A centralised web based catalogue of all products including all the details required by management and photographers, along with an integration directly into Dropbox allowing photographers to upload images of up to several hundred megabytes at a time.

All our web based software is developed using 100% open source tools and frameworks, and you will own your own code and be able to take it with you to other developers or host it yourself if preferred.
If you have a business process which you think could benefit from being streamlined, automated or controlled by a fully tailored web based solution then please give us a call.
