EFI acquired privately-held Alphagraph, provider of MIS solutions

Alphagraph is a provider of MIS and ERP software products for the printing industry. It develops and sells products such as Prinance, Printy and Primus.

Alphagraph has over 6,000 customers in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and throughout the rest of the world. Alphagraph will become part of EFI’s Software Applications (APPS) portfolio. EFI intends to integrate support and operations of Alphagraph into the existing APPS organization, which will continue to sell the EFI PrintSmith, EFI Pace, EFI Monarch and EFI Radius software products to the industry while continuing to support the existing Alphagraph client base.
