Large In-Plant Selects EFI Digital StoreFront

EFI announced that DLA Document Services (formerly DAPS), part of the United States Department of Defense and the Defense Logistics Agency, has selected EFI Digital StoreFront (DSF) as the Web-to-Print platform for its more than 150 locations in the U.S. and abroad.

DLA Document Services is replacing its home grown custom solution, which has been in use for 11 years. The contract for the first year is $2.4 million.

“DLA Document Services did a thorough evaluation and we’re proud they chose EFI Digital Storefront. This award demonstrates yet again that for any large scale Web-to-Print deployment, there is really just one option on the market and that is Digital StoreFront,” says Marc Olin, Senior Vice President and General Manager of APPS, EFI. “We look forward to quickly deploying the system so DLA’s 1,000 employees can reap the benefits as soon as possible.”

Digital StoreFront is designed to deliver a branded and customized website to print provider clients for simple job submission, pricelist-based orders, complex specification-based quotes and orders, job, job history, and invoice management. DSF supports personalized campaigns (VDP), file delivery and custom catalogs—helping print providers to build strong, profitable, and long-term relationships with their customers. Digital StoreFront can be hosted by EFI or the print service provider and is available with integration to EFI PrintSmith, EFI Pace, EFI Monarch, and EFI Radius print MIS solutions.

Print and e-commerce industry consultant Jennifer Matt was a key partner to EFI on this project, and she is expected to be integral to the deployment phase.
