Lifetouch Offers Active Network’s Webstore Solution to Thousands of Schools
SAN DIEGO, CA – November 11, 2010 – Today, Active Network, a technology and media company, and Lifetouch National School Studios Inc. (Lifetouch), the nation’s largest provider of school photography, announced that they have teamed-up to create online stores for school yearbook sales. Active Network’s Web-based Webstore software solution, available through its Educate division, allows schools to better manage their yearbook funds, inventory and sales.
“Schools and education institutions don’t always have the financial resources to accommodate the technology demands of students and the community,” said Jenny Rasmusson, Marketing Associate at Lifetouch National School Studios. “By adding Active Network’s Webstore solution to our product offering, schools can now end the manual processes traditionally used to sell school items and provide an easier, more secure solution for purchasing student keepsakes like yearbooks, class photos and more.”
Lifetouch provides portrait and yearbook services to thousands of schools and organizations. Using Active Network’s online school management software, Lifetouch can now meet the growing demand to process yearbook sales online. At no additional cost, Active Network will design custom online stores for schools to sell yearbooks and other items to students, families, and faculty. Active Network’s Webstore solution provides schools with secure payment processing, real-time financial reporting, and inventory management capabilities.
“Active Network is a leader in providing state of the art products and services, and creating new revenue generating opportunities for schools and education organizations,” said Carol Martin, senior product manager of Active Network’s Educate division. “Active Network is excited to work with Lifetouch to provide schools an online software solution that improves the operating process and increases revenue of yearbook sales.”
