Before a new Design Services Manager joined Volac, their in-house design team used a network server to store all the digital assets. The speed of the server was very slow, and the structure of the filing system was cluttered. Moreover, other departments within the company didn’t have access to the server, which made file search and communication quite inefficient. Another problem was the lack of a single structured storage space for all the design work being produced — mainly, to report to the management on the progress.
Due to Swivle’s unlimited cloud storage and a “bulk upload” functionality, the team was able to migrate around 60,000 files from their legacy server — now with a clear folder structure and meta-tagging. The company holds 7 Content Manager licenses to upload, edit, manage and share files, plus there are also 20 people from other departments with the access type of Content Users. This broad access to the assets throughout the company has significantly increased the visibility and proven value of the work done by the in-house design team — which is one of the most important benefits of implementing Swivle. Swivle also met Volac’s requirement to move their file management to the cloud to improve overall efficiency.
"Swivle has instantly made a huge impact to the visibility and accessibility of our studio assets throughout the business"
