If you're working with tons of files and different types of files and you have to keep them sorted out and be able to tell the differences within the files...this is the best option for you. It will make your life so much easier being able to preview everything quickly while seeing the small details. I do know that some photographers are really happy with how Lightroom catalogs their images, but I think for anyone doing major compositing or video work, Bridge is hands down the way to go. It just saves you so much time and headaches.

Although the Analytics part is already available it could be improved. So for now Allocadia is very recommended if you are looking for a data maintenance software but less appropriate as a analysis tool. Ask yourself what is it you are looking for (analysis or controlling) and for which purposes (management level or specialists). The costs are very resonable and an absolute Plus!

Pros
Adobe
  • User friendly.
  • Works well in combination with it's other adobe products.
  • Like that's it's included in the cost of Creative Cloud.

  • The user interface is clean, well-thought out, and easy for marketers to use. It behaves like their spreadsheets in all the right ways...without the baggage of having budgets locked into separate spreadsheets.
  • Allocadia knows that revenue attribution is important, and has great out-of-the-box adapters to flow actual spend and actual performance in to the tool.
  • The reporting engine is both substance and style. Data is accurate, can be sliced-and-diced, and is easy for marketers to get what they want in an ad hoc fashion, if a canned report does not already exist. The visuals are also excellent, which promotes the use of analysis.

Cons
Adobe
  • User interface could be more friendly--currently it has a very techy feel
  • Sometimes it’s a bit slow to load the program initially

  • Integrate the marketing department closer to the other companies departments output.
  • Connect to more markets for customer acquisition and care as well as customer satisfaction and experience enhancements.
  • We think it can get even closer to SAP Marketing Cloud at less investments and more ROI.

I am hesitant to comment on renewal in detail because we haven't been using the system for very long. But I am encouraged by the speed and ease of implementation, and look forward to getting to know the system better.

We have just used Bynder for some time but when we compared its performance with Uptempo we instantly knew it was superior in most of the aspects. It had better data analysis accurate reports and helped us track and manage our budget, so overall we were really happy with Uptempo.

Return on Investment
Adobe
  • It's saved me probably thousands of hours at this point. I used to spend so much time looking for different files and now I can find them all quickly.
  • I can now decide which are the 15 images I will deliver from a portrait session within 10 minutes. It used to take me around an hour to open them each up and start deciding.
  • I quit negatively speaking to myself for misnaming files and then never being able to find them.
  • I only complain about Adobe Bridge when it doesn't work with a firewall and I have to turn it off or restart my computer.

  • We have been able to more effectively look at our buys and see how they are performing on an ROI basis. Previously our spend data and leads were in two different places but this has allowed us to combine them.
  • We have only been in the software for five months so I think we will continue to see the ROI impact as we build out reports. Right now we're still trying to find the reports that will help us the most in our optimization.
