Avanti Slingshot® Print MIS

Purposefully designed and industry recognized

Avanti Slingshot® is seen as the industry’s most open Print MIS, allowing best-in-breed software to come together to form a simplified, highly customizable solution delivering the optimal workflow for a print shop provider. The end-to-end automated integrated solution between Enfocus Switch and Avanti Slingshot® was honoured by the Association for Print Technologies as a Red Hot Technology at PRINT 18, which gives acknowledgement to print communications technology game-changers. 

Communication between Avanti Slingshot® and Enfocus Switch enables fully automated workflow; from job processing, production, and fulfilment through to distribution; eliminating costly, time-consuming manual steps. Users benefit from the strength of the combined solution developed for the purpose of working together for a more stable, powerful, yet flexible workflow.

Integration with Enfocus Switch

Avanti Slingshot sends the job details via JDF, where they are parsed by Enfocus Switch for job processing. When the job has completed processing, Enfocus Switch, sends job production details back to Avanti Slingshot via JDF. The JDF information received from Enfocus Switch then is used to update the status of operations (milestones), create cost entries for labor and material, and adjust inventory for any materials used on the job in Avanti Slingshot in real time.

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.

The integration includes the Enfocus PDF Review module, a simple yet extremely powerful and cost-effective solution for review and approval/rejection of native PDF files.

 In this highly competitive print market, Print Service Providers are looking for every opportunity to profitably grow their lines of business. In response, our partnership with Enfocus and the Avanti Slingshot® integration with Switch 2018 and Enfocus PDF Review module allows customers to realize the financial benefits of end-to-end automation.
