University shares how they use digital asset management to gain efficiencies and make the most of their digital content

Extensis Portfolio NetPublish, Portfolio’s module for quickly creating secure and dynamic websites for sharing assets

Extensis announced today that University College Birmingham (UCB) is using Extensis Portfolio and Portfolio NetPublish as their digital asset management solution.

With its origins dating back to the late nineteenth century, the University’s collection of digital assets soars in the thousands. Without a system in place, the institution was losing time and money trying to find and share digital assets across its departments. Finding a DAM system to centralise and distribute their assets became critical to UCB efficiency.

In a case study published today, UCB shares how their marketing department is using Extensis Portfolio to:

  • Centralise their entire digital asset collection
  • Catalogue and tag their assets in many different ways so they are easy to locate
  • Quickly inventory what assets they do and do not have, so they can identify where they are lacking in up-to-date images
  • Easily share digital assets with other departments on the web with Portfolio NetPublish, Portfolio’s module for quickly creating secure and dynamic websites for sharing assets

Since deploying Extensis Portfolio, UCB has saved countless hours by having a central location for storing and sharing its assets between departments. To learn more about UCB’s success with Extensis Portfolio, check out their case study here.

UCB is among hundreds of organisations using Extensis Portfolio to manage its digital assets. Customers in the UK include the Royal College of Art; Newcastle University or University of Glasgow, together with a high number of international institutions such as Yale University; Harvard Law School and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
