Program allows app providers to extend their reach and boost convenience with same-day printing
ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kodak Moments, a leading global provider of photo products and services to retailers, consumers, and entertainment properties, is helping app developers tap into new revenue and business models with Kodak Moments Prints. With most U.S. consumers printing photos―and 69 percent* of those preferring to order online―the program gives access to same-day printing at more than 8,000 retail locations nationwide, providing an alternative delivery option in an e-commerce world which is a competitive advantage.
Since 2016, the program has offered third-party photo apps and websites the ability to print to stores through Kodak Moments technology. As consumers demand shorter delivery times, it enables users to convert their photos into prints, gifts and keepsakes which can be ordered and picked up same day at a nearby retail store. Current app participants include: Pictarine, Autopilot Print, MEA Mobile, MailPix, Inc., JPEG Labs and AppGrow.
The program has experienced significant growth with consumer orders and sales, doubling in the past year. Since August 2018, the program has fulfilled more than 2 million orders, with forecasts increasing as more photo products and app partners are added.
“With Kodak Moments Prints, our goal is to help developers and retailers bolster a strong bottom line and improve engagement and loyalty from their customers,” said Michael Graham, Kodak Moments senior product owner. “We’re taking the complexity out of retail photo product fulfillment, extending their reach and increasing their ROI.”
Easy-to-use APIs provide a simple way to implement workflows, including the ability to create orders and to locate participating retailers. Kodak Moments provides a product catalog and media specifications to match each app output to the desired product selections perfectly. Developers receive a revenue share for each sale.
