In this case, Anja wanted to create a web portfolio and shop where she would be able to make some of her artworks and patches available for national and international sales.
She also had a specific request for a commissions booking platform which would automate as many portions of her current manual process as possible. This included getting the brief, getting references, making sure the references were correct, confirming artwork titles, deadlines, correct postal addresses, social media handles for posting, posting deadlines, quoting, invoicing, processing payments, following up payment, framing, delivery/collection or shipping and then confirmation that the artwork had actually been delivered.
We delivered a system where this is all automated. The brief is only sent to her once all the correct information has been gathered, payment has been made and confirmed, references have been received and checked. The only thing left for her to do is to create the artwork and sign it. Once she has completed the artwork she delivers it to us or we collect from her. We then package the artwork and send it via a priority door-to-door service that arrives the next day before 10:30 am in South Africa for the same price (if not less) than the post office.
