“We believe that digital asset management should be easy to implement and shouldn’t require fundamental changes to the way people work. DAM should work for you, not the other way around. With Portfolio Server 11, Extensis has made DAM even easier.”
Northampton, UK (PRWEB UK) 2 April 2013
Extensis announced today the immediate availability of Portfolio Server 11, its latest Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution that enables organisations with large collections of rich media files to have DAM on their terms. Boasting powerful new features such as a web client which can be branded with the organisation’s logo and colours, and Amazon Electric Compute Cloud™ (EC2) support, Portfolio Server 11 lets users adapt the solution to their specific needs. As one of the industry’s leading DAM servers, Portfolio Server 11 includes robust iPad and video capabilities, offering instant access to digital media with streaming HD video playback and video conversion for tablets, mobile devices and the web.
With advanced cataloguing and search capabilities, Portfolio Server 11 users are primed to save thousands annually with significant time savings.
According to Davin Kluttz, Director of Product Strategy at Extensis, “On average, Portfolio Server users report saving two and a half hours per employee per week. That adds up to on average $3000 in savings per employee annually. In multi-user environments, that makes a major impact on the bottom line.”
Extensis Makes DAM Work for Customers
Portfolio Server 11 is quick to set-up, easy to use, cost effective and involves little IT support or training, making DAM approachable for companies and workgroups of all sizes. Its robust features can scale to meet the needs of large enterprises, including a built-in API that integrates the solution with other business systems, while offering the simplicity and affordability that smaller organisations require.
Kluttz noted: “We believe that digital asset management should be easy to implement and shouldn’t require fundamental changes to the way people work. DAM should work for you, not the other way around. With Portfolio Server 11, Extensis has made DAM even easier.”
