What is Digital Media Library software and who needs it?
Media library software is a digital asset management system that helps companies to organize and share rich media files publicly with external parties online. Your media asset library can be either made available to a wider public, or, alternatively, be fully or partially password-protected.
This may come in handy if you need to differentiate files for internal or external use, or create collections for different groups of external users. For instance, you can share learning materials with students of different courses, or, if you’re an agency, create separate password-protected media asset libraries for every client.
Benefits of Digital Media Library software
If your organization deals with a large number of rich media files, such as images, video and audio files, presentations, briefings, sales and marketing collateral, you inevitably face the problem of organizing them properly, preferably on an external and affordable cloud-based hosting platform.
But you also need to search for files quickly, as well as manage user permissions, edit and control versions and share files easily via links. Yet you also need your media library to look like your own company’s website, not some external platform...
Swivle Digital Media Library software addresses all of those needs!
100% in the cloud
Swivle’s media library solution is web-based. It’s in the cloud and available online from anywhere in the world. Tech-savvy people call it SaaS (Software As A Service).
Swivle adds metadata to your assets to improve file search capabilities. Basically, this is information about your file, such as date, name and file type. More importantly, you can add custom metadata such as keywords.
Swivle’s media library system allows you to manage user permissions and restrict access to media portals by setting a password. It means you can define who is able to upload, view, edit or just download files.
Using Swivle, you can customize the look and feel of your media library by applying your company’s logo and colors, so your external users will experience your fully branded media library, not ours.
Easy upload and sharing
Swivle allows you to upload files one by one or in batches, and share files in seconds via share links.
Swivle’s media library software offers unlimited storage and infinite scalability. It means you can manage as many assets and have as many users as you need. Moreover, you can integrate Swivle with your favorite applications using our Swivle API.

What our users say about us
"We compared many different Digital Asset Management systems and Swivle was the most flexible solution at a very reasonable cost and easy to set up. You can start using it within a day, not within weeks like with other DAMs."
Martin Dominik Zemp, Editorial Staff Member - Entlebucher Anzeiger
"We use Swivle to archive all our digital files in the cloud. And we don't have to worry about backups."
Stefan Donné, Digital Retoucher - TwentyTen
"We've used lots of different options for our storage needs and they have all been too expensive, slow, inaccessible or lousy user experience. Before we switched to Swivle, the organization of our more than 150,000 files was nightmarish. Now, it's easy."
Andrew Jason, Editorial Director - Spotlight Media
"Before we introduced Swivle, we used Google Drive but it turned out to have loads of visibility and access control issues, and was too costly to manage. Swivle solved most of those issues."
Sushant Ajnikar, Creative Head - Curefit
"I have evaluated 4-5 different DAM solutions but Swivle is by far the most complete one. Low starting cost and easy to add on users and features as you go makes it perfect for an evolving business. The Brand Portal, ability to send upload requests and tag images is great."
Fredrik Nelson, Chief Information Officer - Stenströms
"Does everything I need and is faultless in its delivery. Increases my productivity both in the office and anywhere I am in the world."
Nick Sugg, Design Services Manager – Volac International Ltd
"I like the visual format of this software so it's easy for the end user to find files and references when digging for information. My team has been working on Swivle and really enjoy the ease of uploading and tagging."
Spencer Bagley, Marketing Project Manager - Unicity
