EFI announced that it has bought Metrix Software, the automated print planning and imposition technology company.

Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed, but the Metrix team has joined EFI, including Metrix CEO and founder Rohan Holt, who is now director of EFI Metrix products.

Marc Olin, EFI’s Productivity Software interim CFO, senior vice president and general manager said, ‘EFI and Metrix have had a positive working relationship for several years. Adding the Metrix team’s exceptional talent and technical know-how helps us drive innovation even further, ensuring that EFI customers can continue to reduce the cost and improve the profitability of their printing operations.’

EFI will continue with the development and customer support activities for all of Metrix’s software products. Metrix’s technology offering will also expand to serve as an integrated impositioning module for EFI’s Pace™ MIS product. As time progresses, Metrix’s technology will also become integrated with EFI’s other MIS and ERP workflow offerings. EFI plans on continuing Metrix’s existing reseller and channel arrangements.

‘EFI is the leader in print production workflow and I know our worldwide customer base will benefit enormously from the new level of integration with EFI’s products,’ said Rohan Holt.

The newest version of Metrix will be introduced this month at the 2013 SGIA Expo to be held in Orlando.
