Asset Management


I spent a few hours this past week thinking about “the big picture” for my company. I decided to focus a good chunk of time this month on improving workflow and streamlining certain tasks and processes. One process that I am going to tackle is asset management. Our designers/clients send a barrage of email with large files attached, use my company FTP server to host them, or send them using third party file hosting services. While the files are sent and archived – there is no central place for them and I am constantly looking everywhere for them. After doing some quick research – I found “ResourceSpace which seems to do everything I am looking for:

  • Web interface
  • Create users and user groups
  • Search, tag, add meta data to assets
  • Theme the install (look and feel is very important to me)
  • Archiving
  • Auto thumbnail generation
  • Reporting

I will report back next week and let you know how it goes!

Almost Spring…

Since it seems like it is almost spring – I decided to do some grilling over the weekend and forgot to cover it. This morning I went out in the backyard and had a lovely reminder it is still very much winter. Perhaps I will cover up the grill again after everything melts 😉
