Everyone knows Cumulus as one of the best digital asset management systems around, and most people know that Cumulus manages images and audio visual files very well. But there are many that don’t know that Cumulus can also manage office documents like Word files, PDFs and PowerPoint presentations really well too.
The RoboFlow plug-in is an automation engine for Cumulus that goes beyond the standard functions of Cumulus with its inbuilt Scheduler, to provide more extensive capabilities for streamlining workflows and improve asset lifecycle management. It allows you to automate tasks that would normally require extensive manual intervention and to integrate smoothly with other systems.
Cumulus provides a wide variety of tools to support collaboration workflows between colleagues, freelancers and/or sales partners. There are status-based workflows and action type based workflows. Action-based workflows include
• user-defined actions such as Asset Actions
• event-based actions or Trigger Actions
• time-based actions using the inbuilt Scheduler Actions.
However, a status-based workflow means files must go through a defined approval process before they are officially available for use – effectively removing the ad-hoc nature of these collaborations.
One of the many new features introduced with the release of Cumulus X and successive updates is that of custom asset relations – the ability to create your own customised asset relationships that suit your business.
