The Client was looking for a web development company to build an online platform for photographers where they would be able to reach customers, exhibit and sell their works.
At the same time, the platform was conceived as a place where common people would be able to read feedback and recommendations, schedule a photoshoot and hire a photographer for any occasion. In addition, the platform was supposed to be enhanced with functionality enabling customers to order pictures in various formats.
With strong attention to detail, SumatoSoft embodied the idea of the Client and developed a comprehensive web platform for photographers and photography-lovers enhanced with a number of features.
Key features implemented by SumatoSoft are the following:
Integration of an external platform to attract photographers who can utilize the service for free for one month and after that choose an appropriate subscription plan and take advantage of Daiokan membership.
