Avanti Slingshot® Mobile App
Finally! Data entry processes for warehouse management are no longer confined to a desktop. They are implemented in the warehouse with the addition of mobile devices, including mobile computers, smartphones, and tablets, which serve as data entry points to report back to the Avanti Slingshot Inventory and Fulfillment modules.
Gain business-wide traceability, employee accountability and real-time speed and responsiveness using your mobile device. Transition from pen and paper to a digital environment that does away with the re-keying of data and possibility of human entry error. Combined with Avanti Slingshot Inventory management and Fulfillment, the Avanti mobile app helps to speed fulfillment time, increase inventory accuracy, improve customer service, expand warehouse productivity and ultimately, reduce labor costs.
Avanti’s mobile application can be installed on any device running on Android or iOS, using the device’s wireless network connection to connect directly to your Avanti Slingshot system.

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.
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.
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.”
