4 easy steps from product personalisation to printing, ordering and sales

cotodesign provides an intuitive customer-facing design, personalise, order workflow for product personalisation. The browser-based software enables customers to easily create original designs using their own photos, images and text on a range of pre-defined products using the cotodesign web application on a tablet or computer terminal in-store or on-site.

The product range and level of personalisation is defined by the retailer or brand owner, tailoring the solution to their individual needs. A simple interface enables store staff to quickly and easily print the customers’ design data on to their chosen product, even without technical knowledge of digital printing. Order status can also be managed centrally for a smooth operation from order receipt to printing and delivery of the personalised product to the customer.

Easy process from ordering to printing

When your customer places their order they receive an order reference number.

The order is managed by cotodesign Print Manager – a software tool which processes the order and automatically sends the design file to the VersaWorks 6 RIP software which processes the file to print on the selected Roland device. You can also easily track the status of the order.

Customised interface for tailored customer experience

The homepage and product shelves on the customer-facing interface can be customised to align with your brand and product range, and to maintain consistency across multiple tablets for a unified customer experience. The screen saver can also be customised for use as a digital signage tool to promote campaigns or events when not in use.
