The US-based leading vendor and developer of information systems for the printing industry has moved to take market leading position in Australia and NZ.

It bought the privately held Prism Group for an undisclosed sum. The Brisbane-based company, originally founded in New Zealand, has had a stellar rise to become a significant player in the sector around the world. Although headquartered in Brisbane, it has operations in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States Holdings. Its products include Prism WIN MIS and Prism QTMS automated shop floor management and work in progress tracking software.

”We are extremely happy to bring Prism into our expanding portfolio of customer-centric technologies. They have built a very impressive list of clients in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South Africa and North America, and we welcome those clients to our large global client base,” said Marc Olin, GM of EFI’s Software Applications (“APPS”) business unit. “In addition, we’re very excited to have Prism’s employees join EFI and help us expand our rapidly growing global presence with their years of expertise in software for the printing and packaging industries.”

“We intend to continue to meet the needs of Prism’s existing client base with the same enthusiasm that Prism has for the many years they’ve been in business while offering them access to the full portfolio of EFI products,” continued Olin.

“We are very excited to be joining EFI, the clear leader in the business process automation software space for printing and packaging companies,” said Filip Buyse, President and CEO of Prism. “It is a natural fit for our client base and we look forward to introducing them to EFI’s portfolio of solutions.”

Prism software will become part of EFI’s Software Applications (APPS) portfolio. EFI intends to integrate support and operations of Prism into the existing APPS organization, which will provide the EFI PrintSmith, EFI Pace, EFI Monarch and EFI Radius software products while continuing to support the existing Prism client base.
