WoodWing Assets has been used by our whole company for over 5 years. It allowed us to centralise all our digital files into a single repository, for all our team to access, based on their permissions. It cut down significant time searching for files, contracts, documents and media assets as they are now all accessible to everyone in our company. We also migrated to the Cloud, thus eliminating the multiple on-premise servers and storage places where we previously kept all our digital files. Sharing files is incredibly easy now, with no more 3rd part file sharing sites, as well as the ability to fully control the actual share link.
Our marketing team also know which is the latest version of a file and which images have been approved for use, by simply looking at the status.
Due to the massive power behind the searching, we no longer have to comply with very specific naming conventions on the names of our files, and we also don't have to save versions with their Version Number, thus eliminating the multiple version issues experienced by most companies.
  • Searching for files is incredible powerful and quick
  • Sharing files both internally and externally is easy
  • Automatic version control on digital files is great
  • Indexing of text on all digital files is incredible
  • Metadata fields in excess of 550 standard (out the box) with unlimited custom fields
  • More granular workflow (status changes are good, but could be better)
  • Detailed analytics on actual asset usage, is good, but could be better
  • A dashboard for reporting and analytics would be a huge bonus
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.
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.

For the short term the CDN by WoodWing/Elvis has helped us improve loadtime speeds while also improving our SEO efforts. The organized layout of the dashboard with detailed metadata makes working with many assets very efficient. If you are on a tight budget I wouldn't recommend using WoodWing Elvis DAM, and would suggest trying out a solution like Cloudinary or Amazon AWS. In today's world the faster cheaper CDN solution provider will be key in the coming future with a majority of customers turning towards mobile devices for browsing our website.
  • Faster Load Times
  • Improves your SEO efforts by decreasing browser load times
  • Saves your server resources by caching assets
  • 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
I like the organized user interface/dashboard that WoodWing provides for their CDN solution. Being able to provide user access and control what they can do permissions wise makes the process very easy to manage. Managing a team of 5+ designers can get hectic at times and this helps solve that issue. The speed of the Elvis CDN servers were on par if not faster than the other CDN solution providers out there and our website load time went from 5.0 seconds to fully load down to 2.8 which was a drastic savings. I dislike the price point that they offer as there are cheaper CDN alternatives out there. Such as Cloudinary or even Amazon's AWS depending on your overall needs. The dashboard is not as easy or simplistic as other CDN alternatives but it does get the job done of delivering assets in a timely manner.
