Leveraging Automation to Maximize Workflow – Webinars You Might Have Missed
If your goal is to onboard more jobs, increase productivity, eliminate touchpoints and improve your shop’s bottom line, workflow automation software will help you consolidate and manage all of your company’s information in one spot..
There are a multitude of reasons business owners, like you, are researching print MIS platforms, such as ongoing support issues with their home-grown solutions or their current software is no longer being developed or supported. Maybe you’re producing twice as many jobs as you did two years ago, but revenue remains flat.
Avanti Systems, the industry leader in print management software for 36 years, recently held two on-demand webinars.
The first, A Day in the Life of the Automated Print Shop, features several common use case examples to demonstrate how automation can take your business from its present-day state to its desired state. The other, Overcoming Large-Format Challenges, shows how modern and reliable technology easily tackles the unique requirements and common challenges associated with wide and grand-format printers.

Need for Automation
A Day in the Life of the Automated Print Shop is an overview of how workflow automation software allows for real-time job tracking and the ability to scale your business and grow without adding resources. Topics include:
- Breakpoints in workflow – configurations that enable users to complete a wide array of job tasks in one module.
- Web-to-print integration – store fronts that build out production logic and offer customized options.
- Software integration – the ability to connect to third-party vendors such as Prepress applications.
- JDF certified equipment – the benefits of integrating with any JDF initialed system.
Big Print Jobs = Bigger Challenges
When it comes to large, wide and grand-format printing, every job seems to be a “rush order.” Most often, the shop that can submit a quote and deliver the fastest results will be awarded the business which means there’s no time for exhaustive manual input of data or to chase down inventory.
Avanti’s Overcoming Large-Format Challenges webinar details step by step how automation control can expedite your shop’s processes beginning with job estimation all the way through purchasing via one comprehensive management platform.

Each day in the grand-format space feels like a race against time. Employees are typically reactionary, dealing with whatever rushed assignment comes through the door. Nonstop deadlines provide little time to plan the actual jobs. This webinar highlights ways in which a print MIS can more efficiently get jobs out and bring money in including:
- Quick and accurate estimates
- Fast order entry
- Exceptional inventory visibility
- Resource scheduling
- Job cost capture
- Instant production status
- Streamlined invoicing and billing
If you’re still contemplating whether to enter into the wide and large-format printing market, it is a significant investment and can be a daunting decision. To come out of the gate strong, you’ll need a partner that can not only handle the challenges that come with ‘big’ printing but offer valuable insight about the best ways to get started and grow your new line of business for optimal return on investment.
