Original Press Release:
The W2P Online Shop Solution for LFP Printing Service Providers
The new powerful CG Web to Print (W2P) Webgate Edition of ColorGATE enables a fast, cost-efficient and very simple entry into B2C online business for large and wide format printing service providers. Joomla! and JoomShopping-technology-based Webgate online shop is easy to administrate and provides a broad range of products including banners, displays, roll-ups, pop-ups, framed canvas prints etc. Outstanding highlights are the integrated SEO support and standard connection to Fotolia image database. Once purchased, there are no further costs for Webgate Edition (except the ongoing costs for hosting the online shop), making it possible to easily calculate the payback period even before investment.
Like any other CG Web to Print solution of ColorGATE, Webgate offers:
Webgate can be extended by versatile additional modules, e.g. Walldesigner for wall papers, export for MIS systems via CSV or XML, function for optimal alignment of business cards, catalogues etc.), and integrates seamlessly with Productionserver 7.
Both the front-end and the back-end of Webgate have a well-arranged, intuitive, Flash-based user interface. The front-end provides professional design tools including a broad range of tools for sophisticated and attractive designs and layouts (image and text elements, vector graphics/clip arts). Via a gradual approach, customers are guided through the design and ordering process and can see online in advance, how the finished product will look like. A 5-star display informs customers about the print quality and if it is adequate for printing. The standard connection to Fotolia image database provides a large number of images, but also own final print data can be uploaded easily.
In the clearly-structured back-end, customers can generate printable files (PDF/X3-Daten), manage purchase orders and the internal image database. The back-end provides an order history and even LFP-specific product characteristics will be taken into account.
