Sahara Printing Company in Cairo, Egypt Installs EFI Monarch and PrintFlow
Company cites multi-plant capability and automatic scheduling as determining factors
The Sahara Printing Company was founded in 1995 by CEO Nadim Elias and partner Adel Botros. But Elias's experience dates back to his grandfather's publishing company, Elias Modern Press. The company prides itself on personalised customer collaboration 24 hours a day, seven days a week serving Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
"We chose EFI Monarch because we have two printing plants. We have been searching for an MIS solution for two years now and we determined that Monarch has the best multiplant support and PrintFlow provides unique automatic scheduling capabilities", said Dahlia Sobhy, Sahara Sales & Client Service Manager. "It will help us increase productivity significantly. That's especially important when you are dealing with an international customer base".
EFI Monarch is an automated print production and management solution for large, single and multiplant operations. The system is highly scalable providing capabilities for both individual plants and enterprisewide installations. Monarch enables the efficient management of every work type from the most basic jobs to the most complex projects by automating workflows from job submission through dispatch.
EFI PrintFlow is a dynamic scheduling tool that closes process gaps, adjusts to rapidly changing conditions and optimises the entire business operation. Printflow uses the concepts of lean manufacturing and the theory of global constraints to ensure that printing capacity and throughput is utilsed to its fullest potential.
"Sahara Printing's success is based on their determination to provide customers with more than great output. They believe in the ultimate customer service experience. EFI Monarch and PrintFlow will allow them to provide superior service while becoming even more profitable", said Marc Olin, General Manager and Vice President of EFI's Commercial Print Systems unit.
