Record growth for Avanti with YTD revenue up 13%
Avanti Computer Systems Limited, an award-winning provider of Print MIS and Web-to-Print solutions, announced strong revenue growth through Q2 2014 with year-to-date revenues up 13.1%.

The company attributes its success in part to the release of its newest cloud-based Print MIS software, Avanti Slingshot. Launched in Q4 2013, Avanti Slingshot, developed for commercial print providers, enterprise/in-plants and franchise operations, has already won the coveted “Must See “em” award at PRINT13.

Long-time Avanti customer, Pazazz, a communications company offering a full range of Cross Media Integrated (CMI) marketing solutions, has just completed their move to the new Avanti Slingshot platform.

“I was impressed with the migration tools that Avanti has developed to streamline the transition from Avanti Classic to Avanti Slingshot”, stated Warren Werbitt, founder and CEO of Pazazz, “The intuitive GUI made it easy for my folks to be productive very quickly.”

Avanti Slingshot incorporates business intelligence (CRM, dashboards and reporting), production planning (estimating, imposition, automated purchasing, sales orders, inventory management and scheduling), warehousing, shipping and billing into one easy-to-use and easy-to-implement system.

The success of Avanti Slingshot has also led to a number of new clients including: The Watkins Printing Company; Colortree Group, Inc.; American Marketing & Mailing Services Inc. (AMMS); and Arizona State University (ASU).

“I am no longer a bottleneck when it comes to estimating”, declared Cathy Skoglund Manager of Operations & Business Development, ASU Print & Imaging Lab. “Because the platform is cloud-based, I have experienced ‘freedom from my desk’, and can easily create estimates while travelling. We can deliver more jobs without hiring more people and know with 100% certainty what our job costs are.”

“We are very encouraged by the extremely positive response that we are getting from the market for Avanti Slingshot”, declared Patrick Bolan, President and CEO, Avanti. “We continue to help printers move beyond print and have developed a platform that can support their multiple lines of business including conventional and digital print, large format, mailing, data management, marketing services and fulfillment.”

Avanti is proud to be celebrating its 30th anniversary in September, 2014 and attributes much of its success to its people, as well as commitment to customers. The company expects to continue its growth trajectory, while delivering innovative MIS solutions, during this significant milestone year.
