New Digital Asset Management Tool for SharePoint by pTools pTools, an enterprise content management vendor, announced new enhancements to its Enterprise CMS software for Microsoft SharePoint. It is now integrated with Equilibrium’s digital asset management software -- MediaRich DAM for SharePoint. Organizations can now use pTools Enterprise CMS to manage image and video assets, enhancing SharePoint deployments across the enterprise.

Main Partnership Benefits

As we know, SharePoint’s own DAM functionality is weak, and there’s a number of connectors on the market that help alleviate this problem -- with pTools and MediaRich's integration being one of them. pTools product architecture with Equilibrium’s MediaRich and SharePoint provides end-to-end Enterprise CMS software to customers that covers several areas in one platform: * Web content management * Digital asset management * Document collaboration * Records management Commenting on the partnership, Tom Skinner, managing director of pTools says: “This partnership with Equilibrium builds on pTools capabilities in image and workflow deployments.” The new partnership should benefit both pTools and their customers, as well as help Equilibrium to grow their international sales in the very active Irish and UK markets.
