- Move to one solution to support flexo and folding carton divisions
- To improve accuracy and timeliness of communication
Flexo and offset printing specialist LTi Printing is to start using the EFI Radius MIS/ERP software to optimize its operations.
PSI to Radius
LTi Printing, a US-based carton and label printer operating for over 25 years, started using EFI PSI Flexo software in 1997, but had to create its own systems to support the folding carton business.
After experiencing steady growth over the years, LTi decided the time was right to move to a single ERP system.
EFI Radius is an ERP software platform designed to enable end-to-end, automated business process management from order inquiry to cash receipt for label, flexible packaging, converting and folding carton businesses.
EFI said the Radius software offers flexibility to manage the unique requirements of printing and packaging companies to help optimize and automate: sales estimating, production planning, scheduling, materials management, shop floor data collection, job costing, time and attendance.
Mike Frost, LTi Printing president, said: ‘We needed one solution to support our flexo and folding carton divisions and the changing marketplace, and EFI Radius is the perfect fit.
‘It’s robust enough to support all types of printing, and will enable us to better serve our customers by ensuring we have the right resources at the right place at the right time.
‘Having a centralized place for information will be huge, enabling data to be easily viewed and shared.
‘Radius will improve our accuracy and timeliness of communication, both internally and with customers, thereby enabling us to better utilize our current resources and grow the business without additional overhead.’
EFI Radius general manager David Taylor said: ‘In line with our philosophy of providing a transition path for our PSI Flexo customers, EFI Radius is a robust platform perfect for packaging companies that are looking to take their business to the next level while staying with the industry’s leading supplier.’
