Another major step forward: Earlier this week all THP members’ websites were updated with a new search engine whose enhanced functionality brings modern formats, speed, reliability and new features to the leading front.
Moving hand in hand with developments in technology, the business model of the stock photography industry has been changing constantly and dramatically in the past years, both in regards to agencies’ administrative needs as well as the clients’ approach to licensing images. Recognizing and incorporating these changes, our in-house THP designers and programmers have been working on the new customer-focused design functionality for the last year. This long term development plan has included the creation and live-testing of new modules in order to incorporate the valued advice and feedback given by THP agents and their clients.
Some highlights are:
Extensive search engine filters
An expanded Search Engine section allows you to find results faster and more easily by applying flexible filters from a range of popular terms and categories.
Easy access to new offers
As well as RM and RF images, Low Budget Images and Video, new offers such as Vectors and Celebrities are now featured.
A complete renovation: the front end is now more contemporary, stylish, and more intuitive with responsive navigation and design. In a clear layout, visual tags and icons help the client to easily recognize licenses and grouped collections.
Catering to agents’ individual needs
The ability to adjust colours to those prevalent in agents’ websites, as well as the offer to cover specific wishes or add different or additional functionalities.
Drag and drop items
An item drag and drop function enables the smooth addition of items to both light boxes and shopping carts.
Enhanced item preview
The new “Item preview” window offers detailed information and the ability to navigate throughout items in the search results while maintaining the original search results in the background.
We trust that this enhanced search engine will assist agents in getting good results in day to day business. As we continue to make a strenuous effort to blend modern methods and procedures in the THP system, renovations on the Agents Members Area/Backend are now being made, which will bring the entire THP platform to a high aligned level of modernity and functionality.
