Printable Announces EFI Monarch Integration

Press release from the issuing company

Solana Beach, CA --  Printable Technologies Inc., a leading provider of software as a service (SaaS) web-to-print and marketing personalization solutions, announced today a new integration with EFI Monarch, the premiere print management solution previously known as EFI Hagen.

Printable's best in class SaaS web-to-print solution, MarcomCentral, now seamlessly integrates with EFI's Monarch Executive to form the most comprehensive end-to-end solution on the market. The integration of the two solutions allow print service providers to implement a single optimized workflow solution that can streamline operations, reduce costs, ensure on-time job delivery, optimize technology, and capture business.

"We are extremely pleased to announce the new EFI Monarch integration." said Coleman Kane, CEO and president at Printable Technologies. "Having MarcomCentral connect with the leading print MIS software provides such a powerful and complete solution to the marketplace. Both large and midsize print service providers will be able to take advantage of the two technologies in ways previously not possible." Kane adds, "The open architecture and SaaS deployment of MarcomCentral are key. These capabilities allow us to quickly and easily integrate 3rd party systems and deliver a comprehensive print production workflow that is essential to our client's success."

F.P. Horak, a mutual customer of EFI and Printable, was the first organization to employ the new integration. "The new integration dramatically increases our workflow efficiencies and provides hours of labor savings for production, order entry, and accounting," says Pam Junge, Director of Print eCommerce at F.P. Horak. "We've been involved in web-to-print since 1999 and having Printable as a business partner has helped us grow and service our customer base. Our experience and ability to integrate with clients through MarcomCentral has helped us acquire a number of significant accounts and provides a clear edge over competitors using other solutions."

Clients currently owning both EFI Monarch and MarcomCentral can now have Printable orders reflected in one central schedule with EFI Monarch, providing a more accurate and comprehensive database for reporting. Other benefits include; the ability to create Monarch job numbers using MarcomCentral, the ability to sync job numbers, have a bi-directional flow of order information, and eliminate the re-keying of data.
