CBB TextPrinter - Body Metals Case Study
Body Metals is a laser center for
tattoo removal, piercing and tattoo studio in Belgium. The studio contains 4 closed
cabinets with touch screens, running web application written in
screens out of 17000 designs neatly ordered by category. It is common that a
client visits several times before he chooses his tattoo. A copy of the design
is not given to the customers.
Problem: The customer can spend an hour searching and find some
interesting designs, next time he comes the client has to start where he left and
locate his previous selection again.
Solution: The customer can save his favorite designs as small pictures
on the bottom of the touch screen. Before he leaves the studio, the client can
touch a button to print the names of the chosen designs on a slip with a
bar-code. When he returns to search further for a design, we can, using the
slip from his previous visit, scan his favorite designs back in the touch screen.
