Creative Solutions for Creative Clients

Asset Finder

Do you wish you had a nickel for each time you were asked for a logo?

Do you need to reformat a requested asset to fit the requester’s format need? Have you ever wished you could locate the asset used in a job from two years ago?

  • 65% Reduction in Administrative Tasks
     

These are the types of needs we hear from customers every day. Access controlled, metadata rich asset management is a must in today’s creative world. Too much precious time is spent searching for assets, and/or supplying assets to others who should be able to easily download it on their own - and frankly they want to do it themselves!

Asset Finder lets you repurpose images, logos, artwork, videos, and advertising files without the administrative burden on creative teams.

Asset Finder eliminates many of the tasks faced by the creative staff once a design is in production. Generating formats commonly needed as the digital assets are published in Asset Finder makes them available to employees and vendors online, in the form needed. Creative teams no longer carry the burden of disseminating files, allowing you to focus on the creative tasks at hand. As an added service, WBD will work with clients to organize existing assets into feasible hierarchies and perform a batch upload of assets into the new structure. This includes determining which metadata can be automatically extracted from assets during initial import into the system.
