"Easy to Implement"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to implement Bynder within an organization. Tagging, uploading, and general set up is really straight forward especially with the help of the incredible team at Bynder.

What do you dislike?

I do wish there was a better (or included) way to build out a media page that you can easily send Media to. Something that is built out with your branding, and featured private collections for folks with the link.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend this software to other companies, as it was really easy (and quick) to implement. It will also save our department a lot of time and headaches when it comes to vouching for assets, making sure the correct assets are being used across all campaigns, and making sure we have the right information about certain assets.

One of the other really important features is the search bar. Currently, we don't have a way to search for our assets besides our folder structure--however if there are duplicates, misfiled photos, or folders that don't follow the current structure it gets hard to find that "one photo" people are looking for. Bynder saves us a lot of time by making it MUCH easier to find the particular photo you are looking for through tags and metadata.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had an issue with unapproved assets being used, and also assets being hard to find. It was left up to creative & project management to send (and re-send) assets over and over. So Bynder is giving us a way to easily approve and distribute assets within the company to cut down on time spent searching for them.

"Bynder has changed the way we work"

What do you like best?

Bynder is a helpful resource for keeping all digital assets in one place, online for staff members to use and easily shared outside the company. The Work Order section reduces cost and aids quality in our co-operation with our ad agency and has actually changed the way we work with our marketing material completly.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to find anything to dislike but of course there is always room to grow and the employees at Bynder really listen to what the customers have to say.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Prepare well and think about the taxonomy before importing assets. Learn from others and you can do that through the Bynder Champions program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Within a period of three months from beginning to use Bynder, we totally redefined our collaboration processes. The communication with our external ad agency was successfully moved to Bynder, removing ineffective email conversations and freeing more resources. Digital assets can now be easily shared with the smart collection functionality and we now have one centralized user-friendly platform to provide images of staff events and happenings all over the company—thereby improving company culture.

What Digital Asset Management solution do you use?

"A media library that simplifies asset finding and sharing"

What do you like best?

The system is intuitive and easy to use and the layout is clean and simple. The combination of custom filters and the search bar ensures that you can do a very targeted search. The fact that we can decide which filters are mandatory when a new asset is uploaded, is also very useful. In addition, we like the ability to include a pop-up copyright warning for copyrighted materials.

What do you dislike?

The system can be slow to load, which can be frustrating for users who have to do a lot of searches. The collection system could be improved to be more easy to understand and to see the benefit of it. Many of our users struggle with using them effectively, even after repeated explanation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bynder is a central media library where we can put all our stock images, own images (made for marketing purposes), videos, brochures and other marketing materials that everyone in the company can freely access. By being able to control the level of access people have (editing rights, admin rights,...), the platform allows a lot of flexibility while at the same time making sure that only a few people keep control over it. It also saves a lot of time for our marketing professionals because instead of having to search different kinds of storage places (intranet, OneDrive, ...) for a certain asset, it's all in Bynder and can be easily found by using the different search options.

"Excellent DAM tool & customer interaction"

What do you like best?

+ Ease of use

+ Well designed and easily customizable

+ Expertise within the Bynder team

+ Taxonomy and finding files faster than in standard file storage toosl

What do you dislike?

> The collections menu could be better utilized as when you have more than 100 collections becomes had

> As you use more Bynder tool and add modules, the pricing becomes expensive in comparison with alternatives

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's extremely important to first understand what problems you wish to solve in your business and if a Digital Asset Management (DAM) tool will be able to solve that problem, independently of the vendor. If a DAM tool does solve your problem, then don't only look at features, but also culture and where the vendor is headed. I believe Bynder is on the right track, with an innovative approach to branding and the tool is extremely easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

+ Collaboration with resellers and partners by giving easy access to our marketing collateral

+ Creation of fast content for sales purposes (e.g. flyer templates)

+ Finding marketing collateral fast and help onboarding new hires

"I (Mostly) Heart Bynder"

What do you like best?

The best part of the Bynder's DAM module is that it has empowered our marketers to be able to find things on their own, see the brand guidelines, and know what is already "brand approved" in one place. By having featured collections, we can present new and interesting materials that others may not know about in an easy to find way that gets the new assets in our stakeholders hands more quickly than ever before.

