While financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, it is not expected to be material to EFI’s Q3 or full year 2014 results. DiMS! employees have joined EFI’s Productivity Software MIS/ERP group.
“DiMS! organizing print is a respected provider for print MIS/ERP software serving some of the industry’s top European and multinational print and packaging companies,” said Gabriel Matsliach, senior vice president and general manager, EFI Productivity Software. “Europe is a fast-growing and very dynamic region for EFI, so we are excited to have DiMS! team members and customers join us as we continue creating more value for customers around the world with efficient business and production workflow solutions.”
“EFI has outstanding capabilities as the world’s leading print MIS/ERP provider and it has always been one of the most progressive firms in our industry in championing integrated workflows,” said Gerard Marneth, former CEO of DiMS! organizing print. “The DiMS! organizing print team is pleased to join EFI to offer advanced, productivity enhancing MIS/ERP solutions. Together, we can help customers worldwide set new benchmarks for reduced waste, faster turnaround time and administrative efficiency.”
EFI has assumed support operations for DiMS! customers. DiMS! technology also will be integrated with EFI Fiery digital front end technologies for automated digital print production. EFI will discuss DiMS! products later this month at its booth 1902 at the Graph Expo tradeshow, September 28-October 1 in Chicago. An expanded range of MIS/ERP topics relevant to DiMS! users will be added to the EFI Connect users conference, which will take place at the Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas, January 20-23, 2015.
