has approved Gorilla Group’s new wedding photographer studio management app for iPhone and iPod touch, SmartStudio: Wedding Photographer Studio Manager. The new app allows wedding photographers to manage their entire studio from day one. According to the company, the final product can be delivered directly from the iPhone or iPod touch.
Gorilla Group reveals that wedding photographers will be able to track and manage payments across multiple bookings and payment milestones, using the SmartStudio app, as well as capture prospective clients, manage bookings and the details for each booking. For $29.99, users are also provided with shot lists, package deliverables, itineraries, contacts, crew members, notes and even new ideas in the form of pictures.
"SmartStudio provides wedding photographers a central location to store and access crucial booking information, payment data and wedding day details that can otherwise be overwhelming to manage -- all in the palm of your hand," said Ben Harrison, destination wedding photographer and owner of Harrison Studio, LLC.
"While many wedding photographer studio management solutions cost $50/month or more and confine you to a computer and an internet connection, SmartStudio is refreshingly mobile and a one-time only cost," said Andy Anderson, owner of Gorilla Group, LLC. "Mobility is an absolute requirement in the wedding photography community."
"SmartStudio is integrated with Google Maps which gives iPhone users the ability to navigate via GPS to locations in their itineraries. It's like having an eager assistant in your pocket. The only thing it doesn't do is bring you your morning double tall 1.5 pump white mocha," Andy joked.
According to the iTunes App Store description, each booking contains a Dashboard with access to: Details, Itinerary, Contacts, Payments, Ideas, Notes, Crew, and Shots. Photographers can not only manage their packages and associate them with your bookings, but also create custom packages and customize payment due dates and amounts. Creating and managing itineraries for the entire day of each booking is just as easy, according to the people at Gorilla Group. Google Maps is also integrated into the itinerary for easy navigation.Download SmartStudio: Wedding Photographer Studio Manager ($29.99)
