As a multi-team office, Overbury did not have a central library of photographic resources before they purchased OpenAsset. By integrating their new image management system with OpenAsset’s InDesign templating feature, they knew they would be able to use their digital assets to the maximum effect, quickly producing high quality, brand consistent case studies and tender documents.
- Create branded case studies & brochures instantly with InDesign integration
- Search & drag and drop supported for PDFs in addition to images
- Improved access to photographic resources across multiple office locations
We work hard to provide a marketing service that fits with how Overbury does business, so the InDesign case study templates we have developed with Axomic are based on real business needs. Before we had OpenAsset, the whole process was done manually. Now I can generate a case study in seconds – the images are already there, all the project data is already there. They are really quick to produce.
Once we had the case study design set up in InDesign I liaised with Axomic and we worked together on how it should be structured and where the information would come from in OpenAsset.
Before we had to keep resizing the images. Being able to draw off images which are the perfect size for a Powerpoint presentation saves us a huge amount of time.
When we generate new case studies in InDesign, we turn them into PDFs and upload them to the system. People can then just drag and drop them straight into their tender documents. It’s a massive benefit. If a case study needs to be tweaked for a particular tender, it can be downloaded and amended by the bid team while the original remains in the system.
Before we only had a very limited search function on our case studies, but now we can search quickly using the advanced search, sorting them by a particular industry or value range for example. The search terms people would use when compiling case studies for a tender had to be reflected in the project keywords. Each team is working on different tenders for different clients, so being able to do advanced searches to draw out the relevant experience is both useful and time saving.
We use Albums to share images internally, putting together our ideas, seeing how the images all look together and then refining them. Then we can give our external graphic designer remote access and share the Album with them too. The designer can access all the relevant content straight away.
I’ve always found the support department very helpful and responsive. They get back to you quickly and if they can sort it out, they will do.
