Imagine working on a big project. A glossy magazine layout in InDesign or an important sales presentation in Keynote. You want to work without any interruptions or tedious tasks that will keep you from completing the assignment at hand. This includes losing time when searching, downloading and uploading digital assets – and keeping track of their versions, while doing the job.
With our latest Elvis DAM product feature we’ve kept this user behaviour in mind. Our efforts have gone to selecting and building product functionality we believe is important for an intuitive user experience. We thought about how users - you - behave when working with digital assets, as well as what tasks you frequently administer. One of them was quickly editing files in any desktop application you may have installed.
Why is it called the Elvis Creative Connector?
It’s called the Creative Connector because it does just that - it supports the creative process by connecting the various apps you use on your desktop with the files you store in Elvis DAM. With media companies like publishers, brands, agencies and corporations having growing software ecosystems, incorporating a smooth workflow in the creative process for increased productivity is important.
What does the Elvis Creative Connector do?
You don’t have to manually save digital files locally to your desktop anymore to be able to edit them. We’ve cut out the time it takes to explicitly download and upload digital assets back into your DAM solution, by developing this feature that automatically opens files in their default application. For example, a .psd file will directly open in Photoshop and a .docx file will open in Microsoft Word. Changes and edits to those files will automatically be saved back into the DAM system as a new version, when hitting the “Save” button in your desktop application.
