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.

WoodWing Assets work exceptionally well in companies where they have a large number of digital files, that they need to manage and search. Media, advertising and marketing companies benefit significantly when using Assets to manage their digital images, video and content as the most approved as well as latest versions are automatically kept of every digital file. Companies that have a small number of digital files, with probably less than 10 staff, probably don't need a system to manage their actual digital files, provided they are in a structured folder base, that everyone can access.

Read full review Faster Load Times Improves your SEO efforts by decreasing browser load times Saves your server resources by caching assets Read full review Cons User interface could be more friendly--currently it has a very techy feel Sometimes it’s a bit slow to load the program initially Read full review Can be a bit expensive when compared to other CDN alternatives such as AWS or Cloudinary Learning curve involved for the user interface/dashboards Lacks more advanced manipulation of assets that can be served dynamically Read full review Usability
It is incredibly easy. For an idea on the onboarding or training of a basic user, this is the only system we know of that training takes literally 1 hour, and the basic user is fully up to speed. Very intuitive user experience. Easy ability to share files (simply right click). Easy ability to search for all digital files, and even content within the digital files, if you cant remember what the file name was - just this feature alone saved us hours everyday

WoodWing support has been good, they do feedback quickly when reporting an issue and do keep you up to date with where they are in the process of resolving the support issue. The support team is knowledgeable and take the time to fully understand the issue. I do feel they should have an online support ability to assist with basic user issues, as opposed to having to log a ticket every time, but that would be the only reason I have not given them a 10.

Overall Elvis DAM is a great product although when you compare the solution to other providers of similiar asset CDNs such as Amazon's AWS,
it can get quite expensive. This is especially true if you have a team that is at the larger enterprise level in which case you are charged by the user.
Read full review Return on Investment 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.