The best part of the Bynder's Workflow module is how intuitive and easy it is for our stakeholders and legal teams to review, annotate and provide feedback in a timely manner to our creative team. With the feedback easily documented, the creative team can more easily make changes or have chats with the stakeholder to solve a problem or get a question answered quickly.

What do you dislike?

I wish the DAM module could work more seamlessly with the workflow module, so it is easier to transition finished projects into the asset library (DAM) once they are completed in the workflow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had teams working on, developing, and keeping completed assets in silos. Final files were in emails, on desktops, different servers and with no real way to centralize our marketing materials and efforts, and no brand control over what was out there for people to use. Now we can audit what is available, and approve what others upload to the the DAM. With one central location for people to find files, guidelines, images and inquire about projects, we are much more efficient in providing people what they need, and ensuring brand compliance.

"Ideal solution for fast growing companies, scaling their marketing efforts globally"

What do you like best?

The benifits of being able to store, share and distribute marketing assets is undisputed. I like the DIY template module best, it helps us scale like never before. we´re pushing out templates on a daily base, while seeing it use increase every day. we´re loking forward rolling it out for our partners to use.

What do you dislike?

The DIY template module is fairly new, so there is still some functionality and usability to fix. Never the less we allready see the effects of using it. And the Bynder team is fast in their response and fixing issues on the go.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plan some time for training of your staff, invite the Bynder implementation team over to work on the implementation along with your in-house team. Spend time on understanding roles, user rights and permissions before negotiating the contract and deciding on which user levels to include. Invest in training your creatives on how to build DIY templates, this will pay off in the end. Request Mike during the technical Implementation, ask Jaakko for help on the Templates, and we have really good experience with Jiska & Klaas as a project manager. Styleguide CMS is very limited and not user friendly, consider iframing your own in.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Storing marketing assest in one single location, sharing and distributing marketing assets within the company and with our valued partners. Scaling marketing creation througout the organisation.

"Best CMS system I've used yet"

What do you like best?

Is Bynder perfect? No. But compared to basecamp or an internal system, they are significantly better. Additionally, they are new enough that they may be willing to add certain features if you push hard enough. At least they would at the beginning of our contract.

What do you dislike?

Playing off what I liked, Bynder is slow to respond to issues. And when you're entire Marketing creative department is working in the system—that's not really viable. Also, the one thing I miss about Basecamp is that you could see a list of your own actions, which was great for filling in timesheets. Our Bynder only shows a list of everyone's most recent actions. And if you have active PMs, that means it's all just basic job creation / steps.

Other items of note:

- The file previews are mediocre at best (download is always preferred)

- Comments system is a bit lacking, and comments often block the text they're referring to

Recommendations to others considering the product

While you could implement it solely for reviewing files. I suggest an all-or-nothing approach. Use it for everything or don't use it at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collecting all our assets in one place + providing a single place for stakeholders to review and provide feedback on marketing creative. Such a big improvement over using an internal server or working across emails. Plus, it saves all the comments for reference later!

"Meets our current needs"

What do you like best?

We moved from Dropbox to Bynder and really like the ability to now tag assets based on various criteria so that our sales force can filter/find assets more easily. We love the visibility and reporting into what our team is actually using. And the sales team really enjoys the ability to quickly create collections of assets to share with prospects and clients.

What do you dislike?

The most relevant assets do not surface to the top, so now that we have 500+ assets, our sales team is having trouble quickly finding what they need.

Bynder is great for what it is (digital asset management). The next evolution for us will probably be something that is more focused on "just-in-time" delivery of assets within the CRM, which Bynder cannot do. But it is working well and much better than our old Dropbox approach.

Our implementation rep was not strong and we have an unfortunately poor roll-out with our sales team. We were able to remedy this on our own over time. We have also changed account managers several times in 2 years.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Single source of truth for accurate / up-to-date marketing materials. Easier searching/filtering for assets. Easy sharing of collections of assets with those outside the company. Reporting into who is using the system and what assets are being used. All of these things together help our sales force better communicate with clients/prospects, and help marketing measure how well we are enabling our sales force, while maintaining brand consistency.

