Diland Photo Kiosk Software

New Diland software update

You and your customers get to enjoy greater convenience and peace of mind with a new Diland software update.

This week Diland has released a software update which has been automatically made available to all stores already running Photo Direct’s, Diland software. Here’s what you need to know.

New Diland software update – Periodic saving of creative orders

As a retailer you want to take every precaution against computer hiccups occurring when a customer has just finished or is most of the way through creating their masterpiece. And as you know Diland software enables a customer to create a photo book very quickly, but there are always some customers who like to spend hours extensively customising their book. With this new Diland software update, saving will start the moment a customer enters the edit page.

The new Diland software update now ensures that as soon as the customer has entered an edit page, periodic saves take place and those backup temporary orders will be available to your lab operator for 12 hours after the order is actually finalised and sent to print. That means maximum peace of mind for your lab operator and the customer.

New Diland software update – CMYK images are loaded and converted to RGB

As you’d expect Diland software accepts a kiosk customer’s images whether they are in RGB or CMYK formats or from various digital sources such as memory cards, CDs, DVDs, USB drives, mobile phones with bluetooth, iPads/iPhones and local folders – as well as social networks like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

There is no maximum image size that a kiosk user can use, and no maximum on the number of images a customer can load, unless you choose to place a limit. This ensures that if your hardware can accept those sources and file sizes, then you need not worry about the software’s ability to manage this issue. Better still, Diland’s versatility extends even further because it can run on a variety of Windows operating systems including XP, Vista, 7 and 8 – 32 and 64 bit.

Promote photo book and calendar sales with confidence

With the new Diland software update there’s even more reasons to promote sales of customised products like photo book or calendars to your customers. Diland Photo Kiosk Software lets you totally personalise the experience for your customers. For example you can customise:

  • your screen savers
  • the products you offer
  • your prices
  • your service times
  • what your products are called
  • the order in which they appear on the kiosk screen.
  • the images used to depict those products so they become unique to your business

Best of all Diland software lets you produce almost anything you want to make in store. If there is some thing you want to offer, but not make in store, it can be sent to hot folders for sending on to your external provider. Diland software is definitely in a class of its own so to learn more click here.
