PHOTO ALBUMS BY LABLIAB
Labilab is a printing company specialized offset, digital and plotter printing. The brand, having unique printing machines on a national scale, decided to expand its range of personalized products. In addition to standard printed materials such as leaflets or folders, Labilab also wanted to enter the retail market, expanding its offer with photo books, albums and other personalized products. At the time of establishing cooperation, the company had a website and a mobile application. However, they did not meet the business objectives set by the company’s owners.
The most important goal set by Labilab was to simplify the handling of album and photobook orders within 3 months - the customer wanted to have a working product before Christmas. The existing solutions were not stable, and the manner of their service deviated from the standards adopted in e-commerce solutions. During the workshops, we agreed that the key element would be reorganizing the admin panel, thereby simplifying the order management procedure. In addition, the possibility of establishing cooperation with influencers whose task would be to promote the brand on the Internet was set as an additional goal. From our point of view, it was also important to significantly improve the design of the site, because the previous version was based on bootstrap 3 components and therefore did not stand out completely from the competition.
After analyzing the existing solution, we defined the main tasks to be implemented in the first three months of the project. We decided that the key would be to design new website design and rewrite all components again so that it would be possible to automate process orders on the administrative side.
The challenge, although not easy, was realized successfully and the potential customer had the option of ordering products at the end of November.
After refining the web version, in January 2020 it was time to implement mobile applications for iOS and Android. We decided to use hybrid tools due to short deadlines for development and the need to run fully functioning applications. After this stage, support service is being implemented to this day, under which we are constantly adding new functionalities.
As part of the implementation, we have prepared a number of dedicated modules using the languages PHP (Symfony), JS (Vue), Kotlin and Swift, which include:
The administrator can define his own product groups and products assigned to them. On the user side, it is possible to create a photo product by bulk upload of photos, the ability to choose photos from albums in social media, advanced cropping and ordering.
The administrator has the ability to fully manage users divided into specific roles. Within the module it is possible to verify electronically generated contracts, view the turnover generated by customers, order history or commission table for traders.
As part of this module, registration and login has been prepared, thanks to wh
The mobile application has exactly the same functionalities that the web version is equipped with. It is available for both smartphones equipped with iOS and Android.
