Professional Features

The Asset Bank Professional and Enterprise licenses include additional features that meet the needs of larger organisations.

SSO Integration

If, for example, your company uses an LDAP server, e.g. Windows Active Directory or Google OpenID, Asset Bank allows users to use their existing username and password to log in. View all of our current SSO options.

Asset Types

Enables you to set up different groups of metadata fields for different types of asset (as many as you need) and to define complex relationships between asset records (e.g. parent/child). Clients use this for various things including:

  • Having a 'Producer' field for video assets, that does not appear on image assets
  • Having model release forms that are uploaded as child assets, that themselves have no metadata fields (to avoid re-keying information that is inherited from the parent asset)
  • Having a child asset that is a ZIP file that contains the artwork files, fonts, etc. that were used to create the parent asset, e.g. a PDF brochure


Asset Bank provides a RESTful API so that other applications can add assets and metadata, or query the system to enable the retrieval of matching assets.

CMS Integration

For a seamless user experience, your image library software should integrate with your CMS to enable users to select and resize the images they want to use. Asset Bank has a generic module that will work with almost any CMS platform, and is straightforward to configure. Read more about our CMS Integration Module.

In addition to this module we also have specific CMS integrations for WordPress and Sitecore.

Organisational Units

Asset Bank allows you to divide management of different areas (e.g. different geographical locations) to different sets of administrators for maximum efficiency.
Read our Organisational Units Admin Guide.


You can create a multilingual version of Asset Bank for the languages of your choice. This then defaults to the users native language when they arrive at the site, allowing them to change this via a language pick list.

How it works

At any point in time we can export all Asset Bank user content (text visible on the user interface, email templates and asset metadata), allowing you to arrange for translation to the languages of your choice. We then re-import this data and configure Asset Bank to show this information to the relevant users.
