Asset Bank is digital asset management software that can be deployed either on-premise or in the cloud. The solution is suitable for the needs of large organizations. Asset Bank enables users to share and manage all digital assets such as videos, logos, images and documents.
Asset Bank offers multiple features that help users control asset usage, add metadata to assets and preview or upload files. There are multiple permission settings to control how users upload, view and download assets. To prevent the unauthorized use of any digital content, the solution automatically adds watermarks to all image previews.
Asset Bank has a search functionality that retrieves search results on the basis of asset attributes that include ID, status, date, location and more. Users can set download presets as well as resize, edit or reformat assets prior to downloading.
User content on the platform can be converted and viewed in various languages that include Spanish, Italian, German and Greek.

The software is very intuitive and it's quite easy to grasp the basics quickly and the more complicated bits during the initial consultation phase. The training was tailored to our particular requirements , thoughtful and thorough. We found the Assetbank team to be responsive and helpful. We're pleased that the software does more than we were originally expecting (for example, adds our watermark, crops to size etc).
I found some of the field name terminologies initially a bit alien and the list of attributes overwhelming, but names can be changed and unrequired attributes hidden.
Will from The Dartington Hall Trust
- Incredible depth of customisation that allows you to have total control over how all types of user experience it
- The depth of the system doesn't mean it's hard to use. Design, navigation and general user experience is extremely good.
- Great support desk for when you need a bit of extra help, advice or system upgrades
- Not really a con but you need a dedicated person(s) to fully understand the software in order to create something which genuinely works for your organisation. It will work 'out of the box' but you will encounter issues further down the line unless you take the time to fully understand it and implement it properly. But this is how it should be for an application of this nature.
Jonas from Vetrotech Saint-Gobain International AG
When we set up our Asset Bank we were overwhelmed about the great amount of possiblities how we canuse our DAM-System. It was and still is a pleasure working with this tool. The support team is doing a great job by helping when there are any kind of issues.
Allen from Pepperdine University
Our rep did a very nice job upgrading our system as part of your system health check. He also provided excellent subsequent trouble shooting when we noticed a couple small issues. I am very pleased with the work he did and reinforces my strong positive opinions about the support staff at Bright Interactive. Well done!
Holly from The Royal College of Radiologists
The team at Asset Bank have been very supportive, offering detailed training to make sure that we are able to get the most from the software.
Lucy from Edelman
The customer support from Asset Bank is superior. They go above and beyond to explain how to customize the tool and help you with configurations. They are quick to respond and very thorough. We really enjoyed working with them through design and our implementation.
Jamie from Study Group
Since joining Study Group just 6 months ago I have been a regular user of Bright Interactive's Asset Bank. It is truly feature packed and offers excellent search and categorisation facilities. Being able to quickly create and share (both internally and externally) your own Lightbox's (essentially a customised bundle of assets) using your own company's branding at every step of the way is a huge bonus to us and helps maintain an extremely high level of professionalism when communicating with our partners/clients.
Victoria from London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
We are really pleased with Assetbank in terms of its functionality, how it looks and how easy it is to use. The whole project has run really smoothly with great help from the customer services team, especially Stewart Oak. We are looking forward to adding more images and promoting it more widely to the staff and students at LSHTM.
Justine from Sage
Intuitive user experience, great value with a fast and friendly support team. Highly recommend Asset Bank!
Kate from Amber Beverage Group
I appretiate very much kind support of Asset Bank team who helped me a lot to solve some problems with our digital library.
Easy to navigate, very good design.
I would suggest some things: the option that you could send a message to users by choosing them from the list (now there is option to send to all group). To delete folder not one by one, but that you can chose several folders and delete them at once. To see in email from Asset bank who is asking for a permission do upload/download something (as now only notification comes that someone is asking for a permission). It would be great if image of folder could be adjusted automatically - as now I need to resize it each time when I want to change it.

Asset Bank is the archiving solution of our dreams, with a customer service team to match. It is helping our organization pull together a variety of disparate databases cobbled together over the course of years¿finally uniting our files in one central location with intuitive searching and a beautiful user-friendly interface. The customization options are seemingly limitless to fit every possible application of what is already a fantastic platform.
It was intimidating to start the search for a new DAM, but Asset Bank jumped off the list as the clear front-runner, and proved the best even after rigorous comparison with competitors. The support of the Asset Bank team is what puts it over the top. At every turn in the process, the answer was ¿yes, we can do that¿ or ¿we will figure out how to make it happen.¿ Training that could have been boring was to-the-point and customized for our needs. Throughout the consultancy process, the Asset Bank team consistently transformed what seemed insurmountable challenges into conquerable bite-size chunks. A flawless experience!
After years trying to work with systems not suited to meet the demands we were placing on them, Asset Bank brought together all the functionality we were looking for in a platform to archive our documents, photos, and dozens of other file types generated from 30 years of being in business. We are looking forward to saving time and frustration locating our files and collaborating on them across our various teams.
It took a little while to catch on to the industry terminology and ins and outs of managing a system like this, but the Asset Bank team was there to help at every step of the way!
If you're in the market for a new DAM, don't hesitate! Asset Bank is the one you are looking for. Easily the best decision we made, and has only kept getting better.

