Company Culture Pivots Around Successful MIS Integration

Impulse Graphic & Display Solutions, Mississauga, ON

The Problem

The signage design shop had trouble with accurate estimating. Some jobs they underbid, resulting in profit loss. Others they overbid, leading to a loss of potential business. Some clients received vastly different quotes for similar jobs. After losing a major client, they turned to Avanti.

The Solution

Slingshot’s ability to deliver line-item data in real time made the MIS software’s estimating feature attractive to Impulse GDS. It would mean fewer losses and further predictability.

The Results

Company culture began to change around the new estimating procedures, making the shop team more disciplined and calculative. Errors are less frequent, and morale is up—along with profit margins.

“People often do whatever it takes to get rush jobs out, even if that means at times, cutting corners and skipping data entry. Slingshot’s work templates help them hit those tight deadlines while using consistent procedures to realize the long-term benefits.”

Why Avanti?
