Apogee StoreFront

This cloud-based web-to-print solution enables printers and print service providers to efficiently market their products and services. To both existing customers and new markets.

Apogee StoreFront

Overview

Online shoppers are spoiled: web shops offer them what they want 24/7, with a secure payment process and fast delivery times. Print buyers are among them too, and they expect the same service. With Apogee StoreFront you can meet those expectations and offer them even more. For instance, customers can upload or customize their own products, such as business cards and flyers, before sending them to print. Fully designed publications, such as brochures, catalogs, books or posters, can also be added to stores, either as products that are printed on demand or that are delivered from stock. Even non-print products, such as USB-sticks, or digital goods, such as e-books, can be offered as part of the service.

Apogee StoreFront integrates efficiently with your workflow system. You manage all stores from one dashboard, which provides you with instant feedback and status information. This enables you to streamline your processes, without having to invest in additional technology or personnel.

Features

Set up Multiple Stores

Apogee StoreFront allows a print service provider to create multiple storefronts, each of them targeting a specific customer, market or type of product. This makes it a more cost-efficient solution than products that support just one single store. Stores can be private or public.

Powerful Online Editor

With the useful online editor, users can design and edit publications before printing. This comes in handy for business cards, data sheets and newsletters. And of course for entire brochures, catalogs and posters. Even non-print gadgets can be customized, such as a box of pens or t-shirts.

No HTML Experience Required

Apogee StoreFront makes it easy to set up stores without requiring an in-depth knowledge of HTML, programming or scripting. Everyone in your existing staff, from prepress to customer service representatives, can get the hang of Apogee StoreFront.

Various Online Payment Methods

When customers purchase products online, they can pay using a wide range of credit or debit cards, thanks to the integration of a Payment Gateway Service. Payment by check or bank transfer is supported as well.
