Dianne, who is responsible for global sales at Taopix, spoke to us live from Graph Expo, Chicago, where Taopix Version 5 and Taopix Mobile (both set to launch later this quarter) is being previewed in the States.
So Dianne, tell us what we can expect for the unveiling of Taopix Version 5 in the UK?
Taopix are honoured to have been invited to exhibit at Duplo's London Calling Without Limits event from the 15th – 16th October, at East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf and that's where we'll be unveiling Taopix Version 5 with Taopix available on mobile for the first time to a UK audience. We're looking forward to bringing V5 to the UK and we couldn't think of a better event and better timing within which to do it than at London Calling.'
Tell us more about what we can expect from Taopix Version 5 and Taopix Mobile?
'As our CEO, James Gray, confirmed at Photokina, we will be launching Version 5 of our popular photo gift platform across our HTML5 and download applications this quarter. Taopix Online, Mobile and Desktop packages will be available for demo for the first time in the UK at the London Calling event. Taopix Online will include Taopix Mobile, a new mobile web optimised designer application, which comes with our HTML5 based designer application.
We've looked to make a number of new features and enhancements across both our Online and Desktop applications to ensure that we're adding real value which can directly impact our customers' bottom line. For both Taopix Online and the launch of new Taopix Mobile, we have looked at how consumers want to create and buy single prints, quick books, ready books and simple photo gifts on their tablet and mobile devices and ensured that they are able to do this in as few clicks as possible. For any business using the Taopix platform this means they can offer their customers a choice of products across a range of devices. With our flexible wizard tools our customers can create a product once and set it up for Taopix Online, Mobile and even Desktop in a few quick clicks. In addition to this we’ve ensured we include powerful upsell tools across the whole platform. We'll even be showcasing some brand new photobook and gift design templates from their new in-house design team too! '
Can you tell us more about London Calling Without Limits?
'We've been partners with Duplo for some time now and we were thrilled to be invited. The fact that London Calling is designed to inspire businesses and spark ideas on creating new revenue streams couldn’t be a better fit for us and our customers – businesses from the world of print and photo. That’s exactly how we approached the development of Taopix Version 5!
As well as showcasing our latest platforms and content, we’ll be looking to inspire printers to look at new ways of making revenue, such as offering photo gifts on mobile or leveraging partnerships with brands and other companies to produce personalised photo products for new audiences.’
Thanks Di! Enjoy Graph Expo!
In addition to an exclusive demonstration of the latest Taopix software, visitors to the show will be able to see live photobook production between the Taopix platform and print production hardware from fellow exhibitors LumeJet and on Konica Minolta via UK print provider, Balreed.
