Today Sprout Studio, the all-in-one photography management software, released a major update focusing on the experience your clients have with your business. Starting with an already stellar platform and client experience, this release aims to make all of the interactions your client has with your business as intuitive and natural as possible. “Your clients are everything. They are at the core of your business. And Sprout Studio v1.5 is all about your clients.”
A client can have many Leads, many Shoots, and many Orders. And at the core of it all is your Client, because that’s how it works in real life! One of your past brides may inquire to book a maternity session and order a book. She may have had an engagement session with a print order. She has her wedding package and all the details for her wedding. It’s all connected to the bride – the person. Now, when she visits her Client Portal in Sprout Studio, she can see her entire photographic experience with you – past and present. She can easily navigate around and reference everything. While she’s browsing her Gallery, she can look at her contract. When she’s reviewing an Album Proof, she can view her Gallery. When she books her Maternity session with you, she can go back and recall all the details from her Wedding. It’s all in one place. You keep her organized, so you’re the hero.
Sprout Studio v1.5 also comes with a host of updates for the business end of things, including built-in slideshows for client photo galleries, reorganization of data to be client-centric across multiple shoots, and a bevvy of performance enhancements to make the Sprout Studio experience even more speedy and intuitive.
I’ve personally been using Sprout Studio for over a year now and can honestly say that it has fundamentally improved my business. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Sprout Studio, head over to http://getsproutstudio.com where you can sign up for a free 21 day trial.
