GAP Photos Ltd, SQL Database and online content management system.

GAP Photos are the largest online digital supplier of Garden & Plant photography in the UK.

GAP contacted me for the development of a content management system to manage image sales, photographer commission payments, invoices, customer/prospect records, data extraction for distribution partners and a number of other essential photo library processes.

GAP Photos

The bespoke system was originally developed in MS Access but due to the large volume of data and high traffic to their website (some days over 250,000 low-res images are viewed on their website), SQL was the more suitable platform. The system was therefore developed in MS SQL running on a dedicated server.

IPTC Header information
After the sucess of the SQL Database, GAP Photos approached me to develop a method of populating the IPTC header information of their images at the point of download by the clients, this ensures the IPTC information is up to date and accurately reflects the image information stored in the company's database.

Client Comments:
Due to rapid expansion of our collection, our existing database technology was bursting at the seams. Using an online Content Management System with our back-end database our website was regularly experiencing slow performance.

With the help of Dennis we were able to migrate our database over to Microsoft SQL and now have a much faster, stable solution. This was vitally important to our business as we are an online-only company and the website is our only way of fulfilling customer orders.

Dennis also provided us with the relevant training to undertake minor changes to the system ourselves as we used to in our older system.

We were pleasantly surprised with the seamless transfer from one system to another with Dennis's help. Previous developers had left us cautious as we had experienced time consuming and costly errors along the way. Dennis asks all the right questions and adopts a 'right-first-time approach' which he certainly lived up to.

We now have a reputation within our industry of having the fastest and easiest to use website for our clients and this has led to many of our customers using us as their "first choice" supplier. The speed and ease of use has made the world of difference.

A big thank-you to Dennis, we will be back for more!
