It is always a wise thing to do to place data in the system, which is best suited to handle the type of data in question. In other words, you would probably not host your web shop in your financial system.
XMedia is regarded as being among the world's leading systems for storing, retrieving, and making assets widely available. XMedia works seamlessly together with your product database, thus making product information accessible right next to your assets in XMedia.
Integrating XMedia with your product database eliminates the need to import metadata already available in the product database. It also allows you to search for assets based on product information. This feature is a real time saver when searching for assets as users can make the search based on terms they are already familiar with from other systems.
There is also much time to be saved by automating transfers from XMedia. Applying XMedia as the central archive for assets, the system can be used as a key source for data for other systems. For instance, in a web shop, data mainly consists of product images and basic product information. XMedia is able to supply images, in the right size, resolution and quality direct to the web shop automatically. Every time an image is changed, removed from or added to XMedia, the changes are automatically reflected in the web shop database. If so required, XMedia can also transfer the product information to the web shop database, or this can come directly from the basic product database.
With XMedia there is no limit to integration. At Spring XPress we are experienced in all kinds of integrations and we will be more than happy to discuss with you what the ideal solution is for your company.
