Barcode Scanning

Whether using existing sample barcodes or creating new ones in Creative Force, barcodes are an essential tool for organizing, tracking, and managing the samples flowing through your studio.

Samples are checked in and out with a standard handheld scanner or a smartphone. Every scan is associated with a location, so you'll immediately be able to follow samples as they move around the studio and get total visibility into production progress.

Designed to Handle Volume

Whether shooting 100 or 100,000 samples, your team will be able to handle the volume while staying organized.

In Creative Force, sample management is built into every workflow. Barcodes enable team members to track every sample throughout the entire production process, from check-in to on-set to storage and more. Plus stakeholders get full visibility with real-time updates.

Locations & Containers

Organize your studio into unlimited locations and sublocations (for example, receiving rack, styling, small cove, or outbound) for detailed tracking. Use virtual containers to track, move, and check-in samples in bulk.

Creative Force captures all relevant data and allows you to verify or edit the information on-the-fly, avoiding costly, time-consuming mistakes downstream.

You'll even have a detailed, time-stamped event log for each sample, making it easy to identify any bottlenecks in your studio.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Creative Force, and how does it work?

Creative Force is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that helps brands and retailers accelerate their eCommerce creative content production. It simplifies the process of planning and producing eCommerce content, improves cross-team collaboration, and ensures more transparency across every stage of production. With Creative Force, companies always deliver the highest-quality content on time and on budget.

Built on “flow production” principles, our platform utilizes intelligent automation to streamline workflows, resulting in consistent and repeatable processes. Creative Force also integrates seamlessly with existing systems, like Capture One and Adobe Creative Cloud, and features an intuitive interface.

How does flow production work?

In traditional batch production, all assets go through a single production stage before moving to the next step. This approach can lead to bottlenecks and delays. 

Creative Force simplifies content production through a continuous process called "flow production." This process involves moving individual assets through various production stages as soon as they are ready, resulting in an efficient and scalable content production workflow.

Who can use Creative Force?

Creative Force is for brands, retailers, and commercial studios with in-house or external teams that produce and manage eCommerce content, such as photography, video, and copywriting.

Creative Force provides intelligent workflow automation, enhanced production visibility, and a range of collaboration tools that benefit all teams, including studio intake, styling, capture, post-production, marketing, and more. By choosing Creative Force, you can scale your content production, gain better operational visibility, and speed up time-to-market.
