Toronto-based print MIS and web-to-print solutions provider Avanti Computer Systems Ltd. announces a new integration with Solana Beach, CA-based Printable Technologies Inc., a provider of web-to-print and marketing personalization solutions. Avanti’s Print MIS is now integrated with Printable’s MarcomCentral for creating, printing and managing the delivery of static, versioned and variable-data pieces.

“MarcomCentral customers will now have access to Avanti’s JDF-certified, open architecture Print MIS which will better manage and track important customer data and provide more accurate reporting functionality,” says Coleman Kane, CEO and president, Printable Technologies.

The integration will provide print shops with a touchless work environment from job creation and submission through delivery.

“As the Web-to-Print market continues to grow, it is important for Avanti to partner with a market leading technology such as MarcomCentral,” says Patrick Bolan, president, Avanti. “Printers are looking for very tight integration between their customer-facing web-to-print portals and their back-end production environments as they strive to drive down the cost of doing business. This is achieved by eliminating the re-entry of data as a job makes its way through the shop.”

“The integration of Avanti and Printable will bring our shop up to the next level of automation,” comments Blake Leduc, president of Duke Printing in Eastlake, OH. “We can now offer our customers the ability to order, proof and process their print projects quickly and from any location as well as track job status throughout the entire process. This tight integration will save us 10-15 minutes per job - which doesn’t sound like much until you multiply that time savings across the hundreds of jobs we receive over the Web.”
