Portland, OR—onOne Software, Inc., a developer and provider of photo effects and software tools for pros to casual snapshooters, launched onOne Labs, a blog that lists new technologies and products being considered for development in the effort to gauge interest and solicit customer feedback.
onOne Labs allows visitors to learn about development projects, note their interest level and offer constructive comments. The site enables visitors to directly engage with onOne Software in a collaborative development process and voice what’s important for their digital photography and image editing needs.
Projects discussed will range from those early in the concept stage to those in the very beginning of development to those that are near completion. Projects will also be updated throughout their development to elicit additional feedback.
“Customer input has always been a key factor in the development of our product offerings,” said Craig Keudell, president of onOne Software. “In the past, we have gained tremendous insight from our customers about their wants and needs through occasional phone calls, e-mails, surveys and conversations at conferences. Going forward, we’d like to have an ongoing and direct conversation with our customers to make sure we are meeting their expectations and building the best products for their photography needs. We already have a number of exciting things in the works, which we believe will become great additions to our line up especially after getting customer feedback via these Labs.”
The onOne Labs currently includes discussions about features now in development for the next version of Perfect Photo Suite—including a quick view browser and a new Perfect Enhance module—and new product offerings, such as one currently referred to as Lightpad. These projects are listed with descriptions and may include visual mock-ups or videos to further describe them. Each of these are now listed in the onOne Labs awaiting feedback.
