Press release from the issuing company

Foster City, Calif - November 10, 2003 - Electronics for Imaging, the world leader in digital imaging and print management solutions for commercial and enterprise printing, today announced that Colorado Printing Company of Grand Junction, CO, is using EFI's Printcafe PrinterSite Internal(tm) integrated job specification tool and Hagen OA(tm) Print Management solutions to speed job estimate turnaround and improve efficiency. "PrinterSite Internal is an extremely effective communication tool that gives our remote sales people a portal into the information technology of our business and a direct connection with internal staff," said Dan Thurlow, Colorado Printing Company's Chairman. "PrinterSite Internal has really sped up the estimating process, as all the information comes directly from the website and is mapped directly into the Hagen system. Our estimators and customer service representatives receive correct information the first time so they can turn around estimates more quickly, freeing them up to work on other jobs. Plus, quotes are also delivered faster to the client, increasing our chance of winning the job." PrinterSite Internal is an integrated job specification and status web-based tool that allows a printer's sales force to interact more efficiently with internal staff. Using PrinterSite Internal's secure, Internet-based connection, sales staff enter specifications directly into the Printcafe's Hagen OA print management information system. PrinterSite Internal enables remote viewing of quote requests, estimates, job status and invoices, enabling the entire team to access critical job information, from the sales person at the client to the in-house estimator and production team. Colorado Printing Company is a sheet-fed printer with revenues of $10 million, serving advertising agencies, corporate clients and design firms throughout the Rocky Mountain region. They have a ten person sales staff. They began using PrinterSite Internal in January 2003. Thurlow has found PrinterSite Internal offers his business significant advantages: " We see PrinterSite Internal as a way to expand business opportunities, as our sales people can be more active in their territory without spending time calling or faxing the office, and they can better serve customers by providing instant status updates because they have the job information at their fingertips." "Computerization is vital to running a successful printing business," concluded Thurlow. "From the customer's request for quote to the shipment of the finished product, Hagen and PrinterSite Internal enable us to integrate all the pieces of our operation and provides helps our company to further progress towards computer integrated manufacturing."
