WE'RE A DAM GOOD COMPANY

In 2010, MediaValet built the first 100% cloud-based digital asset management system – from scratch – on Microsoft’s global cloud platform, Azure. Since then, MediaValet has led the burgeoning new cloud-based digital asset management (DAM) industry.

30 years ago
There were no digital assets to manage.

With the emergence of digital content, the DAM software industry was born to meet the digital asset management needs of large companies.
20 years ago
With the emergence of the Cloud and MediaValet’s help, the cloud-based digital asset management industry was forged to meet the DAM needs of all companies – large and small.

Built exclusively on Microsoft’s massive, global cloud infrastructure, consisting of twenty-three highly secure dedicated Azure data centres around the world , MediaValet is uniquely positioned to provide companies of all sizes and industries unmatched accessibility, scalability and security.

Save the Children New Zealand Selects MediaValet to Streamline Collaboration

Vancouver, BC – May 24th, 2017 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, is happy to announce that Save the Children New Zealand, an international NGO that promotes children’s rights around the world, has selected MediaValet to store and manage their rapidly growing collection of digital assets and streamline collaboration with external partners.

Save the Children has 30 member organizations around the world, working to deliver change for children in around 120 countries. The first branch of Save the Children was established in New Zealand in 1947. Today, Save the Children responds to relieve the suffering of children affected by war and natural disaster, and works to make sure children are healthy, protected and have the opportunity to learn. Sharing real stories from around the world – through images, videography and case studies – is crucial to Save the Children achieving its fundraising goals. One of the biggest challenges is being able to collect, organize and manage large volumes of assets from a multitude of sources.

Before MediaValet, Save the Children used multiple local servers, popular online fileshare services and email to organize, store and share their assets. The team found this approach to managing their assets increasingly difficult as the number of photographers and assets they worked with continued to increase. Rights management, version control and tracking were particularly challenging issues for the team.

“MediaValet delivers a solution that is both technically robust and simple to use,” commented Gareth Davies, Fundraising Director at Save the Children New Zealand.  “No matter who we share assets with or allow to access MediaValet, they’ll feel at ease working with our assets. MediaValet makes day-to-day activities a breeze while giving us the peace of mind that our assets are safe and secure at all times.”

Save the Children is working towards three key goals ensuring that by 2030, no child dies from preventable causes before the age of 5, all children have the opportunity to learn to read and write and that violence against all children is no longer tolerated in safe environments.

“Productivity, ease of use and security are always top of mind when planning new features and integrations,” commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO at MediaValet. “We’re delighted to be working with Save the Children New Zealand and to have the chance to help them achieve their 2030 goal.”

Air North Selects MediaValet to Protect 40 Years of Media Assets
Vancouver, BC – May 10th, 2017 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, is happy to announce that Air North, Yukon’s Airline, has selected MediaValet to create a global media hub that will support its expanding sales and marketing operations and to protect its 40 years of historical assets.

Vancouver, BC – May 10th, 2017 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, is happy to announce that Air North, Yukon’s Airline, has selected MediaValet to create a global media hub that will support its expanding sales and marketing operations and to protect its 40 years of historical assets.

Founded in 1977, Air North offers scheduled service flights throughout the Yukon and surrounding areas, as well as to Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Yellowknife, and Ottawa. Air North also has an active charter services operation with bases in Yukon as well as Vancouver and Edmonton. Some of its main customers include the B.C. Lions football team and its fans, as well as various luxury sport fishing lodges on Haida Gwaii, leisure companies in Reno and Tahoe, and energy companies in Alberta. With a diverse range of operations and a rich history, Air North has developed a large collection of digital assets that has become increasingly difficult to manage.

Before selecting MediaValet, Air North utilized various cloud-based file management and storage systems, on-premise servers, and staff’s desktop computers to store its digital assets. As a result, Air North has faced challenges in terms of being able to find and keep track of assets, manage the use of assets, and, most importantly, to protect critical assets from misuse and loss.

”As we celebrate our 40th anniversary and look back at all the amazing things we’ve achieved and been lucky enough to capture in various media formats, we’ve decided to take managing and protecting our assets seriously,“ commented Debra Ryan, Strategic Planning & Alliances Manager. ”We have finally made the decision to find a system that would not only protect our assets from the threat of being lost but to also help us manage and track the use of our assets. We chose MediaValet as we love their product, their team, and the way they do business.“

Having selected MediaValet’s core enterprise package, Air North will benefit from MediaValet’s industry-leading triple redundancy, geo-replication, and security features as well as MediaValet’s media rendering, version control and rights management modules.

“Air North’s struggle is not unique. Every single day companies call us with similar stories of asset loss, misuse, and inaccessibility,” commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO of MediaValet. “We’re excited to help Air North take control of their assets and give them the peace of mind that their assets are secure and well managed at all times. We’re confident we’ll not only save Air North time and money in marketing operations but also help them realize an immediate increase in the ROI of their historical and current media assets.”

About Air North

Air North, Yukon’s Airline, delivers genuine and authentic Yukon hospitality to travelers looking to explore the Yukon and other parts of Canada. Air North delivers a unique hands-on touch in all aspects of its business; in fact, President and co-founder, Joe Sparling, regularly operates as Boeing 737 captain on Air North’s flights. Air North is a main driver of socio-economic development in the North, for it is one of the largest private sector employers in the Yukon, employing over 300 Yukon-staff in addition to its 300+ staff based in Vancouver and its other Southern destinations. Further, one in fifteen Yukoners has an employment or equity stake in the Company, and the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation of the remote community of Old Crow, Yukon is a major shareholder.
