Avanti Reports Strong Customer Growth, Wide Adoption of Slingshot MIS Platform in Q1 2015
TORONTO—January 22, 2015—Avanti Computer Systems Limited, a leading provider of Print MIS solutions, today announced strong customer growth in the first quarter of its 2015 fiscal year. As it continues its growth curve, the company is pleased to announce new customers in both the In-Plant and Commercial print markets.
For printers to compete, they require instantaneous access to all aspects of a job as it moves through the shop, while eliminating breaks in the workflow. When integrated with the various systems within a production environment, and the appropriate external systems, a print MIS can provide efficiency to a printer by identifying key information such as workflow bottlenecks, and by streamlining tasks such as job estimating and scheduling, all of which can save money.
Avanti is excited to welcome the following new customers: ADR Inc.; Joseph Merritt & Co.; Talient Action Group (TAG); and Accu-print.
Additionally, Avanti announced that PMI Printing and Marketing of Union City, CA, went live with Avanti Slingshot.
"We are thrilled with how quickly we were able to transition to Avanti Slingshot and integrate it with our various external systems," stated Armando Pena, COO, PMI. "We have already begun to see the positive impact to our CSRs, who can now focus on actual customer service and follow-up, instead of spending time on order input."
In an effort to bring Avanti Slingshot live as quickly 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.
"Avanti Slingshot is well-positioned as a leading product in the Print MIS Industry," said Patrick Bolan, president and CEO of Avanti. "After launching just over a year ago, the positive feedback that we’re getting from customers, many of whom were replacing existing legacy Print MIS solutions, validates our decision to build this cloud-based solution from the ground up."
