Agfa Graphics has launched Version 1.3 of :Apogee StoreFront, which is a cloud-based application enabling print service providers to set up Web stores. The new version features additional creative control over the look of online shops and includes the ability to create what Agfa describes as microstores.
“Many of our :Apogee StoreFront users sell printed products to a multitude of businesses that order a fairly limited set of products on a regular basis,” explained Andy Grant, Global Director of Software, Agfa Graphics. “Microstores help to easily target that market. A microstore inherits most of its settings from a template store. But each microstore has its own unique URL and a well-defined product range for specific print buyers.”
New features of :Apogee StoreFront 1.3 also include support for real-time UPS shipping cost quotes, alarm levels for stock products (near end of stock, for example), and an image library that can be shared across all the customizable documents in the store.
:Apogee StoreFront integrates with the :Apogee 8 workflow, while :Apogee Prepress downloads orders from the Web-to-print system and processes those automatically. For jobs that will be printed on a toner press or wide format device, :Apogee now has the ability to generate a press operator job summary.
