our customers need to remain extremely competitive in today’s 24x7 world.”
