Following the recent close of the Radius Solutions acquisition, EFI (Foster City, CA) has begun integrating the Radius packaging software into its portfolio of print management solutions.

EFI has rebranded the product name from PECAS Vision to EFI Radius to align with the naming structure of its other MIS offerings. EFI will continue with the current development structure and product roadmap, and will maintain Radius offices in the United States and Europe.

EFI Radius software is being added to the displays at upcoming company and industry events. The Radius Solutions North America Users Conference will take place next week in Chicago (July 21-23), featuring EFI president Fred Rosenzweig and Jetrion GM Dr. Kenneth Stack as speakers. Rosenzweig will address ways to build customer intimacy by developing a culture of customer-driven product development and service. Stack will speak about the increasing market demand for short run label printing, the benefits of Jetrion’s solutions and the digital economics that make it affordable.

In the Fall, Radius will be showcased alongside the award-winning Jetrion label printers in the EFI booth at the Labelexpo Americas show (Chicago, Sept. 14-16) and among the full suite of EFI solutions at Graph Expo 2010 in Chicago, Oct. 3-6.

“All of these exciting changes mean that our customers and prospects now have access to the worldwide resources and expertise of EFI. In particular, they will have access to many more applications from EFI that will integrate to Radius products and help drive customer connectivity and profitability,” says David Taylor, general manager of EFI Radius, formerly president and CEO of Radius Solutions. “At the same time, it’s ‘business as usual,’ as I remain at the helm and the Radius product and support teams remain in place to serve our customers. We’re thrilled to officially be a part of the EFI family.”

Radius software is part of the Advanced Professional Print Software (APPS) business unit of EFI. The company intends to integrate a number of its products with EFI Radius, including Jetrion, VUTEk, Fiery, Digital StoreFront, PrintFlow and Auto-Count.
