Good and inexpensive sales representatives take photos themselves in Enger
Reading time approx. 4 minutes.
Do you intend to keep your inventory of sales representative photos for one of the following areas up to date?
- Business Cards
- the CRM
- HR systems
- Employee IDs
Then there is a photo box from Photo Booth Deluxe worth considering.
The mission goal
The field staff in your company have the option of creating and/or updating their personal employee photo at a fixed location or at regularly alternating locations (e.g. in the casino or company canteen or HR department).
It is essential that this is achieved in the form of a self-service process and that additional employees are not needed on site.
You give your workforce the chance to always identify 100% with their own employee photo.
The staff photos can be automatically cut to the best format, freed from disturbing elements in the background and saved in various sizes and aspect ratios if desired.
Our proposed solution
You position a photo box optimized for employee photos in your company (e.g. in the Katine, at the ID or at the reception in a quiet corner.
The space required is approx. 1.5 mx 1 m.
There, the employees will stand in front of the photo box in the same way as with a passport photo machine and see the operating instructions for the necessary actions on the touchscreen.
The screen serves as a touch screen in parallel as an input terminal for the necessary information such as e.g. B. ID, first name, last name and/or date of birth.
Alternatively, the photobooth can also be configured in such a way that the data is immediately read from the employee ID card. The information recorded in this way is then part of the file name of the employee photo taken.
Optionally, a disclaimer screen can also be displayed with a sharing option for internal/external use of the image.
After the employee portrait has been photographed, the background of the recording can be automatically replaced with one or various backgrounds specified by you. The head of each photo is also determined, adjusted to a specified size and placed in a specified position on the final image.
The photo is saved in a size and aspect ratio you specify (eg square for Active Directory). The file name is used to compare the portrait taken with the internal employee data set. We would be happy to support your IT department in clarifying the import interface.
A biometric check and an adaptation to a biometric ID photo are available as an extra expansion stage.
The image output can take place simultaneously in various forms.
So you always have the perfect photo for
the CRM system, Outlook, WhatsApp & Co, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, XING
etc. within easy reach.
Of course, each file can also be "branded" with company logos and/or the name and position of the employee will appear directly on the image.
Advantages of automated photo processes for professional employee photos
- even the name of the employee can be automatically inserted into the photo without manual rework.
- optional branding with your motif and logo.
- low workload
- the employee photo box is significantly cheaper than a booked portrait photographer
- Field staff photos according to their corporate design
- Independently created professional staff photos in the highest DSLR quality and studio lighting technology
- RAW data can also be saved on request
How does the photographed person get the photo?
So that not only the CRM system or the Active Directory can enjoy the new photos, there are three different ways for the sales representative to choose from to get his photo digitally as well.
- Download from an online gallery
At the end of the recording, a code is displayed on the screen or printed out, which the sales representative can use to copy his original photo and the various formats for the various target systems.
- Download via QR code from an offline gallery
The photo box provides a private WLAN which the sales representative has to dial into.
At the end of the recording, a QR code is displayed on the screen. That QR code leads to an offline gallery in which the field worker can save his photos. In contrast to the online gallery, this path is only possible in the immediate vicinity of the photo booth.
- Entry of the email address at the end of the photo sequence.
Then the captured photo is immediately sent to the employee's inbox.
Other deployment options
In order to get the most out of your investment, you have the following possible uses:
- Use at sales force parties (summer party, Christmas party ...}
- Employee photos (as already explained)
- Photo attraction at customer events & congresses
- Creation of biometric passport photos and ID photos
- Photos of groups of visitors, for example after a presentation
The cost frame
The price for purchasing a photobooth adapted in this way starts at around €4,400 plus VAT and is worthwhile for organizations with around 100 employees or more.
Of course, there is also the possibility to test the system beforehand on a rental basis for € 650 + € 1 / employee photo plus VAT per week.
1/2 of the rent will be offset against the later purchase if the photo box is bought immediately.
Since the system was introduced in 2019, two systems have been set up permanently in Germany and Switzerland.
Both at WWZ AG in Zurich and at Haufe Lexware, the system is very popular with employees.
