San Francisco, CA January 5, 2009- SeeFile Software, the leading developer of affordable DAM (digital asset management) software for sharing media files, is announcing Release 4.6 of its product at a press conference at MacWorld Expo this week. SeeFile is exhibiting at MacWorld booth S-2612, South Hall.
Digital asset management systems, also known as Media Asset Management (MAM) systems, allow a range of collaborative workflows between creative professionals and their customers. While very powerful, these systems have traditionally been complex to implement.
SeeFile solves this problem by providing pre-installed bundles of hardware and software that can be installed as easily as any networked computer. Because SeeFIle 4.6's DAM features allow improved communication between creative pros and their clients, there is usually a direct and measurable return on investment.
Finally, starting February 2009 SeeFile will release the first complete collaborative digital asset management solution as a web service. Users can start out trying the Web solution at a very modest cost (under $50 per month) and graduate to the bundles at their own site when their needs require it.
SeeFile 4.6 leverages the new Macintosh hardware and unique capabilities of Apple's Mac OSX software platform to deliver a simple, elegant tool for client communication. Administrative tools are included that simplify creation of users accounts and management of approval workflows. New features in Version 4.6 include a more intuitive user interface compatible with all modern web browsers, automated notifications of new or changed files, improved administrative control over users and groups, and extended support for a wide range of file types including PDFs, graphic files and videos.
One user of the software, Igor Perchuk, president of Image Source Productions, has been able to replace both clumsy FTP transfers and limited email attachments with SeeFile. "My customers are able to review and download proofs if I allow them to, upload their own graphical files to the same folders, and communicate approvals with a click. It's a phenomenal way to handle a range of client communication issues that in the past, have really limited small graphic firms like mine. I've been looking for something like this for years."
Pricing and Availability
SeeFile 4.6 is priced from $499 to $4,995, depending on the number of user licenses. Complete bundled server starting at $1, 495. The hosted Web service will be available starting in February 2009 at several pricing tiers, starting at under $50 per month.
