Dalet Flex for teams: Professional Tools for Smaller Media Organizations
Ahead of the 2022 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Dalet unveiled Dalet Flex for teams, a new way to tap into the power of Dalet Flex, as a service. What are the benefits of this new model and who is it geared for?By Mathieu Zarouk | 05/24/22
Getting high-value content to audiences is not getting any easier. In a world where remote work is increasingly common, and media is consumed through dozens of different platforms, it can be hard to keep up! Large libraries can be spread across multiple locations, on-premises or in the cloud; and making sure the right content, in the right version and format, ends up on the right platform at the right time could give headaches to anyone.
With a powerful combination of web-based, user-friendly tools and powerful automation capabilities, Dalet Flex helps media-rich organizations:
- Centralize – Gather their content in a consolidated repository, build a valuable and living archive
- Manage – Organize their repository, enrich, curate, and share content
- Collaborate – Support a hybrid or remote workforce, review and approve media assets with purpose-built tools
- Orchestrate – Drive their media supply chain with a workflow engine
- Connect – Integrate their content repository with 3rd party tools and automatically leverage additional tools, such as Artificial Intelligence services
- Monitor – Control on-going processes in a single, web-based, monitoring center
- Distribute – Automate content packaging and distribution across traditional, digital, and social platforms
- Save – Reduce storage costs with better and automated management of assets’ lifecycle
Bringing Professional Media Tools To Creative Teams Everywhere
Dalet Flex has been an enterprise-grade solution for the last eight years, serving the needs of large media organizations including the likes of Public Broadcasting System affiliates, Arsenal Football Club, Audi, and HBO, just to name a few. Indeed, the adoption of Media Asset Management and Supply Chain orchestration solutions usually comes with advanced deployment and integration projects.
But what about smaller, independent creators and content owners who would find this commitment outside of budget and outside of practical application? Still, these teams need the power and the applications of Dalet Flex, offering customizable work environments, automation (with easily edited workflows), and purpose-built media tools.
Well, we have good news for them: Dalet Flex is now available as a service.
Your Media Workflow Solution As-A-Service
While Dalet already had several products available as SaaS in its portfolio, such as Dalet AmberFin and Dalet Media Cortex, it became evident to us that Dalet Flex should also be available as a service.
Success with SaaS, both for Dalet and the customer, relies on faster deployments of upgrades, ready-to-execute workflows, and the ability to offer Dalet Flex at an affordable price point to get started. But this is only the tip of the iceberg: it is the revamped customer experience that really makes the difference, with better on-boarding experience but also improved Customer Success services and Knowledge resources.
Another huge advantage of SaaS is being able to offer Dalet Flex for teams in a variety of plans and packages for what your business needs. Ten people on your team? We have a Dalet Flex for teams plan designed for you. What if your media management crew is fifty? Again, we have you covered.
Focus On Your Craft, We Take Care Of The Rest
Cloud-native from its inception, Dalet Flex for teams is completely hosted, monitored, and maintained by Dalet, in our partner environment: Amazon Web Services (AWS).
This means that while you work on your various creative projects and produce the best media for your needs, Dalet delivers upgrades for new and innovative features, and ensures the maintenance and security of the products’ underlying infrastructure. This represents significant savings especially for smaller organizations without advanced IT and DevOps capabilities, avoiding the constant purchasing of upgrades or waiting for the one major upgrade that completely changes your operations. Upgrades happen gradually, avoiding disruption of your productivity.
Perhaps that is the biggest appeal of the development for Dalet Flex for teams: the encouragement of creativity by letting you focus solely on your craft and your business. This was the inspiration in developing and releasing Dalet Flex for teams.
