EFI Offers Online "How-To" Guides

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Foster City, Calif. - Oct. 14, 2008 - EFI, the world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today launched completely updated "How-to" educational resources aimed at helping Fiery customers quickly learn to use the many features of their systems to maximize their technology investment. By downloading from efi.com or accessing the guides directly from the Fiery's Command WorkStation interface, customers can easily and quickly learn how to complete complex workflows to increase productivity and improve quality and efficiency. The educational resources include step-by-step instructions, flash videos and sample files for the successful printing of documents for many Fiery workflows on Fiery for Production, Fiery for Corporate Office, Color Profiler Suite and Splash.

"These integrated training tools are an excellent way to help a novice user to get started and an expert user to become even more familiar with the functions and features available on their Fiery, all with the click of a mouse," said John Henze, vice president of marketing, Fiery division, EFI. "Customers tell us they want the ability to have real-time answers to questions, so being able to access instructions on-the-fly right at the Fiery workstation is a huge time saver."

The "How-to" educational resources can also help solve training gaps for customers with limited staff and budgets. For example, a printer with high staff turnover can get employees up-to-speed quickly by utilizing the tools at their workstation through Command WorkStation or at a computer via efi.com.

Specifically, educational resources are available in the areas of graphic arts, imposition, color management, job management, production, variable data, and scanning.

History of Educational Efforts

The "How-to" resources are the latest in EFI's educational efforts - the company has published a series of free "ABC" booklets over the years to help educate users about important industry technologies. Available "ABC" guides include "ABCs of VDP," "ABC's of Design for Digital Printing," and "ABC's of Next Generation Office" downloadable here: http://www.efi.com/promo/abcseries/

Customers can also download a Fiery FreeForm Kit (http://www.efi.com/freeformkit/) with everything needed to start one-to-one marketing campaigns and services effectively. The FreeForm technology already exists in Fiery and is driver based, so it requires no specific VDP software application to work. The FreeForm Kit comes with templates of typical jobs that can be used "as is" or modified to produce marketing pieces such as real estate flyers, direct mail cards for retail, fundraising mailing cards and certificates and awards. The kit also comes with sample databases in Excel spreadsheets with simple, step-by-step instructions on how to use and modify the templates.
