With increasing number of customers who are buying products and services online using mobile devices, everything which is on the web needs to be optimized for mobile. To follow the trend Design’N’Buy has upgraded its flagship product All-in-one Designer so that print service providers can now setup fully mobile optimized web to print storefront with quick editor for product personalization.
Offering a full fledge design studio for personalization on mobile devices has been a real challenge for web to print solution providers given the huge libraries consuming all mobile resources and slowing it down as well as challenge of optimizing the studio UI for mobile screen. We compared and analysed various solutions available in the market and came to the conclusion that mere implementing a mobile responsive UI for design studio will not solve the problem of offering a great personalization experience to mobile users given the performance and usability issues. Hence we decided to take a unique route, and thought of offering a convenient and most efficient way of personalizing products to mobile users with only must-have features removing all extras. So that even they can create pixel perfect artwork and order printing products online. The outcome is our light-weight quick editor that allows users to personalize a product by editing all text fields and uploading photos in a simple and efficient way.
The latest version 2.5 of All-in-One Designer now enables printers to setup all sorts products including merchandize, apparel as well as printing products with mobile optimized quick editor for product personalization. With quick editor, customers can edit the product template with convenience without needing to load resource intensive design studio, check live preview and proceed for placing order directly.
