EFI has released a new version of its Radius packaging MIS/ERP system targeted at the small to medium business segment. The software is an entry-level, fully integrated automation system designed for single-site label, flexible packaging and folding carton converters.
Built on the Radius Enterprise Edition used by larger packaging companies, the new EFI Radius Small Business Edition comes with a standard suite of modules designed with a streamlined user interface to ensure that smaller companies can quickly and easily use the software to improve efficiencies and simplify workflows.
“We’ve taken our market-leading Radius enterprise solution used by larger companies and adapted it to the unique needs of the small-to-medium business market, enabling more packaging companies to benefit from a world class solution specifically designed to integrate and manage their unique business processes,” said David Taylor, general manager of EFI Radius. “Smaller, single-site packaging organizations have been asking for a more entry-level version of our ERP system to take their operations to the next level, and we’re excited to fill this need for them.”
Modules in the Small Business Edition include Estimating, Tooling Management, Inventory, Purchasing, Scheduling, Shop Floor Data Collection and DMI (Direct Machine Interface), accounting, and a one-stop Order Manager. With the goal of making the system as efficient as possible, the Order Manager module is a single source location to obtain and perform job level processes, from production estimates to shipping and everything in between, without having to access multiple modules.
