Year in Review: 2021
As the year comes to an end, it’s time to continue the annual tradition of our Year in Review to look back at some of the huge leaps and bounds Customer’s Canvas made in 2021.

The pandemic continued to redefine our normal lives, creating unprecedented disruptions and challenges for companies around the world. However, many businesses still came to us with ambitious projects. Your persistence despite these uncertain conditions indicated to us that more businesses than ever are discovering the benefits of automation and web-to-print. As ever, we’re ready to help companies take the next step in growing their business. 

We want to look back and shine a light on the big achievements of 2021, thank everyone who has worked with Customer’s Canvas, and wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  

Customer’s Canvas: Version 6.0

The hard work of the Customer’s Canvas team, together with the insightful feedback we received from our clients, joined forces to create the new Customer’s Canvas Version 6.0.

True cloud architecture

Our release of Version 6.0 has made Customer’s Canvas truly scalable. Do you have large seasonal upticks in volume? We’ve got you covered. Customers Canvas Cloud can adjust to your workload in real-time.

The new admin panel for managing web-to-print projects

We introduced a new admin panel in Version 6.0 that simplifies the workflows for managing assets and the integration process for your web-to-print application. You can also use this admin panel to maintain your integration with e-commerce platforms like Shopify.

The brand-new Template Editor

Something that we have been really excited about this year is our brand-new Template editor, which we tailored to simplify the process of creating and configuring web-to-print templates.

Aurum: the new theme for our design editors

Our updated theme for the editor interface is another event worthy of your attention. This year we introduced Aurum – a modern, user-friendly, and attractive new theme for our design editors. The updated icons and larger toolbars improve the experience for end-users editing designs on smaller screens.

Microsoft Gold Partner Status

Our company received Gold Certified Status in the Microsoft partner program in 2021. This recognition is a great new milestone in our relationship with Microsoft. Our new gold status opens up even more opportunities to create high-quality, in-demand solutions for the web-to-print market.

New integration services

If you want to successfully automate your business with web-to-print, you need a reliable development team that knows the specifics of web-to-print and can ensure the smooth operation of your online store. We are ready to act in this role and help at all stages of your project, from planning to integration with our new Customer’s Canvas integration services.

On top of all these achievements, our development team has been working hard on several other major and minor updates. Let’s take a look at some of the honorable mentions from last summer and fall.