"We have been very satisfied with the basic Bynder portal."

What do you like best?

Bynder's interface is very user friendly and easy to navigate. Staff have found it intuitive and easy to navigate through the search and filter features to find what they need.

What do you dislike?

We recently added the Bynder Guidelines feature. This feature is not as intuitive - either for the admin or the end user. We hope Bynder will add additional functionality to make this tool easier to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great interface for first-time DAM users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Storing assets, searching and finding assets, organizing assets. The benefits we've realized include better asset integrity, time saved finding the asset needed, better use of assets because they are easily accessible.

"Easy to configure and customize"

What do you like best?

The admin interface and capabilities are well beyond any other DAMs I've used. Bynder offers an incredible amount of customization, and so much of that is in the admin's hands as opposed to relying on the product or vendor. This speeds up implementation and general management since you do not need to wait on another party to do some of the set-up. So much of the management of Bynder is in your hands that you really feel in control.

The level of customization and the modules and add-ons really make the portal feel like your own. Many users didn't realize they were using Bynder; they just thought it was a website, since the URL can be customized, too.

What do you dislike?

The amount of customization options can be overwhelming. If there is something specific you need setup in your portal, it is almost certain that it can be done. Bynder support is available to help, and their knowledge base has all the answers you need. But when first implementing your portal, the blank canvas in front of you can seem overwhelming since there are so many options and settings.

Once it's set-up, there are regular feature enhancements. A dedicated administrator is a must because the tool is always improving. And just like with implementation, there are so many features and options, it can feel overwhelming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start small and focus on one aspect or you may feel overwhelmed. Bynder does a lot and solved a lot of issues for us, but we were most successful when we took a step back and created a detailed gameplan for the implementation. You cannot solve every issue over night!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bynder is a great way to centralize assets and bring related processes together into a single tool. Asset management, content creation, proofing, workflows, and content delivery can be so siloed at organizations, even though they are related and dependent on one another. Bynder helps bring it all together.

"A very flexible and customisable DAM with great support"

What do you like best?

As an admin, I love the fact that I can make a lot of adjustments to the system myself from metaproperty management to design adjustments without always having to reach out for a designer. If at times I do need further help, the support staff is incredibly responsible and knowledgable.

What do you dislike?

As adjustable as things are, Bynder seems pretty strict with group permissions and I would personally prefer if more adjustments could be made on a user-to-user basis rather than it always affecting an entire group of users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe that the more assets you have, the more beneficial Bynder's organisation and structure will be to you. For really small databases something more basic might do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a gallery, we're dealing with a huge amount of hi-res image material being shared between employees, collectors, journalists and publishers. To have one single access and share point where we can not only host our material but also track when and who it's been shared with is absolutely crucial.

"Fantastic asset management system"

What do you like best?

Bynder have absolutely fantastic customer service, and very much hold your hand every step of the way - from designing and setting up the system, to implementing it within your organisation. There is so much scope for creativity, and you can customise the system to have it exactly as you require.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike here, takes a little while to sort out teething problems - and users never end up using the system exactly as intended - but that's all part of the process, and bynder are very responsive and helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In terms of how it has affected our workload - it has shaved off at least 5 hours per week finding and sharing assets with the rest of the organisation - leaving the designers to do more design work!

"The best solution for our Marketing automation operation!"

What do you like best?

The interface is really intuitive and for us as OS X user feels at home. Next to the interface the workflow and extensions are the USP's for us. Bynder seems like the product that can grow on our pace.

What do you dislike?

We're moving towards more clients that want in depth brand information. The announced Brand Pages will definitely help us with that. Not a big dislike but the roadmap can always go faster if you ask us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To really see and feel the system you have to setup a demo and work with it. We tried Bynder and we can never go back, it's an important part of our workflow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We where looking for a DAM that could also help us with automating a lot of our processes. Bynder is now our primary workflow for everything around marketing and we even get the application and communication team on board.

