EFI announced that it has earned eight awards in the annual MUST SEE 'EMS graphic arts technology competition - winning the most honors presented to a single company for the third consecutive year. EFI's MUST SEE 'EMS awards recognize innovations developed across the company's Inkjet, Fiery and Productivity Solutions business units, highlighting the many new, competitive advantages EFI offers to printing companies seeking to improve productivity, reduce costs, enter new markets and grow profits.
The MUST SEE 'EMS competition serves as an industry-wide roadmap to the most compelling new print production technologies presented at North America's largest printing trade show, Print 2013. This year's competition yielded more entries than ever before. EFI's eight honors surpassed the company's total in 2012, when it took home five MUST SEE 'EMS, as well as its total in 2011, when the company earned two MUST SEE 'EMS and nine of the competition's now-discontinued "Worth-A-Look" runner up honors.
EFI's awards in 2013 underscore the company's aim for its technologies - better, more efficient production for graphic arts professionals. EFI's MUST SEE 'EMS-winning products in 2013, with categories shown in parenthesis, include:
• EFI IQuote cloud-based estimating (Sales and Order Entry).
• EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite, version 4.5 (Color Management and Quality Control).
