How to automate your media workflow to accelerate your time-to-market


In today's digital age, businesses need to produce, manage, and distribute high-quality product images to enhance their online presence and improve the customer experience. Solutions like Grand Shooting, Keepeek, and TwicPics help streamline the process, automate production, and deliver an optimized shopping experience for all users.

PRODUCE: From the photo studio to the DAM

Operational excellence in content production

Shooting rates are high and expectations for image quality and style are even higher. However, the challenge arises when the latest product references that need to be photographed are only made known at the last minute. To ensure the utmost quality and speedy execution, Grand Shooting is seamlessly integrated into retailers' information systems. This integration allows for real-time analysis of data related to product references, expected views, and activity monitoring. Additionally, this approach helps to detect oversights, delays, or any deviation from internal workflows.

STORE & MANAGE: From the DAM to distribution

Enhanced media assets for the entire ecosystem

For most e-commerce companies, the products they sell online are accompanied by a batch of images typically created in a studio (including packshots, atmospheric shots, and variations). These images must be linked to product data and transformed into different formats to suit various distribution channels such as mobile applications, e-commerce sites, and social media platforms. Sometimes, dedicated internal or external teams must even retouch these images. Given that media is at the core of the customer experience, it's essential to provide numerous high-quality images while minimizing the time spent processing them to ensure the products are online as quickly as possible. The primary objective of using Keepeek is to streamline the management of product media, automate the production process, and facilitate the distribution of product data and media.

DELIVER: From the DAM to the end-buyer

Optimized shopping experience for all users

By analyzing users' navigation characteristics, such as their browsing context (including device, browser, screen quality, and connection), and understanding the artistic direction of the page, TwicPics' solution resizes and adapts media in real-time to meet their needs.

This customization process ensures optimal visual quality and display speed for all users, making it an essential prerequisite for e-commerce stores and websites.

3 technical solutions to address organizational issues and achieve business objectives

The media value chain is optimized from end to end, from the creation of assets to their distribution on the web.

In traditional organizations, media are controlled and contributed manually, and the quality of visuals is often limited to reduce the weight that can impact page loading times and user experience.

Grand Shooting and Keepeek solutions digitize and automate the process to accelerate time-to-market while reducing production costs by up to 40% while TwicPics eliminates weight limitations for contributions from Grand Shooting by dividing the image weight by at least 2 while ensuring optimal asset quality on all screens, including Retina ones.

By combining the three solutions, teams can photograph products, retouch images, organize and enrich content, and deliver assets to the site in under 24 hours. This customized and automated media management process improves the user experience both in terms of content processing and the visual quality of the assets. It also frees up teams from time-consuming creation, management, and distribution tasks, enabling them to focus on more valuable tasks.
