Great option for nonprofits

2019-05-28

Before Swivle, the marketing team estimated a loss of 5 hours per week searching for assets living on 3 different servers and an undetermined number of Google Drives, Dropboxes, individual drives, etc.

Pros

Intuitive interface Compatible with all file types our team uses Preview and download in various pre-set sizes Drag-and-drop uploads Customizable metadata input Excellent filtered search tool - quickly find the ideal assets for every project - search tool even works within PDFs!

Cons

I found the initial plan/purchase options a little confusing, as far as how many seats we got for how much money. The final contract was very satisfactory, but it took awhile to get there.

Swivle is easy to use and offers a great range of useful functions.

2017-09-06

Easier to search and find the right files, also more efficient for different tasks.

Pros

We first purchased Swivle to organize our picture library, but now also use it for all the PDFs of our different publications, videos and for our freelancers to submit data to the editorial office.

Cons

There are different ways to set user rights and you can create groups and rules all of it can become a bit complicated and it's sometimes hard to actually look through.

Pros

Rules you can make for viewers in the management console.

Finally an affordable DAM solution with a sleek UI

2019-09-09

Pros

It's easy to use, easy to provide password-protected access to our front-facing library.

Cons

The organization of the management pannels and how to minimize them isnt as intuitive as Id like so it takes some learning to maximize screen size.

Works good for the price

2019-05-24

Pros

It's a lot easier for our sales reps to search for images by typing in a keyword instead of searching through a bunch of images.

Cons

I also would like the option to send links with expiration dates, and the ability to drag and drop images and other media directly into apps.

Thank you for your review! Creating share links with expiration dates and ingesting by drag and drop are already in place. We are also eager to learn what kind of easier way of download options you are envisioning. Please reach us out if you like a product demo or a call to discuss.

Excellent solution to manage, share and archive your digital files

2018-05-09

Pros

We are an agency of photographers in Argentina and we found in Swvile a definitive solution to archive, organize and share with our clients all our production of thousands of photographs as an image bank Exceeds extensively to all other file sharing services as its interface allows you to find and view files easily and quickly Another of its strengths are the tools to share and deliver your work with your clients through personalized portals It is also a great solution for people who want to have all their files online, organized and with easy access at any time and anywhere.

Cons

It can still improve its interface and some search tools like its filter system but I recognize that they are making adjustments permanently as they receive feedbacks

An intuitive cloud DAM where we manage all our creative assets

2017-09-06

Our small team consists of multiple external people, we don't share an office. Before we were always searching for files, and using file sharing services to transfer assets. Now everything is organized in 1 place. You can easily find the right files, and because it is in the cloud it is of course always available.

Pros

It's really easy to get started with Swivle, there is no big learning curve. The interface is easily understood.

Cons

The user interface is very easy, but the admin interface could be a bit simpler.

Really easy to use and low starting fee creates great value!

2018-05-18

An easy implementation and a quick ROI

Pros

Low starting cost and easy to add on users and features as you go makes it perfect for an evolving business. The Brand portal, ability to send upload requests and tag images is great.

Cons

Actually, I have found none so far. It´s working great and considering the features available that other DAM solutions only make available in their enterprise offerings, Swivle stands out.

We love it

2019-09-20

We use Swivle to provide marketing assets to our sales force, and as a home for our video and photography assets in house.

Pros

It’s flexible. We have a private collection of assets and public collection. Ease of use. Many non technical users on my team contribute assets and have no issues using the app. Value. Good value considering what you get with higher priced competitors. Service. I get the support I need and have had the opportunity to give input when testing enhancements.

Cons

It’s not as easily usable on mobile. Opportunity to enhance.

Simple, intuitive, powerful Digital Asset Management

2019-05-28

Can't really ask for a better DAM for the power and storage offered at the price. So many other competitors may have a massive suite of features, but they seem to want your soul in exchange. Swivle really just gives you what you need, and stays out of your way.

Pros

Don't need the folder browser or filter panel?

Cons

Most people think assets are high-res JPGs or TIFs, and that makes sense, but we often take a lot of behind-the-scenes iphone photos at shoots, and treat them as assets, and give agencies access to them for marketing and things.

2019-03-29

Pros

easy to learn, Allows us to organize and quickly find digital assets

Cons

. - InDesign integration that automatically connects to Swivle, instead of needing to manually reconnect assets every time. - InDesign asset reconnection where you can select individual assets in InDesign to connect to Swivle, instead of a blanket "connect all" option.

Swivle is a great way to organize & save high-quality photos! It's helped our organization out a lot

2018-05-17

Pros

I like how you can add tags to photos to make searching easier. I also like the collection function, so you can easily share photos with someone who does not have access.

I think the interface when viewing photos could be better.

The best experience for a photo server

2018-07-16

Pros

We're a media company, so the ability to organize our photos and have it easy for everyone on the team to access was a must.

Cons

Nothing at all. Maybe someway they can help us to bulk-tagging photos in our archives instead of having us going through manually of each photo.

Thanks for your kind words! It's much appreciated.

I would love to discuss your limitations on organising the files. I might be able to point out an existing way that could help you.

In June 2018 we will release Cloudfront Transfer Acceleration. This will significantly increase the upload speed, no matter where you are in the world.

We are a media company using Swivle for our daily editorial content online and our print content.

2018-05-17

Pros

It gives us a way to have users find images by typing a keyword instead of thumbing through hundreds of photos in dropbox that aren't organized in any way.

Cons

It should be able to search within all folders even if you have one folder selected.

Been looking for something like this for years!

2019-05-31

Pros

Coming across Swivle made all the difference and has sped up our team's productiveness immensely. It is easy to use and tag, then find what you need later.

Cons

It takes a lot of time to implement if you have a decent number of photos because you have to manually tag each one (unless it's tagged in the photos metadata).
