Turbo-charge your Creative Workflow with iMediaflow®’s Version Control

Introduction

The pace of change is faster than ever before. In order to stay ahead of the competition, media and creative teams need to be more efficient and produce more high-quality work. A creative file can go through many different versions before it is approved for publication. This creates a storage problem when the number of files starts to get out of control and not being able to identify or track the individual version files.

 

Is locating and retrieving the correct version of a creative file often feel like a wild goose chase?

No worries!! Our powerful Version Control feature – makes it easier for your Creative Team easily access the right version at the right time, no matter where they are in the Creative Workflow.

 

Creative Workflow management software offers great benefits to media and creative teams

In a business environment, it is crucial to ensure that your content remains consistent and up to date. iMediaflow® offers a fully integrated solution for managing media assets, providing your team with a central hub that allows you to view all versions of a file in one place. This means that you can track changes made during the design process and review these changes before they are published on any external platforms such as websites or apps.

The powerful version control system will allow you to:

    • Keep track of the development of each project by keeping an eye on its progress at any time while ensuring all files are up-to-date
    • Maintain a clear overview of all versions so no one makes unnecessary mistakes when choosing the correct version to use in a project

 

Creative teams need to be more efficient and produce more high-quality work, A creative file can go through many different iterations before it is approved for publication. This creates a storage problem when the number of files starts to get out of control.

The problem is that when a creative file goes through many different versions, it becomes difficult to keep track of what each version does. The team needs to be able to find the right file quickly and easily so that they can focus on their work instead of hunting through sets of files.
