Lucidiom EQ Gives Retailers One-Stop Fulfillment for Photo Gifts


Centrics Partnership Allows Retailers to Offer Consumers Hundreds of Photo Gifts

Vienna, Virginia, USA.- Lucidiom Inc. is partnering with Centrics LLC of St. Louis, Mo., to give retailers one-stop shopping and fulfillment for hundreds of photo gifts through Lucidiom’s EQ Complete Imaging System.

Lucidiom saw its kiosk-based photo gift orders rise 600% in 2007 compared to 2006 orders, creating more profits for retailers, but also more logistical challenges. Instead of managing several different vendors in order to offer consumers a wide selection of photo merchandise, retailers now can sign up with Lucidiom’s EQ Gifting System to handle the order logistics. Retailers can track orders through one system, get one simple invoice from Lucidiom, and yet can offer hundreds of new photo gifts to their customers quickly and easily.

“From coffee mugs and apparel to games and jewelry, Lucidiom EQ now will offer hundreds of photo gifts - all easily accessible to consumers through the retailer’s APM kiosk or Photo Finale website,” said Stephen Giordano Jr., president of Lucidiom. “Plus, for consumers, whether using the APM or retailer’s Photo Finale website, the EQ Gifting System will offer the products by theme - travel, wedding, birthday, anniversary, baby, home dcor, kitchen or him/her gifting - so that consumers can find what they want quickly.”

For instance, do you know a sports fanatic? Check out the sports gear and logo ware. Have a new baby? Browse the baby apparel, teddy bears and licensed characters.

“This type of software organization from Lucidiom combined with trouble-free third-party fulfillment from Centrics allows retailers to enter new markets and appeal to new demographics. They can grow their digital imaging profits without all the hassles of brokering and managing new vendor deals with several gift manufacturers,” said Tim Hufker, CEO of Centrics LLC. “It’s a win-win for the consumer and for the retailer.”

The gift management feature is included in EQ’s latest retail kiosk and online solutions. Retailers pay no subscription fees for the service.

The photo and craft industries can view EQ at two upcoming trade shows: PMA 08 in Las Vegas, Nev., January 31- February 2; and Winter CHA in Anaheim, Calif., February 10-13.
