EFI acquires PrintLeader

EFI has acquired US-based print MIS software developer PrintLeader for an undisclosed sum.

The company’s acquisition of PrintLeader, which has a client base of around 800 commercial and in-plant printers in North America, follows a string of acquisitions in 2012 enabling the company to bolster its MIS, ERP and web-to-print reach.

As part of the deal, PrintLeader’s MIS products will be absorbed into EFI’s browser-based application PrintSmith Vision, launched in 2011 to provide users with a suite of estimating, quoting, order tracking, scheduling and data collection tools.

“We are very pleased to have printLEADER join the EFI family and our expanding portfolio of business automation technologies,” said Marc Olin, senior vice president and general manager of EFI Productivity Software.

“We also welcome PrintLeader’s customers to our global client base. They will see additional opportunities through the combination of EFI’s and PrintLeader’s technical innovations.”

PrintLeader  founder and president John Fleming said that the company’s acquisition by EFI would enable it to offer its customers a “more robust and feature-rich suite of software products and high-value, web-to-print storefront solutions”.
