Extensis Unveils Portfolio Workflow Automation
Extensis has announced Portfolio Workflow Automation, a new solution for Extensis Portfolio that helps turn time-consuming digital asset management (DAM) tasks into automated workflows.
With DAM maturing as a system for storage and retrieval of digital media, the number of manual, tedious, and repetitive tasks is increasing, said Toby Martin, vice president of development and strategy at Extensis. The Portfolio Workflow Automation is aimed at helping organizations to automate these tasks, so they can save manual labor and ensure consistency and accuracy in business processes, Martin added.
Central to Portfolio Workflow Automation is Corbit, an automation engine. Developed and recently launched by Extensis’ partner Laidback Solutions AB, Corbit can automate many types of workflow in DAM or with adjacent systems. Users can easily set up triggers to activate tasks, such as retrieving assets from an FTP server, converting them to another format, saving them in a folder structure, emailing notifications, facilitating approvals, updating assets with metadata, or combining them all into a single process.
Whether working in Portfolio, Extensis’ core digital asset management solution, or using it with other business systems such as Universal Type Server, DAM system administrators can automate a series of tasks with an action, or have them triggered by a monitored system change.
