Helping Customers Realize a rapid ROI

Historically, one of the barriers to implementing Print MIS systems has been the amount of effort required to take a new system live. Avanti has invested heavily, as part of the development of Avanti Slingshot, to reduce the level of effort and amount of time required to get the system up and running. In an effort to ensure you are able to bring Avanti Slingshot live as soon as possible, each system ships with a QuickStart Database, an Estimating Standards Library, and migration and import tools, dramatically streamlining the transition from an existing system.

A more detailed look:

Avanti Slingshot was built from the ground up to handle large format, digital, conventional print and fulfillment workflows.

The result of more than 5 years of research and development, this award-winning platform leverages advice from industry thought-leaders, customers of all sizes, and a rich 30+ year history in this specialized market area.

Avanti Slingshot has an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI).  It offers built-in intelligence to guide users through the workflow, presenting information when and where it’s needed.  It’s browser-based, device-independent and database-agnostic, and can be accessed anywhere/anytime. It can be cloud-based or hosted on-premise.

A robust Application Programming Interface (API) and the leveraging of industry-standard protocols like JDF and XML enable communication with key applications, such as web-to-print, pre-press, post-press and production equipment. By communicating with third-party systems and equipment throughout the shop, Avanti Slingshot eliminates costly, time-consuming manual steps.

The structure is scalable and supports companies of all sizes, including multi-company, multi-division, multi-plant and franchise operations. For global clients, it provides localization, with region-specific settings such as date, language, currency, address and phone number.
