More than just Digital Asset Management

Tweak is built for fast-growing organizations who are demanding and detail orientated - just like ourselves. Digital asset management is a broadly used term ranging from SMB applications to full-enterprise, where we are positioned. Every feature is focused on our key mission - enabling brands to enable real-time marketing.

Metadata

Achieving
high productivity

Achieving productivity benefits with Tweak starts with the basic structure - creating a metadata structure that makes sense for the brand. The next step comes with curating digital assets into Collections, which can be shared to selected audiences.

Assets are never duplicated. The same assets can appear in multiple Collections with different user rights. Users will only ever see the assets that have been shared to them.

Collections are private to brand stakeholders or made public, accessible by anybody, with a password. Brand owners can enable public or private Collections with time-release and withdrawal.

The key point is that any change made to a Collection by the brand owner is immediately reflected in what users see.

Share Customized
Design

There are many circumstances where collateral created needs to be instantly shared with a wider audience. Output produced in Tweak's Brand Templates can be exported directly to Collections for sharing and download by other team members.

Search &

Filtration

Search and filtration are two ways of finding assets you need in Tweak. Filtration allows you, without specifying keywords, to filter all of your assets very quickly using the metadata you've added. For example, you may want to see all of your assets that relate to a particular department, which are royalty-free photos and which have a three star rating. You'll instantly see every asset which meets this criteria. Search allows you to target with more precision when you're looking to find something specific, by adding keywords. In search you've also got the option of boolean operators, AND, OR, NOT to drill down in more detail. With both methods, you can save the search criteria to use in the future.

Search

The standard text search searches within the fields in assets.

  • Title
  • Filename
  • Description
  • Copyright Notice
  • Author
  • Tags
  • Category
  • Copyright

Advanced
Search

Advanced search allows you to specifically search within the following additional metadata types with the option of adding multiple queries to the same search, using every available metadata source as well as Boolean operators.

Repeated searches can be saved for re-use, especially useful when multiple filters are in use. Searches can also be targeted to find text within documents.

Smart


Collections

Smart Collections use artificial intelligence to collect assets with a custom set of criteria, i.e., images with 3 stars rating, in the Category 'On Promotion'. Those images will automatically appear in the Smart Collection you've created. As new assets fit the criteria, they become visible to anyone with access to the Smart Collection.

Filtration

The customizable Filter panel is a fast way of finding assets. Regularly used filtration sets can be saved for re-use to save time.
Filtration opens include Label, File Type, Collection, Tags, Rating, Favourite, Custom Metadata Fields, Category, and Copyright Status.

Customization

At the heart of Tweak is our mission to empower marketers to work in real-time. To achieve this means that the platform we've built needs to be customized to a very high degree to meet sophisticated users' needs, each of which is very different. From critical decisions about the use of metadata right through to granular permissions and notifications, we've built our software to allow our users to make it their own. The features outlined here give an outline of some of the available customization options in Tweak.

Brand
Dashboard

The customizable Brand Dashboard can be customized with brand colors, image, logo and headline. Users can create shortcuts to gain fast access to filtration tools including Collections, Labels, Star Ratings, Favorites and Tags.
These shortcuts can be selected to appear on the brand on the brand dashboard;

Permissions

The account owner can set high-level permissions at a brand level to set the 'rules of the game' for your users. We'll guide you along the way in making the best decisions for your brand - and of course, you can change these settings in an instant at any time.

Notifications

Notifications are available for pretty much every action in Tweak, and there are very granular ways to control these to ensure that your team is fully informed. Notification options are available in the Brand Dashboard or by instant or digest based emails.

Custom 


Login Page

There's a choice of customizable layouts for the Tweak login page, which their teams will use. This page can include brand logo & imagery, brand colors, and text.

Custom Collection 


Headers

Collection Headers may be customized with a header image or brand color with a descriptive headline. Time-release options also appear on the brand header.

Public Collection 


Login Page

Brands owners can choose layouts for Public Collection login pages. There's an option to include Username and Password and include brand imagery, brand colors, and text.

Labels, Favourites,


Star Ratings

There are choices available for how Labels, Favourites & Star Ratings are used. Super Users select who can set and see these powerful search options.

What is


Metadata?

While you might use folders to keep your digital assets organized on your computer or shared drive, this is not the best way to organize assets using a sophisticated digital asset management tool like Tweak.

Instead, we use Metadata, which uses words, numbers, or data connected with each asset, which is the fastest way possible to ensure you'll find what you need in seconds.

Metadata is the information stored by Tweak, which allows assets to be found quickly by users. Metadata can come in categories or product tiers or seasons, or any other criteria that matter in your business.
Assets can be quickly searched or filtered by particular segments of metadata that have been added.

Some metadata is automatically available within assets and is captured by Tweak - file size, type (i.e., JPEG), and document creation data. Other metadata can be added by single images or in bulk to filter and search assets easily.

If your assets (particularly images) have embedded information, like copyright or caption details, that is imported on the fly when Tweak ingests your assets.

Adding 


Metadata

Tweak allows you to add metadata to facilitate the easy filtration of your assets in a way that suits your business. This helps you easily train your colleagues to search for and find assets using terms they use every day.

Ensuring that Metadata is consistent is vital to ensure that users have a good experience every time they use Tweak. More importantly, it gives them back the time they wasted when using an out-dated storage system.

Metadata
Options

Tweak has built multiple ways of creating and delivering metadata to ensure that we can cope with different industries and client needs. We suggest that you study the various options and only use what you need to ensure that your users can find what they need in seconds.

You can add another method if you need it later. Our customer support team are here to help you decide what's best for your brand.

Embedded 


Metadata

Tweak extracts valuable data embedded in your files during the upload process. The data extracted includes Title & Caption from imagery and original capture information like creation date and time. You can use this information for organizing and searching assets in Tweak.

Tags

Users can add tags to assets individually or in bulk. Commonly used tags are suggested, and artificial intelligence tags will suggest tags based on reading the subject matter of imagery.

Managed
Tags

Tweak allows users to manage which words users can use to tag assets so that everyone in your business can find files in the everyday terms for your business.

To create structure around the creation of tags so that regardless of who uploads assets, they are tagged consistently, so that users are certain of relevant search results.

Related 


Tags

Related tags allow Super Users to create relational databases based on the choice of keyword headings. So, if a user chooses the Heading 'Ladies' in a Fashion Store, it will automatically suggest brands that are available in that department and colors available in those brands. This process creates more accurate asset tagging and better search results.

Custom
Fields

Tweak permits custom fields to be created to capture important Metadata for fast filtration and search. By creating a custom field, it's possible to search that exact data precisely with an important piece of data like a product SKU or part number.
Custom fields can be set up using date and time, text, numbers, true/false or a dropdown list.
