EFI acquires Group Rhapso

EFI has bought Group Rhapso S.A, a printing and packaging software solutions developer based in Les Ulis, France, which will help to further strengthen EFI’s packaging portfolio.

Rhapso has two software products that were of interest to EFI. The first, the Rhapso Graphisoft MIS, is primarily marketed in the French-speaking countries and fits a pattern of EFI buying up local-language MIS in the printing industry, and packaging in particular.

The second is the Rhapso PC-Topp scheduling and production control solution for the corrugated industry, which extends EFI’s scope into a new field. This is sold worldwide and available in 13 languages.

Marc Olin, EFI’s chief operating officer, commented: “This is a strong and complementary addition to our growing portfolio of MIS/ERP solutions.” He added: “We welcome the addition of over 500 customers to our existing customer base which will further establish EFI as the clear leader of MIS and ERP related solutions in Europe and reassert our commitment to the region and to local markets.”

Rhapso MIS and ERP products will become part of the EFI Productivity Software family of products and the Graphisoft MIS will be integrated with EFI Fiery. The Rhapso employees have joined EFI and will be integrated into EFI’s European operations Rainer Neugebauer, former Rhapso managing director, has now become EFI’s director of Corrugated Products.

EFI hasn’t said what the deal cost, other than to say that it won’t affect the company’s Q2 or full-year 2014 results.
