Taopix Photobook Modules
The suite is devised of three main modules:
• Taopix Designer: Critical to success is the ability of end-users to easily create a photo book. The design module allows Print Service Providers to create a fully customized and branded customer interface which can be delivered as a download and/or on disk. The drag and drop software encourages customers to create any photo gift product from their Mac or PC anywhere in the world. The admin interface enables features to be turned on and off per application or product, allowing beginners and professionals alike to confidently produce memorable keepsakes.
• Taopix Web: This shopping module allows customers to easily choose and pay for their digital creations. Users are provided with a shopping basket solution which offers a flexible pricing engine with tax, shipping, voucher, discount, and per-page pricing options. It also allows customers to choose preferred payment methods (credit card, account, cheque, PayPal…). Once payment has been made, Taopix Web encrypts the customer file and uploads it securely to the user’s server to be delivered to the production workflow as a print-ready PDF, JPEG, or TIFF.
• Taopix Production: Taopix Production allows printers and pro labs to manage their whole photo book business within one application. Taopix will provide notification of orders and can track job progress from the initial receipt of the customer file and payment confirmation, to printing the final product. Print-ready files are sent to the output device with a fully customizable job tickets, including a barcode for tracking and managing each job. With Taopix Production, you can even track jobs that require multiple output devices and follow the complete production process.
