Brandworkz, the brand management and digital asset management software company today announced that it has launched software version 8.0. This is a major release including a completely overhauled digital asset management (DAM) module with a brand new, desktop-like user interface.
“We are very excited to share our biggest release to date with our clients. The aim is to enhance user experience in line with the first of the Brandworkz company values ‘striving for simplicity’. The redesigned DAM module and new user interface allow client users to interact with their assets more intuitively and more quickly. Users will notice a number of improvements in the look and feel and in how they perform tasks.” says Hari Walters, Head of Product at Brandworkz.
The user interface is cleaner, images and folders are shown as larger thumbnails and new icons have been introduced based on those we are used to seeing on our desktops. Actions like right-clicking to reveal menus, multi-select, drag and drop, opening multiple tabs in the same view and quick sharing are just some of the changes to the front end of the Brandworkz platform.
In order to keep the Brandworkz interface as simple as possible, the Actions in the toolbar only show up when you can actually use them.
For example, if you click on one or more assets, the actions you can perform will appear in the toolbar such as sharing, add to album, edit metadata, move and delete (dependent on your permission levels). If you have not selected any assets, only the standard Actions, download and upload will show as available.
