The detailed reporting information will make it easier for admin staff to understand how their system is being used and to demonstrate the ROI
Northampton, UK (PRWEB UK) 2 February 2015
Extensis® today announced new updates to Extensis Portfolio™, a modular digital asset management (DAM) system that makes DAM affordable for companies of all sizes. Originally released in October 2014, Portfolio transformed the user experience with suggested, guided search capabilities, millisecond results powered by Elasticsearch® technology, a sleek new user interface and elegant thumbnail views.
Today’s release of version 1.5 builds on this experience, adding full compatibility with Apple® OS X® Yosemite (v10.10) and advanced reporting options. Responding to customer interest in learning more about how their files are being used, Extensis built in new reporting options that provide valuable data such as file usage data (who downloads files and when) and which assets are most downloaded. Reports can be exported, allowing companies to track assets, analyse usage trends and focus their creative team’s time where it matters most.
“As anyone who has ever deployed a DAM system will tell you – Gaining user acceptance is key to the success of the project” said Richard Bamford, EMEA Business Director at Extensis. “The detailed reporting information will make it easier for admin staff to understand how their system is being used and to demonstrate the ROI”
Additionally, Extensis has extended the power of Elasticsearch technology to Portfolio NetPublish®, delivering results at the same lightning fast pace in Portfolio’s web portal.
Version 1.5 also bolsters Portfolio’s overall processing power, with added features that increase the efficiency of importing, copying, updating, converting and exporting assets.
Richard Bamford added that “another challenge with any DAM system is managing the users’ expectation to expect search results quickly” and that “Portfolio doesn’t disappoint in this respect- in fact it delivers results so quickly it’s faster than you can think”.
