CaptureLife enhances mobile commerce through a new strategic partnership with Fujifilm
When we designed our mobile experience for consumer’s professional and personal photographs, we focused on consumers need for convenience, desire for digital content, choice and immediacy. Part of our original idea was to satisfy consumers’ desires for having and holding cherished memories of children, family and friends, and all of life’s most important experiences close and at the tap of finger. Right there where they wanted them – on their smartphones.
The rise of mobile commerce
It wasn’t lost on us that the smartphone was also the new mobile portal for commerce. Consumers today are purchasing more and more products and services with those powerful devices right within the palm of their hands. Recent statistics say that 125 million U.S. consumers own smartphones. And 62% of those smartphone users have made a purchase online using their mobile device with the last 6 months.
Knowing that smartphone purchases would only grow, it was clear that mobile commerce needed to be part of the CaptureLife solution. Because of that, we continue to focus on how we can offer more products and the best experience possible.
Unlocking an easy experience for consumers and more revenue opportunities for photographers
