Big Picture

EFI has announced its acquisition of Prism Group Holdings (“Prism”). Headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, with operations in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States, Prism provides Prism Win MIS and Prism QTMS automated shop floor management solution, focused on general commercial printers, converters, web printers, mailers, and packaging printers.

“We are dedicated to providing a portfolio of industry leading products allowing customers to choose the right solution for their environment with the consistency of delivery needed for long-term success,” said Marc Olin, senior VP and GM of EFI’s APPS business unit.

EFI will continue to support Prism Win (now EFI Prism), but will no longer offer it 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.

In addition, EFI will support QTMS (now EFI QTMS), but no longer offer it to new customers. Instead, EFI will offer new clients EFI Auto-Count DMI for automated shop floor data collection and real-time shop floor production visibility.
