Developing a new, easy to use print-on-demand platform
Lloyd Roden Consultancy uses Printondemand-worldwide for the printing of their teaching materials – and that can mean multiple manuals and books in many different sizes, which need to be updated regularly as syllabuses and courses evolve.
BookVAULT was designed to be used by those looking to print books and materials – from publishers through to training firms. The platform allows individuals to upload books that can then be sent straight to print as and when required – either as single copies or in bulk. The system even allows users to print-on-demand – printing only when an order is placed, to avoid the need for costly stock and warehousing.
We embarked upon updating BookVAULT with new features and functionality in 2019. Our goal was to create an even easier to use platform with tools to make managing a print catalogue stress-free.
Lloyd was on board from the beginning – as one of our valued customers, he provided us feedback at each step of the way.
Lewis Davies, our in-house software developer at Printondemand-worldwide, explained: “When we embarked upon updating BookVAULT, we wanted it to be a customer-led project. Any good software development should be based on user feedback, with the aim of enhancing people’s experience using a platform. Working with Lloyd meant we were able to gather his feedback from the previous iterations of BookVAULT and make sure the new version took all of this on board.”
