FUJIFILM Holdings Australasia Director, Dave Marshall, said Whitech’s suite of Photo.Teller™ software is marketed with FUJIFILM’s Digital Photo Centre (DPC) kiosks which are now one of the most popular methods consumers use to order photographs in Australian retail stores. “Incorporating Whitech software with FUJIFILM’s DPC kiosks has enabled consumers to edit images for immediate in-store printing and to also order such photo gifting products as fully-bound hard or soft cover Photo Books, Story Books, large canvas prints, personalised stationery, calendars, key rings, mugs, t-shirts and much more,” Mr Marshall said. “Whitech kiosk software can also be customised for each retailer’s needs to accommodate all workflow management and output capabilities. “The popularity of photo gifting in Australia is expected to follow US trends where this segment of the market is fast approaching a billion dollar industry, with sales expected to double in the next two years.” Mr Marshall said FUJIFILM has had a strong business relationship with Whitech, and the acquisition of an equity interest in Whitech was a natural progression for both organisations. …2/… Whitech Software Solutions Managing Director and Founder, Steve Delnawaz, said FUJIFILM’s proposed investment in Whitech Pty Ltd indicates the commitment by both organisations to provide a sophisticated fulfilment solution for retailers as well as a convenient and user-friendly selection of print ordering and photo-gifting solutions for consumers. “Whitech’s award-winning software solutions have been an instrumental facilitator in the transformation of the photographic retail industry. “Since 2003, Whitech has collectively won nine awards for its innovative software solutions and its creative business and marketing solutions,” Mr Delnawaz said.
