Dalet
When our library closed for Covid, we had to create systems that allowed for remote holds to be placed on items, which had never been utilized before. none of our staff was in the same area, so collaborating on the media storm we wanted to make took a lot of moving parts. We were able to work together to build a media blitz locally as well as create internal protocols with these tools.

Xinet is great for print marketing users that have a lot of copy in their artwork. Xinet is not especially useful for 3D artwork production.

  • Tracking rights-managed assets. Xinet provides advanced features such as watermarking and expiration notifications.
  • Integration with Adobe. Xinet can be configured to access assets from right within the apps.
  • Desktop integration. Xinet can be accessed by the browser but also as a mountable server volume on the desktop. Unlike Box, Dropbox, etc., the mounted volume does not require consumption of hard drive space.

  • For my position, I didn't learn enough of Xinet to truly utilize the whole program, only one or two people in my department understood it inside and out.
  • During my time at the agency, we were unable to get the annotations to work on assets. And that would have been helpful to have to streamline our process of asset quality control.

Xinet is intuitive to use. It is perhaps the only DAM that features a traditional mounted volume, so anyone working in an environment with local servers will love it. Search is accurate and faceted searches allow users to narrow search results. Setup requires a lot of training if you want to leverage all of its complex workflow capabilities.

Support is handled by third-party server integrators. Our partner, NAPC, has always been there when we've needed them and also develops unique plugins to expand XInet's capabilities.

Alternatives Considered

I love the deep functionality of Adobe's suite, but it suffers from being app-driven and localized. This has always hampered me even when I'm not dealing with covid problems. The web functionality of Dalet really set it apart from everything else we used in on-the-go abilities. If we didn't have this, I don't think our Covid policies would have worked and gotten buy-in from the community.

We selected Xinet based on having a large number of potential users and wanted unlimited web seats. Paying a one time software fee versus a monthly seat payment was a big draw. Telescope was four to five times more expensive and was not feasible at the time. We liked Basecamp but we needed a local solution for storage, not hosted.

Xinet is a great platform to build off of. We use it in combination with Enfocus Switch which has greatly improved the automation capabilities and we use Xinet as the portal for external users. Our internal users very rarely interact with the Xinet GUI.