Asset Bank is a versatile Asset Management system with an easy to use interface and enough power and flexibility to tailor your company's needs. From watermarking to download limitations, Bright's interactive features are powerful enough to control keywords, groups and permissions for any size organization.

More tool tips and user suggestions would be nice. I studied all of the AB documentation, but it was mainly the screenshots rather than the articles themselves that helped me set up my own site.

I have found the customer support to be a first rate service. We have recently been overhauling our asset bank to make more effective use of keywords. Victoria has gone the extra mile in facilitating visits and phone calls with other universities who have gone through this process. This invaluable insight has enabled us to make progress much quicker than would have been the case.
Engaging platform with multiple applications. Easy to use.
The back end is very technical and requires a higher level of knowledge than you might expect

Thank you very much fantastic first experience with your product. I will be presenting this to my clients to show them how feature rich it really is.
Features, admin options

The new layout is quite pleasant and the new features are very useful and userfriendly. Our users are really happy with our service also thanks to Asset Bank!

Our experience with Asset Bank has been great. The team came back to us with solutions in no time and some of our UAT feedback has already been implemented in the latest release. We could also very much rely on our project manager and consultant from Asset Bank to drive the implementation. They were always helpful in guiding us how we should best handle things we weren't sure about.
We love the product and received good feedback from our community. Asset Bank is almost fully configurable by the Admin, which means that it can be adopted to fulfil different use cases.
Although we use Asset Bank as an internal digital assets library, the options of sharing assets externally was one of our key requirements. Asset Bank enabled us to share externally while still complying with our security and data protection guidelines.
Asset Bank search is great as it finds not only exact matches but also synonyms and includes phonetic search.
Only the renaming of "Lightbox" to "Favourites" was challenging. The term is not everywhere managed as a variable. We recommend every new customer to rethink if a renaming is absolutely necessary before implementing it.
Overall, we are very happy with the project delivery as well as the tool itself and we are looking forward to many great releases!
simple application, good search, easy to configure, good UI, can be implemented in short time
some variables are not used consistently, eCard feature can only be turned on or off for all assets
rethink renaming of fixed terms such as "Lightbox" to "Favourites"
Roger from City of Calgary
The Asset Bank software is easy to upgrade. The installation software is great, doesn¿t matter what version of Asset Bank you are running, the upgrade software automatically detects your current version and does necessary steps to upgrade your database and software. Best of all, all your customize colors, looks & feels, company logos are all there after the upgrade. You don¿t have to reapply the changes again. I would highly recommend using Asset Bank software. Great job Bright Interactive!!!
Colin from Archimedia
As an integrator for Asset Management solutions I have been using Asset Bank exclusively for the last 5 years.
We have integrated a lot of clients into the system with the knowledge that the project will always go smoothly on the install and the setup of the instance, but more importantly that the support behind the instance is ridiculously superb.
The last thing I want is to have a client with an issue and no support behind me. I always joke (though based on truth) that if I have not heard back from support in a very timely fashion I know they are all dead).
Being based in the UK has not really been an issue for time zones as if they are not there to answer right away, you will most likely wake up to the answer from support.
It has full functionality out of the box for all those bells / whistles that are expected, but one of the vastly overlooked features is its appearance and ease of use. It is designed in such a way that is natural to navigate and use. It does not look like a mirror to a "c" drive windows 1998 folder system.
This makes for easy use of the system and allows for easy adoption for new users which in our world, is over half the problem with integrating systems.
People hate change though they all like Asset Bank.
Take a look at their offerings, you will not be disappointed.
Kim from CSC media
We are a small in-house AV shop of a worldwide organization with members in over 190 countries. We don't have a dedicated IT department for audio/video.
We happened upon Asset Bank while searching for a product that would help us deliver video/audio materials to our organization's members via web that up until that point had been receiving everything through couriers or by snail mail. AB has been instrumental in allowing us to get that done.
We set up our system with careful planning and using a couple of online consultancy sessions with Asset Bank staff. The online Knowledge Base materials are invaluable. The versatility of the system allowed us to configure multiple aspects while maintaining professional and powerful database management characteristics.
Also, the ability to set permission levels, harvest metadata from uploaded video files and link text and audio assets to a given video has given us a functional and affordable workflow. Our members have found the AB interface very clean and user friendly. No doubts about recommending Asset Bank to other companies.

I've been using Asset Bank's digital asset management solution for just over 2 years. From my first contact with the company, it's clear they are passionate about the product and keen to find a solution that fits well with businesses of all sizes.
The system is very user friendly, easy to use and functions how you would expect it to from day one of installation. I've had no issues using the system over the past 2 years and would highly recommend the DAM solution from Asset Bank.
