eventsportsShould You Use eZSports or eZEvent?

H&H Color Lab provides two unique software solutions, eZevent and eZsports, for managing and ordering your school, sports and event picture packages. Many new customers have suggested we write an article that explains the differences between the two and what each does best.

EZsports

  • Works with PCs and Macs
  • ordering photo prints from out labLooks and works like eZsuite
  • Manages team sports with ease
  • Easiest to learn and order from
  • Does NOT support bar codes, service items, or an automated image match work flow
  • All text and subject data must be manually keyed post shoot

EZevent

  • Written to work under a Windows operating system; will run from an Intel Mac using Bootcamp
  • ordering photo products from our labAllows subject data to be imported prior to the shoot
  • Supports bar codes for use with automated subject-to-image data association and group association
  • Provides for ordering all available service items, proof plans, flyer printing and composite setup orders
  • Can leap tall buildings with a single bound, but requires time and effort to master 

For those customers considering a move towards school, sports and event work, now is the perfect time to begin the process. Many confuse the simplicity of the photography with the overall skill sets required to service the school or large league. It’s easy to think that anyone can do it! That’s often not reality, however, and there’s a lot to learn if you want to be profitable!

And there’s no better way to learn the unique nuances of working with schools and league sports than attending one of our specialty summer boot camps this coming summer. Plan to make 2010 your year to learn this lucrative business by attending one or both of these great sessions!
