First, we provided the client with a project coordinator, who helped them understand how their system works right now and what they can do to make it according to their business needs.
We then build a frame preview for them. It allows the viewer to see images in a frame. Photographers can adjust their pictures on the frame with the right sizes, style and presentation. We added system configurations such as ;
• Check out process
• Custom edits of frames and images
• Third Party Integration
Photographers take pictures from professional cameras such as DSLRs and the images are in “RAW” format (.NEF, .CR2, .CR3, etc.). So, we configured third party integration in their system that allowed the selected images and frames to be sent to a vendor “NorthWest Framing” directly from the website, this doesn’t compromise the image quality. The vendor would then print, frame, and ship the completed job order to the customer.
The client was satisfied with the solution that was provided. We’ve now started working on Phase-2 which focuses on wall arrangements. Initially, the client started with a Fixed Price Model but they’ve opted for our Team Augmentation Mode.
Our primary focus with Framesuite for now is the addition of “wall arrangements” functionality. Future plans are usually derived by clients and customer needs which unfold as and when new business requirements arise. With this business model, many new possibilities could appear in the new future where people are looking for convenience services more and more everyday.
