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

Elvis FEEDBACK

See above.

Pros

Tagging and filtering the items is a great tool. Possibility to storage lots of materials of any kind. Possibility to create instant shareable links. The procedure of creatin new users is easy and simple.

Cons

- The main filters selected inside the Client pro should be visibile also from the brand portal, while at the moment the filters part of the brand portal works randomly. - Sometimes the action of selecting more items does not work all the time. - When you tag many items, at the beginning the system seems to have included all the filters and tagging, but if you log-in the following day, you may realize that many items lost their tags. - When you open the brand portal, people should not see the latest items uploaded, but only the main categories on the left menu.

Reasons for Switching to WoodWing Assets

The previous system was old and inefficient.

Cost-effective & scalable digital asset management system

WoodWing Assets provides us scalable yet cost effective digital asset management solution.

Pros

WoodWing Assets is the most cost effective digital asset management solution that enables work collaboratively on the same digital assets with its great Adobe InDesign integration.

Cons

Direct integration with Digital Ocean is missing although there already is integration with Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services.

Reasons for Choosing WoodWing Assets

The complete Adobe InDesign integration of WoodWing Assets was the key factor in our decision.

Reasons for Switching to WoodWing Assets

WoodWing Assets has an excellent Adobe InDesign integration

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.

Solution closest to our needs

Reasons for Switching to WoodWing Assets

We switched in 2016 from MediaLibrary to Elvis because the previous solution was created in 2004 and was not open to do new developments, to comply to our advanced needs.
