North Plains, LLC , the leading provider of Digital Asset Management, today announced the immediately availability of TeleScope 9.0.1 which enables broader adoption of Digital Asset Management (DAM) across companies and their partners through new mobile and portal interfaces. By allowing more users across the extended organization to easily find and share the digital media needed for multi-channel campaigns, TeleScope 9.0.1 enables faster time-to-market, and more agile marketing campaign development.
“The trend towards more agency partners and simultaneous global marketing campaigns across multiple channels has made it essential for DAM to support more of the digital media lifecycle, including work-in-progress, across more partners,” said Arun Chandra, president and CEO of North Plains. “TeleScope 9.0.1 adds significantly to TeleScope 9’s ability to support creative operational excellence by enabling easy, secure access to digital media by mobile and new or infrequent users.”
Mobile DAM is becoming important for companies looking to manage the end-to-end digital media lifecycle from concept through distribution, and want to enable mobile and tablet users to effectively participate in media workflows. The new TeleScope for iPad app extends the management of digital media to participants of critical-path, away-from-the-office processes such as photo shoots, review and approval, partner collaboration, and customer meetings.
“The explosion in digital content has changed the enterprise landscape as end-users keep getting inundated with all types of content,” said Mukul Krishna, Global Director for Digital Media, Frost & Sullivan. “The urgency to access this flood of digital content anytime, anywhere and most importantly – on any device, all in an on-demand environment is becoming critical for companies that want to empower their knowledge workers and workflows with greatly agility and accelerated cycle times. North Plains’ Mobile DAM suite is a great example of how the industry is helping end-users meet this challenge.”
Successful global management of digital media – especially for work-in-progress with diverse partners – demands that infrequent or new users readily find, use and share digital assets. TeleScope’s new QuickFind interface provides a simplified portal experience that ensures any user can quickly engage with TeleScope to find the video, images, logos and other digital media they need to be productive. This is becoming increasingly important as more people – partners, multiple agencies, distributors and remote users – need secure access to corporate approved digital media.
Other enhancements for 9.0.1 include support for Oracle 11g, QuarkXPress 8.5 and 9.1 certifications, and a new preferences management approach that will greatly simplify managing global, distributed digital asset management deployments.
TeleScope 9.0.1 is immediately available for all customers.
