EFI Acquires printLEADER

May 9, 2013  By

EFI adds to its portfolio of Management Information Systems (MIS) software with the acquisition of printLEADER, a privately held MIS developer based in Palm City, Florida. 

printLEADER technology is installed at over 800 printing operations. The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, but EFI states the purchase is not expected to be material to its second-quarter or full-year 2013 results.
“We are very pleased to have printLEADER join the EFI family and our expanding portfolio of business automation technologies,” stated Marc Olin, Senior VP and GM of EFI Productivity Software (EPS). “We also welcome printLEADER’s customers to our global client base.”

printLEADER’s MIS products are to be integrated into EFI’s PrintSmith Vision product line. EFI states 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. In addition to PrintSmith Vision, EFI’s MIS portfolio includes EFI Pace, EFI Monarch and EFI Radius, which will not be altered after the purchase.


“Our customers need to remain extremely competitive in today’s 24/7 world,” stated John Fleming, Founder and President of printLEADER. “After 25 years, the timing is right to join EFI.”
