Electronics For Imaging of Foster City, California, expanded its business-management software portfolio with the acquisition of Streamline Development LLC, which develops the PrintStream MIS product. PrintStream CEO Laurence Snyder is joining EFI’s Advanced Professional Print Software (APPS) division.
PrintStream technology focuses on direct mail, as well as general mailing and fulfillment services provided by printing companies. In particular, the PrintStream Warehouse Management/Fulfillment module will now become an add-on module to a number of EFI’s existing ERP/MIS products. EFI’s existing MIS portfolio includes Monarch, Pace, PrintSmith and Radius. EFI will continue to support PrintStream installations but will not sell the technology as a standalone MIS product.
“While PrintStream is the first product we have acquired as part of our new consolidation strategy, we will be actively seeking out additional Print ERP/MIS solutions world-wide to consolidate,” said Marc Olin, GM of EFI APPS.
EFI’s annual Connect user conference, with a significant amount of focus placed on the MIS segment, takes place April 26 to 29 at Wynn Las Vegas.
