Our creative and marketing department consists of several team members with various roles in the organization and process. We receive creative requests from the program managers and other marketing specialists daily. Lytho helps us keep track of all of these projects while listing due dates, proofing dates, completion dates and has the ability for multiple reviewers to be added to the proofing routes. We're able to customize each proofing route to best suit each client. We also have the ability to add outside clients to the proofing routes, which makes the process much smoother. At times I'd say it is less appropriate for very small requests or projects that did not need to go through a full-blown proofing route.

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.

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.

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.

We currently use
for our final art file storage as well as a web dam for our art files, client files, client portals, etc.
and Lytho work seamlessly together in my personal opinion. So, the two should not be stacked against each other but moreso working in tandem.
does not have the ability to assign projects and/or proofing abilities.

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
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.
