Lytho delivered an integrated digital asset management solution

• We are always thriving for a simple way of working and collaboration. Lytho made it possible to phase out other applications without resistance. The fact Lytho works similar like ‘consumer’ applications as Google search and Pinterest made the adaptation easy and made sure there was no threshold to benefit from it from day one. • The fact we didn’t receive any individual training request by users proved Lytho is truly easy to use. We only utilized the offered administrator and template training. Onboarding went fully via video-conferencing and was sufficient and fun to do. • From an IT perspective we were able to phase out three other applications and decreased the amount of work involved with sharing content with approx. 40%.

Pros

We were looking for a solution for easy collaboration on our digital assets with our own teams and with external partners and agencies. We wanted to discourage the usage of several tools like for example wetransfer and dropbox and offer one easy to use integrated solution to our users. Lytho turned out to be the ideal solution. Because Lytho is so easy to use, the adoption of the new solution went without saying. For us the integration with Microsoft Office with an additional plus which helps us using the right files and content across channels.

Cons

Nothing , at least we did not encounter any problems in implementation or usec

Lytho directly boosted the results of our agency after a joint implementation for one of our biggest

*Core business, mission, challenge Our biggest challenge is to share, store and retrieve big amounts of digital assets in the easiest possible way. Lytho turns out to be the solution for that. *Process of implementation? It was a joint implementation. Lytho was responsible for the technical design and the data migration. We took care of the configuration and onboarding. For us it was a great cooperation and big thanks to the Lytho team. * Most important results that customer has achieved by using Lytho? Centralizing all different repositories and move them all to a single source, while it can be searched and retrieved very easily was by far the biggest benefit.

Pros

A large international retail customer of ours was looking for a mature Digital Asset Management solution to manage over 1 million digital assets. After a diligent selection process we finally awarded Lytho. One of the biggest advantages is that they are using the latest technology especially when it comes to the use of ai technology. Their auto-tagging and batch editing of metadata are key when handling these amounts of assets. Compared to what we saw Lytho is definitely the frontrunner in this market.

Cons

Until now are expectations are exceeded.

Reasons for choosing Lytho

User experience and UI of Lytho fresher and significantly better

Response from Lytho

Thank you for the review! Fantastic to hear that you are enjoying our AI functionalities. We've just recently added new AI-driven generic auto tagging features that we hope you will enjoy. Good luck with managing all your assets and get in touch with our support team if there is anything that we can do for you!

Review by Aeres (Dutch education organization)

As a large sized learning institute we have a lot of locations throughout the country, with also different education levels. This structure is quite complex to manage in relation to the many assets we have. Therefore we had trouble finding the right assets for the right purpose, which took a lot of time. Also our locations were having trouble with creating on-brand material to communicate with (potential) students. When we were introduced to the way Lytho has solved the categorizing and structuring of the Assets we were curious how that would work for us. Lytho gave us good guiding and best practices to create the taxonomy via a tag structure to be able to find the Asset we need. Combined with the permissions you can apply on user-level, locations and education levels only have access to the Assets they need to see. Next to the DAM we are also using the Brand guide module to inform every education level with their own branding guidelines. Nice feature there is that you can share a brand guide (with downloadables) as a webpage with everybody you want via a simple link! We are planning to integrate further with Lytho and also start using their Create & Publish module with dynamic templating and integration with Adobe InDesign. This will allow us to create templates for flyers and posters which our locations can dynamically fill, without needing designer skills. Meanwhile we can stay in control because the creations need to be approved by us. To conclude we recommend Lytho!

Pros

Easy to upload and download in Digital Asset Manager (DAM) Quick development Easy to contact Dynamic and online brand guides

Cons

Sometimes technical issues due to development

Response from Lytho

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Tina! We appreciate your honest feedback. Great to hear that you've been benefitting from the taxonomy, we like to think that it's one of the things that really set us apart. We are sorry that you've experienced technical issues in the past, we are working on making Lytho the best it can be which can sometimes cause delays. Hope to be partnering with your for a long time to come, thanks for trusting us with your assets!

Lytho review - ROC Nijmegen

‘Before Lytho, we had no DAM system in place. We worked manually with our file server and Sharepoint environment and used WeTransfer to share our files. It took us quite a lot of time to find, update, share & manage all these assets. The control on consent management on assets was difficult for us, which was a major pain point in terms of GDPR compliance. Lytho was the obvious choice for us given the guidance their experience in the education market and support we received from their team prior to signing. The interface is easy to use. We like the ability to easy create your own menu filters (in different languages), easily share and upload files (whether for internal teams or external users). The workflows and the quitclaim module for making sure all our assets are always inline with the respective consent forms make life much easier. I’d highly recommend Lytho to any team looking to connect people to their brand. Very fast and simple implementation as the Lytho team walked us through the process, step by step. The user reporting could be improved, but we’ve been told that this is already being worked on and they now have endpoints available for Power BI tools.

Pros

The DAM is very userfriendly, especially the searchengine. It even recognizes typos.

Cons

restrictions on the amount of tag groups and limited amount of default users

Great solution for efficiency and brand consistency

We use Lytho to manage all our content in a centralized way, so each office can easily find the right content for them. We have a lot of assets, pictures, templates and other materials and being able to find any piece of content with just a couple of clicks is a huge deal for us. Our different locations and offices can now create their own marketing content, and with Lytho’s assistance, we know that the materials are always on brand.

Pros

Our users love the interactive brand center which now houses our brand guidelines. It was the deciding factor that won us over when we were choosing a DAM to store and organize our brand.

Cons

The way of setting up and maintaining the online brand guideline should be improved.

Response from Lytho

Thanks for the feedback Nel! It's great to hear from you, especially since you've been working with Lytho for a longer period now and have a unique perspective through that. We've heard your improvement suggestions and are releasing an even better brand center very soon. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it. Other than that, it makes us happy to hear that Lytho has enabled you to reach brand consistency and that you are able to scale content without added agency costs. Thank you for these past years and here's to many more!
