Established nearly 90 years ago, Florida-based Southeastern Printing is a recognised leader in producing high-quality commercial and digitally printed materials. During the recent economic downturn, they have taken advantage of the opportunity to acquire a new facility in Pennsylvania and shift their main focus to roll-fed labels. After growing into its third label manufacturing facility, the need for an integrated, packaging-specific ERP system was evident. "We had identified other packages, which we looked at in depth, but the answer kept coming up EFI Radius," says Diana Gannon, chief operating officer at Southeastern Printing.
The company has been using the EFI Monarch MIS for its commercial printing business since 2000 and is looking forward to the integration of EFI Radius with their existing Monarch Accounting system. That experience with EFI, along with recent interactions with EFI Radius, gives Gannon confidence in the upcoming implementation process. "We can tell that EFI's consulting services are really going to help us through the planning phase of the implementation process - it doesn't matter how good the software is if you don't get a good implementation."
In today's rapidly evolving packaging industry, EFI Radius is constantly anticipating the next window of opportunity for its users, allowing them to meet their customers' shifting needs. Gannon says, "What the industry and our clients are looking for is vendor-managed inventory. The inventory and distribution management capabilities of EFI Radius are key. Being able to enter forecasts, minimums, maximums, lead times, economic order quantities and those types of MRP features of the system are what we need most."
