FOSTER CITY, Calif., April 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EFI ™ (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that WorkflowOne, a leading provider of print management, marketing and distribution services, has selected EFI Monarch and EFI Digital StoreFront ® to automate and unify its 15 U.S. locations. WorkflowOne is already relying on Fiery ®-driven digital printers in numerous locations to deliver blazing speed and high-quality color.

WorkflowOne provides print production and document management, billing and customer communication, marketing solutions and promotional strategies, and fulfillment and distribution services for North America's most admired businesses and brands. Its base of 12,000 clients includes leaders in the healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, retail, non-profit and service sectors.

As a result of several acquisitions and an extensive manufacturing network, WorkflowOne was in need of a single, unified manufacturing platform that would provide visibility and portability, streamline operations, and integrate numerous systems. After a comprehensive 14-month evaluation, the company selected EFI Monarch – a flexible, powerful, intelligent, and automated solution – as its print manufacturing management system.

" EFI Monarch met all of the 'must have's' we were looking for in a new system, with strong out-of-the box features and the ability to create custom integrations to other key platforms," said Tom Dailey, vice president of operations at WorkflowOne. "Only EFI has the combination of a robust platform that is highly configurable and a roadmap for evolving the product that will ensure we can meet the future needs of our customers. And with integration to our Fiery-driven color printers, we'll deliver a state-of-the-art, integrated environment."

WorkflowOne was already an EFI Hagen™ user in several locations, and is now moving all 15 U.S. printing facilities to the core Monarch system. The company will roll-out the balance of the Monarch productivity modules along with Digital StoreFront, EFI 's award-winning web-to-print platform. Comments Dailey, "We chose Digital StoreFront because of its functional integration to Monarch, its adaptability within our existing storefront solutions, the rules-based specification gathering, and real-time estimating and quoting capabilities."

In addition, WorkflowOne is integrating Monarch with Fiery-driven digital printers from Xerox and KODAK's PRINERGY Software, and the KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal to gain efficiencies and fully automate their pre-press workflow.

"We're confident we made the right choice, and view EFI as a partner in the future success of our business," said Ernie Miller, executive vice president of global operations. "When fully integrated across our print facilities, we believe we'll have the most comprehensive solution in the industry and a true foundation for growth. Not only will this greatly streamline and bring added efficiency to our internal operations, but our network of strategic partners will be able to take advantage of these benefits as well."

"With their decision to implement EFI products, WorkflowOne has taken a critical step in the transformation of their business efficiency and productivity," said Marc Olin, senior vice president and general manager of APPS, EFI. "We're certain they will realize significant improvements across the board, most importantly in their ability to exceed customer expectations."