"Becoming agile using Bynder"

What do you like best?

Bynder has enabled us to create a one stop shop for brand assets, removing internal boundaries. Compared to our earlier tools we have doubled the number of users (and still gaining). We have quadrupled our number of shared assets. The tool has made our agency network more visible and accessible internally. But what we like best is cropping and color search, plus the chat function.

What do you dislike?

The open structure. Finding and sharing projects with colleagues especially in production workflow can be a challenge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Discuss roadmap

Join the shared customer group, a great initiative

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving dismantling silo's and enabling most recent asset use, always up to date.

Our benefits are more internal sharing of assets and one stop shop.

"A Digital Asset Management System to get Excited About"

What do you like best?

I have to say that my first point of contact with Bynder sold me on the software immediately. Having dealt with other DAM system sales people, her enthusiasm, pitch, and in-depth knowledge of the software she was selling was contagious and immediately catapulted Bynder to the top of our list.

They are great to work with! Our implementation team were diligent in guiding us towards creating our customized version of their software. Some of my favorite features are related assets and automatically created versions. For example, when we upload an Illustrator file, it creates a high resolution PDF, JPG, PNG, and GIF. Which saves me and the other members of our team time.

What do you dislike?

I really couldn't be happier as this is a much improved system than what we had been working with before. The only thing I would ask for is more best-use practices and visual examples in their help section and during the implementation process to help people visualize and structure their assets in the best way possible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can't go wrong working with Bynder! Super-helpful and willing to work with you to create the best asset management system for your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a small in-house marketing team for an international company. We have over 20 brands, companies, and subsidiaries, which creates a large amount of assets that we were having trouble keeping organized and easily accessible. Working with Bynder created the perfect way for us to quickly upload and share assets, categorize them under a common language, and archive them for reference.

"Good software, somewhat too feature-heavy for our taste"

What do you like best?

We liked the ease of use and how easy assets could be tagged properly and found in the system. Also, the support was awesome, their customer success managers provided solutions for our problems and made some custom filters in the system.

What do you dislike?

It was pricey for our company size and userbase, that's why we reverted to a simpler solution. There were many modules that we didn't use.

Also upload speed from our office in France was really slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you know what you want to do with your digital media assets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizing our global media assets to upload for our graphic design teams + access to these files by our 3rd parties (external).

"Syngenta Trinity - Project Implementation Phase - Project Consultant"

What do you like best?

Bart, Helena and Grant: they are super-professional and act as exceptional customer and project managers, brainstorming with us ways to improve the Trinity platform and our user experience. They react fast to our requests, offer standard and out-of-the-box solutions, and help us keep the speed of our project.

I also like the simplicity of Bynder's DAM: in general terms is very easy to understand for the standard computer user and solves the core problem it targets. It is a "no-brainer" solution.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I have the feeling that, as a rapidly escalating start-up, Bynder is finding customers faster than it increases its capacity to support them. We would wish faster response to technical issues sometimes (not response from the project managers, who are exceptional, but in terms of upload speeds, bug resolution...).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have four clear KPI groups:

- Improve "on-brand" quality of marketing assets

- Increase marketing campaign effectiveness

- Reduce advertising and promotion expenses

- Create a global marketing for the corporation

"Great tool with great support!"

What do you like best?

It's not just an out of the box online tool, but it's fully customizable to match your needs and brand.

If we have any problems, the guys from support are very quick to respond and have a solution ready in a couple of days.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of extra tools/plugins/modules you can add to your brand portal, but most of them aren't free and aren't cheap either. A standard, built-in plugin to import assets in InDesign would be a great feature, but I'm not willing to pay for it every month + setup costs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time before launching the portal. Good preparation and simulating some scenarios greatly improve the quality and functionality of your portal. Don't overdo it on the amount of different categories and tags. Keep it dynamic!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a large folder on our cloud filled with pictures taken throughout the years. Most of these pictures contained multiple products, so it was very hard to give a good name or description to each photograph. We ended up with duplicating a lot of pictures and adding them to multiple, separate folders (1 for each product).

