Photobook Worldwide was looking for a comprehensive solution to cater for its complex needs across multiple product ranges and markets.

Key challenges & Solutions
Over 150 product types, high volume sales
A very large number of product categories meant that Photobook Worldwide had loads of work with its product configuration. Printbox’s backend admin panel came to the rescue. It turned out that many tasks can be optimized because Printbox’s product administration made them easier.
One of Photobook Worldwide’s favourite Printbox features is the ability to update massive amounts of prices using a CSV file because it saves loads of time and resources. The company is able to very easily add new templates and skins or change attributes.
Additionally, Photobook Worldwide can launch new products much faster and reconfigure existing products in a much simpler way. Most activities can be done without any involvement from technical teams.
The hybrid model
With the organization that big you can expect a very complex software ecosystem. There are parts of the business where Photobook Worldwide wanted to stick to the software they already had. Printbox’s task was not only to implement one of its core modules, the Advanced Editor into an existing e-commerce platform. It had to also make sure that whatever Photobook Worldwide wanted to integrate – it would be done neatly.
Photobook Worldwide developed a powerful mobile app and found a way to integrate certain back end functionalities with Printbox to further improve the app’s performance and enhance their customer’s experience. Photobook Worldwide’s team recognizes how very responsive and technically skilled the Printbox team is to make sure that the flexible, hybrid model works very smoothly.
Improved customer flow
Before Printbox, Photobook Worldwide had only one editor at its disposal. This meant that users who wanted to buy only a simple product had to deal with an editor that’s too complicated for their needs. Printbox brought three distinct editors to the table: Advanced for products involving a lot of work, Simple editor for single image products and other simple products and lastly Prints for prints. What is more, the editors can be placed at the end of different customizable buying paths.
Photobook Worldwide can now easily add or delete steps within a buying path. WYSIWYG static landing pages eliminate a lot of development work. Printbox’s component features allow employees to easily modify steps, and open architecture lets the Printbox team add new components easily. Photobook Worldwide now has a customer journey much more accustomed to their users’ needs.
Printbox’s modern technology completely reinvented the UI/UX of Photobook Worldwide websites. Additionally, Photobook Worldwide can now launch and reconfigure products very quickly and easily at high productivity, translating to less technical implementation and involvement. Thanks to Printbox’s Responsive Web Design, users are served the best possible experience no matter what device they’re on.
