VANCOUVER, June 18, 2013 /CNW/ - PNI Digital Media (TSX: PN; OTCQB:
PNDMF), ("PNI" or "the Company"), the leading provider of digital media
solutions for retailers, announced today it has added access to
SkyDrive through its PNI Digital Media Platform, further improving its
cloud media integration. SkyDrive is Microsoft's private cloud
technology with over 250 million users.
"Our recently launched cloud storage integrations are already generating
over 5 percent of all images consumers are using to personalize
products such as canvas prints, photo books and personalized greeting
cards on our platform," said Kyle Hall, CEO of PNI Digital Media. "Next
to mobile, cloud storage integrations like SkyDrive represent the
largest near term opportunity for incremental transactions. Being first
to market with a solution that easily connects to cloud storage
services is important for near term growth. Strategically, our cloud
storage integrations are part of a bigger platform initiative to
directly connect retail print services with user's tablets and
smartphones. This will ensure that the consumers using the sites we
provide can create compelling products and the retailer-partners who
rely on our platform can generate transactions and revenue from any
device, anywhere. As new tablets like the Microsoft Surface and new
applications such as Office 365 gain traction with consumers, so do the
number of images being generated and shared from integrated services
such as SkyDrive. Directly connecting our retailer-partners print
services on the PNI Platform to SkyDrive positions us well for future
Customers interacting with the PNI Digital Media Platform through
retailer branded sites can instantly access and print their digital
photos stored across a number of cloud storage sites including Dropbox,
Facebook, Instagram, Google+ Photos, Google Drive, Flickr and now
SkyDrive. Images stored on any of these sites can be seamlessly printed
at the customers preferred retail location and be ready for pick-up in
as little as an hour. The first implementation of SkyDrive integration
to the PNI Digital Media Platform has already launched at Tesco, Costco
US, Walmart Canada, CVS and Sam's Club and will launch at additional
PNI retailer customers shortly.
