Rotterdam's Helloprint is launching an API software kit for the design of enterprise marketing materials.
The APIs are tailored to large organisations with multiple branches, enabling dispersed teams to connect to a centralised, platform-agnostic software repository with Helloprint enterprise designs all delivered locally, reducing cost, speed of delivery and carbon footprints.
Founded in 2013, Helloprint aims to be the world's largest marketplace for customised print products, with a network of over 300 manufacturers extending its presence into Europe, the US, Asia, and Australasia.
The new API product has been trialled in a multi-year beta test that saw Canva, the Australian graphic design cloud, become involved.
Hans Scheffer, Helloprint CEO, comments: "Whilst our technology suite has long been able to integrate with the core systems used by large organisations, including ERPs, brand portals and DAMs such as Bynder, Marvia and Ciloo, the evolution of the API means that we can now integrate with almost any system via our network of partners – the possibilities are endless.
"Without a doubt, the key benefit of what we’re offering today is that our customers are assured of the quality and reliability of our network, regardless of disrupted supply chains and closed borders.
"Our local network of over 300 producers in 30+ countries, connected to more than 40 delivery services, guarantees not only quality, but also delivery that significantly reduces their carbon footprint - that’s why larger brands are now choosing our services”
