Avanti Computer Systems of Toronto has completed CIP4 certification testing to position its Avanti Slingshot MIS platform as an officially JDF-certified product for both MIS to Prepress and Integrated Digital Printing. The company states Slingshot is now the only JDF-certified cloud-based print MIS in the market today.
Avanti Slingshot, built from the ground up as a cloud-based platform, was first launched at Print 13 in Chicago. “The guiding force behind the future direction of Avanti remains an unwavering commitment to provide the best possible service to our clients,” said Patrick Bolan, President and CEO of Avanti, which was founded in 1984. “We are driven by our desire to innovate for our customers, so that they can benefit from information in ways not even imagined.”
CIP4, which stands for the International Cooperation for the Integration of Processes in Prepress, Press, and Postpress Organization, is the not-for-profit standards association that oversees the integrations of third-party machines through the JDF protocol. Avanti’s Slingshot certification was tested by Printing Industries of America (PIA).
“JDF Product Certification allows printers to integrate software and hardware seamlessly into their existing JDF-enabled workflow,” said Dr. Mark Bohan, VP of Technology and Research at PIA. “Recognized for focusing on third-party integration and cloud technology, Avanti has completed many JDF projects, making them one of only a few leading companies in North America with real-world JDF experience.”
