Top findability with Assets

I spect a lot of time searching images and/or documents into folders on each PC of my organization. WW Assets allows us to have our whole digital archive in one site and to share each asset with people outside our company without mail, FTP, Dropbox, drive.

Pros

The possibility to find each asset filtering results by keyword, type, tag, metadata, and more.

Cons

Referring to my job, I think that WW Assets already has all I need.

Hi Steven, thank you for your earnest feedback. We are working hard to enable our users to create their content management workflow using Elvis and Enterprise. Could you let us know what you would expect from an Illustrator plugin? Using the Elvis Agent you can easily work with local Illustrator files. Is there more you would expect? Please feel free to reply here or message us at support[at]woodwing.com

A bureau view on WW Assets

Central access to assets. Version control. Differenciated access til files.

Pros

The option to have both a Pro interface and a brand interface. The extended metadata support

Cons

Our setup as a bureau requires that we purchase one solution which we have to distribute access to for our customers. This means that there are taxonomies that are shared among our customers. There is no way to limit storage per customer Pricing is too high. You need to have free users, that can browse and download. This is how Cumulus from Canto does it.

A swiss knife for DAM

Pros

We were pleasantly surprised by the ease of customisation (if you have a developer at hand) and the APIs are generally well done, as is the documentation.

Cons

Some hiccups in the web interface, nothing major for now, usually resolved by a reload or a re-login.

Coca-Cola user experience Elvis DAM

My overall experience with Elvis DAM is that the productiveness of the graphics designers and creative agencies increased significantly. The manual admin process of uploading, downloading and sharing assets is facilitated and enables us to use our time in a more efficient way.

Pros

What I like most about this software is that it is very intuitive, user-friendly and there are lots of opportunities to integrate to or from other applications.

Cons

What I don't like about the software that sometimes it takes a long time to develop. For example you cannot download a png format with transparent background from a ai file. The system of having to place the request on a platform and waiting for 'votes' of other users take too much time. What I don't like either is that when you want to replace an asset, it automatically downloads and opens up in Photoshop.
