Meets all project management needs of an animation studio

2020-12-29

Bynder is the platform where we manage our animation projects and meets our project management requirements in a perfect way so far except reporting tool.

Pros

Bynder is the most user-friendly and easy to use project management platform with its relative extensive features such as video brand studio, workflow manager and digital asset management infrastructure.

Cons

Although in overall Bynder is the most user-friendly and easy to use project management platform, it is hard to say that reports tool is that much user-friendly and sufficient to reflect all required statistical data.

Upgrade your DAM Experience

2019-01-10

Specifically, we are pleased with the interface, the support, and the granular customizability.

Pros

WebDAM is very intuitive and helped to modernize our Asset Management Experience.

Cons

Webdam needs a bit of a UX upgrade. The software reflects a bit of a dated feel.

Intuitive and easy of use

2021-11-09

Overall, I really like the way it's setup, and the flexibility you have to customize the product for your brand. We've done away with network folders, we've made more people self sufficient.

Pros

I like the lack of folder structure, this combined with a good taxonomy, you'll find what you need in seconds.

Cons

The stability and lack of customization of the Analytics. The rest are just some small issues.

2018-12-17

Pros

Their API is also really easy to use with plenty of options to integrate your third party tools.

Still the number one DAM out there

2021-11-23

The Digital Brand Templates modules has saved our designers hundreds of hours in making small changes to copy, sizing and for localisations.

Pros

Phenomenal user interface and usability and very flexible content creation tools and integrations make Bynder the best DAM I have seen out there.

Cons

Nothing is currently missing from our use case.

Solid Product, Good Price

2011-04-20

Based on what they promise (and actually deliver!!), they have proven themselves to be the best value out of the systems we evaluated.

Pros

We reviewed a handful of online digital asset management tools on behalf of one of our clients (a destination management organization).

Cons

Back end interface is a bit arduous - it's easy to use, but takes a little time to figure out where things are.

Much Potential but a Little Ways To Go

2017-04-13

I am a big fan of the User Interface and the familiarity of the platform since it is much like shutterstock in terms of dashboard. However certain features have been wonky and other features that feel like should be their out of the box may lack at times.

Pros

Clean modern and present day looking interface. Very similar to stock websites creating a familiar environment in which to browse.

Cons

The process to import large quantity of data and tagging them is a Herculean effort.

Intuitive system -works great.

2018-07-12

It's much easier for sales reps to find the content they need, rather than asking me for files multiple times per day.

Pros

It is very easy to find what you need, and it's really easy to train new employees on it - I basically tell them it's like searching on Amazon.

Cons

I suppose that's the case with any digital asset management system, though.

WebDAM at JSU

2010-02-26

Highly recommended. Great people to deal with, responsive to customer needs and appear to be constantly working to improve the product.

Pros

Admin tools are well designed. Easy to get images uploaded and managed.

Cons

Other storage-only solutions are available at much cheaper costs, but nothing that offers a true data management solution with security of off-site storage and web based access like WebDAM.

Great experience

2019-01-11

Bynder is an upgrade to the old asset management system we were using.

Pros

It is very smart and end users have all be very pleased/enthusiastic about it.

Cons

This isn't necessarily a con about Bynder but asset management is very time-consuming and few companies have the staff to commit to the work it takes.

Easy place-it, easy find-it.

2017-04-11

WebDam is very friendly user. We have a multitude of users from various groups with different needs and capabilities. WebDam allows us to put security in place so we do not share our intellectual properties with just everyone.

Pros

Drag and drop to upload assets

Cons

The assets needs to stay in there until they are downloaded from the people we share with but WebDam wont alert us when the files are actually downloaded by the end user.

Thanks Brigitte! Glad to see Webdam is helping you keep your content secure.

Regarding your feedback on lightboxes, have you tried watching those particular assets or checking the download reports? If neither accommodate to your workflows, contact your CSM for additional help.

Great product, excellent people!

2011-12-21

This is a DAM excellent product and is supported by a fantastic, responsive DAM staff. I highly recommend working with the folks at WebDAM for anyone interested in sustainably managing, or wanting to improve access to, their collection of digital materials! P.S. a small note about (webdam)/admin/keywords.php: "A keyword list enforces consistently throughout your asset library. By using a keyword list, your administrators will be presented with the list to choice from when adding keywords from the Edit Captions page. If you had previously uploaded a keyword list, you will have the option to append your new keywords or replace the previous list.(Seperate keywords and phrases by comma and/or a newline)" *consistently = consistency *choice = choose *Seperate = Separate *newline = new line

Pros

This system has everything we were looking for in a Digital Asset Management system.

Cons

Sometimes it's too many clicks from here to there, sometimes it's just not easy to find the function: in training I've conducted thus far, I have had 3 people ask "How do I move files around? Can I drag and drop?"

Excellent Asset Manager

2019-01-10

Pros

The custom API abilities are very nice too.

Cons

The biggest downside to me is that if a feature is not working properly, like default sort order not saving for half our users, the solution has to be voted on to be determined important enough to be worked on.

Functionality vs Speed

2018-12-17

We are using Bynder as a digital assets manager to share images, campaign tools, and videos to our internal teams, dealers, distributors, and media associates.

Pros

I have grown to like Bynder's filter system and understand its power in finding assets quickly.

Cons

Setting up permission levels and functionality is a real chore. Maybe it is our needs, but the initial setup was not well-explained.

An amazing product for our needs

2011-04-07

Ease of use and flexibility to accommodate many different needs within the one DAM is the reason to buy. If you need a DAM, get this one.

Pros

Uptime is great, user ease is fantastic. Admin php is simple, powerful, flexible. Adaptability to different users's needs is very high. FTP is super fast. Customer support is simply excellent.

Cons

Some cross-browser issues (uploads via drag-n-drop in Firefox on a Mac).

WebDAM Review

2011-12-20

Overall I would and do highly recommend WebDAM.

Pros

The customizable users accounts have allowed flexibility in expanding our users to international field offices.

Cons

There are some limitations in the back-end/Admin mode with image organization and management. More flexibility in ordering and re-ordering assets and folders, including moving assets as well as ease of batch tagging/captioning.

Pros

Very useful for the university. Easy to use and download photos, and search functions are straightforward.

Or having reports that show data within a specified time period.

Built For Sucess

2017-03-29

Bynder's DAM module empowers our marketers to be able to find things on their own, see the brand guidelines, and know what is already "brand approved" in one place.

Pros

With one central location for people to find files, guidelines, images and inquire about projects, we are much more efficient in providing people what they need, and ensuring brand compliance.

Cons

I wish the workflow tool integrated better with the DAM.

Very versatile DAM solution

2016-11-22

Bynder has a strong focus on customer experience and communication and really making sure you are getting the product that works best for your needs with project managers really taking their time to understand your company and being able to offer solutions (or at least tweak off-the-shelf solutions) to fit your needs.

Pros

Versatility

Cons

Graphic design adjustments do take some time and templates should be a little more customisable and tweakable.