Binder solved this problem immediately by working with categories and tags. The platform is so easy to use, my colleagues quickly became familiar with the system and they use it a lot. This way, we have great control over what pictures are being used in external- and internal communication.

"If you build it they will come"

What do you like best?

The functionality offered by this platform is extensive. If you know what you want, what your "customers" or users want and what they need the tool is great. The possibilities really are endless and integrating all our marketing processes and assets in a single place is great.

What do you dislike?

Its too much some times. In trying to solve it all the capacity of the system can overwhelm and you have the risk of spreading your system too thin and not getting the most out of the modules you really need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

know what you want and get organized before rolling this out. Rushing the rollout will not help in the long run. Get organized and get it right.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a global company and having a cloud based marketing automation portal has helped us help or national and international teams go to market more effectively with centralized, managed, brand accurate materials.

"Easy-to-use for managing and sharing images, designs and other assets internally and for clients"

What do you like best?

Next to the quick drop-and-send feature of Bynder, once inside the portal it's very easy for us to manage images, mockups, designs and other digital assets. Best of all is that it works good for internal use, but more importantly also for clients. With the Workflow feature, we're able to take to our clients in our design journey and collaborate better during the design process by gaining direct, contextual feedback.

What do you dislike?

It's quite hard to think of a feature or anything that we really dislike, but as we are heavy users of the collections feature within Bynder, it would make our workflow even better if the sharing capabilities of collections would become better over time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bynder gave us a smarter and faster workflow during and after the design process. And that's a win without even fully using all of the powerful possibilities that Bynder has to offer.

"Bynder - the easiest and most liked system we use"

What do you like best?

Reliability and ease of use are key in on-boarding a medium-large organisation onto the system. Having a central asset bank like Bynder is a great help.

It's really easy to use and most new personnel just 'get it' instantly. The most often received piece of feedback from new users is how much of an improvement the system is, as compared to network storage or cloud-based document storage (like Google Drive or Dropbox).

Make no mistake, it is endlessly customisable and can be made as verbose as your company needs, while maintaining a solid interface to help guide users through the required processes.

What do you dislike?

Minor interface glitches occasionally, bot those are promptly remedied by ongoing release cycles or support intervention.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure you have a very good idea of the structure you want to implement. Because Bynder is so customisable, the majority of the work in this regard has to be done on a fairly abstract level (with help from your account manager). It is best to do this before you go live, as changes are easily made, but may not be easily accepted amongst the users. Consider what Attributes are needed and which ones will only add unneeded work to the users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to centralise images and display them internally for staff to see how much content we produce.

Furthermore, we are going to use Bynder's image CDN for the website currently in design, which will help reduce hosting costs and improve media availability to our wider audiences around the world.

We are also able to use Bynder's dropbox functionality to work with external asset suppliers, without the need for maintaining accounts for non-staff users, while maintaining reliability and security of the system.

"World class solution for Brand Marketing Management"

What do you like best?

Bynder is all about user experience: I am impressed most by the ease of use, sophistication of development and constant push to make it even easier and better.

What do you dislike?

The only thing about Bynder I dislike is that it’s not a household name. Once people see it, they love it - however because it’s a new solution specifically in the US, brands can be reluctant to try something they haven’t heard of.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I see in Bynder EVERYTHING we ever wanted from a brand content management solution. And trust me, I don’t jump into things. We did the the leg work, the research, and found that Bynder is the portal (the one central source of truth from where all things are organized, centralized and easily shared) we’ve been dreaming about.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We provide marketing content management services; the kind that help companies organize their content and keep it organized by creating structure and workflow that’s easy to deploy, use and, most importantly, maintain.

"Bynder - a modern, user-optimized online approval system for entertainment license properties"

What do you like best?

Our company works in the children licensing business with various major national and international licensees. All of them have special needs concerning artwork delivery and approval process. When BYNDER initially presented its software to us, we had serious doubts of this program can be customized to our particular working procedures. Two years later, we have no idea how we ever worked without our brandportal. We have the feeling this software was written only for us. Same applies to the German customer service. Whenever we ask for assistance, there is the same friendly person answering us promptly, highly professional and with an admirable patience. To make it short: Thanks BYNDER we are able to offer our licensees a modern, user-optimized online solution. Former time-consuming working procedures are now transparent, efficient and easy-to-use. We love it!

