A hosted (SaaS) stock-photography project management service built for "Hollandse Hoogte" using TYPO3.

The application is meant to aid the interaction between the different stakeholders in a project life-cycle and also to help manage projects better. Process flow:

  1. A broker adds his list of photographers and customers into the application
  2. A client creates projects with descriptions and expected time-lines
  3. Based on the client's requirements and specifications, the Broker then assigns a photographer to the project
  4. The Photographer accepts the project and uploads the raw unprocessed version of the photographs for approval by the client
  5. Client approves and provides feedback
  6. Upon approval, the photographer processes the images further based on the client's feedback and uploads the final version
  7. Client approves
  8. Once the client approves the final images/photographs, the project is considered completed and is then closed

Implementation: The service has been implemented in a LAMP environment using the TYPO3 Content Management System.
