Avanti Computer Systems Limited was named Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) 2011 Print MIS Business Partner of the Year for its continued contribution to Xerox, its customers and the printing industry as a whole.

The Xerox Partner Conference is an opportunity for Xerox to recognize the partner community and highlight their partners of the year. With over 100 industry-leading software and hardware providers participating in the Xerox Business Innovation Partner Program, Avanti was honored to receive this recognition in the Print MIS category for the fourth time.
“The running of the print shop has changed dramatically over the years. Ten years ago, a shop would have 10 jobs that had to get out in the next 10 days,” says Stephen McWilliam, EVP of Avanti. “Now they have 10 jobs that need to get out in the next hour! The only way to do that, without throwing people at the problem, is through automation. Xerox customers realize Print MIS plays a key role here.”
The Xerox Business Partner of the Year awards are presented annually by the Xerox Global Business & Strategic Marketing Group, which brings to market the full portfolio of Xerox document solutions, software and systems for production and office environments. The awards honor business partners that contributed most significantly to the business success of Xerox and its customers.
