EFI Wins ON DEMAND Best of Show Honourable Mention Award for Pace Management System

EFI Readying New Version with iPad and iPhone Applications / Along with More Tools for Wide-Format Printing

(PresseBox) (Philadelphia (USA), ) ON DEMAND Conference & Expo - 20 April 2010 EFI™ (NASDAQ: EFII) have been recognised at this year's ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition with a "Best of Show" Honourable Mention award in the Print MIS/ERP category for EFI Pace. Pace, EFI's fully-integrated, scalable, browser-based print shop management program, won for enhancements to its upcoming release, which include a more comprehensive iPhone® application and improvements to wide-format capabilities.

"This recognition from InfoTrends and ON DEMAND reiterates that EFI Pace is a leading Print MIS solution aimed at meeting the evolving needs of mid-sized commercial and specialty printers," said Jay Farr, general manager of EFI Pace. "Now in version 23, Pace has gained many loyal customers over the years, and we're excited to show off the new features in this latest version at ON DEMAND".

"This award is meant to recognise exceptional innovation in the digital printing industry", stated Jeff Hayes, president of InfoTrends. "EFI is one of the leaders in our industry, and we are pleased to acknowledge their accomplishments".

EFI Pace is a complete suite of software modules that gives total control to print shop managers, anytime, anywhere. The new iPad and newly advanced iPhone applications enable Pace users to estimate jobs, track shipments, and review job status and customer accounts from the palm of their hand. Wide-format advancements in version 23 allow customers to quote multiple products and complex tiling jobs, as well as make ganging decisions "on the fly". Pace also just received Job Definition Format (JDF) certification for "MIS to Finishing", passing the stringent JDF testing process. With JDF capabilities, Pace users can now reduce set-up time and eliminate data-entry errors by using one file format across the production process.

InfoTrends, a leading market research and consulting firm in the digital imaging and document solutions industry, partnered with the ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition to produce the awards program. ON DEMAND, the digital printing and automated production event, is the largest conference and exposition dedicated to the technologies that personalise, manage, print, and deliver content.
