Module Overview

Production Workflow

3P photo book editorThe workflow starts with the design of a print product through predefined product templates on the client PC, using a downloadable DTP application called the 3P Desktop Publisher, or directly online through the 3P Online Designer. After upload, the consumer is routed to the 3P OpenCart Storefront, where he can overlook his order and  pay via integrated payment provider. This then triggers the production workflow for printing, finishing and delivery in the 3P Backoffice.

The 3P Suite contains all the tools and databases required for a photo lab or print service provider to launch a successful photobook business. Customers have full control over their business models and branding, using well designed content and customer management tools.
