Foster City, CA (May 2009) – EFI, the world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that Nahan has chosen a comprehensive suite of EFI MIS software solutions to ensure its on-going success and customer satisfaction. Based in St. Cloud, Minn., Nahan is an end-to-end commercial printer and direct marketing provider that serves businesses across the country – including many Fortune 500 brands – with high quality, custom printing services and complete direct marketing capabilities. Privately owned and operated since 1962, the company has 600 employees.
After an eight-month review process that involved eight industry vendors, Nahan selected EFI Monarch, a powerful combination of Monarch Foundation (based on Hagen OA) as the core management system, Monarch Planner for advanced production planning and JDF control, EFI PrintFlow for dynamic scheduling and optimization, and EFI Auto-Count for shop floor data collection via direct machine interface that delivers an end-to-end workflow and management solution that is unmatched in the industry. In addition, Nahan will install the award-winning EFI Digital StoreFront web-to-print platform.
“When we began this process last year, we were looking for a seamless, integrated solution that could take our business to the next level. We concluded that EFI Monarch is the best solution in the marketplace that can offer this, from one of the strongest service providers in the industry,” said Steve Burns, director of information technology at Nahan. “We look forward to working closely with EFI over the coming months to implement these offerings, and to a long-term relationship with the company. In particular, we’re anxious to begin using Monarch’s advanced scheduling capabilities and detailed data analysis and custom reporting features.”
