A seamless workflow ultimately comes down to a synchronized tech stack. Learn how the PhotoShelter for Brands DAM platform synchronizes seamlessly with your team’s marketing operations and creative tools to help you all work smarter, not harder.
If you ask any working person today what their main pain point is, they will probably say: working efficiently and staying focused.
These commonly cited issues amongst teams often mean they have a disorganized workflow and a lack of teammate accountability. Oftentimes, project management is up to individual teammates to use whichever task management platforms or apps they’re used to using, but that leads to siloed deliverables and no project-wide transparency.
Finding a solution isn’t the hard part, choosing one is.
There are so many ways for teams to manage their workflows today—whether it be through a software solution, a digital platform, or an app. Every SaaS (software as a service) product marketed today promises exactly what teams need: increased productivity, true project transparency, and analytics to help you measure both the platform and your team’s effectiveness.
So, how do you choose a platform that centralizes everyone’s workflow? Finding a solution that centralizes your entire organization’s work might take some time, but the return on the investment will be beyond worth it.
The first step: Survey the members of your team to understand what other platforms or apps they use to complete their work.
Having a smart, sustainable, optimized tech stack enables creative teams to seamlessly access their assets, create original content, save it, and share it easily.
Read below how PhotoShelter for Brands Integrations connect interdepartmental processes and systems so organizations can bring their brand’s story to market faster.
Integrations Built to Level Up Your Marketing Operations
Collect, upload, and centralize your brand assets from consumer cloud-storage solutions into your PhotoShelter for Brands digital asset management library to keep an updated digital asset management content library.
Cloud storage services like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive allow team members and external contributors to transfer files quickly, and continuously, to keep your digital asset management library up to date.
Whether your creative contributors need to move files automatically from Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive to PhotoShelter on a regular basis, or you’ve outgrown cloud drive storage limits and need to do a one-time sync, you’ll be able to turn your manual file transfer process into an instant, automatic workflow with these platform integrations.
Wrike is a collaborative work management platform that helps teams increase productivity. With this integration, you’ll be able to make your approved creative work available to anyone who needs to use it quickly and easily. By setting up file transfer automation, approved images in Wrike can automatically be sent to your PhotoShelter media library, where your team can then browse, access, and share them.
