Thank you for purchasing ProStock Agency, the most complete and comprehensive software system available for stock photo agencies and picture libraries of all sizes.
Please, read this manual because, like your business, ProStock Agency has many sections to it. You will be surprised and delighted to see all of the things ProStock can do to automate your business - and you won’t know half of them without reading the manual!
This manual has a comprehensive Tutorial, which is marked by easily identifiable yellow boxes. A Tutorial Overview is displayed at the beginning of each section. Click on the first step of the overview section to go directly to the first yellow box. Click on the Tutorial Step inside the box, and the instructions will display. Each box has a "Go to the next step" and "Go to the previous step" link. Have your employees go through the Tutorial - even the parts of the program they don’t normally use. That way, everyone will have a thorough understanding of the way in which the different sections integrate into the whole program. If the people in your agency are comfortable with, and know the program, your business will run at its most efficient.
The Tutorial Section will take you fully through a typical agency cycle:
Add and retrieve information from Clients, Photographers, Staff members and Vendors.
Receive Image submissions from your Photographers
Log the material in - Image number, caption, keywords, etc.
Prepare a submission to your Client - log the Images out
Prepare an Invoice for licensed Images
Return the Images that weren’t used
Post the payment for that Invoice - automatically preparing Photographer and Salesperson Commissions
Pay the Commissions to the Photographers and Salespeople
You will see that ProStock is a powerful and complete system for running your business; complex and yet completely adaptable to almost any situation. This combination of complexity and flexibility gives you the ability to be as orderly and methodical as possible when instituting the program into your business.
