September 25, 2018

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the development of FUJIFILM Express Print System, a system that enables users to order prints of photos they have taken with their smartphones through a dedicated smartphone app at photo stores. The system is comprised of FUJIFILM Select & Go, a smartphone app enabling users to order prints, and FUJIFILM Express Print Order Receiver, a set containing a Wi-Fi device and dedicated software enabling stores to receive print order data from the smartphone app. FUJIFILM Express Print System will be showcased at photokina 2018, a trade fair held in Cologne, Germany from September 26 to 29.

The rise of smartphones in recent years has resulted in an increase in photo-taking opportunities. Photos keep piling up in smartphones, and many users have not gotten a chance to print those photos. To meet the demand for a service enabling users to print their photos, Fujifilm has launched services allowing users to print photos taken by their smartphones in photo stores, and supplies a variety of printing systems to the stores, including devices for ordering prints in stores, high-quality printers and mini-lab systems.

With the FUJIFILM Express Print System, stores can build the infrastructure required for receiving print orders from smartphones simply by installing a Wi-Fi device to communicate with the smartphone app and FUJIFILM Express Print Order Receiver, dedicated software for receiving print order information, on their computer. The system is compatible with Fujifilm's Frontier DE100** mini-lab system, allowing stores to provide high-quality printing services. It also enables stores that already offer a printing service to expand their printing business without installing multiple devices for ordering prints, making the system ideal for stores where space is limited.
Users can select photos at any time from their home or while they are out. All users need to do is select the photos they want to print in the app, and then select the print size when they arrive at the store.

Fujifilm aims to continue contributing to the development of photo culture by meeting users' diversifying needs with products and services that create ideal combinations of software and photo printing devices with various output methods, providing a high degree of convenience and added value.
