Press release from the issuing company

Toronto, ON November 8th, 2007 - Avanti Computer Systems, a leading provider of Print MIS solutions to the graphic arts industry, used the backdrop of Graphics Canada to, today; launch its new Electronic Scheduling Board (ESB). As a part of Avanti's Finite Scheduling module, the ESB takes their Milestone Scheduling to the next level by providing a real-time graphical view of all jobs currently in production as well as a tool to perform real-time schedule optimization.

Highlights include:
One-button dynamic scheduling for all shop operations
Schedule new jobs automatically based on customer, priorities and dependencies
Perform Load balancing across similar machinery
Easily adjust the schedule with "drag and drop" functionality
Ability to schedule recurring jobs
Allow "on-the-fly" shift additions and changes
