Most graphic arts shops operate with many islands of automation. Chances are yours does too. What do we mean by that? It’s when certain departments and functions are automated, but they haven’t yet been integrated or linked together to create one seamless communication loopthat exchangesimportantdata.

That’s what a Print MIS system like AvantiSlingshot does. It links those islands of automation so that you can eliminate repetitious tasks, cut down on manual entries, and capture all the data you need at every step of the production chain in order to make intelligent, data-baseddecisions.

We bridge those islands by integrating Slingshot with other software systems from partner companies. Recently we achieved that integration with Enfocus Switch, which automates your PDF workflow.

Here’s what this means for you.

Total integration Slingshot and Enfocus exchange information about job and production details. When a job comes in,Slingshot sendsall relevant details to Enfocus Switch so the job can be processed. Enfocus routes the job through production and once it’s finished, sends data back toSlingshot regarding operations, labor costs, materials used, and so on.Slingshotupdatesall information in real time and makesthe details accessible to other departments.

Total automation The bi-directional communication loop is fully automatedand formsa complete print-production solution.

Less human intervention When you integrate these two powerful engines, you can create a seamless workflow that drastically reducesuser touch point and eliminates the manual work associatedwith entering job specsand production details

Much improved service levels When your staff is freed from manual, repetitive tasks they can spend time on morehigher-value activities, like looking after customers. And faster turnaround times mean happy customers.
