Print providers know that the best way to maximize profitability in this rapidly changing market is automation. That’s why Avanti partners with Enfocus—combining the power of Avanti Slingshot® Print MIS system with the workflow efficiency of Enfocus Switch, to create a seamless end-to-end automation solution.

The bi-directional communication between Avanti Slingshot and Enfocus Switch is fully automated. There are no user touch points and all manual work to enter job and production details is completely eliminated, freeing staff time for more valuable activities and allowing print ops to focus on their customers, shortening turnaround time by moving files immediately to the right place and reducing the potential for errors.
