Press release from the issuing company
New Orleans – SGIA – EFI, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that BelAire Displays has purchased the flexible EFI Pace print management solution to help grow their business and improve productivity. BelAire is a major resource for digital imaging, large format printing and distribution of retail, outdoor and vehicle graphics in the Northern California area. They are an existing EFI customer, operating a VUTEk 3360 superwide format printer and EFI Colorproof XF proofing solution.
BelAire selected EFI Pace because of its advanced technology and open architecture. The built-in inventory tracking system and fulfillment module will enable them to track raw materials and stock on-hand. In addition, Pace will give BelAire the ability to quickly generate estimates, produce job tickets, and create invoices all from one application.
"We've struggled for years to find a truly robust job management system that met all of our needs – relying mainly on a mix of homegrown and off-the-shelf systems," said Glenn Huish, CTO at BelAire. "With EFI Pace, we can finally bring together many processes within our shop to give us the information we need about our jobs and our customers, enabling our business to run more smoothly and more economically. The decision to implement Pace was made easier by the fact we are already a happy EFI customer, and trust the company to deliver top-quality products and services."
EFI Pace is a fully integrated, browser-based print shop management program that includes software modules for estimating, scheduling, production, accounting, sales management and e-commerce. The solution provides an in-depth customer relationship management process to help businesses maximize opportunities. The full suite is accessible on both Mac and PC platforms to better leverage emerging technologies that are defining the digital workflow process. Most importantly, the scalable solution grows with the business and improves productivity at every step along the way.
"Utilizing an MIS solution is critical for success in today's competitive environment – spreadsheets and notations simply can't perform as management tools," said Jay Farr, general manager of EFI Pace. "EFI Pace is a leading solution that helps take the guesswork out of job planning and will allow BelAire to optimize their print operations, decrease costs and improve customer satisfaction."
