ROES Web is SoftWorks Systems latest web browser-based ordering application. ROES Web is a full featured app that runs in a single webpage. It has many of the same features of the ROES Desktop Client without the need of a customer download. SoftWorks Systems provides the majority of the server requirements greatly reducing the effort and infrastructure required to bring ROES Web online. ROES Web uses the same catalog creation process (Template Tool), enabling the lab to create, modify, update their catalog of products, services and pricing without the need to contact the software vendor (Us). Total Control = Quicker New Product Creation = More Revenue for the lab (You).

ROES Desktop - Portrait & Wedding

Release up to four separate ROES Desktop clients for ordering. Maybe one for Portrait ordering, one for Wedding ordering, one for Sports ordering, one for Corporate ordering. The choice is yours.

At the heart of your customers experience is your branded ROES client. The client is the application that your customers will use to create their orders and send them to your lab. It has been designed to be easy to use so your customers have a great experience placing orders with your lab. The Core ROES Client is a Java-based application that runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. ROES offers the user the ability to select a lab defined product and precisely define crops and rotations on their images within that product. Add-on modules like the Designer Suite and the Packager Suite provide labs a number of optional tools they can provide to the photographer to create and submit their order to your lab.

Why force your photographers to buy software to create and send you large volume sports and event jobs?

ROES Desktop - Sports, Schools & Volume

This powerful new tool will allow your customers to automate the Sports, School or other mass ‘Data Sensitive’ order entry process. Events can dramatically reduce the time it takes to enter in large sports and event orders.

With the NEWLY rebuilt Events module many changes were made. Events now exist outside the context of an order and they persist. This allows us to begin developing a workflow to make it easier for your customers to create, manage and most importantly, creates orders from an event. We’ve developed a workflow based on the use of what we call subject cards that help us automate the process of image association. Subject cards are printed sheets of paper with a QR encoded ID or Bar Code encoded ID along with human readable data that links a particular subject to a record in a table. The events module can scan through images and find and decode the subject cards, placing each subject card and any following images not containing a subject card into a group. Events also enables users to create rows and columns with data quickly then associate that data with customer images. Once the table is verified, the powerful Auto Review process can automatically build ROES order with little or no user assistance.

“The features in the ROES Client are only overshadowed by the automation it gives us at the lab with the ROES Server.” - WHCC

ROES Server

The ROES Server comes FREE of charge with the ROES Ordering Platforms and is the only production system you will need to run your lab.

ROES Server 3.0 provides a complete production system for labs using the ROES ordering platforms. Complete with a central database that all workstations are connected and share data. Auto discovery of other workstations makes for an easy setup on your network. Color correction, user accounts and a default database are all included. For advanced labs or workflows, the ROES Server also supports scripts written in over 30+ languages. Scripts are pieces of code that can be added to the server, by the lab, which can interact with the server, its environment and the outside world. The ROES Server can help run labs from the smallest to largest in size. For labs using older productions systems like Noritsu Hot Folders, Fuji PIC Pro, dp2, Frontline, Halse Systems, Xerox DocUSP or other back end systems we have a ROES Server to you as well.