What do you dislike?

Would be great to have an tool to create simple newsletters or print ads out of BYNDER.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can clearly target users by giving them access rights.

Sensitive artwork files are protected.

Every steps done is clearly documented.

We avoid massive amounts of emails, no circulation of DVDs and USBs anymore.

"Excellent experience using Bynder"

What do you like best?

Bynder is an extremely user-friendly program, which allows everyone in my company access to essential assets and information. I love how easy it is to figure out the system, and how clear each instruction is given. Because of Bynder, I have a platform for sharing large files (pdfs, jpegs, pngs, etc) with not only those in my company, but also anyone else we may be doing business with. As Project Manager, it is so helpful to have a program which helps me organize each step and makes it easy for me to follow deadlines.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I do not like about Bynder is that there is not a way to create folders within Collections or Categories.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Bynder, we were experiencing difficulty staying organized. Now we are able to clearly direct people to the site, where they can access the assets they are looking for.

"Bynder Review, Ryan Donovan"

What do you like best?

Apart from the ease of using the system, I have found Bynder's client teams to be remarkable. Olga, Emily, and Chrissie are helpful, responsive, and knowledgeable about everything I needed to get Bynder set up with my company.

What do you dislike?

During the trainings, sometimes the portal's features are explained in a somewhat esoteric way - as in anyone with previous knowledge of the system would understand, but my colleagues with no DAM experience were somewhat confused. A small and easily fixed issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My organization had 10+ years of photos and videos stored on a disorganized array of drives around our office, so I'm solving an organization and consolidation issue.

The benefits I've realized are how Bynder can be integrated to our other work tasks, such as using embed codes for hosting content from Bynder on our blog.

"Bynder supports our visual brand"

What do you like best?

We love how search and filters work best. But we also like the design of the platform; its clean, intuitive and easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

Only being able to review (50) images at a time from the waiting room.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are lots of DAM products on the market, know your audience and features needed. The modules that Bynder provides helps expand the user experience, but the integration from a UX perspective could use some work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to globally have one space for our photography, finished video and marketing materials while creating efficiencies between image creators, graphic designers and our audience.

"Great tool for inter-office information management"

What do you like best?

What makes Bynder different from most other DAM tools is its intuitive user interface, which renders long trainings or trouble-shooting (almost) obsolete. We can easily share information between our network of international offices, and help them access vital information on the spot.

What do you dislike?

While the asset management feature in itself was quickly set up and running, the Guidelines tool took way longer than expected. It has only very basic layout options and does not match the excellence of the DAM component.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With offices around the world it is quite time-consuming to share information between offices. Bynder has offered the best way to make our assets accessible, searchable, and downloadable with a minimum effort of time.

"Bynder is the perfect solution (for me)...."

What do you like best?

The fact that it's so easy to use, for me as the person who is in direct contact with Bynder, as well for the other users within a company. I can find all of our product-photos easily and download or share them without any problems. And when there are problems, doesn't matter what kind of problem, Bynder always helps us figuring it out.

What do you dislike?

The only con is that I have to upload everything and have to add all the information by myself, which is understandable but it costs me a lot of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Bynder is easy to use and for everyone easy to acces. You don't have to know a lot of computers to use it.

And if you don't know a thing, Bynder's helpdesk is really fast and helpfull.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems we had was a incomplete database, now we have a complete database that we can acces from everywhere (if you have internet acces). Something that is quite helpfull for my collegues when they're with a client. They can also download several sizes of a picture, that has spared me a lot of time.

"Bynder & Brand Portal review"

What do you like best?

Having all assets, real-time visual brand guidelines, workflows at one place makes this a great tool for colleagues and partners.

What do you dislike?

Custom build implementations may have some extra time or costs, in the co-operation (also from our side) we can actively improve this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Facilitating of our brand assets and the right use of the guidelines does not have to be explained anymore by a specialist, but also can be found by the users themselves. This is time efficient, real-time.

