Avanti and BCC Software announce major Print MIS and Postal Software Integration

Toronto-based Avanti, a market leader in Print MIS software, and BCC Software (Rochester, NY), a major provider of comprehensive postal software solutions, have announced the integration of Avanti Slingshot to BCC Software’s popular BCC Mail Manager postal software. The integration will be featured at the upcoming National Postal Forum in San Antonio, Texas and represents “a big step forward in automated workflows for print and mail processing,” said the companies. The two-way integration provides seamless communication of the mailing and production requirements for a job, enabling uninterrupted processing of mail jobs and full palletization support with merge/purge efficiencies. BCC Software Mail Manager Full Service is a USPS CASS/PAVE certified platform that’s fully integrated with Avanti Slingshot’s leading Print MIS software, making it “the best-in-class, end-to-end automated print-to-door solution.”

Patrick Bolan, CEO of Avanti, added: “With so many of Avanti’s customers already relying on BCC Software’s Mail Manager solution, the integration represents an obvious win for customers on Avanti’s platform. BCC Software has been a great partner and I’m excited to launch this integration with them at the National Postal Forum in San Antonio.” For print and mail shops, the integration will eliminate risk and errors that typically result when mailing lists are processed. Postage, reports and production mail files can now be added directly to an Avanti Slingshot Order, ensuring all mission-critical information is centrally located. Business requirements that impact mail sorting rules will be communicated automatically to Avanti Slingshot to create accurte mail-drop and postage information.

“Their open architecture made it intuitive to integrate the application with our innovative software solutions. The resulting workflow is going to be a win-win for our mutual customers.”
