EFI: Record Year for Radius MIS/ERP Software FOSTER CITY, CA. — E FI a world leader in customer- focused digital printing innovation, announced it had a record year of sales for its newly acquired EFI Radius MIS/ERP software, adding more new business in the second half of 2010 than any period since Radius was founded. Two of these customer wins are Topflight Corporation, charter member of the Flexographic Technical Association and a company focused on printing and converting labels and complex die cut components for the medical, cosmetics, consumer goods and electronics markets; and The Robinette Company, a full- service flexible and paper packaging manufacturer and FTA member since 1991, which is a converter serving the food, beverage, nutraceutical, construction, textile and health care markets. Both companies reviewed available options in the market- place and selected EFI Radius to help them be more efficient and cost effective in serving their customers. “Unlike other ERP offerings, Radius meets our unique requirements without the need for significant customization,” said George Thomas, president of The Robinette Company. “ T he financial stabil- ity of EFI, strong field support, and ease of use of the system were the other top reasons we selected Radius.” Rod Stone, president, Topflight Corp., explained, “Radius will help streamline our business by enabling us to move from our current ERP system and dozens of spreadsheets to one, integrated system. By improving both data and job costing accuracy, we’ll be able to make more informed business deci- sions. ” 28 FLEXO February 2011 www.flexography.org FLX_Feb11_mech.indd 28 2/16/11 8:50 AM