"Bynder allows us to create an extensive archive of assets for our sales and marketing teams globally"

What do you like best?

Bynder is an extremely simple system to use, which has ensured adoption throughout our business with minimal training. It allows our Group marketing team to maintain brand consistency globally, while also creating a library of assets for our local teams to use as best practice.

What do you dislike?

Having used the Bynder system fro 8 months, there is very little to dislike about the system. This is a result of continuous system updates being made, and regular feedback sessions with our Bynder account manager.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Following rapid growth Perform Group required a system to improve the consistency of marketing and sales literature globally. Bynder provides a great solution for our Group marketing team to upload the latest campaigns and assets, which can be accessed by our marketing and sales team across the world.

The archive facility ensures best practice examples are shared, resulting in a reduction in duplication of campaigns.

"More of a repository than an organizational tool"

What do you like best?

I like the search function, so long as people who are managing the assets are titling correctly.

What do you dislike?

Don't think the tagging / organizational capabilities are very strong. Also, the load times are very slow on average.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a really clear way to sort / tag / organize your content and that it is clearly communicated to users as well as administrators.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sharing sales enablement materials, marketing assets as well as source files. I don't think sales has really been using it effectively. Sales people can tend to be very simple creatures, and the software is a bit under-intuitive.

"Great tool to centralize all your media"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use tool for our content department to find everything (all media) in one tool. You can centralize, share and store all media easily. It makes the job of our content/editors way more easy. Great!

What do you dislike?

It would be great to know what other functionalities (that we do not use/are can use better) are in the system. Consultation from bynder how we can optimize our current tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Centralized media storing, which made is possible to work more efficient and colleagues can find everything in 1 tool.

"A huge user interface with a lot of helpful functions"

What do you like best?

The easy way of uploading and managing your entire digital database and share it with other users.

What do you dislike?

Between the initialization phase and the operational workflow the communication between Bynder and our project management team was bit difficult, especially because Bynder is such a elaborate system and it was a big challenge for us, to understand all the functions that we get in a first step.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We searched for a long time for a solution to support our retailers and also the internal stakeholders with digital marketing and communication material in an easy way. With Bynder we found a solution who allows us in future to save time and ressources and strongen our market position in front of our clients and partners.

"Great DAM and workflow software"

What do you like best?

The ease of searching through the assets

What do you dislike?

Maintaining the users can be a pain; the request for a new account, when you approve that account you are being redirected to another screen (not in the screen you came from).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really a great tool; the flaws are there but the good stuff largely compensate for them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have within the organization gazillions SharePoint sites, emails, folders on the network or on personal computers containing branded assets and Bynder is helping us consolidating this into one global repository.

"An easy transition to our new DAM"

What do you like best?

The ease of searching through our archive with the new facetted search capabilities Bynder has afforded us.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the archive can be a little buggy and has gotten our web team hung up a few times, but generally the tech support is really good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The folks at Bynder have been really helpful and attentive and excited about implementing our DAM with us, and continue to be supportive and thoughtful today. I enjoy working with them and know that they will always do their best to help us problem-solve.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A better user experience and sharing platform for our photography archive across our organization.

"Project Manger"

What do you like best?

Asse bank and ability to share and centralize assets.

What do you dislike?

Workflow, needs more indesign support with the ability to upload indesign files as needed. Asset bank and Workflow are mostly disconnected, which makes it difficult to use. Need the ability to access files like a local drive or folder. Product management is difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a clear direction of how you want to use the tools before going to implementation

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Centralizing assets, so tim members and clients can store files in a centralized space. Allowing internal and external members to upload and share assets.

"Very modern interface, easy to use, self explanatory, reliable and lots of useful features."

What do you like best?

The resize and crop features make it easy for users to get exactly the image they need in the right size without the need to have an image editing solution at hand.

Also, having an interface that uses modern web technologies saves so many clicks and makes working with bynder very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the uploader seems to "forget" some of the info already entered.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having one common solution to provide marketing assets to multiple country organizations is extremely helpful and keeps everyone up-to-date.
