PRESS RELEASE: Woodman's Markets Partners with LifePics for Digital Imaging Services
Boulder, CO, April 18, 2006 - LifePics today announced that it is now the digital imaging services provider for Woodman's Markets, a major food retailer based in Janesville, WI. Woodman's will use the LifePics online imaging solution to allow its customers to upload digital photos and pick up prints in an hour at eleven stores across Wisconsin and Illinois. Woodman's will also offer a variety of other photo related products and services including photo sharing, holiday cards, photo gifts, online photo preservation, and much more. Woodman's will use LifePics' LabCenter lab software to send orders directly to their high-end Fuji Frontier photo labs at each store.
"While we have been offering an online service for a while, we realized that we needed to upgrade to 1-hour service directly to the store and offer a more robust and comprehensive solution to maintain our competitive edge," said Larry Nitz, Photo Category Manager at Woodman's. "LifePics allows us to send orders directly to each of our stores while at the same time allowing us to sell high margin products like photo templates and photo related gifts."
"Woodman's focus on 1-hour service was an excellent fit for us because we excel at driving orders directly to a retailer's storefront," said Vahe Christianian, V.P. of Sales and Business Development at LifePics. "They are an exciting customer because they have a large, dedicated customer base and multiple, high capacity Fuji Frontier labs at each store."
LifePics offers the most complete online imaging solutions for photofinishers and professional photographers. Using LifePics' technology, photofinishers and professional photographers are able to accept orders from consumers via the Internet and send those orders directly to a photofinishing lab that is most convenient to the consumer. LifePics allows consumers to pick up their prints at over 2,200 locations across the U.S. and Canada. LifePics' customers range from mass merchants and large food and drug chains to local camera shops and independent photofinishers.
