Planning service
How the planning service works
CDS provides access to an end-to-end service for mobilising our cloud based web2print solution. Services include consultancy, requirements analysis, design of artwork, workflow design, template build and configuration, training, hosting and ongoing support.
As part of the onboarding process, we would identify the required templates, the functional requirements and workflow approval process. We would also seek a copy of the customer’s brand guidelines at this stage to familiarise ourselves with the components of the brand e.g colour palette, imagery, fonts and how these should work together to create the online templates.
After gathering the functional requirements, our team of professional graphic designers would then create the template artwork in InDesign, prior to passing the artwork to our development team who will build and programme the required functionality.
