Taopix updates photo commerce software

Taopix is updating its photo book software, having released beta versions to early adopters, with the final release due in late August.

James Gray, Taopix CEO

The Taopix software is widely used by commercial printers to allow their customers to design photobooks online so that the resultant book can be printed. There are several versions. The Taopix Desktop Designer has gained a new shopping cart to make it easier for customers to order multiple products in one transaction, which should obviously help the licensees earn more. Those users will now  also be able to view live pricing and customised disclaimers in the Designer window as well as in the product selector and shopping cart.

There are also new options for the Taopix Online Designer, including a new Zoom tool for the Quick Designer and the ability for customers to rotate a picture independently of the picture box. It’s also possible now for the Taopix licensees to link their in the Designer window back to a set webpage. Also, those licensees can now offer similar specification photo books with multiple page counts by creating one template and adding different page count configurations through the  settings in the product URL.

Taopix has also improved its ‘Send to a Friend’ feature so that it gives a more realistic and interactive experience to help encourage further sales.

James Gray, Taopix CEO, commented: “We’re excited to bring another new release to the market. As always, the features and enhancements that we deliver are determined by our customers and the markets they operate in. It’s important for us to concentrate on what ultimately makes our customers more successful which is why they play such an important role in our product roadmap. It works both ways; if they’re successful then we’re also successful.”
