The following features have been added or enhanced in myStratus Desktop 2022 and Spectra 2022.

Feature Description
Fuji Lab Integration!

StudioPlus is pleased to announce our newest feature – Lab Integration! Yet another way to automate your workflow and save hours of labor costs.

The first lab we chose to integrate with is Fuji based on their incredible quality, prices, and customer service. We plan to add more labs in the future.

With lab integration, your orders can be automatically sent directly to Fuji Fulfilment Center, to be printed and then sent straight to your clients (if you so choose).

Best of all – just turn it on! Most items needed for integrating have been set up for you. Your responsibility is simply to customize it to meet your studio’s workflow.

Some features of the Fuji Lab integration:
- Fully Automated workflow. Once a certain percentage of your invoices are paid, they will trigger the order to get sent directly to Fuji.
- Orders are drop-shipped directly to the customer or to your studio
- Production Orders help you keep track of the status of all your orders
- Pick and choose which products to order from Fuji
- Simply check a box to “turn on the feature”
