The customer chose to protect their confidential information
Andersen's customer, in this business case, is a US-based imaging and production studio. Their professional scope covers CGI, VFX, AR, VR, and more. As such, they work for their end clients by creating advanced, high-quality imagery of all kinds.
Andersen was approached as an IT vendor capable of implementing a digital asset management system for complex flows. Namely, our team assumed responsibility for an IT project that had been in progress for two years at that time.
Specifically, we developed an additional tool which integrated seamlessly with the existing complex automotive platform. The initiative was implemented from scratch by 10 specialists. Andersen initiated a Discovery phase followed by building an MVP and entering the post-MVP phase.
Before approaching our company, the customer set a truly ambitious goal. Their objective was to obtain a unified platform for content exchange with end clients. During the process, several challenges arose in a range of specific development aspects. In order to overcome them, the customer opted for outsourcing and entrusted their initiative to us.
The main project goal was to engineer a web app that would provide a means for reviewing digital assets thoroughly and quickly. Hence delivering them to end clients was expected to become possible in a clear and efficient way.
The previous business flow involved numerous manual operations – for example, circling issues in Adobe Acrobat and sending these notes out via messenger apps.
In addition to that, the review processes couldn't be initiated and executed automatically. This factor imposed redundant communication routines on the customer's administrators, as they had to act as intermediaries between artists and end clients, going back and forth with each iteration of the review and updates.
Thus, the system enhancement initiative was primarily focused on making it easier to leave comments and spot mistakes by making clear comparisons of different versions of the design.
Besides, system notifications were expected to be helpful in speeding up the review process by eliminating the time lag in communication.
This is how the resulting example of digital asset management systems looks and is used:
Next iterations (not implemented yet, but planned):
As a link between their end clients (i.e. vehicle manufacturers) and artists, the customer required a simple and efficient process for organizing the delivery and review of digital assets. The resulting new digital asset management system is a web app operated from PC workstations and laptops with an Internet connection.
This enables uploading digital assets, viewing with filtering and sorting options, internal and external reviews in rounds, and obtaining overview statistics of the review process. Unlike the previous system, which involved time-consuming and error-prone processes for reviewing digital assets and required artists to execute code to upload them, the new option is easy-to-use.
Wrapping up, the solution simplifies the process of digital asset upload, makes it possile to organize a transparent reviewing process by comparing different digital asset versions, and streamlines collaboration between artists and clients.
This is truly one of the best-in-class digital asset management examples in the modern tech landscape.
In order to ensure the achievement of all desired goals and the fulfillment of the agreed-upon requirements with a comprehensive and reliable solution, we created a new web-based platform from scratch. The platform is for admins, internal users, and clients, enabling a thorough and quick review of digital assets through a user-friendly, easy-to-use, and engaging interface (facilitating the identification of mistakes by enabling clear comparisons of different versions of the design).
The platform's structure includes:
The web-based platform facilitates:
The digital asset management software was developed to be extendable so that the system could be used for all future endeavors of the customer.
