MerlinOne overview

MerlinOne is a digital asset management platform designed to help enterprises organize, collaborate and share all their media assets such as photos, video files, graphics and PDFs in a quick and efficient way. While MerlinOne is currently used by multiple large enterprises and nonprofit organizations, their cloud-based software is scalable and configurable for SMBs as well.

MerlinOne offers media management tools to support any company that handles numerous media objects, such as news media enterprises, universities, and corporate marketing departments. As a hosted digital management solution, MerlinOne provides a fast and central access point for enterprises to manage and share media objects for marketing, distribution, branding and fundraising campaigns.

With the MerlinOne DAM system, users can manage thousands of media objects, use fast, precise search tools, import RAW camera files and create flexible drag and drop workflows. MerlinOne also includes an innovative feature which enables users to search audio and video objects by the spoken word, thereby improving the efficiency with which users manage media data by reducing the manual search time on objects. As well as speech-to-text searching, other MerlinOne features include Adobe integration and social media content exportation where users can upload text, pictures and videos directly to their Facebook, Twitter or Youtube account. Further to being an efficient media management tool, the MerlinDAM system is also easily configurable and flexible, allowing users to access content globally from any web browser.

Merlin allows us to easily share photo assets with our network of Habitat affiliates in the U.S., and with our national organization offices in more than 70 countries. My favorite tool is the ability to share email previews of contact sheets containing links to directly download images. That gives us the ability to share collections of photos directly with our clients, without having to upload files to Dropbox. That’s a huge time saver for our team. I also can’t say enough about their amazing customer service. They quickly respond to our questions, and the available training helps us get the most out of the service.

Able to customize metadata fields, including their values and the way the field functions.It is continuously improving, and I believe the staff and their interest in my feedback and recommendations. They really do try to create a product that fits their users' needs. I like that a lot of the features and tools are customizable, and can be enabled or disabled granularly based on user or user group.

We were one of the first nonprofits that MerlinOne took on, allowing us to get a huge amount of digital content off our file server and into a robust DAMS system that could help us track and share assets across three continents.If you can do a Google search, you can search Merlin with little additional training. The interface is very user-friendly, and we have trained multiple staffers with varying levels of computer skills.

MerlinOne is our archive of published stories, and photographs as well as PDFs of our pages - which are fully searchable.Simple setup for files and metadata, and our librarian can dump content to Merlin in a single system. It's easy to set up and easy to make configuration changes, and the FTP hot folder is trouble free.

A simple way for customers to look at and review their tearsheets. We have saved money by no longer printing extra copies of ads and mailing them to the customer. The tearsheets are available more quickly than they would have been with mail.This is a very easy system to use. The documentation is complete and helpful. The support is wonderful and always provides quick, accurate responses.
