Marshaling available resources
The figure below depicts key dimensions of strategy, emphasizing how CMOs formulate strategy for an integrated system where each element interacts and affects all other elements of the system.
Integration with stock image repository enable immediate acquisition of approved products and eliminates redundant expenses
An enterprise DAM supports the integration with external stock images. This can include on-demand purchases of curated, pre-approved collections held at external stock image vendors. The table below depicts the activity-based data and estimated cost savings from automating this single activity.
Storing your files in our digital asset management solution Elvis DAM for easy retrieval is one, but it gets really interesting by the time you pull them out again for reuse or further updating.
The process of ‘taking’ the image from Elvis DAM is called ‘checking out’. It’s an indication to other users of the system that the file is in use and cannot be edited at that time by anyone else. Putting it back in and releasing the lock obviously is called ‘check in’.
With the latest Elvis DAM releases (4.5, 4.6 and also Elvis 5.0), a number of great improvements have been made in exactly this area. Instead of just checking out the file, you can now immediately open it with the default application, as specified by your Operation System. Plus, a brand new blow-your-socks-away Adobe InDesign plugin takes the check out/in process to the next level.
All this helps to go far beyond the current Adobe Drive integration, plus the new features also deliver file transfers that are up to 5 times faster and are super stable when compared to the previous solution.
This is how the new Adobe InDesign plugin for Elvis appears, just log in and it's working for you...
