New subscription-based Avanti Slingshot helps customers deliver high-quality product at lower upfront cost

EXTON, Pa., July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh USA, Inc. today announced a new subscription pricing model for its Avanti Slingshot® Print management information system (MIS) and business workflow management platform. The new model provides customers with a lower cost of entry, providing immediate access to the platform at a significantly lower price and serves as a flexible alternative to traditional financing or leasing. At a time in the market when decisions continue to be accelerated, this subscription option helps businesses grow at a pace that works most effectively for their customers' needs.

Ricoh's Avanti Slingshot offers mid-size and large print service providers the efficiency, control and visibility needed to effectively improve the customer experience.

It's imperative as dedicated partners to our customers that we continue to innovate to meet their needs," said Derrick Rankin, National Director, Professional Services Organization, Ricoh USA, Inc.
