Enterprise Content Buying made simple

Easily search, find and purchase image, video and other content types from all major content sources. License compliance and cost transparency included.


Content is king, no doubt about it…

But the road to the final result is stony. It takes me ages to search the content portals for the perfect image. The request for purchase approval is sent to my colleague by email. Then, on the network drive, the asset can only be found by its article number. And wait a minute – what’s the license for that image? By the way, how much of my budget did I already spend this month?

Time, nerves, budget – pushed to the limit!

There should be a better way to do this – right?

At the same time, we make sure that our colleagues all over the world only purchase unlimited content licenses, which ensures later reuse of the assets.
