A Packaging & label MIS/ERP software.
EFI Radius is an industry leading enterprise packaging and label printing MIS/ERP software. The solution helps packaging businesses prouce product labels, folding cartons, flexible packaging, plastic extrusion, and other printed materials.
Radius offers a complete end-to-end business integration that offers business intelligence and smart plant optimization. The multi-language, multi-currency, multi-company, and multi-plant capabilities give you the flexibility to use this solution no matter what your size or location.
Software is archaic from an architecture standpoint, easily two decade-old technology, the core “radius” product receives few updates but EFI produces “new” products that integrate with the core software and sells it at outrageous prices, rather than including it in the core licensing…great for EFI’s bottom line, horribly expensive for the companies who use this software. Don’t; forget the nearly 20% annual licensing fees to get support and those few core product updates. Absolutely awful ERP option even for print/packaging companies.
Really nothing, obviously there are features specific to print and packaging but this in no way brings the solution back to a positive.
Core Radius product built on decades old technology and architecture, “new” features are not part of core system, they must be licensed as new software with additional ~20% annual maintenance fees, support is poor, software is buggy.
Nothing is streamlined. Whoever created this program seems to need to get themselves in check.
nothing is streamlined.
It performs like any other MRP system but like any other MRP system, they are all built for manufacturing widgets. Although this system claims to be built for the print packaging world, it does not customize very well to more specialized operations.
It tracks a lot of data…almost to a fault. If you like numbers and trends, this is heaven.
Customization to specialized operations would help. Ability to remove much of what I do not use for my business.
Constant disconnect issues. Counting is not accurate. Interface is not very simplified and streamlined . Not a very good system for anyone. You have to go to ten different things to find one thing. Who ever wrote this software is a moron.
