Currie Group has been recently accredited as the first EFI Fiery® for Display Graphics Premier Partner in the region. Further strengthening the partnership between EFI and Currie Group, this program ultimately benefits the wide format customer base by way of additional support and expertise.
As a Fiery for Display Graphics Premier Partner, Currie Group are now listed on EFI’s website so customers can easily locate us. Just select our region to see us there. As part of the program, Currie Group were required to complete sales and technical training for the entire line-up of Fiery display graphics products.
The portfolio has grown beyond the EFI Fiery XF and Fiery proServer itself. There is a complete suite of software solutions that will make customers more efficient, including Fiery JobFlowTM for prepress automation, Fiery Prep-ItTM for true shape nesting, and Fiery IQTM for display graphics that will help you better manage your fleet, even across multiple locations, by providing real-time operational data via the cloud.
Chris Schowalter, Global Sales Director - Fiery for Display Graphics said, “We are very proud to have Currie Group joining the Premier Partner program. They quickly met all our criteria achieving the highest-level accreditation for Fiery Display Graphics Products. They are a trusted partner and doing a great job supporting all our customers in the region. Now our partnership is even stronger, and we can together keep our customers happy and loyal.”
Paul Whitehead, Currie Group Business Unit Manager – Sign & Display said, “Currie Group is committed to becoming the leading supplier in both the Australian & New Zealand Sign & Display markets. EFI hardware was only the first step, and now we are excited to add the Fiery for Display Graphics software to our portfolio.
Becoming an accredited Fiery Display Graphics Premier Partner ensures we can support both our EFI customers to a greater level, whilst also providing a full suite of workflow support to customers that utilise printers from other manufacturers.”
Various components of the Fiery for Display Graphics software suite:
Fiery XF 7
Fiery XF7 is the easiest way to achieve superior colour results, gain maximum productivity and profit from business insights with EFI Fiery Command WorkStation digital print job management. It is a workflow solution that caters to different job types and makes it easy to automate repeat jobs and repetitive tasks.
Fiery Prep-It is a print-for-cut preparation software. It’s an easy-to-use solution for the preparation, layout and automated production of print-for-cut jobs – which is likely most of the jobs our customers are producing! It can save them hours of prepress time and dramatically decrease media usage with efficient true shape nesting, as you can see from the graphic below.
Alternative means of true shape nesting either involve longer preparation times or excessive use of media or both, when compared to Fiery Prep-It.
Fiery JobFlow automates job preparation steps in prepress workflows to produce ready-to-print files. This easy-to-use print workflow automation software increases productivity and reduces costs. With its easy-to- build workflows, users can use it for automated image enhancement and automation, file submission and archiving, integration with other workflows for intelligent job routing and much more. The JobFlow mantra is “Don’t touch what you can automate.”

Is there a disruption in my shop I need to know about?
How well are my printers being utilised?
By gaining real time access to the answers to these questions and more, owners and managers can quickly adapt to get things back on track, whether it needs additional operator training, better inventory management, scaling up production capacity, or any other action to ensure a smooth and profitable operation.
