Why launch it now?

Good product imagery has never been more important. Having standardised packshots for e-commerce is no longer just a great way to showcase your products, in today’s tech-forward, post COVID-19 world it’s a must for succeeding in the foodservice industry. The challenge businesses in this industry have faced up to now is that product photography is expensive, so what we’ve set out to do is invest in technology to create a service that is affordable and cost-effective. Good product photography shouldn’t cost the earth, and that’s why we’ve launched our Image Capture solution.

What does it offer?

Our Image Capture service uses cutting edge technology to deliver images at both high resolution for print, and web-optimized for use on e-commerce platforms. It covers pack and case shots, with 3 perspectives covered in each – Front, Left Angled, and Right Angled, on perfect white backgrounds in a variety of sizes up to 5,000 by 5,000 pixels.

All shots taken are automatically uploaded to the product’s specifications in Erudus and made available to Manufacturers, Wholesalers and Integration Partners to download and use, via the Erudus Image Hub and API.
