Going live in two months with new solution

SLV was previously working with a familiar but outdated DAM system. Only a few file formats could be used with the on-premises software, which led to restrictions in day-to-day operations. The old system could have been converted to an all-encompassing media database with massively higher license costs and a very complex conversion process. However, the associated license model and the lack of cloud infrastructure also led to a decision against this solution and to explore the market for new options.

Individualization according to customer requirements

Due to the special workflows and habits of the potential users of the system, the search for product images in Tessa was customized according to customer requirements. An Akeneo plugin was installed that enables direct access from the Akeneo PIM to the existing media in Tessa. The interface of the digital asset management system was adapted to avoid potential performance problems with neighboring systems.


Maximum usability

The individual adaptation to the digital asset management system enables users at SLV to work efficiently with their media database. The time taken to search for product data images has been significantly reduced and all the information required is immediately available.

Future-proof system

Despite the special individualization of the digital asset management system according to customer requirements, Tessa DAM is fully updateable thanks to its modular design and provisions in the source code and is equipped for the challenges SLV will face in the future.

Automation of manual processes

Many workflows, such as the availability and processing of media in other countries, which previously involved a great deal of effort, can now be automated with TESSA DAM and realized without further intervention.

Always up-to-date product images

Thanks to Tessa DAM, the customer's product data images are always up-to-date in all channels such as the web store or print media. Catalog production lasting several weeks has been made considerably easier thanks to the automated extraction of currently required product images.
