1. Printbox culture

We got to know each other to get a real feel for the Printbox culture.

Behind every brilliant idea and every strong project stands an exceptional team. Our first goal was to get to know these people and their specific work culture to understand how Printbox delivers successful printing solutions and technological advantages to their clients around the world. We discovered three factors behind their success - see them in bold below.

Printbox is successful thanks to their talented, dedicated, and hard-working employees, who work to provide the ultimate value for their partners.

Prtinbox is successful thanks to their strong development team, which has built the ultimate end2end IT solution, providing a technological edge over the competition.

2. The product and tech background

We went deep into Printbox's product and the tech background.

It's a huge thing to be a one-stop shop for the eCommerce needs of the digital printing industry. You've got to account for rapid changes in the market, big cloud & data storage challenges, complex eCommerce platforms, online photo editors, and mobile apps. You also have to consider social media integration and the future of JS & HTML5 app development. That's a lot of tech stuff to take care of! To understand it all better, we went deep into this complex but beautiful tech background to gain a better understanding of Printbox products.

6. Agreement

We built a dedicated contract structure.

When we began building a common vision of our collaboration, we took a good look at the organizational and financial needs of each party. On that basis, we got together with Printbox to create a contract that fulfilled everyone's expectations and minimized risk on both sides.

Main goals:

1. Flexible team size and work scope

The business development of technology startups requires maximum flexibility in work and team planning. That's why we prepared a scalable team and range of services based on regular, monthly assumptions.

2. Flexible working hours

Dynamic growth also needs flexibility in budget planning. For that reason, we came to an agreement with Printbox on the minimum numbers of monthly working hours and a guarantee for larger numbers in the case of changes to their needs or budget.

3. Perfect double-sided contract

To meet the needs of both sides, we chose a contract agreement with a time and material model based on a monthly work settlement with the best rates.
