Getting More Done than Ever
Are customers asking for more jobs in less time? Have you recently acquired or merged with another printer? Have you added to your service offerings, such as short-run digital, in order to stay competitive? These are transitions we see with our customers, and each results in more equipment, more processes, and very different workflows. You simply cannot afford to touch a $500 job ten times and expect to make money. As bestselling business author, Brian Tracy, says, “managers today have to do more with less, and get better results from limited resources, more than ever before”.
Islands of Automation: Your customers expect answers quickly, and simply can’t wait for your Sales Rep to check in with her CSR. Unfortunately, in many cases, disparate systems that don’t talk to each other can slow down communication, and your sales team can lose momentum. Additionally, the manual entries required for those Islands to function not only increase turnaround times, but can result in costly errors.
More Orders: “Ten jobs in the next ten days” has been replaced with “ten jobs making their way through the shop in the next hour”. Effectively navigating this new environment is key to success in the business.
More Offerings: The days of having just one or two service offerings are declining. You are expected to provide a dynamic, and ever-growing set of solutions, including large format, shipping and mailing, digital printing, and more. Now, more than ever, it is about offering the “one stop shop” experience – making that level of convenience the ultimate goal. That being said, experience tells many of us that expanding the wallet share of current customers is often much easier than chasing new leads.
Eliminate Islands of Automation: Avanti Slingshot sits in the center of your shop, sending and receiving information from all of the key applications and equipment that you count on to run your operation. This allows you to do more, in less time, with fewer mistakes … all contributing towards increased capacity with no additional equipment or labor investment.
Getting More Done: From Job Tracking to Reporting, Avanti Slingshot helps you manage a more complex offering. Regular reports help you keep your customers in the loop – after all, a more informed customer is a happier customer. Avanti Slingshot can completely model your print-shop regardless of the types of presses, prepress software or finishing activities you offer as value-added services.
End-to-End Solutions: In today’s world of Print-on-Demand and “one stop shop” expectations, business is won and lost based on your ability to exceed customer satisfaction. Avanti Slingshot’s Touchless Workflow enables printers to take on a larger variety of jobs, with fewer resources, while maintaining, and in most cases improving, profitability.
