Avanti reports strong first-quarter growth

avantiq1growth-inAvanti Computer Systems’ strong customer growth in the first quarter of its 2015 fiscal year saw new customers in both in-plant and commercial print added. The Canadian Print MIS leader welcomed ADR Inc., Joseph Merritt & Company, Talient Action Group (TAG) and Accu-print. Avanti also announced that PMI Printing and Marketing of Union City, California went live with Avanti Slingshot.

“We’re thrilled with how quickly we were able to transition to Avanti Slingshot and integrate it with our various external systems,” said Armando Pena, COO, PMI. “We have already begun to see the positive impact on 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 – all dramatically streamlining the transition from an existing system.

“Avanti Slingshot is well-positioned as a leading product in the Print MIS Industry,” added Patrick Bolan, President and CEO of Avanti. “After launching it 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.”
