EFI has launched a new version of its Radius packaging MIS/ERP solution targeted at the small-to-medium business segment. The software is an entry-level, fully integrated automation solution ideal for single-site label, flexible packaging, converting and folding carton companies.

Built on the powerful Radius Enterprise Edition used by larger packaging businesses, the new EFI Radius Small Business Edition comes with a standard suite of modules designed with a streamlined user interface to ensure smaller companies can quickly and easily use the software to improve efficiencies and simplify workflows.

“We’ve taken our market-leading Radius enterprise solution used by larger organizations and adapted it to the unique needs of the small-to-medium business market, enabling more packaging companies to benefit from a world class solution specifically designed to integrate and manage their unique business processes,” says David Taylor, GM, EFI Radius. “Smaller, single-site packaging companies have been asking for a more entry-level version of our ERP system to take their operations to the next level, and we’re excited to fill this need for them.”

Modules in the Small Business Edition include Estimating, Tooling Management, Inventory, Purchasing, Scheduling, Shop Floor Data Collection and DMI (Direct Machine Interface), accounting, and the one-stop Order Manager.  With the goal of making the system as efficient as possible, the Order Manager module is a single-source location to obtain and perform job level processes, from production estimates to shipping and everything in between, without having to access multiple modules.

In addition, EFI has released an updated version of its enterprise edition of Radius, with new estimating for corrugated packaging, capabilities to handle complex carton processing and integration with Esko Artwork.
