Shutterstock needed a new system to aggregate very large volumes of data coming from several sales channels. The system had to integrate into some legacy tools and replace others while inspiring real user engagement.

The Background

Shutterstock is a leading global provider of high-quality licensed photographs, vectors, illustrations, videos and music to businesses, marketing agencies and media organizations around the world. Working with a growing community of over 1 million contributors, Shutterstock adds hundreds of thousands of images each week, and currently has more than 350 million images and more than 20 million video clips available. Headquartered in New York City, the company has offices around the world and customers in more than 150 countries.

The Solution

The new web application is aimed at providing the team with new possibilities in analytics, while remaining both user-friendly and efficient. Forty different transaction screens have been developed for a seamless user experience (UX) within an intuitive user interface (UI). The system offers synoptic views for quick analysis of results and client behavior and provides the sales tracking and management of payments to authors. It allows the user to customize the display according to his needs, to do advanced multiple-criteria searches and to benefit from an improved ergonomic interface and user experience for superior operational efficiency. During the development, Shutterstock had access to a versatile team of experts under the same roof, which meant that it could successfully address all of the development challenges that came up and concentrate on its other strategic projects.

The Results

The new multi-platform visualization tools developed by Spiria simplified access to large volumes of consolidated data which had previously been processed separately on different systems. They have multiplied capacity in sales analytics and enhanced trend detection in real time and they facilitate the extraction of Key Performance Indicators (KPI).  This was the first project of a long list of collaborations where Spiria has continued to develop inspiring, high-performance digital solutions for Shutterstock.

Working with Spiria felt like having an extended team. Their collaborative and very fluid approach drove great results.
