PNI, CVS renew online photo services pact
June 23rd, 2011
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – PNI Digital Media has extended its online photo services contract with CVS/pharmacy.
The retailer digital media provider said Wednesday that the deal adds three years to its Internet services agreement with CVS to provide and operate the drug store chain's online photo service, cvsphoto.com, which is connected to more than 7,200 CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide.
According to PNI, the service will continue to allow CVS/pharmacy customers to upload and place orders for photo prints, greeting cards, calendars, photo books, posters, canvas prints and other photo gifts on the CVS Photo website, as well as give them the option to pick up photo prints within an hour or have photo orders shipped to them.
"CVS/pharmacy has been incredibly innovative in their approach to the online photo market," Kyle Hall, chief executive officer of PNI Digital Media, said in a statement. "The ability to work with them has been a very rewarding experience for the whole PNI team, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to continue the relationship for this extended period."
Vancouver-based PNI operates the PNI Digital Media Platform, which provides transaction processing and order routing for major retailers. The solution links consumer-ordered digital content — from online, in-store kiosks, desktop software or mobile devices — with retailers that have on-demand production capabilities for personalized products such as photos, photo books, photo calendars, business cards and stationery.
