Avanti (Booth 4242) is demonstrating Avanti Slingshot, the next generation Print MIS (Management Information System). It incorporates business intelligence (CRM, dashboards, alerts and reporting), production planning (automated imposition, job ticketing, purchasing, and scheduling), Order Management (Order specification and asset management), fulfillment, shipping and billing into one easy-to-use, modular and scalable system. Avanti Slingshot isn’t just a new version of a current product. It was built from the ground up to handle large format, digital and conventional print, mail management and fulfillment workflows.
Avanti Slingshot has an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and offers built-in intelligence to guide users through the workflow, presenting information when and where it’s needed. It’s browser-based and device-independent, providing anytime/anywhere access. Avanti Slingshot 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.
Avanti Slingshot 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.
