Why Upgrade to Uploader 2.0

What is Uploader

Uploader provides a simple and easy to use upload portal for content to be added into your Cumulus solution. Most often used for external users such as photographers, agencies, and remotely located workers who are required to upload single or bulk content. During this process the uploading user will be able to enter metadata.


Uploading users are not exposed to any of your existing content and do not need to be trained on usage of Cumulus interfaces such as Web Client.


DataBasics has created Uploader 2.0 to support as many uploading users as you like with only a single Cumulus license required. It can be configured to match your branding, and the functionality can be customised if you require something more than the standard solution.


If you currently have an upload portal as part of your Cumulus configuration, and are covered by software maintenance agreement, then Uploader 2.0 is available to you at no extra charge with your next Cumulus upgrade.
